UFC news: update on Overeem vs. Dos Santos, Mark Hunt

On Twitter, Dana White said the promotion was going to keep the planned Junior Dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem fight intact as opposed to have Dos Santos fight someone else, such as Mark Hunt, on 5/25.

Overeem today said that he had a slight quadriceps tear that led to him pulling out of the 5/25 date.

Hunt had told Ariel Helwani yesterday that he would accept a 5/25 fight with Dos Santos as a replacement for the injured Overeem.

White did not say when Overeem vs. Dos Santos would take place.
