Overreem has not fought anyone that is as well rounded as Antonio Silva. We will have to see! This is not K-1.

This is a showcase fight and not a competitive matchup. Easter Island Head is a lamb being led to slaughter

I still think Overeem loses his legs from underneath him when he takes a shot at this level at HW. He still hasnt been hit.

Yup. I think the only chance Bigfoot has is to get on top and go for GnP & submissions. This fight is (or should be) tailor-made for Overeem.

Why is Overeem, who has 19 submission wins and has been training in submissions since sometime prior to 1999 (his first pro MMA win, by submission) going to be in "big trouble" if this hits the mat? Big Foot has a BB in both BJJ and Judo, but surely Reem is not considered a slouch or pushover on the ground?

Further, how can anyone possibly be dismissive of winning the K-1 Grand Prix when assessing an MMA fighters skills? Reem was facing the best HW strikers in the world. Taking shots, and not only holding his own, but whooping some serious ass.

I would say Werdum was more well rounded and better than Bigfoot.

Agree. People act like if it hits the mat, Reem scratches his head in confusion and taps.

If Silva does win, who is next for Cain? Cormier with a win over Mir? Phone Post

But Cain never got hit by Bigfoot? Phone Post

Dude, that one leg kick he threw was devastating...

Bigfoot his past his prime, as crazy as that sounds.

Everyone is different, and this guy's best is past, and it's unfortunate, because a few years ago he would've been on top or around the UFC HW division. Maybe it's the pituitary glands....I don't know.

Overeem will handle him. Overeem will likely destroy Cain.

But JDS is a bad matchup for Overeem. He's like a big Fedor, as far as casting punches, and is accurate enough to sneak in those punches, And Overeem has never had an astonishingly tough chin.
