    Both of them are lethal and devastating with their kicking game. Overeem has better knees in the clinch, Conor has better high kicks.

    The only weak part of Reem game is his chin. Everything else he does great.

    Still, Conor is the best fighter ever. So you tell me.

    I really don't think Overeem could handle that speed and power, but his defense has gotten better lately.

    McGOAT, obviously. As a matter of fact, I'd bet on him vs. Overeem.

    Knockout, left hand shot, inside the fourst round.

    Reem = Muay Thai low kicks, body kicks, headkicks, knees.

    Now that he trains with Winklejon he even does those Savate kicks that Conor likes too.

    It's Reem by miles and miles.

    Conor throws every kind of non-muay thai kick in the game but his disrespect towards muay thai imo is one missing piece of an otherwise amazing skill-set.

    Overeem is obviously a more powerful kicker but Conor has a more diverse range of kicks.

    Many on here tend to overlook the many different kicks Conor has thrown in his UFC run.
