Big Nog: Overeem not big enough to beat JDS

by Guilherme Cruz | source:

Junior Dos Santos will defend his title against Alistair Overeem in the middle of the year. What are your thoughts about that?

Cigano wins via knockout, I’m sure of that. He’s a lot faster, knows how to move, he won’t get that knee, and he’s much more complete and has much more stamina, and that’ll make a great difference. Overeem has never defeated someone as big as Cigano.

How do you see Overeem’s evolution since Pride, where he fought names like Shogun, Arona and your brother, Rogerio?

Alistair Overeem is a lot bigger, stronger, more explosive, but not big enough to beat Junior Dos Santos.

If they're smart, they'll show it on Fox. Ride the wave of the Brock beatdown.

It will be a good fight. For the 450K watching. Had it been Brock versus JDS it'd be 1 million or close. Unless they stack the card, it won't do big numbers. Both fighters are big. Neither are big stars.

It's obviously no surprise Nog picks JDS over Overeem but I still think he is right. JDS (I don't think) will not have to much problems Overeem.

Big Nog hasn't seen the 2012 model, yet.

JDS is a better fighter in most every way, i don't remember his ground game. compare his fights to the Reems fights and you can see the Reems weakness matches up to JDS strengths quite well.

I would say JDS has hands that are at least equal to or better than Hunt at this point (probably better than Hunt has been for the past 5-6 years). He can also take a punch, but we haven't had to see him come back from a beating in any of his fits. He is a big and strong guy, is fast and athletic and also seems to have great takedown defense as well. Sounds like a decent combination of those guys already...

Questioning Nog on a JDS fight is like asking Richard Dawkins if he is an atheist.Here is a tip Interviewers, ask an unbiased source gives so much more credibility to the interview. Should be asking Nog about his arm, when he plans on fighting again, and say the words Frank Mir and watch his facial expressions.
