I'd rather see Reem/JDS they are both in the top 3 at heavyweight as far as skill goes.
Overeem top 3? Doubt that.
I agree I think Overeem and JDS could take Hunt to the ground and probably win there. But would they? Overeem has touted himself as the best HW striker....which he isn't. He isn't better than JDS or Hunt on the feet. I bet Roy would find his iffy chin. Cormier would school him one way or anything.
And if anything we learned Bigfoot has more heart/power/chin than Overeem...even if he isn't technically better. Overeem being a K-1 champ has little to do with MMA. He got lucky in that tourney and he has the luxury of wading in with big puffy gloves protecting his chin. His size and power was too much for those guys when he cornered them.
