LOL @ "entering the arena he acted like he invented the fighting sport."

http://www.fightsite.hr/ufc/cro-cop-overeem-was-too-arrogant-and-now-hes-been-put-in-his-place
"I wasn't surprised by Silva's victory at all and I had believed he would win. I don't want to come off as a smart-ass or say I knew it all along, so I'll explain why I'd believed so. First, Silva is a big tough guy with a huge heart who had demolished Fedor and he needs no better reference than that, and Alistair hugely underestimated him and belittled him with his arrogant statements, so this mobilized Silva in the best possible way. Second, Silva is a natural heavyweight, and Alistair - for the first time since way back in 2007, when he began to gain huge weight – fought without the drugs he had used constantly for years, including testosterone and all the other shit that goes with it."

"Watching the weigh-in, I saw that his muscles mass was nowhere near his usual, he had the weight, but he wasn't nearly as carved out and defined, since he couldn't take anything because he was watched by the Athletic Commission. This also reflects on the psyche of a man who's been using stuff to increase his strength, endurance, pain tolerance and aggressiveness for years, and now there was none of that. Alistair is an excellent fighter, but he still owes that excellence to something that's dirty and unpermitted, and, in the end, very dangerous to health."

"I don’t think he was concerned by that, he wanted success at any cost. And the third thing is, Alistair had behaved so arrogantly that someone needed to put him back in his place. His belittling of Silva was repulsive, saying that after beating up Silva he'd go for the belt, and at the weigh-in and entering the arena he acted like he invented the fighting sport, and he's been behaving with so much arrogance lately that I'm glad Silva put him back in his place and taught him a lesson! Congratulations Silva, from the heart!"

I like Overeem as a fighter, always fun to watch but I have met him in the past and he is a pretty condescending guy and his arrogance lately as gotten a little out of hand.  Good to be confident in yourself but he had gone beyond that.

Well said, I think all the over the top entrance stuff was just his way of trying to convince himself that he is the super star badass.

As cro cop said, it would be mentally challenging entering a fight clean for the first time in a long time.

Doubts had to of been in his had at some point during camp or in the fight lead up. Phone Post

Yup. Even during the fight Overeem behaved like a punk. I knew it was a matter of time before Silva caught him. Overeem still has that glass chin.
