Actually, the reffing made it very favored for Overeem.
I am pretty sure you cant take your opponent down, and Overeem did it at least 3-4 times during the fight, with some trips and once where he blatantly just threw Remy down.
No warning, no penalty, Overeem was getting away with it.
I gotta say i dont a crap about the result, because the fight sucked.
I dont watch a lot of K-1, but i am pretty damn sure K-1 fighters should be in better shape than what Remy was showing.. Remy was either gassed or stunned at how big Overeem was, because that was ridiculous...
Overeem was coming forward, just going into that dirty boxing mode, and Remy, who basically made his career on kicking the crap out of people, lets Overeem, who is so much more bigger and stronger than him, get in close to throw punches?
As for Overeem, putting on some massive weight(steroids?) certainly did not help his already problematic cardio. After 2 minutes, he was breathing hard..
At least, he was dominating, until he got caught with that one punch.. he still has a glass chin..
Overeem really needs to work on his cardio or learn to pace himself, because if he wants to keep his career in MMA, he has no choice to join top promotions for HWs like Affliction or UFC, and they wont hire him if he cant fight more than 5 minutes..
This is exactly why i hate/love Overeem : He is so good, but yet he cant finish a winning fight.. on almost all his losses(MMA), he was winning the fight until he either gassed(Shogun 1, Rogerio, Werdum,sergei) or got caught with 1 punch(Liddell,Shogun, Arona)
Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
