    Where he beat Fabricio Werdum by sitting in his guard for 15 minutes. 6 months before that he beat Todd Duffee (Who was on like, 3 weeks notice) by TKO. He is currently not licensed to fight.

    I like Alistair but there is no reason to think he's the best heavyweight in the world.

    Overeem will take the belt away from Cain, JDS will then become #1 contender and get the belt from Overeem, which will lead to JDS/Cain 3.

    Reem will destroy JDS.

    JDS' striking was overrated and glad it finally got exposed.

    He didn't get busted for that fight. He got busted leading into the next fight.

    It is a legitimate fight but how the fight went down left a lot to be desired. I actually think Werdum has come a long ways when it comes to his striking and would actually pose a much bigger threat if they were to fight again.

    Cain still breaks Overrated off

    He was outstruck by a wrestler tonight. He has never been tested against an elite striker. His striking was always overrated.

    But we use our skills of deduction to realize that this is evidence that he passed other tests because of cycling, yes?

    C'mon...Cain shoot 33 takedowns attempts tonight...We can say JDS hands were ready to try not to be groundpounded instead of covering his face... They're both great!!!And I am not a JDS fan...Overeem must demonstrate all...not these 2 big guys...

    Brock Lesnar? Come on. You have seen his record right? 5-3. With wins over Min Soo Kim (?) and Randy Couture (not a real HW). So he was 4-3 against HW, and 3-3 in the UFC. Hardly 'stellar' competition for Overeem, despite the fact that he was a former Champion.............

    Yes, Overeem is disgustingly overrated. I think it has to do with his appearance. (strong roided out black guy)

    He faught like shit against Werdum and beat a WWE wrestler (big woop) and now all of a sudden he's the GOAAAAAT.

    Yeah, I seen the record. I'm just not going to sit here and act like the guy failing the first surprise test he ever had to deal with (Since becoming Ubereem) is indicative of it being the first time he used steroids.

    Now we're playing into assumption, yes? With assumption we can claim that any dominate fighter is on steroids, they just haven't been caught, yes?
