And it looks like Overeem is the first unified champion between Dream and Strikeforce. Just another feather in his cap I guess. Is there any other fighter that has done this much?

These two belts are separate. He defended his SF title last year, won the Dream one and won the K1 GP. No other man has accomplished this.

Either way this should make him one of the top two seeds in the tournament if it happens. Because even though all these guys have done something Overeem is the only one to do something recently. Overall I think all of them should be seeded!

Yeah, I'm with you there. The Overeem now is not the same Overeem that Werdum beat, Fedor is not the fighter he used to be, Barnett is not the fighter he used to be either, Bigfoot almost got beat by a lightheavyweight replacement, Arlovski's chin is glass, Rogers is all stand-up and nothing more, and Lashley is a wrestler. Overeem out of those eight is on a role and is the most likely to win out of the eight!

Fedor and Barnett may possess the biggest threat to him, and quite possibly Werdum. I only see Fedor putting up a competent fight though.

Yeah, but Overeem now outweighs Fedor by almost thirty pounds. Werdum is closer to that weight but is still outweighed by almost twenty pounds. Barenett's only advantage would be his wrestling if he actually used that to his advantage!

Outweighing Fedor means nothing almost every opponent has about 20 - 30 pounds on Fedor,Overeem is going get about 3 fists in his face before Getting one off .

I don't know about Barnett, I think Overeem would handle him pretty easy. Overeem, Werdum and Fedor are my top favorites to win this.


Wil be rooting for Fedor and Kharitonov.
