I doubt that will upset Dana, once he's in the UFC, Dana will start promoting Overeem as one of the best HW's in MMA n if he's successful it will only help Dana
I was sure he was gonna say shogun was his toughest fight! I saw the post fight, poor reem was destroyed
thanks for posting this, i've been looking for it for ages!
overeem seems like a cool guy, really respectful and knows his stuff. speaks good english too!
i always wonder if the people who wear Che shirts know they are adervtising a mass murderer of women and children
"I have yet to find a single credible source pointing to a case where Che executed 'an innocent'. Those persons executed by Guevara or on his orders were condemned for the usual crimes punishable by death at times of war or in its aftermath: desertion, treason or crimes such as rape, torture or murder. I should add that my research spanned five years, and included anti-Castro Cubans among the Cuban-American exile community in Miami and elsewhere."
— Jon Lee Anderson, author of Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life
nice quote and true.There is a lot of propaganda in the world and most of it comes from the US. Same goes for Hugo too.
Overeem is a sound dude, and a BEAST... I really hope the fight with Fedor happens, that is my dream HW fight in all of MMA!
The Reem documentary was great too watched every episode.
Would love to see him in the UFC some day.
allistar is one of those people that the more you hear him and about him the more you like him
For me Reem looks like he is scared of Fedor that wuy he talkin about beating Werdum and gona truy to avoid the drug test
That was a great interview. Answered many questions.
I remember Overeem in Ireland for UFC 93. He literally begged Dana for a fight/fights in UFC. Dana couldn't believe the size of him (Neither could I) he was at least 30-40Lbs heavier than the last time Dana seen him in Pride back in '03-04 when Chuck finished him in R1.
I don't fancy chucks chances much now :D Overeem certainly makes for exciting HW matchups as he wants to stand, is extremely powerfull with great speed & has not much interest in ground fighting unless he has to mount.
I always liked him & it's basically the Dutch mentality. Very few Dutch fighters if any are c0cky. I can't name any Dutch fighters that I don't like. The greatest of all has To be Bas Rutten & that guy is loved the world over.
I hope Overeem proves me wrong & beats Fedor & defends his title a few more times or gets a UFC contract. But I don't see a UFC contract happening if Overeem wants to continue with K1 & defend his title. Dana's loss in my opinion because Overeem was not only a very successful Pride fighter too but now a K1 (Very prestigious MA title) Champion. If anything I think the UFC could do with a K1 Champion.
I always thought Schilt would return to the UFC after his success in K1. 4 times champion I think. Serious achievement. I always though Bonjasky would be the greatest ever but look at the trend!!!
18 K-1 GP finals & 15 have been Dutch Champions!!!!!! You know where not to go if you're looking for a bar fight :D
i think he would rape brock lesnar. the Strikeforce HW Division looks much better to me.
