Heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Frank Mir have been added to an already stacked UFC 167 card.

The fight, which was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, will take place in Las Vegas on Nov. 16 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on a night headlined by the welterweight title bout between Georges St-Pierre and challenger Johny Hendricks.

The card also feature a light heavyweight fight between Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans, which was announced on Wednesday.

Overeem has lost two fights in a row since a victory over Brock Lesnar in Dec. 2011, the latest coming against Travis Browne at UFC Fight Night 27 on Aug. 17.

Mir, fresh off a TKO loss to Josh Barnett at UFC 164, is in the midst of a three fight skid, the longest of his career.
