Overeem got KTFO
I was hoping for more from this foo but he did look good early on. And he definitely gassed out ala Shane Carwin vs. Brock after trying to put Browne away early. Overeem still looks stiff and robotic with all that muscle and he's been averaging 4.5 fights per year over the past 14 years so he has a lot of wear and tear. I think he needs a break or should retire. I liked Browne's quote during the post fight, "My mind was all there but those knees were shutting my body down."
Browne calling out Cain :)
As a fan of Browne because of the home town bias, I think Cain would KO or TKO Browne. Not trying to take credit from Browne, but I also think that fight had a lot to do with Overeems mistakes too. You'd think after being a professional kick boxer he would check those kicks, nope just continued ignoring them leaving himself open. I also don't think Browne could give Cain any chances like he did Overeem, hes very lucky Overeem blew his load after that flurry, Cain won't do the same.
And how about my boy Urijah Faber, that was some nasty GnP to Iuri, also a good job grappling. I thought for sure Faber would get caught in a RNC. If he fought like that vs. Cruz he would be champ again.
And I knew Chael was gonna smother, sure that's his game and all, and Rua should've been more prepared for it.
