Nogueira vs. Overeem II Wiki Update Wiki

Overeem opens with a right head kick that Nogueira easily avoids.  Overeem throws some low kicks and follows with back to back head kicks that Nogueira blocks.  The fighters continue to stand, with Overeem providing most of the action with kicks to the legs, body and head, most of which Nogueira avoids.  They clinch, where Overeem lands two knees to the body and Nogueira pulls guard in response.  After a lull, Overeem stands, inviting Nogueira back to his feet, where the Overeem kickboxing class continues.  Both men are throwing more now, but Overeem has the advantage with the kicks, buckling Nogueira with an outside leg kick.  A nice exchange of strikes with both men landing, although it appears Overeem gets the better of it, as Nogueira clinches, taking Overeem down and passing to half guard.  Overeem attempts a Kimura, but Nogueira pulls his arm out, allowing Overeem to regain full guard.  Nogueira begins to land some G'N'P and Overeem throws back from the bottom.  Nogueira manages to move to side control before Overeem gets his guard back without being threatened.  Nogueira stands and is caught with a couple upkicks, but doesn't seem any worse for wear before diving back into Overeems guard shortly before the round ends.

Round two begins and Overeem goes back to the kicking attack.  Nogueira moves forward and lands a few punches.  Both men are doing damage and looking tired.  Suddenly, Nogueira blasts Overeem with a left hand, putting Overeem on rubber legs.  Nogueira pushes forward, unloading with his hands, prompting Overeem's corner to throw in the towel.
