That was quite a story by Bas, who I respect as a fighter and a person. But it still doesn't change my opinion that Overeem will probably beat Lesner.

Overeem doesn't have anything to watch out for, afterall yeah JDS sure looked world class against Mamute Ferreira. Overeem better watch out for the elite striking he showed in that fight, or he's in trouble.


See? I can post nonsense too!
Comparing a fight 4 years ago to a fight 5 months ago? Word. When's the last time Overeem finished a striker in MMA with strikes?

It should be interesting the next time Overeem is on inside MMA.

I wonder if he'll reconsider things when he goes 0-3 in the UFC.

Top 3? I don't think he could beat Kongo or Meathead. He's too slow.



Thank goodness we have posters who can set things straight when Bas doesn't know what he's talking about regarding fighters and trainers.

How many times have we heard this before in the recording industry, film, and sports especially in boxing.

Perhaps there's more than meets the eye here. I think the UFC pulled some strings and got into his (Overeem) ear. This all happened right after all the GG fighters were pretty much axed from SF.

Anybody have articles from the GG camp.

The other fighters who left Golden Glory when they made it into the UFC were:

1. Heath Herring
2. Gilbert Yvel

Wouldn't be surprised if Overeem's run in the UFC goes similar to theirs.

I don't see anything wrong with what Alistair did. He's probably making ten times the money now that he's with the UFC so it's only natural he wants to re-negotiate percentages. I sure as hell wouldn't want my manager and trainer to have 30% of every million I earn. Now if I was making considerably less, let's say 200k, 30% sounds fine since the real money I make comes from sponsors (unless that money goes to them too). Come to think of it, 30% is still 60k. And one third of that goes to my trainer, that is 20k. Now let's say I'm making a million. So they get 300k and the trainer gets one third of that, 100k, every time I fight.

You'd have to be very stupid or very out of options to sign this contract.

I don't see Overeem getting opponents that match well with him stylistically. I really see him getting torn up pretty bad in the UFC but who knows?

Though to be real it's going to be

1. JDS
2. Winner of Barnett/Cormier
3. Cain
4. Winner of Lesnar/Overeem
5. Barnett if he loses, Mir if he wins
6. Mir or Lesnar if he loses
7. Cormier if he loses Carwin if not
8. Carwin or Overeem if he loses
9. Overeem or by default Antonio Silva
10. Mike Russow

Well the UFC likely signed him to somewhere in the 250,000 - 400,000 range, he's going to get a PPV cut and a huge sponsorship deal so I expect he'll bring in at-least 2 million from this fight win or lose, if Brock continues to draw a million PPV buys without the title it will be more than that.
