Wow... so everybody really is leaving the Blackzilians. I've never seen such a fail of a gym before.

Gokhan Saki is the man. The way he beat Ghita down was amazing.



Back on topic, stupid move for Overeem. The last thing he needs is to be playing around in a kickboxing gym all day. I'm not sure what'd fix his problems though. He's like the Brandon Vera of HW.


Except that when Vera was at HW he was wrecking face... so he's like the Brandon Vera at LHW of HW... yeah.

If training with these guys can make him keep his hands near his chin then I'm all for it. He probably didn't get hit a lot during his time with the Blackzillians so he thought dropping his hands would work just fine.

Well...

Overeem with hands up = beats Bigfoot

Overeem with hands down = KTFO

Overeem didn't lose because Bigfoot exposed some hole in his game. He lost because he's a pompous arse. These fighters aren't going to give him the option of keeping his hands down. That in itself will be an improvement.

Well said... I tried repping you for that statement but I need to spread the love more it seems... He really was arrogant that fight he pretty much knocked himself out.

I don't know if it matters whether Overeem's hands are up or down.

He's used to blocking strikes with bigger boxing gloves. Werdum consistently punched around & through his guard even when his hands were up.

Every mma fighter from a dutch kickboxing background is terrible at blocking & evading strikes.

Martin Kampmann, Overeem, Stefan Struve. Whoever else I'm forgetting. Even when their hands are up, they're getting knocked out.

Overeem isn't the exception, he fits in perfectly with that group.

Good move, although I wonder about the quality of MMA fighters and more specifically wrestlers in that gym. I would love nothing more than to see Overeem reach his full potential at heavyweight.
