This week on UFC Central, hosted by "Showdown" Joe Ferraro. Just one week after the Ultimate Fighting Championship began promoting the all heavyweight main card for UFC 146 in Las Vegas, the main event between champion Junior Dos Santos and number one contender Alistair Overeem is now in jeopardy after Overeem failed a random pre-fight drug test. So with "The Demolition Manís" future in question, find out how Dana White reacted, if Overeemís days in the UFC are done, and who could be taking his place against Dos Santos. We go "Inside the Octagon" for the rest of the major headlines from the past week, including the latest on Georges St-Pierreís rehab, Bellator 64 in Windsor, and the announcement that Canadian veteran John Alessio will be returning to the UFC. We hear from both Alessio and his opponent, fellow Canadian Mark Bocek on what to expect at UFC 145. As the UFC gets set for their debut in Sweden, we preview the entire fight card from top to bottom, including the main event where rising light heavyweight prospect Alexander Gustafsson puts his four fight win streak on the line against former contender Thiago Silva. Will Gustafsson continue his winning ways in front of the hometown crowd, or will Silva prove heís still one of the divisionís top fighters? And we sit down middleweight Brian Stann who takes on Alessio Sakara in the co-main event. The former marine discusses bouncing back from a tough loss, his evolution in the sport, and how he is still a few years away from reaching his prime Plus, in our latest "Getting to Know" Stann reveals what heís most afraid of, the funniest things thatís happened to him while training, the food he craves most , his favourite sports team, and much more. Donít forget that you can catch UFC Live: Gustafsson vs Silva live this Saturday on Sportsnet One, with replays later that evening on all regional channels.
