Reem has to get one good win and petition for a rematch against Bigfoot and avenge that loss by finishing him in the same fashion he was finished by Big Foot. Only way for him to earn his credibility back at this point, cuz that was a goddamn embarrassment. If he's lucky Bigfoot will win his next fight, and he can use the BF fight as a springboard for the HW title again, only this time Bigfoot will be much more credible as an opponent.
Yah no doubt. Everybody knows he's far more skilled, but BF fought a safe and smart fight. He was air tight in his defense and didn't allow much to get through. For a fighter who doesn't use much movement or combos it changed the dynamic of the fight. Alistair initiated the clinch and controlled em in the first, and took em down with a sweet slam in the second once again controlling the fight for the majority duration of the fight.
If his cornerman were smart they would have said what every other person in the world would know. BF is going to come out head hunting and going for broke. Alistair should look for the opening, move, OR take em down.
Well, I guess I have to end it with Proverb 16:18.
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
Overeem has been through this path many times before. He knows what to do.
Here's his Tweet hehe...
