    Always thought of him as a roider, nothing more. Ubereem on the other hand was a sheer monster.

    But hes been doing pretty good for himself for a while now. Do you think he's all time great heavyweight?

    Definitely.

    Overeem has 25 wins as a Heavyweight, fighting legit competition in Dream, Strikeforce, and the UFC.

    Sure, he's gotten blasted a few times, but that's bound to happen fighting in the Heavyweight division.

    An instant HOFer for sure, although there were fights that he probably should have won as those were crucial to his reputation as a fighter.

    That Travis Browne and Bigfoof losses don't really sit right with me either.

    He's kinda like the HW Henderson.

    Insane quality of competition but he's lost a lot of those fights as well.

    Abso-fucking-lutely he’s an all time great HW. He’s taken some losses, but overall has a great resume of names, multiple major titles (held all at the same time, in one year). Dude is a goddamn savage.

    How do you not? He has been fighting forever and even though his chin has been shot for ages, he has found a way to alter his style to reduce the ko's and get wins.

    Yeah. Been doing it for so long. Only thing you can argue that would keep him from not being a great HW would be the roids.

    Is there anyone else currently on the UFC roster with 18 losses?

    Anthony Smith has 16 but I think Overeem has the record.
