Okay, you're practically crying. Look I'm just trying to explain to you how it works. If you talk trash and then lose badly, you're likely going to get ridiculed to an extent. It's just the way it is. You can call Bigfoot names all you want, he earned the right to put Reem in his place.

Jeeze reading your post would make one think Canadian Psycho is cursing up a storm in BigFoots direction.

Instead the only thing he called him was a hypocrite.

I'm actually enjoying this because the buildup for the rematch will be oh so great! Big Foot will be overconfident the second time around.

Anderson did finally vent on one of his interviews where he said, "I will break you face man!" He tried to do just that. I've never seen him swing at full power from the get go before, but if you watch very closely in the opening seconds he went for a huge left hook or right hook right before he got taken down. He tried to end it right then and there. It was actually very close, but Chael had already ducked. Second round he carried out his promise which subsequently made me pound the table in celebration and yell. Funny thing is everyone else started yelling too...haha! Rejoice! I wish I could have had that same emotion this weekend.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Bigfoot can talk all the trash he wants at this point. The man beat Fedor, and beat Overeem, you have to respect him for that. Even if Overeem avenges the loss, bigfoot has pretty much solidified himself as a threat to just about anyone so he's definitely here to stay.

I predict Overeem is on a downward spiral. if he get's JDS he will be KO'd. If he get's a good striker like stefan struve I see trouble for him as well. Anyone with good cardio and heavy hands is going to be a problem. I even see Kongo landing and once something lands that's it. The guy starts gassing. That's been his story going all the way back to Liddell.

It's not that he has a glass jaw, but it's his cardio. As BF said, when he gets hit he starts breathing heavy. Now hitting him is not easy, but those that can do it will beat him. Those who can't will look really bad against him.

after the fact it isn't trash talk. he punched overeem in the face and has first hand experience to draw from.

he probably isn't even being hypocritical. the only point that has been advanced is a vague reference to the fact he is for respect, and a inference that what he is saying is disrespectful. his love for being respectful may require him to make reems lesson as hard as possible so he will learn to respect people in the future. or maybe he is a hypocrite just like everyone else in all of recorded history.

Honestly who gives a rip? Overeem is going to get demolished by fans and fighters alike. Just look at what Wandy posted.

Brazilians are very sensitive about respect, but rarely give it themselves. Just look how their fans act in Brazil events. Any one not brazilian get's booed. They even get booed if they beat a brazilian.

Overeem talked smack. So what? BF talked back after winning. He felt he was dissed and he's brazilian. How can you not expect him to talk a little smack?

But the way to deal with it is not whining about it. You want to shut them up, stop talking and win.
