Possible matchup between Bonjasky and Overeem

From this it seems like it's up to Remy whether or not they fight.

No way I see Alistair beating Remy.

Bonjasky's defence is wayyyyyy too good for Overeem to hurt him..

Hari never had great defence, he's just a nutter. I was shocked when Overeem beat Hari, but I'd be 100 times as shocked if Overeem beat Remy.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Yeah, really any heavy hitting HW with decent stand up has a chance to beat Badr, considering hes wild as shit and has a suspect chin at times.

Remy is going to give Alistair fits.

Why shouldnt he be able to beat remy? He looked better against hari than bonjanski.

Remy is really good against guys that are big punchers and lack good kicks because of his high guard. He has some trouble with guys like Hari, Aerts, even Cro Cop because they can mix up there strikes and get him to lower his guard. Alistair (imo) lacks the kicks to be able to do this. And when guys come in just boxing Remy can hurt them with kicks to the body and legs.

Hari was a perfect matchup for Alistair because as previously mentioned, he gets wild, his defense sucks at times, and he has a suspect chin. I thought Hari would win that fight but posted that because Alistair was going to land shots he had a shot.

But interesting thing about this is, Remy's first fight was against Valentijn and Remy stopped him.

Alistair is going to have a long night dealing with Remy's legs and fantastic guard. But if he can get in close, he should work alot of body shots and uppercuts (easier said than done), but to his credit, Alistair is a very quick learner these days.

I see Remy frustrating, and slowing Alistair down with leg kicks, and really taking the wind out of his sails with body kick after body kick. But he has to keep his hands up while going for any flying attack.

Yeah he will need a similar gameplan to what Jerome used in 06.

I'm picking Remy because the guy is from what I can tell the Benard Hopkins of K-1.

However Overeem seems to just get better and better everytime we see him along with bigger and bigger. So he has a shot.
