Congrats to Bigfoot for showing everyone he still got game. Hopefully he can keep up the momentum.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

BF had a game plan tonight. Tie up Reem and wait. When you are as big (and as unnaturally puffy) as Reem, you have a round, at best, to end the fight using your power. Watch the fight again and it all makes sense. Nothing flukey about it. Reem gave him the fight as soon as he thought he could clinch or wrestle BF. BF has the natural size and natural endurance.

If Lesnar, whom I despise, had done this, I bet he too could have beaten Reem. He will never be UFC champion.

Loved this fight.

That fight turned out this way because BF played a safe fight the same way he did against Travis. Where he stayed put and had his hands up high. He knew they weren't going to take em down which is a very big advantage so he simply bided his time.

Round 1: Overeem starts off the way he usually does stalking his opponent, but he couldn't get off. He doesn't like to overcommit either to leave himself open for a counter. So he ended up clinching em against the fence and kneeing em. Thing was he never really landed a big shot. Just bascially controlled BF.

Round 2: Same thing til BF tried to clinch and take Overeem down. Overeem reversed it using his superb strength. Here lies the key. He didn't capitalize. Where Cain pounded him out relentlessly along with Cormier, Overeem hit em with short shots, and a few hard body shots. Nothing too damaging though. Then I think he let em up in end of the round which enabled BF to get a good shot in.

Round 3: BF is down two rounds. What do you think he's going to do. This is where a sound game plan and cornerman comes in. Noticed he didn't have his brother Valentin there or even in his UFC debut. In the future I'd suggest Overeem having his bro there cuz he's someone he'll listen to and also someone to keep him grounded and focused. In the Brock fight Overeem said he had a vision and a plan which he executed. In this fight it really looked like it was all improv. He wasn't able to execute the way he normally fights...landing one big bomb like he usually does in all his fights. This was a testament to BF tight defense. For a wrestler they'll welcome that high guard and take em down.

If you ever fought it's really tough to circumvent someone who stands there with a high guard especially if you don't have quickness or speed. Overeem landed a few leg kicks, but not enough cuz he didn't want to be susceptible to get taken down. He also knew BF was playing the waiting game. Again that's where Overeem should have just cornered em and landed at will rather than toying with em.

Poor execution in the 2nd and third especially for a championship caliber fighter. First round was a feeling out process. Second he got as dominant position as you can get. BF isn't going to pull a sub or sweep against em especially if you're getting your fists in his face. This one is going to haunt him for a little while.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
