Rogan on Manhoef and Overeem

Quote:
Melvin Manhoef is a ******* monster as well.
I tried years ago to talk Joe Silva into signing that guy, but I guess he was making a ton of loot in Japan.
He's the most exciting striker on the planet.
Quote:
I just watched the Badr Hari fight, and all I have to say is, Holy Shit.
He looked like he was 2 weight classes above Hari.
If Fedor continues to fight in Japan I would love to see him vs Alistair.
Who doesn't love Melvin?

Wow that would be good, Overeem/Fedor. But I see Fedor running through him, atleast I hope thats what happens.

Yeah, I would love to see Overeem in the Octagon, especially now that he has really grown into his frame. The guy is hulking now. Imagine Kongo vs Overeem!

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Someone mentioned Anderson vs Manhoef the other day and man would that be amazing! The UFC really should chase the both of these guys.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

I like Melvin but his sub defense is still complete and utter garbage. Want to put him in a K1 fight with Anderson Im all for it but in an MMA match Silva chokes his ass out.

Not saying I wouldnt like to see Melvin in the UFC but I think the hype ends the minute you put him against anyone who can evade his punches early on and get it to the ground.

But yeah, I think Rogan is the only guy in the UFC that you could give the mic during a ppv and has the balls to actually talk about guys like Aoki and Fedor.

Yea I remember he mentioned JZ Calvancanti in like 3 cards in a row and I was loving that lol.

Melvin does get exposed anytime he faces a guy with a ground game look at his fight with Mousasi.
