I think being embarrassed by Big Foot is going to ruin Overeem's confidence. That is the first time he had been tool'd since becoming Ubereem and I personally feel he's always had a mental weakness....

I was pretty upset when Cain beat JDS because I never thought Overeem would lose to Big Foot.... this is definitely the match I wanted to see.

This is exactly how I feel... I want to see this fight... but really don't want to see either of them lose.

Everything is in reverse right now. It's so much more different now. Whoever loses is going to take two steps back and if it's The Reem three steps. Which is mind blowing. You see someone work their way up going through all the battles and in an instant everything changes. Welcome to the world of the UFC.

If Overeem holds his hands low JDS will KO the dude pretty quick, if he holds his hands up?.....JDS will KO him a bit later on in the fight instead.

The guy has had plenty of KO/TKO losses in the past, I really dont think that this one wiin will derail him or change his gameplan too much. He never would have been silly enough to try and clown around with JDS, regardless of how his recent fights had been.

JDS will do this, JDS will do that, blahh blahh blahh arggghh

I think this is a very close fight.

Keys to Victory:-

JDS:- Finding correct range to box, avoid getting backed up against the cage(because then Overeem can pack some serious power behind his strikes and make the night really short for Cigano), after the first round Overeem is very much likely to get slow which can add to JDS's good conditioning.

Overeem:- Do not get into a fist fight(regardless of the K1 background, Overeem is still a kickboxer trying to out-box the most successful BOXER in UFC is not worth taking the risk, esp when tool in his arsenal is more to than just boxing), improved gas tank is a must because he needs to do a lot of moving and throw a lot of kicks and knees to the body.
