The Reem a documentary following Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem
Alistair VS Cain would be an awesome match. They have to be 1 and 2 in the HWT division. I am a Fedor fan but with his loss and him getting old, he is no longer in the top 2. Brock has no stand-up and his cardio is very questionable. Carwin, his cardio is even worse than Brock's. I don't know how many more fights he is under contract for with Dream/Strikeforce but hopefully we will see him fight Barnett. Fedor and Werdum don't want to fight him and neither would stand a chance if they did. Barnett will lose to but I would rather see that fight than one with AO versus Fedor or Werdum. I hope that he then makes the jump to the UFC.
All of a sudden Brock has no Cardio and his stand up is no good? He beat beat everyone that ws put in front of him and became champion. Remember he lost against Cain Velasquez who is the best right now. Brock didnt lose against a nobody.
Brock has Stand-Up as you can see from his bout with Herring.
I cannot see Cain defeating Overeem, who's experience in MMA is incredible, a true Journeyman that has trained and fought all over the world, but he's also past his prime and if the UFC want his best, they need to sign him ASAP.
MMA Maniac, when you say Brock didn't lose against a nobody, are you refering to Cain or Mir?
Brock has great conditioning, but he really doesn't have good hands. He can hit very hard, but it is really just that one hit power.
MMA Maniac….correction he lost to Frank Mir and Cain just whipped his ass from start to finish. Also his stand up does suck, he just has power. Cain and Carwin exposed Brock.
overeem has not really beat anyone in the hw devision to give him the 1 or 2 spot, he might be that good but has not proved it. he lost to werdum before so i would not say he has no chance and overeem has a questionable chin so i could see fedor knocking him out, barnett would give him a great fight.
The odd thing about that is that Overeem who is the Strike Force HW Champion has challenged Fedor twice now, and twice Fedor has turned down the fight. Overeem cannot seem to get any of the Strike Force HW's to fight him, so he's been taking on Dream HW's.
If the Strike Force HW's continue to duck him, he'll need to make the jump to UFC. It's not really a Title when the other fighters in that division have the option of not competing for the belt.
Yes that's true, but Fedor's camp (as twisted as it is) would rather wait for Werdum to heal from an injury and face him in order to avenge his single defeat than face Overeem for the title. It's wrong in every way but it is what it is.
There are other good HW matchups for the Champion now in Strike Force, we just don't know what Coker is waiting for.
That is one of the really lame things about that league.
five + = 12
