Why is "Ubereem" so highly regarded on here despite getting KO'd by Bigfoot?

    @ts I’ll go easy on you junior cause you seem casual..

    how much of the forum actually knew REEM was contemplating retirement pre Bigfoot fight due to a career ending back injury?

    nevertheless, he called out JDS for his return fight only to accept a title eliminator with Bigfoot

    Bigfoot fought on elevated T as per TRT exemption...

    REEM actually had dangerously low T levels and would’ve been eligible for TRT had he not pissed hot pre UFC146

    https://www.mmafighting.com/2013/2/...stosterone-level-at-dangerously-low-levels-in

    Retrospective to the fight -

    round 1: all Reem

    round 2: the fight should’ve not been stood up with 0:30 to go and REEM doing damage.

    round 3: I’m surprised it’s often overlooked that Reem was stunned by the (unintentional) clash of heads at the start of the round. You could immediately see Reems knees buckle and he was on shaky legs thereafter - still managing to slip several punches until getting caught with a head kick that started the combo. also it took several combos to actually drop Reem although this was never good for career longevity.

    since this fight Reem has beaten Mir, Struve, Nelson, Hunt, Werdum (who have all KOd, subbed Bigfoot) KOd JDS, AA and fought for the title, almost dethroning the champ with his second strike of the fight - a straight left! Despite catching KO losses Reem has reinvented himself over the years - Ecoreem, Wrestlereem, Wolvereem.

    Bigfoot is 1 - 10 since his Reem win.

    2H2H, PRIDE - STRIKEFORCE, K1 and DREAM heavyweight champion. 40 years old and gunning for one last title run. Put some respect on that mans name. Bonafide legend sure fire HOFer

    Uber fluke by Bigfoot nothing more, nothing less

    Fucking noob.

    That wasn't "Ubereem." That was the first fight after he got busted for roids and had a long layoff.

    He actually had abnormally low testosterone for this fight and the Browne fight because he'd been cycling for so long.

    Also, even at the height of the Ubereem craze, everybody always recognized that Alistair's glaring weakness was his chin, and there were a large number of detrators who were waiting for him to get KO'd.

    That was Overeem's first fight after being suspended so it wasn't Ubereem. Had he taken it seriously he never would've been KO'd by bums like Bigfoot and Browne.

    It's been a while so my memories on K1 are a bit rusty but beating Badr was definitely a big accomplishment. But a little later in 2010 he actually won the finals in Tokyo which I think was his biggest accomplishment (something Badr never achieved).

    Overeem is a legit striker and has been in many wars. Great strikers like Hoost or Le Banner got knocked out too but that doesn't make them bad strikers, they're elite

    Overeem clearly had no respect for Bigfoot, but he absolutely put it on Browne. That was an amazing comeback on Browne's part.

    People have forgotten that Browne was a legit contender before he hooked up with Ronda and Edmond. He made it all the way to a title eliminator against Werdum. I was actually a fan of his before his career nosedived.

    Eh, not a fluke. Overeem is always getting knocked out by inferior fighters.

    I'd have to agree with the OP in someways.

    I think most fans were pumped when Ubereem was rumored to have signed with the UFC and his debut win over Brock Lesnar was just flawless. Then he popped in 2012 and came back to a string of losses to journeymen fighters who he should've beat.

    He *reinvented* himself by getting on his bicycle to disengage from danger and thus Ecoreem was born. To see a guy of his stature resort to this was legit disappointing to me.

    Overeem's glorious comeback career to get a title shot would've never ever happened in any other division minus heavyweight in it's current state.

    Regardless Overeem is a legend. The dude has an insane heart to keep on pushing through all his hard losses in his career.

    Thank you. We only saw Ubereem ONCE in the UFC.

    And Strikeforce. And Dream. Ubereem had no issues with failing drug tests there...

    Not a world beater, but crafty and capable of beating just about anybody on the right night.
    Dude has been trading wins and losses for over a decade now .

    This fight was after he failed a drug test, he wasn't juiced here.

    Also he's regarded as a glass cannon. He could beat anyone in the division, and also lost to anyone.
