    It's amazing tbh, but people will still shit on him for his KO losses. The fact he's managed to amount a record like that with a poor jaw speaks volumes.

    If he had ever captured even an interim belt his resume would be unimpeachable

    Two fighters I would name for the greatest career longevity and undying desire to compete (and continuing success at doing so):

    Hendo
    Reem

    Agreed and when you consider Hendo had a jaw of steel late into his career and Reem was being knocked dead in Pride, it shows the guys skills are unappreciated on here.

    I hope he strings some W's together and gets a titleshot. Would be a nice crown to his career.

    Overeem has beaten some all-time greats in kickboxing as an MMA guy as well, true legend and the sport's most long-lived high-level veteran.



    Frankly, I don't think we'll ever see a resume as strong as Overeem's again, because fighters simply don't rack up 80+ bouts like him anymore.

    For example, people often bag on Overeem because he's had a good number of KO and TKO losses -- but how many more times do you think, say, Cain Velasquez would have been caught by now, if he had 80+ fights on his record instead of just 17?

    No doubt, Overeem has been and is a top tier fighter.

    Crazy to think how long some of these heavyweights have been in the game.

    the brett rogers win was relevant at the time. cant exclude that. i think rogers was ranked 5-7 in the sherdog hw rankings at the time. just coming off of the fedor loss where he put on a good performance and gave fedor some issues

    edit - and how did i forget igor. shame on this dude for not mentioning igor. what a dope

    80+ fights and still lucid. It'll be good if he transitions to training fighters when he retires.
