I thought for a second it was Overeem vs Gokhan Saki and was excited for the rematch from kickboxing. Lost my excitement now.

Overeem vs Sakai is a very underwhelming main event, from what I remember from Sakai in Bellator, he's just a big tall fat ass. I never seent that man do anything amazing as a HW in MMA, heavyweight is just so low in quality. 

Overeem is a legend, I could never get knocked out that many times and not **** myself when entering the cage. His will and desire to win, even when defeated by brutal knockout losses is very admirable.

@frontkick 

Doesn't Sakai being a underwhelming fighter (big tall fat ass in your words) alsomalso it a potentially exciting main event? That makes him a perfect canvas for Overeem to remind everyone why we love watching him. I expect Sakai to catch some knees to the body and become a highlight for the Reem.

Overeem vs. Sakai
Alistair Overeem, SUB, R2
Reem will get the submission finish. I'll be surprised if Sakai finished my pick.

Pereira vs. Imadaev
Zelim Imadaev, DEC
Imadaev the Dagestani will out work and. out pace the flashy Brazilian to a decision. The Brazilian is not a professional he just has some tricks.

Montaño vs. Avila
Julia Avila, TKO, R1
Avila is pretty good. Good night Nicco.

Bueno Silva vs. Borella
Mayra Bueno Silva, TKO, R3
Who honestly gives a **** besides they're parents? Get these ******* the **** out of here.

Fabiński vs. Muniz
André Muniz, TKO, R1
Just a guess here

Simón vs. Kelleher
Brian Kelleher, DEC
I'm ******* with the Long Island underdog here. Home town.

Hunter Azure, TKO, R2
Azure pretty good well rounded.

Montana De La Rosa, DEC
Montana better than her husband 💯💯

Overeem vs. Sakai
Alistair Overeem, TKO, R4
Say what you want about Overeem, but it's amazing that at his age (40 years old !), and after such a long decorated career both in kickboxing (10-4 with wins over legends like Badr Hari, Peter Aerts, Gokhan Saki, Tyrone Spong !!!) and MMA (46-18, with wins over Werdum, Belfort, Lesnar, Hunt, Frank Mir, Cigano, Arlovski...), he's still highly competitive at the very top of the sport. His chin is gone, he isn't as powerful as he was before, but he adapted his style very well lately. Hell, he almost won the belt against Miocic a few years ago, and if he wins two or three more fights (a matchup against Lewis would be fascinating), he could absolutely compete for the belt again. What a legendary career.

Pereira vs. Imadaev
Michel Pereira, TKO, R1
Pereira is fun to watch in the first round, that he becomes boring to watch in the third round. If there is a third round.

I agree. Hes not a Canadian fighter tho we get cut after 2 fights. I do assume they will release him if he loses this one though

Overeem is an unrecognized candidate for the greatest combat athlete of all time. And The only feather not in his cap is a UFC title. If you don’t think he’s in the top 5 most decorated combat athletes of all time, well then you’re wrong.
