No love for Alistair Overeem ??

One of my favorite fighters to watch in the pride era, Alistair is always reliable to push the action with great striking and decent sub game. You can always count on Alistair to absolutely crush cans but he sure as hell hasnt done very well against top tier fighters BUT he has looked pretty damn good in his last few fights and is absolutely massive looking as a heavyweight.

He looked great against CroCop until he smashed his balls into his stomach but for a heavyweight his speed and kickboxing skills are easily among the best. If Alistair can come into his own as a heavyweight Id say he will at least put on a damn good fight against Fedor since Alistair is pretty much strikeforces only hope for a decent match against the last emperor.

Overeem is a baller. Maybe more so to me because I recognize with his striking so much.

He's a good fighter, and he's coming into his own now. CroCop while past his prime is still a very decent fighter, and he made him look like a bitch. Not saying he'll ever beat fedor or be a ufc champ, but I expect him to kick the shit out of a lot of dudes.

edit: oh and dude this is the UFC section, this belongs in the mma discussion or strikeforce :P

I got a lotta love for Overeem! Amazing kickboxer and all round good fighter. Not sure how well he'd do against the UFC's top guys though... not sure this topic is in the right place either. But yeah,Overeem's great! much love

Anyone, who does, what Alistair did to Badr Hari, is in the 'like' list in my book.
Not to mention he's an exciting fighter with a great attitude

Moving this to the Strikeforce forum, continue the discussion there.

he's one of my favorite fighters. Since adding weight and competing in the HW division, he's been looking great.

Beside the fact that he seem to be a roid monkey i like his style and think he could destroy most of the ufc HW roster .

I just havent seen enough from him at heavyweight to have a lot of faith in him just yet. Regardless of how the crocop fight was going, he didnt win. The last heavyweight he fought that was close to the top ten was Sergei and he got knocked out. I also think that badr hari, being the giant dick/douche that he is, didnt take there fight seriously at all and paid for it. If they fight again, badr will take his lunch money. He wasnt even top tweenty as a lhw. If alistair can actually kick the roids long enough to pass a drug screen to fight in the states and beat a top ten heavyweight, then i will be a fan. Until then, im pretty skeptical about this guy.
