There's a lot of good points in this thread. I've re-watched the fight a few times after the live event... to get a better perspective and take the 'in the moment emotion out of it'.
This fight had a very similar outcome to the Leitas Silva fight. I said it before, Werdum is excellent on the ground, but I still think after the Fedor sub he's riding on this "i'm untouchable aura" on the ground.
The huge curve ball was Werdum flopping down not trying to trade with Overeem. His shots were heavily telegraphed as well.
I can't blame Overeem for this. It\s much, much harder to finish someone who is only on defense, not trying to win a fight.
