I don't think it's physically possible to lose to a guy who drops to his butt anytime you throw a punch at him. I have no problem with Werdum generally, but his strategy for that fight was terribad.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

In my opinion Werdum won. He out-struck him and had him in position he wanted a lot (guard). Overeem sat in guard and did NOTHING because he was terrified to get sub'd. But he won because he was on top. Werdum out-struck him.

In my opinion Werdum won that fight. Was it pretty? No. But he won in my opinion. Can't win a fight sitting in guard and being deathly terrified to move. Thats my opinion.

Who cares about your opinion? You think they are going to change the fight result because jonnyg has a different "opinion"?

Overeem won that fight against Werdum... end of story.

The most impressive thing Overeem has ever done at HW in MMA is beat a novice striker who was coming off a giant hole in his stomach and wanted out of the sport.

Who cares what you even have to say?

I can't have an opinion?

You sound like an idiot.

You're the idiot for thinking your opinion is more important than the official result of a fight.

Quote to where I said that? I said it was my opinion and I don't care how it was scored, that isn't going to change my opinion.

Quote to where I said my opinion is more important than the result? You can't because I didn't. And you are making stuff up like the jackass you are.

People have differing opinions on how fights are scored all the time. Get real and get out of this thread. You bring nothing.

Reem shouldn't retire but if he loses against another shit fighter he should be retired from the UFC.

They will probably let him beat up on Mir after he loses to DC.
