His "win" was nothing to get emotional about.

I'm not saying Browne would have beat him, I can't remember who I picked and I might have even picked Browne because that Cain fight really brought Bigfoot down in my eyes but there's no doubt Browne messing his leg up by trying to act like Dominick Cruz impacted that fight and he was basically a one legged man in ass kicking contest.

Gonna be a bad night for him when he fights Reem.

I just hope Reem stands with him instead of wrestle ****s him like Cain and I hope Big Foot can last more than a few minutes before Reem possibly hurts his own foot. This fight will speak volumes for both sides I think. They need this fight to show the world the Reem is not just a juice machine and is legit and Silva needs it just to prove he is relevant.

Cain didn't "wrestle **** him" he just plain ****ed him up, and it's all Bigfoot's fault for throwing that kick first thing.

Overeem is light years ahead of Bigfoot on the feet, I expect it to look like Cormier/Bigfoot just in more brutal fashion, with kicks and knees.

Sorry I guess my absolute down right hatred for Cain clouded my judgement and memory on the Silva/ Cain fight. I hate that guy.

Hey Troll, please respond before you fill the forum with more BS:

Look i'm not gonna say the illness did not affect him, but come on now. Withered, faded, and ruined? That's really pushing it.

Brock never liked getting hit in the first place. That was obvious from the get go. Up against someone like Overeem who he can't simply out muscle and bring to the ground he was left with no recourse but to strike with a much better striker. How exactly would this fight have gone differently in 08/09? Brock certainly gained skill from 08/09 so do you really think that a small loss in muscle mass would really break Lesnar, or ruin him, as you put it?

The fact is Lesnar was never good, he just came to the UFC at a perfect time and got perfect opponents. Let's look at his record:

Wins:

Herring: Average fighter, much smaller than Brock, was on the way out of the MMa game.

Couture: Completely undersized compared to Brock. Literally the size difference is the same as Machida fighting Bendo. There was like a 40 pound size difference. Oh, and let's not forget Couture was an old man.

Mir: Lesnars one shining victory. Although he still used size and strength, he did show some good ground technique. I sign that he is improving, at least a bit. Lesnar also lost to Mir the first time.

Carwin: Practically a striking clone of Brock. Carwin is a terrible fighter that relies on size and power forgoing technique. Brock barely won, too. Carwin had him near finished and few would have argued if the fight was stopped. Brock showed how average he really was in this fight.

Losses:

Cain: Lesnar got exposed. A much smaller man with much, much, much more skill makes him look silly. Before his illness "ruined" him, as you put it.

Overeem: Lesnar is up against someone his own size for the first time. The only problem is Overeem is a much, much better striker, and since Lesnar can't simply use his size to drag Overeem down, we got the result we did: Lesnar was forced to strike and got exposed again.

Overeem in any way he wants. It's time people start giving Bigfoot props, he will literally take any fight with zero fears or reservations. If I were him, I'd be scared though, Overeem is going to come into this fight with a killer's mindset.

vBookie Record: 16-9

Riiight, let's stop the silly bickering about Overeem-Lesnar.

Bigfoot is just the type of guy Overeem prefers which is scary.
