Overeem better pull his head out of his ass for this fight. If he thinks he is the superior fighter against Junior its going to be a real short night.

He was quite easily defeating Bigfoot the first two rounds, more than once he tossed Bigfoot out of the way/down like a child, he didn't even look like he was trying in that fight. He got really cocky and paid for it, but I highly doubt he will do the same against JDS.

Overeem can definitely beat JDS if he plays it smart and is in top form.
But Silva is slow, has not a good striking technique and stood right in front of Overeem, that's something Dos Santos is not and won't do. Before the Silva fight, I thought Overeem could have a reasonable good chance to beat Dos Santos with his kickboxing, but after the first round I thought otherwise and gave Overeem a much much smaller chance to win against Dos Santos (he was cocky and dominant, but still couldn't really hurt Silva)

Predictions on what they say in the Countdown show to dismiss the first Cain - Big Foot fight?

-Big foot was injured leading up the fight
-Blood in his eye was a distraction
-Maybe pretend a first fight didn't happen

I love the Overeem fight, but it will be sad to see either fighter lose. Overeem hopefully learned not to be cocky and unprepared, and if he brings his best self to fight JDS it should be fireworks.
Silva-Cain makes sense because it's only fair that Bigfoot gets the same treatment that Cain got in his reclamation of the title, but realistically Bigfoot is going to get murdered so it doesn't really interest me as a fight.

Wanted to see Overeem rebound from the loss and get a title shot. Guess it ain't gonna happen now.

Bigfoot is gonna get murdered. Again.
