On Sunday, May 8, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 87: Overeem vs. Arlovski from the Ahoy Rotterdam in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

In the night’s main event, former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem takes on former UFC titleholder Andrei Arlovski. The Dutchman Overeem enters the contest having won three straight, including a second-round TKO of another former champion, Junior dos Santos, in his last outing. Arlovski, meanwhile, saw a six-fight winning streak of his own come to an end in January, when he was stopped by Stipe Miocic in just 54 seconds.

More heavyweights will be in action in the night’s co-main as former title challenger Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva clashes with another Dutch giant, Stefan Struve. Both fighters are in desperate need of win, as Silva has won just once in his last six outings, and Struve has dropped three of his last four.

The 13-fight event kicks off Sunday with three preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 10:30 a.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts air on Fox Sports 1 at noon. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 2 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
