Yeah, so pretty much proved that any decent fighter that can get Overeem out of rhythm and not lose the fight by pulling guard and butt scooting will beat Overeem...
His striking was very slow and telegraphed and his gas tank was weak. He is still dangerous to anyone he fights because he has power in his punches but a well rounded fighter will beat him 9 times out of 10. Fortunately for Overeem there are only 2 or 3 well rounded true HW fighters...
Overeem is pretty much the SF equivalent to Carwin... Strong and has power in his strikes but too predictable.
