Did anyone else watch the K1 World Grand Prix last night (12-5) I just finished it aftering having PVR'd it.
Overeem is now the tournament champion. He TKO'd Peter Aerts in the final fight in brutal fashion. Peter Aerts was rocky like in his fight against Semmy Schilt. But he ran into a beast in Overeem in the finals.
I'd love to see how Overeem would match up against Cain or JDS. Or Fedor obviously. His problem in the past was always his gas tank, but now that he's fighting at his actual weight opposed to cutting huge amounts to fight at 205 that doesn't seem to be a problem anymore. He's obviously an amazing striker and he's got a very solid ground game. He's also allowed to use knees in the clinch in MMA which he is no longer allowed to do in K1 (can with 1 hand clinch). If that knee hits someone flush they're going to be done doesn't matter how strong their chin is.
