4. Alistair Overeem Needs To Retire Too

Evans and Overeem were ignominiously placed on UFC 225’s undercard to make room on the main card for the likes of CM Punk, which enraged fight fans.

But between the three, only Punk managed to avoid getting knocked out or finished at UFC 225.

Overeem returned from an absolutely vicious knockout at the hands of Francis Ngannou and was finished yet again with strikes against Curtis Blaydes.

Blaydes used brutal elbows to knock Overeem out in the third round, and the result of this fight has serious implications for both men’s careers. While Overeem certainly needs to consider retiring after a long and storied career, Blaydes moved from prospect to contender.

Both former Blackzillian teammates have been losing fights left and right, and lately, their losses haven’t even been competitive. Time for Overeem to join Rashad Evans in retirement.
