Maybe Uber should concentrate on body shots...if you can't knock a man out just temporarily paralyse him with heavy liver shots. It's well within Alastair's capability.
    Overeem will handle Rothwell. Rothwell should just try and survive the first round.. then again Overeem may just go half speed and pace himself until the latter rounds before he turns it on. It's hard to say but this fight really has nothing huge to gain for Alistair, but everything to lose. He said he wants the JDS fight, but I think he needs 1 more top level opponent after Rothwell before he tries to take on Dos Santos. That fight potential has me drooling.. Just depends on what Overeem shows up.

    He pisses hot again and I'm done with him tho..I'd like to think he's got his head on straight and is making a run the right way and the natural way. He did just join Jackson MMA and got rid of the Blackzillian camp, I'm kinda excited at the possibilities for him with Team Jackson.
    "I leave this as a declaration of intent, so no one will get confused. 1: Si vis pacum para bellum. Latin. If you want peace, prepare for war. 2: Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. 3: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacies, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance. Punishment "

    Definitely agree that Overeem should be able to beat Rothwell, and he should be able to beat him handily. That said, Alistair's chin is just not on par with other elite heavyweights e.g Junior, Travis, Cain and Fabricio. Granted every fighter I just named has either a K.O or T.K.O loss on there record, but at the same time I think it would be ridiculous to say any of them can't take a punch, but with Overeem, I'm not so sure.
