I don't know if he could get past Bonjasky.

What I really want is for Aerts to make a comeback.

I don't think the tournament format helps Alistair, although people forget he trains with the top kickboxers in the world.

Alistair has always had incredible striking, and now that he's tanked up, he's gonna be a huge threat, and could possibly beat alot of people, but as someone already said, the tournament style doesn't suit him very well.

He'd do much better on a one fight basis.

But I do think a more motivated, well trained Hari could perhaps take him. Like the one we saw against Aerts.

Doubt he would make it past the Final 16. I don't see him beating a Hari who had trained and fought like he did in the tournament. If Overeem got paired with guys like Saki and Karaev who are small K-1 fighters he would win but getting past the big guys would prove difficult especially Remy.
