I think its funny how people are using Mezger and Overeem as examples.
First of all his fight with Overeem was over 3 years ago and his fight with Mezger was almost 6 years ago!! damn...
I've used this saying before. "apparently UFC fighters cant improve."
If you hadn't noticed hes been dominating every grappler, i know that doesnt say much but some of these grapplers are actually decent strikers. Randy Coutore, Renato Sobral, Tito Ortiz..Okay Tito Ortiz isn't that good of a striker but Chuck just took the hits from him willingly not showing any signs of being hurt, it was basically making Tito look like an idiot.
They may not be world classed strikers or great but in their credentials you will see that they can strike none the less.
Besides, usually when I see good strikers up against good grapplers they really dont "dominate" them standing, just have the edge during this process.
