Punchers like Cain or JDS will be more dangerous for him. Log in to Reply madona September 13, 2011 Overeem is considered the best striker in mma. Why would “Punchers like Cain or JDS will be more dangerous for him”? Log in to Reply SomeBloke September 13, 2011 @madona. Because Cain and JDS are very comfortable with what they do. Overeem may be a better all round striker but I think the way they that both Cain & JDS could drop bombs or go to the mat is something that K-1 doesn’t prepare for (IMHO). Remember that Verdum was landing in his fight and his boxing is considered as good. Log in to Reply CraigEvilEbel September 13, 2011 The reem might not be big enough for carwin and brock but also not as fast as JDS or BROWN PRIDE world wide. But hopefully now we have the flood gates opened for more HW talent. Log in to Reply lol September 13, 2011 B/C “they would be more dangerous for him”. either you get it, or you don’t. Log in to Reply junglerottjim September 13, 2011 good luck reem Log in to Reply Gaudy September 13, 2011 Reem sounds inspired. The first time I think I’ve heard him try to suppress his excitedness. Should be a good match. Log in to Reply CJ September 13, 2011 Wrestlers will be his biggest challenge for obvious reasons, but Brock will probbly get pwned in the first round unless he takes overeem down Log in to Reply Georges St. Pierre September 13, 2011 Madona are you serious? Log in to Reply ajitator September 13, 2011 lol, brock gets no break in the ufc. Log in to Reply fighter27 September 13, 2011 madona…good question!!! i want to see how he will handle it with a very good wrestler! Log in to Reply Young September 13, 2011 He can’t be the best if he hasn’t fought the best yet. Now we’ll see if his striking is the best. He couldn’t ko werdum and jds punched his kights out. Log in to Reply Young September 13, 2011 Lights* Log in to Reply Shredded Coconut September 13, 2011 Hah! Who calls Reem the best striker in MMA? Log in to Reply omar September 13, 2011 haha…I like the MMATKO sign at the top, left corner of the room. Log in to Reply MMA Truth September 13, 2011 Because no matter how much training you’ve endured, or physical mass you’ve gained, you cant fixed a cracked chin. Overeems been KO’d alot in his early career. Cain and JDS both have KO power. I Log in to Reply dznr September 13, 2011 @madona They are more dangerous because the striking is much more crisp and powerful then Brocks. Brock is a large guy and a good wrestler but has seen in his previous matches he still lacks the tight technique for striking and clearly doesnt like to get hit hard. (but can take it) Log in to Reply casyboy September 13, 2011 future looks bright for H.W div….even more so if dana will let barnett fight in the UFC… Log in to Reply J.Ernteman September 13, 2011 ^^^^ For the love of god let Barnett in . Log in to Reply KouNTa KuLCHa September 13, 2011 Win or lose, I will always support Übereem. So hopefully Brock loses ( 😉 ) so we get to see the Reem fight the best, well-rounded fighters in the world! (i.e. Cigano, Cain, Carwin, and even Mir) P.S. People criticizing Alistair’s performance in the Werdum fight need to pay special attention to his next fight. I’m fairly certain Brock will not try to lure him into his guard. And if you think Werdum’s (piddly) striking was good in that fight, please never comment again! That is all.♠ Log in to Reply 1999 September 13, 2011 i like overeem. but was so dissappointed with him vs verdum.. he better be prepard. alot of people want to see him loose. sorry for my spelling. Log in to Reply murell September 13, 2011 Hopefully Reem doesnt get busted for P.E.D s, he has done well so far with his timing on his cycles,but u never know. Log in to Reply mirkocrocop September 13, 2011 I am also for Barnett to hit the UFC…guy is a beast and would love to see him against some of the best HW. Log in to Reply dandydoodle September 13, 2011 The Reem is gonna kill Lesner! Log in to Reply ramrod September 13, 2011 rip off i know it sounds crazy but we all know that Dana White pays crap this dude was making way more money in K-1 and in Pride back in the day.. those Japanese people are crazy for MMA all these wild shows and crap .. too bad there is no more orgs that can compete with the UFC Log in to Reply steamer September 13, 2011 Brock will make a nice tune up fight. As long as Alistair is up on how to not get taken down or pushed against the cage this should be a lock. JDS poses the biggest threat, Alistair has been KO’d or TKO’d by many people (Liddell, Hari, Kharitonov), so if Junior can find a home for those sick hands of his he could end it. As for Cain, I feel like he’s well rounded but doesn’t excel enough in any one area enough to rank as a higher threat than JDS in my eyes. He’s every bit as good a wrestler as Brock, but he’s kind of a small HW. So if Brock can’t over power Overeem I don’t see Cain doing it. (not saying it isn’t possible though) and as for his hands…everyone that fights Nogueira catches him on the chin at one point or another so for Cain it was just a matter of doing so hard enough to stun him and flurry to a finish and he did woop Brocks ass real quick, but with Brocks questionable chin and pathetic striking defense I feel like there are a ton of HWs that could have rushed him and shut his shit down like that, Cain was just the first one to have the balls to actually do it. Cain is a tough guy in every area but I need to see him really blow the doors off a solid guy like JDS or Overeem before I’m sold. Log in to Reply glassjoe September 13, 2011 MMA Truth, well said. It seems we have all forgotten how he got rocked before he started using the juice. And the juice doesn’t help the chin at all. Log in to Reply jack.perpetual September 14, 2011 Of the two personalities, I’m definitely routing for reem. Really, I just hope the fight comes to fruition and lives up to the hype when it happens. As long as Brock keeps his colon clean and Uberoid doesn’t stub his toe, I’ll keep waiting anxiously to accidentally stumble upon a site that’s coincidentally streaming it on one fateful day in December. If anyone is putting money on this, please consider how much faster Lesnar can drop a deuce with 12″ less of his colon, making way for who knows how much more training time…slight edge to Lesnar. Log in to Reply oz September 14, 2011 Lesnar being a tune up fight is a joke! Lesnar will take him down and easily control him. Log in to Reply Reallynow? September 14, 2011 Don’t look passed either fighter. Brock can win just as easy as Reem. This is a tough fight for Reem still. He has made it to the biggest stage now. Pressure is up to see what he is really made of as a HW. His striking is fine, but a lot of power shots. Fabricio ****ed the fight up for Reem. Shit happens. Used to be the slogan Free Pimp-C, but now it’s Bring In Barnett. Log in to Reply whitesword88 September 15, 2011 yeah I thought after Reems last fight Barnett had the best chance to win. That fight with Werdum where he threw haymakers and looked bad, I think Barnett would take him down and control him. This is a good move for him, becouse he was going to loose in the tourny, now he gets paid anyway. Log in to Reply tally12 September 15, 2011 Foolishness to underestimate Brock…just saying. Log in to Reply PitFighterZ September 15, 2011 Foolishness to underestimate either fighter. Uberroid has a very good ground game and, as long as he doesn’t get stuck under Brock against the cage he could pull a Mir (1st fight). The Reem may have looked bad against Werdum, but it was mostly because he had no respect for Werdum’s striking. This fight could end up just like Overeem v. Duffee. Of course, Brock “Not in the Face” Lesnar can outwrestle Alistair and hold him down for five rounds. I do think Alistair has a better chance of winning, especially if he hits Brock with his knees and elbows. Log in to Reply steamer September 16, 2011 I didn’t think Reem looked all that bad against Werdum. I was there. He had no respect for Fabricio’s stand up and wasn’t going to be a total tard and jump into his guard like Fedor. He coasted to a smart win.
