Silva shocks everyone, knocks out Overeem in 3rd

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Unfortunately, “The Reem” was as patient as could be in the first round and while his accuracy was a sight to behold, he didn’t offer a lot of offense and very little damage was done.

His dominance continued into the second, this time in the form of a big takedown after landing a strike or two. Things were slow rolling from there, but not so slow that referee Herb Dean forced a stand up. Overeem was doing just enough to maintain his dominant position while Silva floundered underneath him, unable to establish any kind of meaningful offense.

The open of the third is where Overeem’s cockiness got the best of him. Silva rushed him with a strong sense of urgency and the two butted heads when they both went low to duck under each other. That started a flurry of activity from “Bigfoot,” who blitzed the Dutchman with an overload of punches with disgusting power.
