Fantastic read and I havn't even finished yet. We're several days removed from the fight so we can now analyze this closely.
Alistair Overeem's knockout loss to Bigfoot Silva highlighted the importance of discipline in striking. Even the best strikers in the world can be knocked out when they behave foolishly. We take a look at how Overeem threw away the fight.
Forget what you have heard about combat sports being about passion and durability - it's wrong. Fighting is a game of smoke and mirrors, and an entire bout should be spent lying to an opponent and hurting him when he believes you. Trickery lands strikes, not fast hands or granite chins.
