I'm fairly sure Overeem is still located in the Netherlands full time and when he books a fight has his camp at the Blackzilians.

Also, I'm guessing you don't actually watch American football (Try to catch some this season, it's awesome. Especially if you Tivo it and watch the next day so you can fast forward through all the inaction.) Cardio isn't really a strong point for these guys. It typically has short, highly intense bursts of activity, followed by lots of standing around. And when someone actually sprints any serious distance, they often get switched out and given oxygen.

It's just not the sport you'd look to for cardio training. Strength, explosiveness, agility, sure. Not cardio.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Seriously. 300+ lb men, going balls to the wall EVERY play takes cardio. Yes, they do get little rest periods between plays, but like i said, they are 300+ lb men. And if you honestly think they don't run EVERY practice, along with doing resistance training, you are insane. Especially if you go look at these freaks that weigh 320 lbs and are running 4.5s and 4.4s. Come on dude..

You would know if you actually played.

It's ironic that you're name is sports nerd yet you know absolutely jack shit (obviously) about football.

Wrong. He trains here full time now. Im sure he does go and see his family though, but the only gym up there is golden glory and we all know how that went.

I'm sure they have great cardio compared to other 300lb men.

They have poor cardio compared to guys who compete in actual cardio intensive sports, like... say... Overeem, for example.

And I'm sure they do run in practice. Except they do sprints. Football is largely an anaerobic sport, while MMA is largely an aerobic one.

I know these guys are sick athletes. I know they can sprint like lightning. I'm not trying to disrespect them. But there's a fundamental metabolic difference between what they do and what Overeem does.

Well its Fair to say that the Pro NFL team is getting training out of it also. Though i do believe "NFL Team" is an exaggeration and actually means 3-4 pro footballers (But i dont know). So the NFL players are doing something different to train for a day. Might be good for them since as you say it kicks off next week. And 1 day wont hurt anyone.

He would murder Bones those skinny little chicken legs would snap off from one kick. I want to see the JDS fight but I'll take watching him destroy someone else before that happens.

Is Overeem allowed to fight outside of Neveda? He was banned by Nevada State Athletic Commission, can he still fight in other states or countries?
