    Werdum's offensive striking is improving but his defense still has holes and he still backs up in a straight line when attacked. The Nog fight showed those holes too IMO. I think JDS will remain a terrible stylistic matchup for him. But the Cain fight would be fireworks.

    I'd take Werdum over almost any heavyweight right now. I wouldn't be able to pick if/when he faces Cain, JDS, Cormier and Barnett.

    As for Overeem, I don't think he'll beat Mir. He'll fade and be cut after the fight. And he could be the next Bellator heavyweight champion.

    Yea, I like that he is still working on improving his game. His hands could use more work, but his kicks and muay thai have been looking good lately

    Or more likely, AO can't ragdoll him when he goes for the TD so Werdum digs in and AO gets frustrated/tired and falls face first into a guillotine.

    OK, OK, if they fought 2000 times, Werdum would win about 1600 of them.

    Without the juice, I think AO doesn't have the power to manhandle Werdum. Without that threat, Werdum can commit more and mix in setting up legitimate power shots as well as TD attempts. AO's chin is suspect enough for Werdum to knock him out.

    It can be said it has but Nelson, Russow, and old Nog ain't great strikers. I wanna see him against Miocic, Barnett, mir or even Browne before he gets a shot.

    He was landing more but they were more pitter patter type combos so he could set up the td. Overeem hit him less but with some hard shots and also threw him around a bit.

    Overeem was too worried of the td to keep his hands up.
