    He looked bad, but he has speed and power. His left hand comes with no telegraph and straight to the target. But other than that...

    Cmon man dude stands with Reem for 25 min almost and you can’t see any skill in that? HW is a different animal than 70s, how some of you cannot comprehend the difference in fight flow and movement is ridiculous.

    Tbh I think SD mostly sees every fight like the UFC game on Xbox.

    ground game was terrible to non existent.
    hands looked incredibly fast, his combos were fluid, he seemed very composed. looked like he was pitter pattering some of his combos.

    I bet on Big Boi because I thought he would win the stand up exchanges and be able to avoid any take downs. After all, I can't remember Overeem taking anyone down in many years. It was disenchanting to see how easy he was taken down by horrendous level changes and how can a guy so big/strong/explosive could not get back to his feet? I guess I got lucky. Even Derrick, who is no wizard on the mat seems to be able to get back up better than the Surinamese fighter. Wrestlers will be his kryptonite.

    Derrick Lewis challenged for the belt.

    He is still a title contender. Its HW.

    Yeah that’s why it’s best to have multiple weapons. This is MMA, not boxing. And don’t forget Stipe outboxed Ngannou statistically and subjectively. Admittedly that might not have been the case had Stipe not had his wrestling but that doesn’t change the fact Stipe beat the predator in every aspect of the fight. And don’t sleep on the bombs in Stipe’s hands and Granite chin if wanted to stand against anyone.

    I reckon overeem would be considered a decent grappler.

    He has power punches and nothing else. He looked like a helpless fish on the mat

    I doubt Derrick can count to 5 let alone get to 5rds without a oxygen tank. Rozenstruik still looked fresh and still had pop to spilt Reems lip in two clean pieces with one punch.

    Don't think he will block punches with his face versus this guy. Unsure why he did it versus Cormier... Both looked terrible in that fight.

    Current Lewis has a lot more than just bombs...He can kick, grapple

    Prime Overeem beat those guys...this version of Overeem would get KOed by Hunt, JDS, Roy, etc

    But it isn't. For Stipe to have top notch head movement, he sure does get punched a lot on his head. DC was constantly connecting with Stipes head. Ngannou or Rozenstruik would KO Stipe if they can land that many head shots to Stipe.
