    Most wimp Refs stop the fight earlier and give it to Overeem. The Ref did a great job letting them fight. 90% of the refs stop the fight earlier.

    • Advance*

      You could argue that more than 90% of fighters wouldn’t survive that so they’d be justified to stop it earlier

      • BobGyro

        I thought Travis was out.

    • The Best Eva

      I agree whoever that guy was should be used more often.

  • Baltazar

    Is overeem ever going to be champs? I don’t think so. He is a great fighter but he dosen’t have enough cardio, striking defense and his jaws is to weak.

    • Werdoomb

      He isn’t going to be a champ for the reason that PEDs are banned.

      With PED he has some chance.

    illegal knees to the head of a grounded opponent

  • Cereal Killer

    Hey Werdoom, I told ya so!

    • Werdoomb

      umm…I said Reem was gonna lose you tard. I picked Shogun to win.

      Jesus you dooomb faack!

      • The Best Eva

        I was wrong here, but I ended up betting on Browne last min so I was happy.

        Reem looked good but slowed down and decided not to block the same kick Browne was throwing all night.

    a small fortune says Brown’s two boys are what got him off his knees there. He is a very emotional guy and great family man, you could almost see him remember his boys and pop back up.

    As for overeem, i dont need to reference my comments from a day ago on the weighin thread. Now all the Reem nut huggers can make excuses and cry in a tissue. Cheating doesn’t pay. No TRT, no juice, and apparently no more wins.

    • Milosc

      I saw that, too

      He was on all fours, hurting, then you could see the very moment he puts himself together. I have enormous respect for this man

      • bajafox

        Agreed, huge respect for taking that kind of punishment and coming out the victor.

        Problem is, if that were Cain, the punches wouldn’t get weaker…and they wouldn’t come slower either…

    @Baltazar, I’m not sure i would say reem has a weak jaw ect. There are some things, not apparent to the untrained mine, that may factor in to this situation. For one, kickboxing gloves are much bigger and easier to block with, not to mention the puncher’s gloves are larger and harder to slip through defenses.

    Second, i believe training striking without the context of MMA is bad when you use it in MMA. How many times have strikers said it’s different when you have to worry about TD. It’s a different mindset in MMA, even if the fight is all on the feet. This is IMO why we see so many high level strikers getting smashed by guys who are not striking only combatants.

    Lawler vs Manhoef is a perfect example. Yes lawler can bang, but he doesn’t have the striking credentials of Melvin, yet Lawler won by KO. If you are fighting or planning to fight in MMA, you should train MMA. Guys like Rory Mac, Jason Mac, guys who started a new geny training everything just do better. Their brains work better when it’s all mixed from the get go. Just my opinion, but i think it explains this phenomena we keep seeing.

    • Baltazar

      Wow! untrained mine… bla bla bla for the rest…

    • Lucas Freire

      While the gloves doesn’t make that much of a difference, as they are maybe 2 or 4oz heavier, on MMA they use very thick bands on their hands. The size of glove is more to protect the hand other than increasing the damage. The real problem is what you said, while on kickboxing matches they know what can be thrown at them, on MMA there is much more strikes out of positions, for example, a guy goes for a double leg and then recieves a mad upper or knee. He has no base, no way to absorb the impact, and that’s what makes the MMA KO’s much more frequent and brutal.
      Look at Melvin’s KO against Hunt, he was caught with absolutely no base, he was in mid-step, with both feets off the ground.

    • Budminder

      You’re comment could be appropriate for a fighter that have no experience in mma and a lot of experience in kickboxing but that’s not the case for Overeem. Man he have 50 mma fight and if he dosen’t train right… well that’s another problem. In my opinion the biggest problem of Overeem is his cardio and not his mma striking.

  • The Best Eva

    Travis Browne was awesome yesterday, and he won me some cash!

  • PhranktheTank

    Excellent kickboxing, solid ground game, great movement. But no chin. I thought before the fight it would be Browne by KO in rd 1, but I never thought overeem would lay that much punishment on him 1st
