Zuffa Statement on Mir vs. Overeem

Zuffa, LLC, owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship®, released the following statement regarding Frank Mir's upcoming bout against Alistair Overeem.
UFC officials announced today that the heavyweight showdown between Frank Mir and Alistair Overeem has been rescheduled to UFC 169 on February 1, 2014. 

The move was determined in conjunction with the Nevada State Athletic Commission representatives to provide more time following Frank Mir’s recent August 31st competition. 

While there was no indication whatsoever that Mir wouldn’t be fully, medically cleared in time to compete on November 16th, UFC officials and Nevada Commission representatives believed that a short postponement would allow both athletes more time to train for the bout.
