    Maybe, I've been wanting to see this fight for a long time

    Fan of both guys, little more a fan of the Reem

    My heart tells me Reem but my brain tells me DC

    Reem is the same reem of almost 2 decades ago , he will always be a front runner he losses the same way always, he has no heart.

    i actually think reem is worst matchup for dc and cain, due to his size, clinch skills and the knee strikes. but his chin can fail him anytime, its been said many times he is a glass cannon

    He went into the Blaydes fight with the worst possible gameplan: to counter the takedown with knees. But Reem is too old, and his reflexes are not what they used to be. He got taken down systematically. He should have rather stuck with boxing, sprawling and brawling, keeping out of Blaydes' shot, and moving laterally. He could have been much more successful.

    Man

    He was never a match for those dudes. Dudes half as good as them beat him.

    Reem is a very skilled fighter probably one of the best in terms of skill and power, but he has a glass jaw, no gas tank and no heart.

    Overeem came to the UFC and destroyed Brock(X-Champ) He lost his next fight to Bigfoot(Silva’s next fight was against Cain for the Title). Overeem then lost to Travis Browne(14-1-1 at the time). His next fight was against Ben Rothwell, who is not an easy fight. He lost.

    But then he went on to win 6 out of his next 7 fights. Defeating Werdum(X-Champ), Hunt, AA(X-Champ), JDS(X-Champ), and Big Country, only losing to Stipe(The Champ at that time) in a Title fight. That is a good run for any fighter!

    Most recently he lost to Francis(10-1 at that time) and Blaydes(9-1 at that time). Neither of those are easy fights.

    The OP is right... As far as just skill, he should be one of the GOAT’s. But there is more to fighting than just skill.

    Diverticu-Brock doesnt count.

    But yes i agree he had skills,but as someone who has watched the Reem his whole career,people had such high expectations (mostly when he went to HW) and really just saw how he looked,so they think he should dominate everything. I just saw a guy who falls apart soon as his bell gets rung. I was tired of people constantly overrating him to suc ha ridiculous degree. He's good,but never has been and never will be great.

    Kinda like an Amir Khan type

    Its hard to show heart when you have the gas tank of Renault Clio , the engine of a doge viper, and the durability of a paper towel

    Defense yes, cardio no, and fight iq yes. if you're asking if he has any, no he doesn't.

    He is very skillful but his cardio and chin only allow him to go so far.

    His defence is better than most heavyweights. They just seem to have better chins.
