This stuff will be shown in highlight reels and Reem threads for years to come. Absolutely crazy.

Who could've predicted a couple of years ago that Bigfoot would beat both Fedor and Overeem. It's crazy, he not just beat them, but stopped both.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Overeem was handling Bigfood in the first two rounds without giving som much damage. In the beginning of the third Overeem looked like the gas was out. One hit and and his whole defense was out of the window. He(Ovreem) just quit.
Props to Bigfoot. This win is far more impressive than the Fedor win.
But both Cormier and Cain tooled Bigfoot and I am quite sure that JDS will do the same. Right now Bigfoot must be ranked around number 5 i HW.

Reem you fool. Like Rogan said, you must respect EVERYONE. But instead, when a 300lb man comes at you punching, you just move back, hands down chin up.

Poor fight and poor sportsmanship from Reem.

I'm glad that Bigfoot KO'd his dumbass. Why would you disrespect a guy that size.

As much as I expected and was looking forward to Overeem destroying Bigfoot here, I can't deny that Overeem just fought stupid and absolutely deserved to lose that fight.

Shame, would have loved to see Cain vs. Overeem, but we'll just have to wait I guess. Wonder what Zuffa will do now.

Just rewatched the fight and I think that it wasn't really a fluke... Overeem tried to win, had his opportunities... then he rushed with the attack, failed with the clinch, was hit with a few hard punches, started covering up and displayed a pathetic defense. With those K-1 gloves he might've been successful but in the UFC that doesn't really work... So I guess, Overeem lost not because he disrespected Bigfoot's skills (in fact, he won the first two rounds) but because of terrible defense in the third round. He did what he always does, goes out and pressures guys against the cage, hits them with his knees in the clinch. There was nothing new, but Bigfoot truly defended himself well, drag Overeem to the third round and legitimately won the fight by simply being a better fighter... mostly due to the better cardio and better defense, I suppose. The bottomline is, once you hit Alistair with something heavy and keep pouring on him no matter what, he will go down and won't try something of his own...

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

The good news is that Overeem may learn some humility and the UFC can make big money on a rematch.

I still can't believe the end result, lol. Even though I was screaming at Overeem to keep his hands up the entire fight.

Heavyweight is like that you land one really solid shot and it doesn't matter that you are 1/50th the fighter that your opponent is.

Bigfoot is officially the new gatekeeper of the HW division.
