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.
