Overreem

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Cain will be a tough fight for reem. Dos would beat reem I believe also!

    Facing Gary Goodridge and Tony Sylvester is not in the same league as facing JDS or Cain. Overeem couldn't take a punch at LHW; how will he manage to do so at HW?

    Different gloves and different rules. He also has never faced Schilt.

    Agreed 100% that Cain and JDS are tougher opponents than his prior opponents. It is pretty interesting that his last 10 wins (with the exception of Werdum) were all in the first round. Makes me wonder if he would still be able to stand at 5 rounds with Cain or JDS.

    He's been finished 6 times by strikes in his MMA career and most of those were while he was a LHW and 6oz gloves. He's now fighting at HW with 4 oz gloves. Do you really think that his chin is going to get better with age against larger opponents wearing smaller gloves?

    I wasn't aware that you could improve a chin.

    I've never argued the fact that Overeem's standup hasn't improved, but his problems at LHW will be there at HW as well, which are his chin and cardio.

  16. Hmmm wonder what happened?

  17. He kept his hand down at his waist. He looked solid until then. A little cocky and got caught

  18. Rodja, you proved your point.....

  20. You were correct on the entire fight. I don't uderstnd why he fought so cocky though??

    Trying to prove a point that he could walk through anybody, but anyone has a punchers chance. But damn the shot reem was hitting on ground sounded brutal! Bet he's keep his hands up now!

  22. I bet the black zillions start working his defense. He is a big dude but his chin is so suspect I think Cain would crack that glass within 1 round

  23. First i'm a Caín fan and really i was like damnn here comes overeem his going to walk over bigfoot and Now were in trouble !!! But then i watched saturday fight and im truly relaxed this guy has no bussines with Caín and with that cocky attitude much less he's no match for the Brown pride Now Dana W. Has a problem whos next? Who deserves it ?

  24. Next could be Cormier or Barnet.


    How about the newly announced fight at 145 on August 3..... Aldo vs Pettis

    It won't be Cormier; he and Cain won't fight each other and Barnett's future is stil undecided. Werdum, if he beats Nog, is probably next.

  26. That's true. I forgot they are partners and friends. Is it true Cormier is thinking of going to 205?

    He's been calling out Jones for awhile now. He's only about 225 or so and could easily make 205.

    Cormier at 205? Man I got my doubts,, hes a mesomorph with wide hips and heavy bone structure,, he would lose alot of his natural power at 205..and know way Reem goes down that low!! He loves being huge now,, he was 200 in K1 for years..then geared up and started knocking everyone out..

    Cormier is far from lean at 225 and could make 205 without much water depletion and Overeem fought at 205 in Pride, not K1.

    True,, I have vid of early K1 matches where Overeem was 205..you will never see Cormier at 205.

    Yeah...except for the fact that he's stated multiple times he wants to fight Jones for his title.
