Hunt would be the funnest fight of the three. Overeem should take Nelson out or at least to a decision. Nelson won't be able to take em down. But he does have that fast pitch right.

Wonder when Overeem is fighting again...

Training with Badr is always good.
I doubt he would KO Nelson. Say what you want about Roy's technical abilities...but he finds that KO shot just like Hendo does. I would pick Nelson all day vs. the chinny Overeem. In 3 rounds I would have to believe Roy finds Overeem's chin.

Same with Hunt, but Reem can actually take him down and sub/control him. Where as it would be harder for him to do that vs. Roy. But standing, Hunt out lasts Overeem all day.

JDS/Overeem I see JDS using movement and speed to win.

I would pick against Overeem in each fight and feel confident. If he wanted to play the grapple game with Hunt he probably could though. Sort of sad when Overeem just a year ago was touted as the best HW striker.
