Overeem seems to be the top choice right now to receive the next shot at the title as Miocic will look to defend his belt later this year.
Overeem most recently dispatched Andrei Arlovksi with a second round knockout in their fight at the UFC Fight Night card in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
The win moved Overeem to 4-0 in his last four fights with his past two victories coming against a pair of former UFC champions in Arlovski and Junior dos Santos.
The UFC hasn’t made any decisions yet regarding the No. 1 contender at heavyweight with Overeem likely sitting at the top of the list while former champion Cain Velasquez will try to put his name in the hat when he faces Travis Browne at UFC 200 in July.
Miocic is going to take some down time following his win over Werdum with a wedding planned in a few weeks but it probably won’t take the UFC’s newest champion much longer before he has his first title defense booked.
