That fat slob with no defense and no chin made it to the top 16?

I am the foremost authority on my opinion.

No Chin??

I think there are VERY few guys that would have been able to make it back to their feet after that 2nd knockdown, let alone remain concious.

Overeem destroys JDS no doubt...I really like JDS too. But Overeem does just about everything better than him.

Saying someone has potential doesn't equate to them actually having any. Maybe you should tell me what you see in him instead of just saying he's young. Heart and chin wont cut it in K-1 and his striking is nothing to be impressed with.

Overeem made it to the round of sixteen in K-1?

Not really, he was gifted an invite. But it's not like they have anyone else to put in there. K-1 is starting to run low on competitors with all the legends retiring.

I'm guessing they didn't build enough up and comers with their legends retiring?

That and their 2 best figthers, Hari and Bonjasky, aren't even competing this year. They've been on a decline for awhile now though. It's always been the same people fighting in the GP for years.
