i was kind of disappointed in this card after it happened to be honest. neither guy wanted to engage and overeem looked human. im now sure he will win the grand prix now. im going with Sergei Kharatonov as the GP winner.

Kharitonov? lulz

Overeem FTW, If he gets by Silva it'll be a piece of cake.

you must not be too familiar with Kharitonov or Josh Barnett. Sergei has great striking, maybe the best in the tournament besides Reem. i think hes the dark horse of the tournament and has a good shot at winning but Barnett is probably the favorite after Reem's performance on saturday. I mean the guy has solid striking and is the only submission wrestler in the tournament.
I think the farther the fight goes the more the fight favors the whomever fights Ubereem. I mean thats alot of muscle to feed oxygen too and he was looking pretty tired in the last round of his fight with Werdum. Hell Werdum was landing some solid counters and jabs at the end of the fight.
The only reason i want Reem to win though is i would like to see him fight JDS to see who the best HW striker is in the sport.
