Alistair Overeem is going to fight Antonio Silva at UFC 156. Overeem is going to beat up Bigfoot in an ugly fashion. Should be a fun fight. Bigfoot is good at taking a beating and Overeem has some big power in his strikes. I'm really looking forward to this.

Overeem was originally going to fight the winner of Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez but he said he didn't want to wait for a fight so the UFC is giving him a fight with Bigfoot first before the shot at the title.

Poor Bigfoot. I don't think any non-champ has had a more brutal schedule his last four fights. Cormier - Cain - Browne - Overeem. Sheeeeit.

Anyway, I'm thinking it should be somewhat similar to the Werdum fight, except Bigfoot is a little stronger, a little slower and a lot less crafty. Not the right guy to exploit Overeem's weaknesses. OTOH would be pretty interesting to see him somehow get mount against the Reem. Who knows what happens, then...

Double Fisting





Two cool moves from UFC Macau – Bruce Leeroy throwing a Hadouken double punch and Dong Hyun Kim dropping Hulk Smash fists.

im becoming a fan of Leeroy really fast. Seen his last few fights on prelims this year and he's just fun to watch

as for Bigfoot and Reem...yikes. Doubt itll be the bloodbath his fight with Cain was but still has ugly written all over it

I hope Kim goes back on a winning streak so he gets that title shots at GSP. I think a couple of years he could have had a chance.

i'm actually kind of relieved because i like both guys and did not really want to see them beat the living hell out of each others' heads. that fight would have taken like a year or two off of each other's lives.

Bigfoot is going to be treated as gatekeeper and is going to be built up as a top heavyweight by the UFC due to his size, big head and ugly face.

Sucks that Carwin got injured. I was looking forward to seeing how many big power shots from Carwin Nelson could have took. He took some big shots from JDS in their fight. I think Carwin would have gassed half way through the first round and Nelson would have taken him down and submitted him late in the first round or early in the second round similar to his fight with Lesnar.

Miller's a better fight for Lauzon. Maynard was probably going to continuously take Lauzon down and lay on top of him to a decision win. Miller's submitable as proven by Nate and Lauzon's got a good enough ground game to submit him.

Want to add more people to the injured list of this year. Eddie Yagin suffered a head injury and is out of his fight with Dennis Siver. Nam Phan has stepped as a replacement for Yagin against Siver. Either way it should be a good fight. I think Siver should win this fight.

I haven't seen you guys talk about the revival of DREAM. I haven't been on here for a while, so not sure if you guys have talked about it or not. Either way, DREAM's revival is on a NYE show that Glory is co-promoting with them.

It will feature the Glory 4 Kickboxing Heavyweight Tournament and a bunch of a MMA fights. Robin van Roosmalen will be making his MMA debut on the event. Also Takaya, Baroni, Kawajiri, Kharitonov and Kitaoka will be fighting in MMA fights.

Schilt, Ghita, Saki, Zimmerman, Spong, Aerts, Bonjasky, Verhoeven, Le Banner, Guidon, Verlinden, Braddock Silva, Jamal Ben Saddik, Igor Jurkovic and Petrosyan are the rumored fighters in the Kickboxing tournament and in the Kickboxing fights.

The Glory fights are what is saving the card for me. The DREAM fights aren't as interesting as the Glory fights as there's not that many big name MMA fighters out there for them to put agains the DREAM fighters. The Kickboxing has pretty much all of the big name Kickboxers out there.

Holy Batman. I love Matt. Fucking-A!

Props to whoever made this happen.

Many are already giving the win to Roy. He is actually above Meathead's level.. but still.. I believe in Matt.
