He got knocked out in the first minute of the 3rd round. He had time to rest when he was never being layed on or pushed hard.  He was cocky, and got ktfo. He can't change that, only try to show he is still a top guy by show and proving.

Spartan 117 Master Chief - Overeem did not lose because of being cocky. He lost because he gassed out.

right, keeping his hands down the entire fight had nothing to do with it

No homo, but I love valentijn to death. He is the best heavyweight with legit world class skills with the weakest chin there ever was. People talk about Alistairs chin, he is no where close to the level of his brother.

Flame away, but Brock.

Dude was fast, strong and had great wrestling, he was the champ so IMO thats world class, but could'nt take a punch at all.

Close, biy not good enough. Brocl survived carwin. Valentijn would have crumnled within the first minute, but he is up there.

NO...Reem lost because he got rocked by a ginormous uppercut and ate 5 more punches immediately after. But I guess you could say he was cocky. You'd think training high level muay thai from Holland you'd instinctively have your hands up at all times.
