MMA Video Tribute: Alistair Overeem’s 10 Greatest Knockouts

(Don’t feel bad, Todd — that’s still 18 more seconds than we would have lasted.)

After four years of whipping heavyweights around the world, Alistair Overeem has finally signed with the UFC, and will fight Brock Lesnar on December 30th. (*Pause for happy-dance*) Though Overeem has more submission victories on his MMA record than knockouts (19 compared to 14), the Demolition Man has become infamous for the destructive power of his fists and knees — which he’s also showcased to brutal effect during his parallel career in K-1. So in honor of his new gig as a UFC fighter, we decided to rank our ten favorite Alistair Overeem knockouts of all time. Enjoy, and let us know your personal favorite in the comments section…

#10: Alistair Overeem vs. Lee Tae-Hyun
DREAM.4, 6/15/08

Overeem got an easy draw for his DREAM debut — South Korean ssireum wrestler Lee Tae-Hyun, who came into the fight with a 1-1 MMA record. Thirty-six seconds later, Tae-Hyun had a 1-2 record and a fresh concussion.

#9: Alistair Overeem vs. Brett Rogers
Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery, 5/15/10

Alistair Overeem vs Brett Rogers full fight by WorldofLifting

In his first Strikeforce heavyweight title defense in two-and-a-half years, Overeem completely outclassed the Grim, ragdolling him just part the one-minute mark, then smashing Rogers with ground-and-pound until the challenger crumbled.

#8: Alistair Overeem vs. Bazigit Atajev
PRIDE 24, 12/23/02

We had to include at least one knockout from Overeem’s days as an underfed light-heavyweight. In his second PRIDE appearance, Alistair faced off against Russian kickboxer Bazigit Atajev and kneed him in the guts so hard that he fell through the ropes. The stoppage came with just one second left in the final round.

#7: Alistair Overeem vs. Kazuyuki Fujita
Dynamite!! 2009, 12/31/09

Let’s get this out of the way — in the year 2009, Kazuyuki Fujita probably shouldn’t have been in the ring with Alistair Overeem. The famously strong-chinned wrestler ate a few shots that would have killed the average mortal, but in the end, Overeem’s left knee overcame “Ironhead” once and for all. Luckily, Fujita regained his senses and hasn’t competed since.

#6: Alistair Overeem vs. Dzevad Poturak
K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 in Yokohama, 4/3/10

A lesser-known gem from Overeem’s stint in K-1. During the 2010 World GP season opener, Overeem thoroughly dominated Bosnian competitor Dzevad Poturak before putting him dead-asleep with a knee to the dome.

    im a huge overeem fan, but the dude has the WORST habbit of clinching with 2 hands behind the head in K1 Fights, the last clip is a classic example. He gets so many warnings bout that and never see anything come of it
  2. Fedor Penn Says:

    Wed, 09/07/11 - 01:02

    @Mdollas I'm pretty sure that fight with Teixeira was before (and the reason for) the clinch rule was made in K-1.

    As far as the MMA fights go for Overeem, that's an impressive list of victims. I mean Buentello, Duffy, and Rogers. No wonder why everyone thinks he's so great.
  4. GistoftheFist Says:

    Wed, 09/07/11 - 01:31

    I think I found Buentello's weakness; that's the second time he's tapped to body-knees. :x

    Wed, 09/07/11 - 04:12

    @ Dead Cow- you took the words right out of my mouth. I think brock will give a good fight if he gets the chance. (I hate brock by the way)

    Seeing these knockouts makes me pine for Michael Schiavello, who was there for most of them and has the world's largest vocabulary when it comes to describing muscle dysmorphia. UFC needs to give him a guest spot for Lesnar v. Overeem; who else has a voice big enough to call that fight?
  8. dim mak Says:

    Wed, 09/07/11 - 04:53

    Haha--Dead Cow FTW!! Overeem looked like crap against Werdum, and I don't think he'll be able to stay off his back against Lesnar. I hate Brock as much as anyone, and I"d love to see Overeem connect with a vicious knee to his fat head when he come thundering in for a double-leg, but I don't see the Reem winning this one unless the diverculitis took a lot more out of the big flesh mound than we think.
  9. samsonhawk79 Says:

    Wed, 09/07/11 - 05:11

    I think even more devastating that the knees Teixeira took in that last clip was the giant tarantula on his head. C'mon man, that thing has to be like 20 lbs. of dead weight.

    I agree with most of you, Not a Brock fan at all but I would love to see Brock cave Ubereem's smug smile into a bloody pulp. Fuck Overeem, he wouldn't defend that Strikeforce belt for 3 years and then Drops out of the GP because competition got to tough. Glass Jaw, Plastic Heart
