    If Bigfoot went up against some tough wrestlers it would give him more of an edge in this rematch. Best of luck to him. I wouldn’t mind him winning and hopefully Overeem vs Dos Santos for #1.

      This is one of the most unexciting main events in a long time. After getting one of the worst beat downs in a long time he beats a nobody in Travis Browne, then a…lets just say not as good as usual Overeem…now he’s back against Cain in a title shot? I see it ending the same way as it did before…just a time waster until JDS is back in the #1 contender spot.

      As far as Overeem…I don’t see him in the title picture anytime soon. He needs a couple real solid victories with no drama surrounding them before he should be even considered for a #1 fight.

      Honestly…this whole card is pretty week. I think Cerrone/Noons is probably going to be the best fight on the card.

        Cain, JDS and possibly Overeem will run that division for a while. Cormier needs to figure out what he’s doing. Nelson KO’s everyone but falls short in every big fight. Hunt is to far behind on his ground game to ever compete against a guy like Cain, Nelson or Cormier. As for Cerrone/Noons; I’ll take Cerrone on that, he’s still a great fighter.

        • Mark McDowall

          I don’t think you can put Overeem anywhere near the title picture right now. After his suspension, then his poor performance in his last fight…he needs to be drama free and string together some strong wins before he can be put in the top 5 even. A fight against Nelson could be a quick way to get back in to it, but I don’t see that happening. Overeem/Cormier could be intersting since they didn’t fight in the SFGP. Honestly I think Cormier needs to fight a real contender before he can be considered up there as well.

            I agree with you,people are putting to much hope on an Overeem that already gives signs that he won’t be that kickboxing machine everybody was waiting for. His unjuiced bout just gave it that he NEEDS the juice to support all that muscle mass lol

          • urdooomb

            Not really sure what juice does to you.

            But yeah…the dude obviously needs something to prevent him from going back to his PRIDE days where he does well for the first 5 minutes only to limp and wither.

          • Lucas Freire

            Is the thing that made possible the lean gassing Overeem at LHW be able to stand with all that muscle mass
            I mean,you see guys going up a division,winning a few pounds…But what happened to him is just impossible naturally speaking. Being a lean 205 and becoming the biggest 260 on the game? I don’t think it was willpower.

          • Christopher Flores

            You know Overeem had that fight won, despite having his way with Silva for 2 whole rounds. Saying that Overeem was unjuiced in that bout proves he’s a top 5. He didn’t take Silva seriously at all and despite dropping his hands most of the fight, was having his way with Silva like he paid him to be in there.
            Make no mistake, an Overeem vs Silva rematch would end very differently, much sooner.
            You’re free to love/hate whichever fighters you choose, but never discredit the raw power and elite skill Overeem consistently displays.
            He was arrogant and got caught by someone who has very heavy hands. Silva is slow and not very accurate, but he is very powerful. He’s not in the same league as Overeem

          • Lucas Freire

            I agree with you on the fact that he was winning and playing around with Big Foot,but it doesn’t make what I said any wrong.

            Overeem was never famed for his stamina,not even when he as a lean LHW. My point was that he gassed out on 2 rounds of a match where he didn’t do anything else other than “not KOing” Bigfoot. He didn’t throw a flurry of punches,he didn’t attempt many TDs,he didn’t suffer from the bottom on the ground,he didn’t get caught on some half choke…and still on the third round he was as gassed as Brandao would be on a 5th round lol

          • drkdisciple

            If Big Foot gets a title shot after beating Overeem (in a fight that Overeem dominated for two rounds) then Overeem cant be that far off from a title fight. Not like there is a long list of contenders in that division…besides Junior and Cormier there is very little talent left!

          • supadon

            Overeem DOMINATED the 1st two rounds in his fight with bigfoot!!? Where u watching the same fight as me??? Id say it was kinda 50/50 certainty no domination going on….

          • Lucas Freire

            I was hoping for a KO by Big Foot,but you gotta be delusional if you didn’t see Overeem with a much more agile and dominant posture throughout the 1st and second rounds.

          • drkdisciple

            If you thought the first two rounds were 50-50 then no we were not watching the same fight. “Dominated” might be too strong of a word but he obviously did more then enought to win those two rounds.

          • urdooomb

            60/40 reem.

          • urdooomb

            it wasn’t 50/50 breh.

            60/40 reem. But it wasn’t domination.

          • Mark McDowall

            I agree with you that Reem won the first couple rounds. But look at him pre/post fight. He had lost significant muscle mass(look at the pictures of him pre-lesnar fight and pre-bigfoot fight), looked slower, didn’t have the same power in his strikes and gassed in the beginning of the second round. Then post fight he gets tested and has borderline dangerously low testosterone. I’m not going to say it was or wasn’t the effect of him previously being/not being on roids or whatever…thats a dead horse that has been beaten too many times. But the guy obviously has some medical issues that need to be dealt withm probably keeping him out of the cage for a while.
