Lets hope Randy is right, lets hope Werdum can get the Win here and kill this GP dead after just the first rounds, does not fill me with confidence since this is only the 3rd time I have watched a Couture prediction and he has been wrong every time.

I saw him call Hamill to beat Rampage = WRONG
I saw him call Maynard to beat Edgar = WRONG (but forgiven since who could predict the draw)

Lets hope he can break his fail spree here tho, since Werdum getting the W over the Reem here would be the daddy of all predictions and the worse nightmare for the Strikeforce and the GP, would serve them right for selling out.

Agreed I see Werdum taking this fight via fighting better competition and being more in shape/well rounded.


The new Overeem is in like slow motion, even for a heavyweight, and I see Werdum being noticeably faster and with better cardio.

I'm leaning towards this as well, I don't see Werdum taking this one.

2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

I cringe when Attencio gives his prediction at the end, why does he think anyone wants to hear what he thinks? Seems strange to interview a famous fighter but then at the end say oh well my prediction is...

Aside from that, I think Randy might be right. Werdum is a vet and a solid fighter, he may well finish Overeem in the 3rd. Overeem will get tired and slow if he can't finish it early, especially if Werdum forces the clinch and turns this into a really physical fight.

Predictable that he picked Werdum. He always goes with the superior ground fighter I have noticed.

Nope. He picked Tim Sylvia to defeat Minotauro.

This is way pre-fight so check the time of this post ^

But man you gotta stop that senseless hate. The fight will probably happen in an hour so it close enough to say this: overeem is going to rag doll and **** werdum. This is not a fight its a brutal one sided ownage. Werdum is ving rhymes in pulp fiction when hes got that rubber ball in his mouth. Its OV.

What is blowing my mind is you and toxic giving it to werdum?

Imagine werdum comes out and stops overeem in the 1st xD I'm going to eat so much crow lol... i think not but
