Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

‘The Reem’ Part II, Episode 6: Alistair Invades California


In the latest episode of Alistair’s Overeem‘s web documentary “The Reem,” our hero takes a little business trip to Los Angeles and Las Vegas to see if America might be a good place to live someday. By the time he leaves, he has starred in a music video, met porn legend Ron Jeremy, beat up Antoni Hardonk for old time’s sake, watched two of his Golden Glory teammates kick ass at the first Muay Thai Premiere League event, bought a new suit, and signed a UFC contract to fight Brock Lesnar. That’s what you call efficiency. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

I think Brock will get him to the ground and finish it violently

@humper- i respect your opinion however heres a few things to consider. will brock still be around 280 lbs, because diverticulitis really affects his weight, and makes him lose weight, so it will be interesting to see how this recent flair up will affect him, so they might be closer in size than you realize. as warbong said,the reems kness will play a factor, it wont be easy for brock to get anywhere near him because if he ties up with him, the reems clinch game might be far superior to brocks, and he can catch him with a knee, especially if brocks shooting for a take down. and we all know brock doesnt like to get hit.. and im not sure who has the reach advantage here but i wouldnt be surprised if alistair has the reach advantage. i wouldnt be surprised if this looked a lot like the werdum fight where werdum was scared to engage with him

@humperdinkal- you and everyone else know's Lesnar's gonna shoot for a takedown 'cause you and everyone else knows he isn't gonna want to stand with Overeem...i'm thinking Overeem's answer for that will be his big bad knees.

as a mostly casual fan i can't wait to see this one.

The real question is: could Overeem carry the whole Cage Potato writing staff hanging from his arm? ;)

Just noticed-Funny as hell-UFC headquarters, Overeem walked by a big ass picture of the man that knocked his ass out-Good Old Chuck Liddell-Must bring back some memories heh Overeem!

The issue with Lesnar/Overeem fight is while Overem is clearly the more experienced, technical fighter(ground game, striking)he is lacking the one fundamental thing that makes fighters like Lesnar win-In this case, I can't believe it, but Overeem is the smaller of the two and no where near the wrestler that is needed to take Lesnar down. Lesnar on the other hand, will use his strength, and dominating wrestling to capitalize on a nice, healthy boring, lunch box win. this fight is a horrible one IMO in actuality for Overeem. How does Overeem plan to stand for even five seconds without being taken down? He ain't no cain Valesquez and he doesn't have the punching ability, or wrestling as a Shane Carwin. I think Overeem is in for a rude awakening. Horrible match up, especially for a first UFC fight for the Reem. Lesnar, not a MMA artist. However, his size and wrestling will utterly dominate and neutralize Overeems stand up and submission game. I may be crazy for thinking this, but lesnar will sit on him for a good three rounds, decision win.
Because Lesnar is beyond the size of what a human's head and body should be, he has beaten some very technical opponents by simply using his wrestling and weight to hold them down. I don't think he'll be able to get alot of punches in on Overeem, but he will be using his wrestling,to move around and keep Overeem from getting up. If by chance, which probably will occur three, four, five, six times throughout the fight, the ref stands them back up, within two seconds, lesnar will shoot in, taking Overeem down at will. this is the one fight, where Overeem is outclassed in terms of strength, and size.
While Lesnar is the stronger of the two, for lunchbox hands, his punches are no where near as powerful as they look. This is the one area in terms of power Overeem has over him. the question mark is will h e be able to get in some punches, elbows, knees to stun Lesnar, knock him down, and go in for the submission?? Lesnar neck is the size of Tito Ortiz's head! Explain someone, how Overeem has a chance in this match??
While I am not saying 100% Lesnar is going to take this fight, I'm interested in hearing(open to criticism too:) how Overeem could capitalize in this fight?

Me too, I think that should be the one on Fox. At least the commoners would have a better chance at knowing who they are.
