Well that might be true. I guess I just haven't seen enough of Overeem fighting recently. Dream, K-1 and Strikeforce aren't easy to access for those who have no cable.

I've watched that fight countless times and that knee Bigfoot mentioned barely touched Overeem. After the fight i thought Overeem got hit a lot but when you re-watch it you can see things more clearly.

Yeah, sometimes when you watch something it looks different the first time then when you watch it the second time. Like when I saw the Fedor versus Arlovski fight I thought Arlovski got knocked out when he fell on his face. Then you watch it in slow motion you can see Fedor connecting.

Exactly. He blocked so many lazy punches that if he just looked to eat one to throw a left hook and set up a KO then he could have finished the fight. Werdum threw a lot of strikes and had Overeem backing up which made it look as if Werdum was connecting.

Yeah, that is a common optical illusion. Fighters who are trying to block look like they are hurt and as a result the fight looks like it's going in the other fighters direction. But that wasn' the case with Overeem versus Werdum.

I've seen the fight only once and yeah, it looked to me that Werdum connected alot. Ill watch it again. I thought it was a bit odd that a BJJ dude was connecting so many times on a K-1 fighter!

Werdum has held his own against strikers in the past, and has decent stand up. Haven't seen the fight myself, but I wouldn't be surprised if Overeem didn't outright own him in the stand up, though on the same token I would be surprised if Werdum managed to out strike Overeem.

Yeah, he held his own against Aleksander Emelianenko and beat him. There are others that he's fought that I can't remember off hand. But let's remember that he didn't keep the fight standing.

Bigfoot will get knocked out in the first or second.

Let's not forget that bigfoot was soundly beaten and outclassed by Werdum over the course of three rounds.

No mercy summed it up earlier. Bigfoots tactic will be to smother Overeem against the cage, try to wear him out and get the take down. I see him getting shrugged off with relative ease though and just tossed aside in the clinch.

Saying that though, after the Werdum fight, Bigfoot could have it in his head that because it looked like Werdum was having success on the feet (which he really wasn't) he may think that he can actually stand with Reem too. If he does that, he's entering a world of pain.

Werdum didn't fare so well against Fedor in the stand up. Fedor is just so fast and fearless, and most important he is accurate. I see the Overeem vs. Silva fight much like Cro Cop's K.O. wins over Alexander Emelianenko and Igor Vovchanchyn. Unless Silva manages to get Overeem down, then he could very well do the same to Overeem as he did to Fedor. Although Overeem may be harder to hold down than Fedor. Fedor is a small heavyweight who can take advantage of being underneath a guy who is not very skilled in BJJ, but Silva is very skilled. If Overeem can not power his way out of Silva's guard or use some skill to escape then he will be T.K.O'd or lose a decision.
