I think Silva is overrated.what has he done except beat down a declining Fedor? Is Arlovski really that superb of a win? Because other than that he has just been beat down by Cain, KO'd by Cormier and beaten by Werdum. He really isn't that impressive.

yup bigfoot is a garbage can, this is a feeder fight for the Reem to build him up for a title shot.. but i think this garbage can will give Overeem some trouble..

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

To be overrated you have to be highly rated to start with, nothing ive heard has suggested that - the wins you mentioned plus Browne should place him as "good" Lower top ten good.

What I don't understand is, that Big Foot says that Overeem lost all the credits by other fighters because he has taken illegal substances. He himself has also taken illegal substances, so why not talk about that, Mr. Big Foot?

I hope with all of my heart, that Overeem will beat this guy!

You don't have to be highly rated. You just have to be rated better than you actually are. If you are terrible, and people think you are less terrible than you really are, that is still overrated.

Ok, for a guy rated in the lower end of the top ten to be overrated...you have to be highly rated.

Didn't Browne blow out his leg on the first exchange of that fight? Bigfoot likely would have won anyways but I don't really see what that proves.

This isn't a matter of opinion, that is just wrong. Overrated literally means over...rated... Being rated higher than you actually are.it doesn't matter if you are highly rated. You just have to be rated better than you actually are. It's not what I think, it's literally what it means.

He doesn't have to be looked at like a top fighter,but people rate his skills based on a win against a declining Fedor and a Browne that was limping around the cage. Thus overrating his actual skill level. The Browne win wasn't impressive and doesn't really show anything as he literally had no movement after he injured his knee very very early in the fight.

EDIT: This is my last post regarding what overrated is as it is somewhat off topic.

This should be the co-main event by far. This is for the title shot!

I'm pretty sure Big Foot is going to rush out into the center immediately putting the pressure on Overeem right off the bat.
Problem is, it doesn't matter. Overeem has seen it all and knows what to do. I wish I knew how good The Reem's cardio is. Nobody has seen em go past the 1st round in an MMA fight for a long time.

It should be a 1st round TKO by The Reem. Left hook, left kick, left knee, who knows. Something brutal. I hope...BF does not flop then it could end up like another Werdum fight.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
