Cain wouldn't last 3 minutes standing with Overeem.

Maybe he really means Cain and JDS are better kickboxers than Ben Edwards.

You said Edwards has a ton of potential, I said potential isn't skill. I was talking about Edwards

This. After watching that video, Edwards looks about as good as Carwin standing except with kicks. Kicks that didn't have much power at that. IMO both Cain and JDS are better strikers. Not saying they're better than Overeem, but they're better than that dude for sure.

That commentator was so annoying. This just proves, that Alistair Overeem is a monster, and would be a contender in the UFC.

Ahh right, it was just you went on to compare cain and jds skills and potential to overeems. I wasnt sure.

I think with overeems skillset right now he would smash almost the entire HW division. Time will only tell....

Ben Edwards aint no bum either. Hes a solid kick boxer with a tonne of potential.
Don't hold your breath. Ben Edwards is no prospect. This is as far as he'll ever get in his K-1 career.

I beg to differ. Hes young, hes got a hell of a heart, some solid skills and real heavy hands.

He comes on hard for the 1st round but after that he's not much of a threat. If you take him into deep water you're probably going to win. His defense is severely lacking as well. He relies on pressure and heavy hands to get the KO early but you obviously can't do that against better competition as Overeem just displayed.
