It seems a lot of people believe that Junior Dos Santos is gong to tear through Alistair Overeem with ease. I,on the otherhand, think that Overeem has the experience and skill to take this match. He also has more horse in him than a glue factory.
If Overeem can use leg kicks to keep the fight to a distance he can ware down JDS's legs and tire him out. Reem has more experience in kickboxing and mma overall. He finished all but two of his opponents. If he could get the fight to the ground he has a better BJJ background and finished most of his fights with submissions.
There is a significant size advantage for Overeem in this fight. I was very confused when Big Nog said that Overeem has never beat somebody as big as Dos Santos. He dominated Brock Lesnar who is as big as they get, knocked out Badr Hari in the first, and whipped Brett Rogers around like a rag doll. If he can defend Dos Santos's attacks and put together some good combinations, there will be a new UFC HW champion.
