I really dislike Overeem and thought he'd get murdered but damn, he impressed the hell out of me today. I'll do my rankings in the rankings thread soon but he might be top 5 TBH. Although I think there's still question marks over his heart IMO he's been really good since going to HW.

Talent wise IMO right now he is.

Nogueira looked horrible. Arlovski's ground game is crap, Barnett has good hands all around I think Overeem is better, Mir still hasn't proven that he is a great striker or really great anywhere although it was a great performance, Lesnar is too raw, Couture has no power or submission skills, Gonzaga has bad hands, Werdum has average stand up, Cain is too raw.

So yea talent wise he is probably #2 he needs to put it all together though and stop choking.

Not only is he amazingly skilled but at 6'5 he's a big HW and he keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I hope so the guy physically is a beast at about 6'5 240.

Then add in world class striking and a submission game good enough that he can submit good fighters he is so dangerous.

I know you love Brock and he physically is amazing but if you were going to design a HW I would say Overeem is more a the prototype then Brock.

for sure he is....actually overeem weighed in at 254lbs for the badr fight...which is crazy big...

brock has a better physique for a wrestler, but overeem has better physique for bjj and striking...so yeh, overeem is officially the most physically imposing HW there is

Yea I'm starting to think outside of Barnett and Fedor not many HW's in MMA would beat Overeem.

I mean Nogueira, Werdum, Mir, and Gonzaga would have a hell of a time standing with Overeem.

Brock, Arlovski and Sylvia would have trouble on the ground.

And he is more well rounded then Couture or Sergei IMO.

Overeem might be on his way to taking over the HW division.

Dude is 28 and doesn't turn 29 till may and He keeps improving and getting bigger look at the guys arms against Hari.
