Reem let the ball drop to a repetitive front kick... deserves to lose.

Travis Browne deserves a lot of credit for keeping his cool and maintaining composure. I thought Overeem was gonna finish him but he couldn't find the kill shot. You can't teach tough. Overeem looked like the killer I always wish would show up every fight but it was not sustained, I think he was as surprised as I was that Browne was still up and throwing nastiness. Pretty kick to the face but the hammer fists were nuclear! Good stoppage, I think you really have to hate Overeem to think that was stopped too soon. Browne is not fighting the Winner of Dos Santos vs Cain I think. Werdum will probably get that call. I like Browne against the winner of Barnett vs Mir.

Overeem is not going anywhere to suggest he will be cut or should retire is absurd. He just went ham on a dude and was an inch away on any of those punches from getting his hand raised again. He looked better in that fight then he really has in years, not counting the Brock fight since that was pretty easy for him. Reem losing opens the door for a lot more potential fights for him then if he were to of won against Browne. He'll be back.

I like MMA less because of this forum

This is really interesting. He beats Brock and Werdum and was winning against BF and clearly against Travis. You can't say he's over rated. What you can say is that his physical attributes which is usually his asset became a liability.

If he could sustain that level...it's game over even with a weak chin. His offense is his defense. That's his game. No doubt he should get one more fight.

Frank Mir would be ideal. High profile fight and very winnable.

Otherwise it should be against Mark Hunt. No excuses.
K-1 champ vs K-1 champ. Pat Barry is out of the question. Although a good dude, he couldn't make it in K-1 and got booted out of Ernesto Hoost's camp not to say he can't win against Overeem. It's just status wise.

Roy would be third on my list.

Without a doubt it's do or die for The Reem.

I'd say give him Brendan Schaub, although that may not be sanctioned since Schaub could quite literally ride an imaginary bicycle to heaven.

He didnt intelligently defend himself prior to being "kicked in the face" so i doubt he would even be able to defend himself on his back

to everyone saying it was an early stoppage: Overeem was not coming back from that but it sure would've been nice to see him eat a few more hammerfists.

Crazy to say it was premature. Sure, Overeem could'v recovered quickly (didn't he stand up a few seconds later it was stopped) but Browne was all over him. If Overeem's not complaining, why should we?

K-1 is highly overrated. It is an entirely different realm of striking. Like I have said, Overeem is a good striker. But people rate him way too high in that department. Coming to the UFC people said "easily best striker at HW" "maybe best striker in the UFC as soon as he steps foot in the Octagon.

His K-1 championship was an easy road, beating up battered fighters. He was a roided out fighter who held his big puffy gloves by his face and bullied guys into he corner or ropes. Then he unleashed. There are no big puffy gloves in MMA. There is a threat of a TD. It is a cage not a ring. And Overeem may be off roids. Couple that with his always been questionable chin. And always been fragile mindset. He was never some elite HW. He hasn't even beat a good HW yet in his life unless you count hole in stomach Brock as a good HW. The Werdum fight was nothing and showed nothing. Nothing happened. If anything Werdum out-struck Overeem.
