As a JDS fan I would be butthurt but it would be great for the UFC.

Overeem with a streak is PPV material.

He has a decent jaw he just has the cardio of a cancer patient and no heart. Overeem has taken some huge shots in his time and not gone down, he just gives up when shit doesn't go his way.

Its the bully mentality similar to Brock. Both are used to being the big guys in the ring and being able to scare their opponents into not fighting back. But when their opponent doesn't give a fuck and puts their fist on his chin, Overeem checks out.

Hand speed? Maybe. Power? Reem probably has more punching power than JDS.

They have equal torque and just look at the difference at how they are built.

People act like Reem sucks at MMA all of a sudden, when he beat the guy in the number 1 contenders match recently.
I still think Overeem is among the top heavyweights, I just think Cain and Junior are clearly the top two heavyweights and there is a big gap.

As the converse, it's possible Cain won't make it out of the first 2 with Alistair.
Well Cain could also knock out Overeem in the first two rounds as well, he did stop Bigfoot twice in the first round with ease. Cain has actually finished a lot of fights in the first round.

The same way...

lol what are you talking about? he lost because he GASSED and couldn't recover from the strikes.

He didn't get outstruck and tooled. In fact, it was the exact opposite. Overeem was beating Big Foot, and was on the brink of destroying Browne.

Overeem is not the greatest fighter ever, but you're suggesting he's not even a world class fighter, when clearly, he IS.

This exactly. Bigfoot gave no fucks about Overeem being a murder machine at the time. Say what you want about Bigfoot, but he's not afraid of anyone.
