Brock never could take a shot, pre or post illness. See how he reacted to the jumping knee Mir threw at him in their second fight. He completely crumples for a second before gripping that single leg for dear life and taking the fight to the ground. Brock was never good at taking a punch and refused to allow people to spar hard with him. His training routines consisted of lifting weights and wrestling.
Overeem would have demolished him either way. In the Bigfoot fight he was still the stronger of the two fighters, every time they clinched he was in clear control. Notice how he always managed to turn Silva into the fence and never ended up in a bad position. Alistair even threw Bigfoot like a child and maintained top-control for half a round. At the end of the day it was his game planning and lack of discipline that caused the loss, not because he was on or off any PEDs.
