Overeem: Out of gas?

I like allistair a lot and have seen all of his fights. He is a great kickboxer but he doesn't utilize his skills where he needs to. When I see an opening for a 1,2 lowkick combination he will lowkick without setting it up with a punch and in return gets rocked by a straight, hook, overhand, etc. He is a big strong athletic dude but it seems like one fight he knows it all and the other times he just forgets. I hate to see that happen to the better fighters.

The gassing thing is simple. He is a sprinter. I have the same problem. We are good at finishing a fight early but when it takes to long to we are pretty much done for. You can see that in almost all his fights.

Overeem was very unimpressive in that fight and I would've been mad about it if it wsn't for the fact he lost to Sergei. Overeem stand up didn't look as good as usual and he defiantly needs to get back to the fighter he used to be who IMO was a top 10 LHW and a Top 15 HW. BTW I think if he dropped back down to LHW and fought Cyborg I might just pee myself.
