He is good, he's a great fighter but:
1- He isn't Fedor yet,
2- He has a weakness,

3- period
he didn't KO him, he knocked him down and then the ref scored a "knockdown" while Reem was still on his feet but seemingly defenseless, it's a legit TKO stoppage but it wasn't a Knockout

Yes its a knockdown, I know that, and he made it 3 times

3 times = TKO

Sorry for not saying TKO, I just wanted to explain the issue. Thanks for the note.

I like Reem but that argument is stupid.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.

Fedor on the other hand had beaten 3 top ten HW in the past two years and he gets all the ridicule in the world because he lost to Werdum and Silva.

Somebody please help me understand the logic behind this?
No one talks about Overeem until recently anyway, people say Fedor is the best P4P not just HW in some cases, it was how high people raised Fedor up to be, is when the smack talking about who he fought came
