Landed way more punches and knees and had the heel bar connected at the end. MMA is not a slug fest, although all the events around are trying hard fot it to be. Log in to Reply McClinchey June 20, 2011 i dont get how 75% of these comments are “theyd both get destroyed in the ufc” like just because there in the ufc there instantly made better fighters or something. Styles make the fight, not the logo on the floor of the ring. Log in to Reply McClinchey June 20, 2011 just watched it a second time and it was just as boring this time, overeem should have been looking for more uppercuts as werdum was telegraphing the takedown, and werdum should have been deducted points for stalling.

He can fight more stuff like that on local shows all over the world. For me it’s quite simple. I remember when I enrolled to mma school back in the day, and went there doing grappling sparring, not knowing much, but guys started to like to spar with me, because I was attacking and basically not giving two shits about being whoopped. When I got a little bit better (but never good unfortunately:)) I started to spar with the best guy, as he said that the rest is so concerned not to lose, that they are scared to do anything. They’re stalling and don’t want to attack to not expose themselves to anything. Whole sparring was for nothing – the guy wasn’t getting anything from it, and eventually changed the club. This is exactly what I’ve seen. It was uninspire sparring session from both sides. GSP is doing it on a regular basis and that’s the reason why I stopped watching his fights (I haven’t seen Shields fight as he became to painful to watch). Same went with Mir (his Cro Cop fight was a mess). It’s not so about how good someone is, but if he is willing to fight. If the other side is not willing you should at least try to do everything you can to take him out. Werdume didn’t create any danger, yet Overeem didn’t do nothing for 90% of the fight. He didn’t even try and went on to put all the blame on Werdum, who did exactly what I thought he will.

That style he used in k-1 is not going to work in mma. JDS will pepper him and Cain will pressure him from bell to bell. He needs to adjust his striking defence and offence, and I’ll have to wait to see if he does. He hits harder than most of these guys, so if he decides to adjust, he has all the necessary tools to be the best. But if he sticks to this style, Bigfoot might beat him, Barnett should beat him, and JDS and Cain would simply be in a different class altogether. I’m still a huge fan, but I want to see him unload more, throw more combos, make people miss, not believe that stalking that big shot is sufficient, I mean Chuck used to do that, but he’d hit back in the meantime and avoid shots. To simply stand there and cover up until that big haymaker is not going to work in mma. And he’ll need to double his cardio work. I don’t remember the last time I saw someone so winded during a post fight interview. “f-f-forty pounds….*puff puff*….. of….of w-w-whipasssss…… *wheeze*” – that was embarrassing. While we’re at it, he should have never given into that showmanship hype. Adding 40 lbs is not a skill, it’s nothing to boast about as though that was his best asset. I’m still holding the faith though. He can make those adjustments if he’s serious and I still believe he is. I’m holding the faith.
