I didn't really care who won but damn I think the fight was stopped early. Reem still had his hands in front of his face and got up easily 5 seconds after the fight was called. No stumbling or nothing. You can't help but feel that way after seeing Browne get dropped and then get pelted with enough shots that most ref's would've called it. Good ref'ing for Browne because he was able to recover but bad on Reems behalf for sure.

Seriously, that was disturbing. Really, you can't catch/parry/dodge a naked front kick??

Overeem has problems with defense period. He's great at inflicting his damage and uses offense as his defence. The second he waits and lets the opponent strike first he gets in trouble.

If you notice in K1 a great deal of his 'defence' is basically covering up with the big gloves and firing back.

The fight was not stopped early, Overeem took a kick straight to the chin which dropped him and then he had his head bounced off the floor a couple of times with two of Brownes hammer fists because he could not defend himself. The ref saved Overeem from serious injury and made the right call.

I bet Brock wishes he wasn't such a baby and tried to hang with Reem for a bit longer. Reem has about a minute of gas in his tank, then he is done.

Not a fan of Brock, in fact i kind of got to dislike him because most his fans are pretty dumb, but hey, he took a tremendous liver shot, you don't recover from that in a couple of seconds...

The monster who fought Lesnar is a totally different proposition to the Overeem who fought after that. Basically, once he was made to stop using whatever man-juice he was pumped full of against Lesnar, hes looked physically not the same fighter at all.

just to point Overeem was covering up. His guard was up there, but the kick went between his hands, just like he was expecting it to go to the body, pretty similar to what happened to Vitor.

I am not even a Overeem fan, but what is the deal he was a K1 star and got KOed by Browne? Crocop got absolutely demolished by Gonzaga with a high kick to the head. Sh!t happens. Does it mean Crocop defense sucks or he has a glass head? The kick was brutal and so was the one Browne landed.

I know the guy juiced and disrespected opponents, but I believe anybody has the right to correct their mistakes in life. If he is fighting juice free now and addressing his flaws I will not hate the guy purely for errors made in the past.

Come on now people saying Overeem is not UFC caliber. That is a stretch.

Browns through the kick at his face at least five times prior to the one that put him down. It wasn't like Browne was disguising it or setting it up, the Reem just has no gas tank and even less striking defense.

He was disguising it indeed.
He trow it to the body 4/5 times without too many force nehind it, so when Overeem was expecting another weak kick to the body he just pushed it all in the Reem's jaw.
