This is a goodun'.

My early pick is Blaydes by wrestle****. I think he's learned his lesson and won't try and stand and bang with experienced high class strikers after the Hunt fight.

Idk if Blaydes has necessarily learned a lesson yet but he can definitely wrestle-f*** a way to victory here.

wath a borring match-up! Overeem will run arround the cage to avoid the take down and if Blayde secure one he will sleep on top until the bell.

For me, Blaydes has to win this on the ground, but Reem is way better on the ground than Hunt, he's much more a threat on the feet than Hunt as he doesn't have to worry about grappling. Barring a standing KO which could happen with Reem's chin, I think it's his fight to lose, he can win anywhere. Blaydes is definitely a powerhouse, he's just kinda limited to wrestling with Reem.

Blaydes has all the tools to win here. He has power, good wrestling, cardio, and size. I just hope he doesn't maintain position and looks to posture up and open up with his ground and pound more.

I like Blaydes but Overeem's TDD is stout enough to keep Blaydes' from wrestle-******* him as he did to Hunto. Reem, UD

I think Overeem goes back on a slide that leads to retirement.

Blaydes by finish from the top.

blaydes has passed some puncher tests and i think he's capable of taking reem down consistently, just a question of how he handles kicks and knees from alistair.

Reem looked horrible last night. I think he hurt his keg early in the fight, though.

I hope he can get his keg fixed, otherwise he might have to buy a new one.

How many times has Reem been KOed from guard now? Can anyone count that high?

I know he has been cracked a few times in guard. Rua got him from guard. Stipe and Curtis have got him too. The crazy part is he has such an offensive guard that I wonder if he doesn't neglect striking defense and posture. Maybe it's one of those things. Some guys just can't defend a single, but they can stop any double.
