The Underground News, Editor
 

In an interview with the Sherdog Radio Network’s “It’s Time!” show with Bruce Buffer, the colorful MMA personality gave his thoughts on the matchup and a variety of other topics, including his Fuel TV show “Punk Payback” and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos’ positive test for an anabolic steroid.

Rutten on telling Overeem’s camp which opponents could make for difficult matchups: “I always told them … make sure to avoid Junior dos Santos. I think him and Cain Velasquez, although with Cain, he cannot take a punch too great. But still, Cain is a monster and he should have simply shot in on Junior dos Santos, I think. I actually thought he was going to win that fight, but he didn’t. He got tagged, and that can happen to anybody. Anyway, I always said try to stay away as long as you can from Junior dos Santos. That right now could be a very big threat together, believe it or not, with Cheick Kongo. I think that would also be a great opponent for him.”

On how Overeem matches up with dos Santos: “I think Alistair, everything he does is one single shot because he knows he’s got that glass jaw as well. He’s been knocked out quite a few times in the past, even by Chuck Liddell as well. Every time when he punches, one hand is up. He throws single shots; he doesn’t throw combinations. You saw that when he fought [Fabricio] Werdum. Werdum was actually tagging him more than he did to Werdum. I think that Junior dos Santos, with his combinations, his reach, I think he’s going to tag him and he’s going to throw combos and I think that yeah, he’s going to take this fight.”

I like Bas but he wouldn't have said this if Overeem didn't have the falling out with GG.

Alistair said his chin got better at HW but got stopped in the first by Badr hari and im fairly certain JDS hits just as hard.

I agree with bas and thought so before this, but there will be lots of "sour grape" comments I'm sure. Phone Post

Everyone has a glass jaw against the top guys at heavyweight. There is no taking a solid shot on the chin from these guys and walking through it. If you think that Overeem keeping his hand up is a bad thing, you are a moron. Overeem being able to finish opponents while minimizing risk is a good thing, believe it or not.

WTF is that supposed to mean?

I'm a fan of Bas, but Chuck hit/hits harder than the HW's.
Strange thing to say.

Wow. Talk about two faced. Don't care for his legend status, he deserves to get called on his bullshit like everyone else.

And it's bullshit because he has clearly had an agenda against the Reem since he split with GG. Watch any Inside MMA before that, and you'll see Bas over his nuts.

In an old episode of the Reem, Bas had a completely different opinion about how he would do in the UFC

I wouldn't count a standing TKO as bad if he took a head kick from Badr Hari and wasn't unconscious

Also it's kind of hard to deny that this was a majorly douche thing to say being former training partners and after suing him the day before the Brock fight

Definitely a Bas fan, but he really needs to get over trash talking the Reem at every opportunity.. Even if he is right it still doesn't look good for him.

JDS hits hard but he couldn't even put Crocop away, a feat even Frank Mur did. Using MMath and looking at Overeem/Crocop and JDS/Crocop, Overeem was far more dominant.

Fedor couldn't put Cro Cop away either. 1 1=3. Phone Post

Not trying to continue this argument, but what the hell does Fedor have to do with this? We have Crocop as a measuring stick against JDS, Overeem was far more dominant(imo).

^ This

When Reem was still with Golden Glory, Bas was claiming was the #1 HW in the world. Now that he has left them, he is glass jawed bum.

Bas is two-faced.

Huh?

Chuck fought at LHW.

he landed big shots on lots of guys that didn't put them out(wand/vitor/rampage)

Was he a big puncher? yeah.

but how you can compare him to HW's is baffling.

Chuck is no Hendo in terms of power IMO.


The fuck? CHUCK IS NO HENDO IN TERMS OF POWER? LOL what the fuck is wrong with this forum nowadays!
