I just wanted to say...(Overeem - Bigfoot)

Never in a million years would I have given Bigfoot a chance against the machine Overeem. Except a lucky submission. Man, Bigfoot, they need to take a picture of him and put it next to the definition of Redemption in the dictionary. Wow. Bigfoot, congrats brother, you deserve a big win like this. Biggest win of his career, bigger than Fedor. Nobody gave Bigfoot a chance. Un-be-lieve-able.

Not to take anything away from Big Foot, because his KOs are usually sexy as hell, but Overeem practically handed him his chin on a platter.

lol it was a great win, but I gave Big Foot zero chance against Fedor, but he destroyed Fedor more impressively that Reem.

Overeem is still in his prime. Fedor was kind of old.

Bigfoot's like a waterboy type of fighter.

You know, whatever, it happens. I'll forgive the Reem, you wanna know why? Cuz there's still Vitor Belfort fans out there. Reem lost Okamistyle, via 3rd round randomness.

Having hardcore fans is great. From a relevant and business stand point, it moves Bigfoot up in the rankings and gives him some credibility, so he wont get released from the UFC.

Overeem made the same mistake Travis Browne did against Bigfoot, he thought he was so much better he could come in there and play around and make him look like a clown.

I'd say that's a poor game plan against a guy with fists the size of lunch boxes.

He was beating BF decisively for two rounds. If he had his guard up that punch wouldn't have gone through. He tried slipping which is what you do if you don't have your guard up, one punch caught em then it stunned em. That was the start of the chain combo. Overconfidence is indeed a muther fawker. That being said I have full confidence (lolz) Overeem will destroy BF in the rematch. He basically had em in the first and especially in the second round, but he didn't TEE OFF. Whether he was conserving energy, toying, or didnt want to be placed in a compromising submission that was the key. He allowed BF to go for broke just like with Boetsch against Okami.

I find Big Foot to be annoying especially his fight against Arlovski, his win over Fedor, and of course tonight. I'm glad Cain and Cormier did a number on em. I don't believe he's the better fighter than Fedor or The Reem. He simply stuck to his guns and fought his fight. That's it. Now he's going to get KTFO by JDS, he'll also lose to Barnett.

btw: Where's Carwin! Carwin vs Overeem would be interesting!

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I think Carwin is recovering from surgery and he might be retiring after his last loss.

Yah I have a pet peeve of fluky wins. It was and it wasn't. The Reem was asking for it by not taking him seriously enough. IE: Look at Cain. He just attacked from the opening bell and was relentless.

Suppose the only consolation was that it wasn't in the first round so it gives credence for Overeem to get his rematch down the line.

I see this happening.

JDS vs Bigfoot where he's gonna get his big head pounded on for three rounds please. I don't want him to get KOed to quickly. Three rounds of punishment will make up for tonight.

The Reem vs Nelson please...haha. I want to see The Reem cause "TKO" by way of diarrhea by implementing forceful knees to his belly.

Mark Hunt would be good or Kongo too.

Interesting. Always enjoyed his fights. Don't worry The Reem will be back.
