This fight reminded me of Lennox Lewis vs Hasim Rachman. Lennox had the same exact disdain for his opponent and never took em seriously til he got KTFO, BUT...in the rematch he got his revenge. Hubris is something that always bites everyone in the ass. There's no doubt in my mind Overeem will redeem himself in the rematch.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Unfortunately, some money has been lost. Still can't believe that Overeem got knocked out, but that was very impressive win for the Bigfoot.

I believe I saw Overeem hurt before the headkick that lead Overeem to the cage, going to have to watch again, but when I saw Overeem cringe I was like "Bigfoot better jump now" and that he did.

I also thought that Overeem got rocked a little at the end of the second, nobody else agreed with me. That was until he got smashed in the third!

Gutted... truly gutted.

Terrible performance by Overeem and Bigfoot totally deserved the win.

Yah it was pretty frustrating. It's one thing to lose by a flash ko in the 1st, but The Reem was handling him in the first and second. He just didn't do any damage like he usually does. I seriously wonder if he was toying with em.

btw: Maia won. 500k That's my only consolation of UFC 156...sadly. I would have happily lost that in exchange for a Reem KO vs BF. Oh well...BF is gonna get it vs JDS.

PS: I see you made some coin...

Lost big on Reem and Rashad.

You know I remember you wrote that distinctively. I was like...oh man I hope he didn't jinx it. I remember watching pretty much all of his old fights even pretty much all of the K-1 fights. You can have your guard down if you're kicking ass and have your opponent on the ropes. BF was never in danger although he was losing two rounds. Alistair needed to hurt em or put em away. I'd like to hear from him and his camp to see where they think they went wrong.

Everybody got decimated on those two fights alone. OHKO lost 45 million I think...he made a last minute bet (24 mill) on Rashad which we can all agree on should have been a sure win considering Lil Nog's track record with wrestlers. Of course the wrestler...didn't wrestle and decided to strike. "IF" I had bet money I probably would become suspicious and say that Rashad fixed the fight...lolz! Hard to fathom really.

Perhaps there's more than meets the eye. Rashad has the tools, but he opted to strike for the majority of the fight mixed in with a few telegraphed shots. Overeem could have finished or AT LEAST hurt BF in the second round being on top of em for the majority of the round. Me thinks the trainers and cornerman have to shoulder some of the responsibility.

I just did not see a sound game plan.

My god, that KO was satisfying. Can't imagine how good Bigfoot is feeling after that.
