Reem is too skilled and too experienced, he got knocked down to earth in his last fight so should be concentrated and prepared to outclass Browne in this fight.

If not, he's on his way out.

I agree with this.

Browne has never really impressed me all that much. He was largely outgrappled by Cheick Kongo and despite a "freak" injury, he was getting outclassed by Bigfoot.

Overeem should take this convincingly.

I'm no Browne fan. But Bigfoot was out classing him? I don't remember that at all. Bigfoot looked more comfortable, and Browne was hopping around and hurt himself. Not much went on before Browne injured himself. I could be wrong.

Bigfoot never really impressed me much other than beating Fedor. And much of that was size and Fedor having already surpassed his peak. Truth is, any decent striker with power can beat Overeem on any given night. His chin is below average. His speed is below average. Who is too say he learned his lesson? He is a head case any way you look at it.

Reminds me of the documentary released after the Reem got KTFO by bigfoot where they were walking around home depot and joking how they could get jobs there if nothing else.

If Reem loses this... he might want to give that some serious consideration.

It's not that I think Browne is that big of a can, I just think the Reem is suppose to be top level and I don't see him having a successful gate keeper career in the UFC.

Travis pretty much danced around the enite fight thinking he was Dominick Cruz or something. Every time he attempted to attack, Bigfoot defended well and countered. That was the story until Browne got hurt. I think Bigfoot (and I have a pretty low opinion of Bigfoot) beats Browne 8/10 times.

Browne was the decent sized favorite going into that fight. Not saying I would pick Browne over Bigfoot if they fought again (its close). But Bigfoot really didn't dominate him until he blew his knee. Browne looked like a goof, but Bigfoot didn't dominate.

Browne is a good fighter who should be considered a prospect. His MMA game is heavily striking based.
Overeem will like this matchup because he will fully be able to strike unlike his other matchups where he was noticeably cautious of the takedown and opponents switching levels. His lead hand wont be as low as his hip this time.

Overeem is too technical for Browne standing and main factor that puts Overeem above is the timing. I am sure Overeem will land his powerful counters and throw heavy knees clinching if he misses a counter. Overeem will roll with Browne's power strikes and make him pay.
