    I think Rumble would take it.

    Overeem only fought at HW and LHW as far as I know. If you are thinking of Pride, their MW translates to UFC LHW.

    Dunno, AJ was visibly near death by cutting (and missed weight quite a few times). Overeem was more of a natural looking lanky guy at lhw who decided to put on mass by roiding and become a HW monster.

    Sure why not, it's Overeem's brain, he can do what he wants with it.

    Probably, I mean Overeem has negative chin at this point.

    Reem has got Ko'd in 4 of his last 5 (he was flash KO'd in the Werdum fight)

    Needs to hang em up nothing more he can do but trade brains for money

    Matching up a glass chin with one of the hardest hitters ever?

    You must hate Overeem if you’re suggesting AJ as an opponent...

    He has no chance anymore defeating someone like Johnson...

    fuck it why not. johnson didn't knock out arlovski, reem stands a chance to not go asleep. a small one but still. let's not forget reem never had a chin to begin with...you can't lose what you never had. beat the shit out of hunt, thought he would get his head knocked into Row Z by the super samoan, but he took some good shots including a HARD elbow...didn't even flinch.
    johnson is a fuckton bigger now though, that guy must be pushing 280 now.

    What does Overeem have for AJ at this point, besides a live body?

    I mean come on, can you even envision Overeem taking even one flush shot from LHW Rumble, not even mentioning SHW cutting to HW Rumble?

    Worked for Arlovski. Maybe Rumbles power doesn't crack glass.
