I've heard Alistair say that if Dana wants him he'll have to pay up. Like I said he'll end up in the UFC, but I thought that about Fedor as well. This just seems like something that isn't getting done overnight.
But Overeem is smarter than Emelianenko businesswise I guess, so it's more probable to see Overeem in the UFC soon than it was with Emelianenko. And probably it was also not the dumbest move to leave the tournament. Overeem had nothing really to win there. Strikeforce is going to fold sooner or later. With his "not as impressive win as thought before" win over Werdum it was smarter step out of the tournament, keeping his market value which wouldn't have gone up significantly with a win over Silva, because he is champ already, but would have dropped considerably with a loss. Winning the tournament would have put him probably in the best spot for negotiations with the UFC, but with still two strong opponents ahead that would also be a risky bet. So leaving now is much safer for his business and with his market value he is still in a good position for negotiations.
Why couldn't Brock do exactly the same thing as Bigfoot did?
Lesnar is without doubt a better wrestler than Silva and probably the stronger athlete, so I would definitely see his chances to outmuscle Emelianenko. But Silva is a BJJ black belt and more important isn't afraid of taking a punch to the face. He just ate Emelianenko's shots (which have dropped many before) without any noteworthy reaction, but I guess most of us remember Lesnar's reaction to Carwin's and Velasquez' punches.
is that why mark hunt,brett rogers and silva have put him on his arse? lets be real here, you love fedor and you hate brock which is why you cant admit that brock just gorilla smash fedor into a pulp like bigfoot did, brock is way better than bigfoot in everything but stand up but brock doesnt have to stand with fedor and would take him down straight away
No, Lesnar is not better than Silva in everything but stand up. Lesner is the better Wrestler, which gives him an advantage in the take down department in particular. And he is possibly the stronger athlete, but Silva is a BJJ black belt and his submission game is probably not even in sight for Lesnar. Silva's striking is better and most important, Lesnar crumbles when he gets hit hard in the face.
So Lesnar is without doubt a beast when he can overpower his opponent, but hasn't the mentality to face real adversary.
