It appears as though Alistair Overeem will clash with a familiar face in May.

The UFC is currently targeting a heavyweight bout between Overeem and fellow JacksonWink teammate Andrei Arlovski for the main event of the May 8 Rotterdam, Netherlands show, MMAFighting.com has learned.

The Dutch-born Overeem (40-14, 1 NC), who signed a new contract with the UFC on Monday, has won his last three fights in a row. He most recently won via TKO over long-time rival Junior dos Santos in December.

Arlovski (25-11, 1 NC) had a six-fight winning streak snapped in January when he was knocked out by Stipe Miocic. The loss marked his first since March 2013.
