I won the fight but I was not satisfied," Overeem said. "I didn't get a KO. I worked hard, and when i look at the fight, I did dominate him. I stuck to the game plan but you have to give credit to Fabricio -- he was prepared. He was not going to get suckered into my game, which is the stand up, and he got me out of my game. His takedowns were not successful, but I think he trained hard for this fight, he really wanted to win. I felt his power and he was there to win."

According to Overeem, the strikes Werdum landed were just a minor annoyance."I'm not impressed with his striking," Overeem said. "He does not hit hard. He was using his strikes to set up his takedowns, but there was no damage. I was annoyed. ... When you look at a fight, who's more dominant? You can see who's more dominant."
