Again I get the claim that he had his hands down and everything but when he actually got beat in the 3rd it was a time when he was evading and trying to defend and the initial punch that rocked overeem was one where his hands were not down. So I don't think him having his hands down was the actual precursor to him getting KO'd.

Oh and btw... I really hope JDS or someone else knocks bigfoot out cold. I just don't like him.

There's no reason for Overeem to retire...he just acted cocky... didn't take Big Foot seriously... and he got punished for that.

Retire? No. Keep his hands up? Yes.

No, Overeem was on an 11 fight win streak and hadn't lost since what? 2007 or something? He is handily winning this fight and then gets caught. I doubt he is anywhere near in need of retirement.

If and when Overeem wins his next fight, everyone will claim 'he's back'. If every fighter whom MMA fans wanted to retire after a loss actually did so, there'd be no one left. I've also read comments about how Rashad should retire and there was even talk of Fitch needing to call it quits. One loss for an otherwise good fighter is hardly reason to call it a career.

Definitely not retire, like everyone has already been saying, the man was just being cocky.

Blackzillians just suck. Not sure why anyone would go there or stay there. Proof is in the results. Terrible camp. Terribly cocky fighters.

He should ask for cans. I mean that is what made him look good in the first place.

People don't seem to understand what a chin refers to apparently. He is similar to Brock Lesnar, in that he can take punishment, but he doesn't react well to punches. He doesn't move away/cover up/ or fight back. He looks broken and just takes a beating. His chin is not the problem at all, it's his reaction to getting hit. Look at the guys who Ko'd him. Chuck/Shogun/Kharitonov/lil nog. It's not embarrassing to get finished by them, but perhaps it is embarrassing to get finished in the manner he does, where he just crumples. His brother is the same except even worse.

This all day. Their results speak for themselves. Something clearly isnt working out at that camp when there top fighters all seem to be doing worse since they took up with them.
