Post by fka on Sat Sep 10, 2016 3:25 pm

Recently overeem came out and said ge thought fedor was not the GOAR.Today i read something asking the question if he beats miocic and gets the hw title does he become the GOAT?

id like to see everyones thoughts.

No way in hell is overeem #1 i voted top 5

Fedor and big nog hold 1-2

Overeem lost to antonio silva,ben rothwell,and travis browne in ufc.His win over lesnar he cheated.

Overeem is a piece of shit talking bad about Fedor and shilling the UFC. I liked him until that. I hope his glass is shattered into a 1000 pieces.

No, Fedor is but Reem would be top 5 or so.

I think MMAFighting is asking this. My opinion is no. Overeem is a long way to go to be the Heavyweight GOAT. His Strikeforce and DREAM title reigns were weak as he only defended the SF belt once and that was two and a half years after he won it. He never fought for DREAM after winning their belt so he never successfully defended it. Fedor won PRIDE's World Title and the WAMMA belt along with the 2004 PRIDE Heavyweight Grand Prix. Fedor also defended both belts against top 10 fighters and never lost either one.

MMA is marathon not one race, you win some you lose some but what separates  the best is consistency to stay or return on top.
Did Overrem won K-1 GP? Yes. Is that huge? Yes, and that makes him great but he is not G.O.A.T of K-1 because he did not won it 4 times like Hoost etc.

Overeem is fighter who can beat anyone on right night but consistency is problem. He will maybe beat Miocic one night but other night will lose to Bigfoot. Some fighters are like that. Randleman(R.I.P) was one of those fighters who could come and beat anybody at right night but he had many holes in game like ground game and would not be able to be guy who rules division and never lose. Some fighters styles work better against some types of fighters, luck, confidence etc. it all has effect and only the best can stay on top for longer time and Overeem imo is not guy who can stay on top but fighter that goes up and down.


btw I think Overeem will win by KO in 3 round and I will explain why.
Miocic is now too confident while Overeem will be patient and all of experience will work for him + Miocic fights worse against big guys (Struve).

that being said Cain (if he does not get injured again) will take his belt back.

Same here, sort of.  I've always had and love/hate relationship with him.  He is a good fighter but sometimes he gets way too cocky.  And yeah, his recent anti-Fedor and Pride comments didn't make me want to root for him against Miocic.  If Overeem does win the belt tonight, I don't think he keeps it long.

But no, he isn't GOAT. His Strikeforce and Dream title were next to meaningless. He has lost 14 fights, and his years of heavy PED use disqualify him from even being in the running. Even though he has been inconsistent, he has beat a lot of good guys (even if he was on PEDs for some of those) so I would probably have him around 6 or 7 right now, all time. If he wins tonight, maybe 4 or 5.

Hes definitely a top HW right now and probably even in the past 2 years or more but to think he'd be considered the goat is truly laughable considering his pattern of winning a couple fights and then getting brutally ko'd is notorious.

Another important point to make is that Overeem for most of his career has competed as a lhw,even if he wins the UFC title tonight that doesn't hold that much weight in terms of goat talks because tbh that belt is never held any longer than 2 title defences before there's a new title holder and not only that the UFC hw belt has been held by a who's who of the hw division over the years.

^Amen. Who gets KO'd from the guard? Especially when he wasn't even rocked when he got taken down.

Well, he needs to bullshit himself somehow after he talked a lot of shit on Fedor. He wishes he could get half the achievements of Fedor.

I knew REEM was done once they busted him for TRT. The TRT made him gas but it did improve his chin a little. After that he beat HW's that just suck for a title shot. KO'd stiff by Rothwell then beat fat nelson a rusty JDS and Arlovski.

He ate some brutal shots from the guard. I thought he had a better guard then that. His chin was wide open for Stipe to unleash. Was a very entertaining fight though and both guys had their moments. Stipe/Werdum II should be next now.

It was weird that Overeem came out to Pride music, after bashing Pride and saying the ufc was better. Perhaps he was trying to pander to everyone (ufc and Pride fans) so everyone would like him.

I also think the reason he bashed Fedor and was downplaying him and Pride was because if he had won the ufc belt he was going to argue he was GOAT now. Since he was devaluing Pride and saying the ufc is better, his HW belt would be more valuable than the ufc belt.

True and fedor is the goat i mean hell the haters have to compare him to today's fighters to try and slam his accomplishments they compare him to the likes of stipe cain jds and all that they hardly ever compare him to mir sylvia arlovski couture the guys that were also fighting during his prime .
