I completely disagree...
Overeem's problem wasn't his ability to hang with top competition... it was his inability to stay focused through out the fight.
He was making mental errors, which I think he could attribute to some over confidence he brought within from other organizations.
Beating Frank Mir might not mean what he use to... but don't kid yourself. Frank Mir can still be dangerous. Overeem proved that he can put on a dominate performance, keep his cardio up, and remain focused through out the fight.
What this means for his future, we'll see... but I think this was a great step in the right direction for him.
