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.
Here's the problem. Cain vs JDS III is purported to be happening now although I would love to see JDS destroy Antonio Silva for all five rounds please. There's nobody higher than Overeem other than Cain, JDS, Daniel Cormier who already beat BF. Maybe Barnett. So that's why I proposed it. I don't think people would mind at all. Either way they'll meet again.

Personally I do not want to see JDS vs Cain III this soon, but the hw contender picture is a bit cloudy at the moment.

Mir vs BF is a fight I'd like to see. DC should KO Mir pretty easily. I want DC down at 205.

Hahah...it actually started with him vs Arlovski. He started clowning Arlovski even though the fight was pretty much over.



Fast forward to 9:20 and you'll know what I'm talking about.


I was like wtf. You won, so what's the point.

THEN...he beats Fedor whom he outweighs by over 50lbs. Although I like the way he gave him a bow which showed respect. I think it's his demeanor. So yah...I thoroughly enjoyed DC and Cain wrecking him. Hey, this sport wouldn't be exciting without having these type of upsets I suppose. It's good to have favorites and villains to spice things up.

The funny part is that remember when Reem and Fedor were considered the #1 and #2 HW's in SF and everyone was pissed they weren't fighting? Who would have thought Bigfoot would lay them both out?

That was the biggest holy shit moment on a night when Jose Aldo threw a freaking superman punch off the cage. Just stop and comprehend that. Also the former LW champ moved down and went to a controversial decision against the dominant FW champ and just as many if not more people are talking about Bigfoot knocking out Overeem.

And your point is? Toxic said that Overeem was winless in the UFC, and I merely corrected him. The 'merit' of said win never entered into the discussion. Run along.

I Stand corrected it was on that license and it should have been over turned because it was a conditional license but long story short Lesnar retired and never pursued it so it got swept under the rug.

Didn't the Tale of the Tape have Bigfoot as 255lbs. People keep saying he's 280lbs & 300lbs. If he's weighing in under 265 then 255 has to be pretty close to his fight weight right?
