The way I see it is that Big foot looks more like a fighter than Overeem . You could see that Overeem has a lot of holes in his game when he fought Brock Lesnar ...
Big foot its very tough , he can take punch and you could see that he has more MMA experience than Overeem , the way he fought , even when he was on his back , he started a lil scared... I still think that the fight between him and Cain ended by TKO cuz of that cut and he couldnt see much (don't get me wrong Cain still would won that fight but by decision )
And if Overeem would fought JDS ... JDS would dominate him cuz Alistar has a glass chin for a heavy weight , not that Silva doesn't have a mean punch but still you can see in his lowlights that he gets in defensive mode when he's hit.

^ Overeem has 49 MMA fights (And 14 kickboxing fights) while Bigfoot has 22 MMA fights.

I agree with Overeem having some holes in his game though, but so does Silva. And I don't think JDS would simply dominate Overeem - it's actually a fight I'd be very excited to watch

I think this is one of the only times I've ever watched a UFC fight where my jaw actually dropped in shock. I couldn't believe it, I was so sure Overeem was going to come in and just destroy him and Bigfoot was a stepping stone for him to get the title, but wow. I have a new respect for Bigfoot, he is not to be taken lightly.

Being able to say you've beaten Overeem and Fedor has to feel just a little good

What works for Werdum can work for Bigfoot.

Even though this was an upset we shouldn't be surprised it happened. Overeem looks good right until the other guy tags him with a good shot. Then its all downhill from there. This was classic Overeem.

Yah fighting the right game plan enabled him to get that. He waited patiently and made his move at the right time.

I'm pretty sure both fighters were bewildered after losing. Antonio Silva is a top 10...but not championship caliber. He's always going to be a slow moving target for quicker accurate strikers or wrestlers.

I think Alistair should take em down and GNP. He needs to bring his brother to the States to help em train and more importantly to keep em grounded. Also good for moral support. He should not have allowed a lesser ranked heavy weight come from behind like that. If I were him I'd tape the entire gym walls with that atrocious picture of Big Head.

*Note* The reason I had a strong feeling Cain would take the rematch was because of how close him and JDS are, but more importantly how he looked against BF. I saw the look of absolute disgust and disdain. He wanted to hurt em. Cain was all business. Anyways I posted up a video of Lennox Lewis vs Hasim Rahman for those who havn't seen the fight before. Last night was the exact same scenario and in the rematch Alistair will not take em lightly.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

We might see the best of Overeem if he didn't have to worry about a 280 pound guy taking him down.

I hope nobody is really wanting an instant rematch as sounds like when ppl brings up Reem would walk through BF next time. Everybody thought that he would for this fight as well. BF won in a fair manner. He did what he had to. Nice game plan that worked. Reem maybe wasn't samart in this fight, but BF was by using his tools at the right moment, and that must be praised.
If a rematch is to happen, it should be down the road. Now BF climbed up a step and Reem climbed down one. To force them to fight again just because it was an "upset" and maybe bad for business is not fair to BF. It would be like what SF did to Scott Smith against Cung Le. Poster boy being granted a rematch after a KO, not a controversial decision.
