I think if he shocks me one more time it will just be boring

I'd like to see Bigfoot beat up a few more guys before going against the champ again. He's a super nice guy. Good to see him get what he's worked hard for.

The funniest part of all this is when a punching exchange finally happened, Overeem -- who everyone says is the best HW striker in MMA and was going to KO Bigfoot cold -- got blasted.

Rumor has it he drew his fighting spirit/inspiration by reading the UG in the weeks leading up to the fight where nearly everyone said Overeem would knock him out cold in the first round. ;-)

The only reason he won the first two without trouble, was because he took Antonio down as fast as he could. Flopped on him, and pinned him down. That's his whole modus operandi.

Overeem won both rounds without being troubled at all, it was always going to be a risk though leaving his hands by his side and being cocky, had he not done this I've no doubt he would've won the fight and there wouldn't be 100 threads on here saying Overeem was always shit....How dare you question my intelligence....I have 10 GCSE's

I wasn't shocked that Bigfoot won at all. The way he won was a little surprising but I feel that the better MMA fighter won.I've always known that Overeem was overrated.

"Lets not get carried away here, Silva couldn't touch Overeem for 10 minutes"So then, let's just pretend that Silva couldn't touch him because Overeem was embarrassing him with his superior striking. The reality is that Overeem did what he always does against half-decent strikers in MMA. He flopped on him and humped his leg for 10 minutes. The only time they had a significant striking exchange, Overeem did what he always does, he got knocked out.
