Win-Win for Duffee AFAIC. Either he beats Alistair and becomes a star; or he makes a tidy wage packet and earns respect for stepping up and taking on a monster like Overeem. The chances of him getting seriously hurt are slim, so I can see why he's decided to step in there. A win over Overeem would be huge for his career, it's not like he has his own hype train to preserve anymore. That came to a swift hault the second his head hit the canvas after being clobbered by Russow.

Agreed.

Though Duffee better make sure he has cash in hand before the fight, or he may not collect for a bit, if ever...

Duffee is more of a can than Rogers is now. I can't imagine what happens to Overeems reputation if he loses this fight in any method. Even if Duffee can l-n-p a decision it will be devastating.


Duffee has nothing to lose here. He's a confident guy, hopefully he doesn't come in this fight intimidated.




Is Duffee a tall HW? I can't remember any of his stats. I vaguely remember him being close to Carwins size.

His standing at 6ft3 according to Wikipedia. Carwin is 6ft2 and Overeem is 6ft5.

Overeem by whatever he wants. Knees or guilotine. Duffee has a great puncher's chance, but the Reem is just too good, too experienced.

I can see this been a bit like Overeem vs Ben Edwards in the K-1 last 16, except you have to wonder if Duffee could get back up after any one of those shots.

No Offence to Duffee I really like him as a fighter and think he is a great prospect, but I think he is mad to take on this fight, if I was him I would of been calling out Arlovski or Rogers for a SF event.

Well this is MMA so he'll get rocked and then knocked out. He can fight Rogers and Arlovski after this. Both fighters will be off losses!

This fight is the best thing Todd duffee ever did. This is what a real fighter wants. I'm not real clear on exactly what put him out of the ufc, I'm sure it wasn't one bad fight but, a good showing in this fight win or lose, could put him right back in or make him one of the few who don't need it.

WAR TODD!

Kick Overeem's ass so we can have a hundred "exposed" "K-1 sucks" "horsemeat food poisoning" threads


edit:
Quote:
"I think every opponent is risky. It's MMA, that's what it's about. It's a chance to fight in Japan and a chance to fight one of the best. I'm in the sport to test myself and not have some sort of padded record. I'm here to fight, that's why we do what we do. I want to see what I'm made of and Alistair is a great opponent to do that against."



Duffee has noticed the popular sentiment that taking the fight against the highly dangerous Overeem on short notice is a mistake, and he challenged that by wearing a t-shirt that proclaimed, "Doubt Me".

"I definitely wore it on purpose. I know everyone's got Alistair picked. I definitely think I deserve a little more respect than what I'm getting and I'm going to go out there and prove that. [I accepted the fight] the moment I got the offer. I didn't hear about it for some time. I heard about it maybe ten days ago."

Duffee's manager, Monte Cox, did not leap on the idea as his 25 year old charge did.

"My manager said no, but I think you just can't say no to this kind of opportunity. You've got to do things in your life to get where you want to be and who's got the right to tell you about it. That's how I feel. I actually asked my manager if he could get this fight for me. I heard that they were having trouble getting an opponent for him and everybody turned it down. I thought there might be a shot in hell that I could get it and at first he said no, we talked for about an hour and he finally went out there and did it. I have one of the best managers in the business. I understand his perspective on why I shouldn't be here but I know the reasons why I should be here."

I'm gonna make a 3am prediction: Duffee wins and in 2011 we see Duffee vs fedor at an M-1 event in Russia. (heard it here 1st)

Yeah, Dynamite isn't a second rate show. As for what ejected him from the UFC we will never really know. Though personally I don't think Overeem is a weak fighter, he isn't to be underestimated!
