Overeem's arm looks ridiculous in that picture. With that being said, Don't expect a close fight. Alistair is going to crush the elite grappler early and visciously. I've had the honor to see Overeem train last month and the man is looking like more of a juggernaut than ever. After he wins this tournament, he NEEDS to fight the top competition in the UFC or else he's going to get bored.

The Reem will have his way with Werdum. I think it's funny most MMA rankings have Werdum a few spots ahead of him, and yet The Reem is a 5:1 favorite. O well. That all changes on Saturday.

I really want to see this fight because Overeem has looked really impressive but the competition he has faced has been ridiculously low level. This is his first real test in years. It is easy to look good against C level fighters like Thompson/Fujita/Rogers. If he dominates Werdum then I'm sold.

I am the only one thinking Werdum has this?

Werdum is by far the best fighter Overeem has fought in a long time. We haven't seen Overeem's gas tank yet and I doubt it is anything special after the first round with all that extra muscle mass.

I see Werdum surviving the first and then coming back to win it. Werdum has only ever been KOed by Dos Santos, Overeem has the ability to knock him out but it won't be easy.

Loving the odds, hopefully Overeems gas tank isn't too bad and he survives to lose the decision. Could make an absolute killing in Vbookie if that happens.

Werdum isn't getting a takedown until Overeem gases . His takedowns aren't that good and Overeem will easily overpower him. Werdum also isn't winning in the clinch so he can't wear him out like that. Overeem isn't gassing within 2 rounds beating on a guy standing he isn't a moron like carwin he is a real striker.

Overeem via prison **** unless Werdum hits a flying armbar in the first 2 minutes of the fight. The only real question going into this fight is whether or not Overeem can top the knockout JDS scored on Werdum from a theatrical standpoint.

Overeem fought 3 times at 1 night and didn't showed any signs of a bad gass tank.

This is wishful thinking you have here.


Overeem is much stronger, so much better on the feet and even a better Wrestler. All Werdum has is a bottom game!

I have a lot of respect for Werdum and his BJJ skills. I do not think he's taking Overeem seriously. He's still savoring that Fedor submission victory.

That being said, Overeem is not even close to the fighter he once was. I'm thinking mid-late round TKO or brutal KO via clinch for Ubereem

After this tourny, he should go to UFC and start dismantling the top 5 guys there.
