Yes, yes it is:

They should have stripped Overeem or left him out of the tournament. Having him compete for his own belt is silly and adds another layer of disrespect to the title no one seems to want.

Edit:
And I forgot to laugh at the sweetheart deal Barnett's getting here.

I give both of you 5:1 odds if you take that bet with me!

Deal?

well i doubt hes getting overeem to the ground in any fashion, even if overeem knocks him down he isnt going to follow him to the ground... but hey he could always outstrike him

Werdum doesn't have a chance.

I'm just not entirely sold on Alistair Overeem! That's what I'm basing my opinion on! You guys seemed really excited for him but keep in mind this isn't the first time this man looked dominant over a couple of cans and mid tier fighters! Don't get me wrong, I think the man has loads of potential but when ever he gets to the big players like Nogueira, Shogun or Arona the man crumbles.


But hey, I'll tell you what! If he beats Werdum then I'll become a believer! Until then I'll always be skeptical if he can win over guys like Werdum and Fedor!
