    So Peter Aert's corner threw the towel after the 2nd round. Does anybody know what happened?

    Apparently Peter Aerts broke his hand 2 weeks before the fight but went for it anyway.

    He probably couldn't take it anymore after round 2.

    Much better than his MMA record (15-15), he should stick to what he's good at. Best of luck to him.

    Yeah transition hasnt been easy for him. Kickboxers usually never make it. I can only think of 2 out of many high level kickboxers who have

    Overeem wasn't a kickboxer who went to MMA, he was already an MMA fighter.

    Overeem joined Chris Dolman's MMA gym at age 15. Even though he fought in Kickboxing first because he wasn't old enough to compete in MMA, he was still training MMA from the start. It's not like he transitioned from Kickboxing to MMA like Mark Hunt or Cro-Cop, or even Stephen Thompson.
