    Default Antonio Silva to Alistair Overeem: 'This Is Not Kickboxing

    Antonio Silva to Alistair Overeem: 'This Is Not Kickboxing' | Bleacher Report

    In the meantime, Silva seems to believe his richer, more multidisciplinary training and competition background could make the difference against Overeem, who rose to fame as a kickboxer.

    "He’s a tough guy and he’s got great striking. But this is not kickboxing," Silva said Monday during a UFC media conference call covered by Bleacher Report. "This is not K-1. This is MMA."

    The two heavyweight sluggers face off near the top of the ultra-stacked UFC 156 main card, going down Feb. 2 from Las Vegas.
    Silva may be interested in a return engagement of his own, with heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, who welcomed Silva to the UFC with a bloody TKO in May. But Silva said Monday he's not worrying about that one, either—at least for now.

    "I don't care about the title shot now," Silva said. "My fight is with Overeem. I want to fight him. I waited for this fight for two years...After that, I will think about Cain Velasquez."

    Bigfoot is fucked in this fight..He doesn't have anything on the Reem other then head size.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Overreem is a legit MMA fighter, and perhaps the best striker in the HW division. I say that because he's the only MMA HW to win a K1 Grand Prix, that's saying a hell of a lot. But if Big foot thinks he can sub him on the ground then more power to him, he still has to get him down first.....I don't see that happening. But in a HW fight, anything can happen. But I think Overreem stops him and moves on to fight Cain for the title.

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    Bigfoot does have decent takedowns and very good control and GNP once he gets it there... It would be nice to see AO's TDD get tested, but if it stays standing for any duration, Bigfoot gets Merked.

    Yes but how many of those are a standing guillotine vs. a substantially smaller fighter?

    7 or 8 I'd guess.

    That shit isnt flying on Bigfoot. Just sayin.

    Alistair Overeem says 'probably not' to continuing voluntary drug testing
    UFC 156's Alistair Overeem says 'probably not' to continuing voluntary drug testing - Bloody Elbow

    At Monday's UFC 156 media conference call, Alistair was asked if he planned to continue his own testing program now that he's licensed. Overeem responded:

    Well I did drug testing with my management. If it's necessary for me to do more drug testing I'll do that. If not, I'll probably not. It's something that I'll have to take up with my management.
