    I'm talking about Ubereem, when he fought Brock, legitimately one of the scariest fighters ever. How do you think he'd do against Prime Cain? Before all the injuries? I believe these two are tje scariest heavyweights of all time and lots of people say Overeem at that time was unbeatable, I'd say Cain at his peak would have beaten him. This fight would have been amazing, pity Cain got injured so much. Dude was scary in his own way.
    Who do you think wins and would this be the most skilled heavyweight fight ever?

    Uberreem by demolition. Cain's grappling would've been null and void which was his biggest weapon. Getting it to the mat. Reem in the clinch was dangerous af. I don't remember ever even seeing that version of reem getting out grappled, muscled, or pushed. I think cain gets clipped and does the stanky leg blowing out his knees in the process

    Is Ubereem the guy who got KO'd by Bigfoot Silva?

    Cain. Overeem obviously had better standup but Cain was the overall better fighter.

    Prime Overeem dusts him like Ngannou and JDS did.

    Nah. That was his first fight post-Lesnar suspension.

    a career crossroads. The beginning of the transformation into Econoreem.

    Ubereem would have destroyed any version of Cain.

    Cain. He would have taken reem down and prime Cain was a relentless ground and pound machine

    I would argue that Ubereem was the Overeem that fought Rogers and in K-1, as he had already lost a considerable amount of size when he faced Lesnar. Anyway, I honestly believe Ubereem was as close to invincible as we're ever going to see and he would absolutely demolish Cain. Brock couldn't even move him an inch. Current Reem is such a far cry from those days, it's like they're two different fucking guys.

    I think cain would have done what he did to JDS, he started the second fight by shooting a takedown out of the gate and just pressured the fight out of him. I don't think cain would have given Reem the space to work his clinch, and I doubt ubereem would just try to spam his knees, given that cain could get a takedown. If cain gets his down once and holds him there and beats the fuck out of him which he did to everyone on the ground, overeem is done. Not saying overeem can't win, he could knock cain out but cain would have been the favorite.

    Ubereem via KO in the clinch or guillotine.

    Not seeing how he's the better overall fighter when Overeem has better striking and sub grappling.

    Invincible until, you know, he gets hit on the chin. Ubereem was his most dangerous stage, but his chin has always been susceptible.
