Alistair Overeem UFC 146 press conference

Many people, Alistair Overeem included, seem to think it is almost a foregone conclusion that he will defeat Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 156 on Saturday night.

Overeem has been out of action for the past year due to drug test related sanctions in Nevada. But while he was away, he says he used his time wisely to keep improving, refining his game and working on some of the things that he hasn’t had time to when in the midst of training for fight after fight.

That’s not what he sees as his biggest advantage over Bigfoot, however.

His biggest advantage? He’s just the better fighter… at least he believes so.

“I’m a better fighter,” Overeem said at Thursday’s UFC 156 Media Day in Las Vegas. “I’m just better.”

    Big fan of Cain I respect him but and I love Bigfoot but please I am dying to see Reem VS Cain and for Reem to win just to shut people up. The guy has world class kickboxing and the way he handled Lesnars take downs was a display of a true veteran mixed martial artist. Either way win or lose to Cain it’s the biggest match up in that division. The most decorated fighter in Reem fighting Cain who has beat up everyone.

      Lesnar Did not even really try to take overiod down thats why lesnar lost…lesnar tried one single leg take down till he got a knee to the stomach and that was it the fight was over.

    Overiod won’t pass Bigfoot and will end up packing…out of the UFC

      Wow that’s a pretty big statement. I’m very positive if The Reem does lose to Bigfoot he wouldn’t be let go by the UFC.
