    Just seen Overeem VS Volkov targeted to headline February 6th card.
    Who do you see taking it and how do you see the fight playing out?

    A fight I have personally been hoping too see for a while now.



    Any chance a mod can put a poll up for this too?

    Reem comfortably coasts to a UD.

    Perfect matchmaking. Pretty impossible to predict the winner of a Reem fight but it won't go the distance.

    Makes sense. Good fight to make.
    Lets go Reeeeem!

    Met the dude in Vegas in one night while at Planet Hollywood. He was with some pretty hot white chick. I can hear him say "I told you I was famous" under his breath to the woman next to him as I got closer to shake his hand and to wish him luck against Stipe (this was June 2016). Very cool dude. I became an even bigger fan after that.

    Reem bless

    Old time Reem fan here but this one is hard to call. My heart says Overeem, my head says this is Volkov's coming out party.

    Speaking of Reem, it's amazing that he's still fighting in 2020/2021. Just goes to show you, all the PRIDE FC guys far outlasted their UFC counterparts from the same era. Where are the Sylvia's, the Hughes', the Franklin's, the Liddell's, the Pulver's of the world? All far into retirement, that's where they are. Shogun and Reem are about to fight soon and on winning streaks in 2020.

    I say Volkov on just being the less damaged and worn out.

    Probably Volkov but I'm rooting for the Reem.

    body in the 916, heart in the 707, and my minds in
    Strikeforce 2010 VS Bellator 2012, always pulling for Reem.

    Volkov fended off much more vigorous takedowns than Reem could offer in the Blaydes match.

    It'll come down to striking.

    Reem is good at gameplanning for a crafty KO when he sees a weakness, and Volkov has holes in his game, evident from the Lewis fight.

    I see Volkov using his reach and stalking overeem, winning the points battle. Overeem hunts for a KO.

    I think 60/40 volk but im not too confident

    Nah, takes him down and unleashes his underrated gnp for a stoppage.
