By Brian Knapp May 7, 2016

Two heavy hitters with suspect chins have been chosen to carry the Ultimate Fighting Championship flag into a new market.

Alistair Overeem clocked in at 244 pounds ahead of his heavyweight showdown with Andrei Arlovski (248) in the UFC Fight Night 87 main event on Sunday at Ahoy Rotterdam in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Co-headliners Antonio Silva (266) and Stefan Struve (265) were also cleared without any unforeseen hitches at Saturday’s official weigh-in.
