    I'm not a huge fan, but man people around here HATE this guy. Ever since last night whenever his name is mentioned people immediately: CAIN IS GONNA KILL HIM HE HAS NO CHANCE JDS WOULD KILL HIM blah blah, and it boggles my mind.

    I don't like or dislike him as a person, but as a fighter? The dude is absolutely solid as fuck. His striking credentials are head and shoulders above anyone in that division, he has a nice submission resume in mma and there's no doubt that Ubereem is a different beast than LHW Overeem (regarding his LHW losses).

    I'm not saying he's going to beat Cain or JDS, but I think it's fair to say he has a good chance, and for what it's worth anyone saying how horrible he is every time his name is mentioned are just as silly, if not more unjustifiably silly than the people saying he'll kill JDS or Cain, because like it or not that's a distinct possibility.

    tl;dr: Overeems a pretty cool guy he eats horses and doesn't afraid of anything

    I think it is how AD comes across, he acts like he is the man, shows zero humility and also like the booing fans he made a condescending comment on twitter about JDS after his loss.

    Seems like a likeable good guy right there.

    He is direct, integral and honest, something not so common in these days.

    He eats horses.

    Noone who eats horses can be a fan favourite.

    JDS come across as very dislikable also and every other thing he says is demeaning to another fighter. Seems like a likeable guy right there.

    He cheated to transform himself from a lhw who got overpowered by Shogun into a hw who pretty much outmuscled Brock Lesnar. I can't think of another fighter who gained anywhere near the advantage Overeem has by using PEDs.

    He had every right to talk shit about JDS after JDS had been talking shit about Overeem for months. Karma is a bitch

    Supercharged has a deep-seated desire for Junior to make him his woman. He tries to disguise both that fact and his tiny, malformed penis by bashing him.


    Sherdog: where it is more reprehensible to get angry at a cheater than it is to cheat.

    I don't hate him. Nor do i like him. But his fans on here are delusional saying he is the HW GOAT and will slaughter every HW in the UFC with ease. That shit is weak.

    He's foreign
    He's half black
    He is huge
    He is handsome
    He bags hot white women
    He has charisma
    He got caught using TRT

    This all spells jealousy from the MMA community, point blank period.
