IMO Alastair kills him here. He stands wide open.. he takes punishment all day.... this fight is taylor made for Reem.
As much as I agree, I also cant help but realize if Ben comes in and lands some big shots he could win this and it wouldn't shock me.

He has a better chin than the reem too.

I also feel that the Antonio Silva fight was tailor made for reem and he blew it so IDK.

technically and skill wise Ovreem is galaxies ahead of Rothwell
See I dont think Reem is that far ahead in skill, clearly athleticism but skill.. I think thats overstating his ability's but then Ive always felt reem was a glass canon.

Did Jones put the comment online then delete it?

Overeem should easily take this. As others have said, though, Overeem should also have taken the Browne and Bigfoot fights.

As for Overeem injuring people is it possible he just doesn't know his own strength? I'd like to think that is a possibility but it is really starting to sound bad. 3 top tier fighters all claiming the same thing.

My guess is brain damage, you hit him the right way and he snaps into fight mode for a few seconds

Yeah, most likely outcome IMO anyway. Im still hoping Ben goes in and just bumrushes his ass off, lands a big shot and finishes overrated.

That would piss Dana off and I like that. It puts Overrated in jeopardy, if he did lose the next fight could potentially be his last in the UFC, and I like that.

So im like WAR BEN ROTHWELL!

Honestly, I think part of the reason I like Roy Nelson and Nick Diaz is because they chafe Dana.

I honestly don't think Nick Diaz chafes Dana.... it looks more like Dana is a Nick Diaz groupie.... and the more Nick treats Dana bad the more Dana loves him.

Bigfoot didnt either.

Browne was way more athletic than Ben but he didnt either.

Ben has a chin. He wilk take onr and pop reems glass chin. I could see it. I guess Reem can play it safe and kick from the outside.

Ben is a slow lug of a man. But he has a chin and power. And against reem that can be enough. Not a great matchup for reem considering thr lack of return on a win.
