    Can't wait to see Junior knock Overeem's lights out sooner or later.

    I still think Overeem is the worst matchup for JDS at HW unless he employs his unseen BJJ.

    Granted, if Overeem plods forward with his chin up he's finished. However, I would still say that the things JDS attempts from the outside land him firmly in range for a knee and counter from someone with the clinch striking of Overeem. JDS makes a TON of mistakes in his technique and defense that are covered up by his handspeed vs. lesser strikers.

    Agreed. It is a striking battle I would love to see.

    You know how Dana is; this week he calls you a pussy, next week he calls you the greatest fighter of all time.

    Oh come on. You make it sound like Dana bases what comes out of his mouth on potential profit margins.

    That and his own insecurity-driven need to play the "I've got the biggest and best everything so if you disagree with me you're a useless failure at life so na-na-na boo-boo" game.
