Alistair Overeem has really turned his career around, this tournament should be a showcase for him in North America. He always had an immense amount of talent when he was much younger, but it took some time for him to finally realize his potential. I'm looking for him to run through the competition here, but Josh Barnett is the true wildcard in this tournament.

I don't get the Fedor dropping weight thing. I mean, an obviously past his prime HW moving down and f!ghting in an infinitely more talented division would surely be a success....

It's that or retire. He's just not physically strong enough to be an elite competitor at heavyweight anymore. He still packs a punch and would love to see him at LHW f!ghting guys his own size. He can always just pick and choose his f!ghts in Japan. I think he'll retire.

I don't think Fedor's ability is completely gone, he's still crafty and can throw hands

it's just that these mofos that have come into HW division the last 5 or so years are just behemoths...there's a difference between being 230 and f!ghting other 205-240lb f!ghters than being 230 and having to go up against someone 265

And since it doesn't look like there's going to be a Super HW division to keep the 250+ f!ghters in, he's gotta get out of the HW division

While I'd agree that he doesn't have the strength to contend with a guy like Silva, what people seem to forget is that even in his prime, it wasn't because he was ultra-strong or his technical prowess, but instead his hand speed and fluidity of his strikes. Which seemingly is all but gone. To suggest that he should drop down a weight class, where the competition is far more talented,i don't see how it would be a good move for him.

And as much as I enjoy him in football and basketball commentary, Gus Johnson continues to be horrendous while doing the Strikeforce broadcasts.

He would be better off f!ghting in Japan to be honest, where he can pick his f!ghts if he is to continue f!ghting. He's still a big draw there. I don't see him moving down to be honest. The game finally caught up to Fedor... what a run he had in Pride, though.

Dana is, and will forever be a d!ckhead.

Instead of acting as a supposed fan of MMA and either saying nothing, or giving props to one of the GOATS that is talking retirement he's still playing his "UFC or GTFO" card.

fedor wasnt always a bum but over the past 5 or 6 years he really doesnt have any notable wins over f!ghters in their primes. his last good win was over nog in 2005 and even that went to decision. m-1 will still sumhow bend SF over and get them to give fedor some ridiculous f!ght for them to co-promote.
