Alistair Overeem Wins, but With Disappointment
MMA fans saw a very good fighter, certainly. But a world beater. Will Alistair Overeem have another chance to prove that he is best MMA heavyweight fighter?
Last Saturday night, MMA fans tuned in to Showtime to see Alistair Overeem swinging out strikes and throwing vicious knees and clinches. People were excited to see him extinguishing Fabricio Werdum at the Heavyweight Grand Prix. However, what the audience saw was a cautious Demolition Man who dodged many of Fabricio Werdum’s traps on the ground.
Although Alistair Overeem won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix last June 18 via unanimous decision, he stepped out of the cage in Dallas with a missed opportunity. He was not able to prove the he is the very best. He has grown and looked anything but unbeatable. He looked like the best fighting machine, that no one can outlast him for 15 minutes inside the cage. And though the fans certainly saw a very good fighter, it was not the world beater.
With his current victory, Alistair Overeem will face Antonio Silva in what is anticipated to be a tremendous fight. With their most recent bouts, who do you think will win the match?View Article Source »
