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)
