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...
It's a fairly good assessment. Definitely feel that Overeem could have opened up big time in 2nd round. He had em in a compromising position. That was his chance.

He needs to redeem himself the way Lennox Lewis did against Rachman part 2. That was terrible. BF went Sergei Kharitonov on em. He did take about a dozen hard shots as opposed to Travis who took one. Gotta count for somethin' I guesss. Now I'm going to have nightmares about this.

...Just grazing over the posts. BOY WERE WE WRONG! To sit here and say Bigfoot brutally knocked out Alistair Overeem is really trippy. Reem- Over confident, not respecting the power of that Brazilian Behemoth. This may and probably go down as the biggest upset of 2013. It was similiar to my avatar pic when Liddell KO'd Reem back in Pride. What now? Both Cain & Cormier already slaughtered Bigfoot. The entire landscape in the UFC HW division has gotten rocked and had a big shift. This is huge...

Well that made me sad. Thank goodness both Volkmann and Fitch lost to make up for it.

I wouldn't call it a fluke. Big Foot found his opening and capitalized. But no one in his right mind can say that Overeem didn't cost himself that fight by acting like an arrogant twit. He left his hands down. He left his chin out. And he hardly poured it on during the first two rounds. He was content to to stand there and smirk, and he only engaged when Silva came after him (and he won each of those exchanges in the first two rounds).

I don't normally give the loser the benefit of the doubt, but there's no question that Overeem is a superior fighter to Big Foot Silva. But, as others have said, it's HW. Cain Velasquez would have gone down to that barrage had he been stupid enough to play 'chicken' and allow Big Foot so many openings. Overeem could have lost to cans like Bob Sapp fighting like that. It's why you don't screw around at this weight class.

Got way to cocky. He never took Silva seriously. That goes to show that you should never underestimate your opponents. All it takes is one shot and you will be on the floor, knocked out. Especially in the HW division. Nobody should be taken lightly in the division m.

Bigfoot is a true fighter, he stayed composed during Reem's gas rounds and had a good flurry at the end. Looking forward to his next fights.

Overeem has a win over Brock Lesnar in the UFC.

To my knowledge, it was never overturned.

Overreem was "clean" for the Lesnar fight. He was found "hot" when training for a later fight. No affect on prior results.
