Werdum didn't fare so well against Fedor in the stand up. Fedor is just so fast and fearless, and most important he is accurate. I see the Overeem vs. Silva fight much like Cro Cop's K.O. wins over Alexander Emelianenko and Igor Vovchanchyn. Unless Silva manages to get Overeem down, then he could very well do the same to Overeem as he did to Fedor. Although Overeem may be harder to hold down than Fedor. Fedor is a small heavyweight who can take advantage of being underneath a guy who is not very skilled in BJJ, but Silva is very skilled. If Overeem can not power his way out of Silva's guard or use some skill to escape then he will be T.K.O'd or lose a decision.
