Here is the play-by-play from Overeem vs. Silva:
Overeem charges the center of the Octagon. He lands a left hook to the body and goes in for the clinch. Overeem connects on an overhand right and knee to the midsection. Silva eating knees to the legs while they clinch against the fence. They separate and Silva throws a kick to the midsection, Overeem answers with a flurry and knee to the midsection. Overeem’s hands are down, he doesn’t seem fazed with Silva’s hands. The Dutchman cliches him against the cage again. Overeem nails him with an uppercut.
5thRound scored it: Overeem, 10-9.
Big leg kick by Bigfoot, but Overeem answers with a right hand. Oveereem gets a body lock and tosses him to the mat, landing in side control. Silva unloads a couple of nice elbows to the dome from off his back. Overeem working some good ground-and-pound. You can hear the thuds from Overeem’s punches throughout the arena. Silva has done nothing offensively in 10 minutes. They get to their feet and Silva finally scores his first significant strikes of the night.
5thRound scored it: Overeem, 10-9.
Silva comes out like a house on fire. He’s giving Overeem the business. Countless vicious punches to the dome and Overeem drops like a sack of potatoes. Game. Set. Match, Silva. What a rally! Silva circled back to talk smack over a battered Overeem. Referee Herb Dean had to pull him away.

BEST OF MAXIM
The fight looked pretty even going into the last round between Antonio Bigfoot Silva and Alistair Overeem. Silva had no intentions of letting the judges take this fight into their own hands. Silva knocked the crap out of Overeem in round 4 and scored the KO victory. Overeem's head looked like a punching bag, and I couldn't believe how long he kept standing up and taking...
Alistair Overeem certainly talked the talk leading up to Saturday’s shootout against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (Pictured), and for the opening two rounds “The Demolition Man” walked the walk.
Unfortunately for Overeem, the third frame came rolling around and Bigfoot blitzed him with a barrage of bombs that abruptly put an end to his night. Not to mention his shot at the...
The Reem is back ladies and gentleman. This fight is brought to you by corn nuts. Not to be confused with horse meat.

“I’m going to f*cking destroy him. That’s what I’m going to do.”Those were the words that Alistair Overeem said to UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani regarding Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva prior to their fight at this past Saturday’s UFC 156 event in Las Vegas. To add to that sentiment, when Silva warned Overeem during their stare-down that he “better start showing respect”...
My partner in crime and @SoundandFuryMMA co-host Dan Rose made a great point during our first podcast this past Friday. He mentioned names like Tony Sylvester, James Thompson, Kazuyuki Fujita, Todd Duffee. He even made light of Reem's unimpressive win over a top guys like Werdum, and a Brock Lesnar who had just came of what ended up essentially being MMA career ending diverticulitis...
As expected, Alistair Overeem (Pictured) will find himself in the exact same place he was one year ago if he beats Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva on Saturday. UFC president Dana White confirmed during Thursday’s media gathering that the former Strikeforce heavyweight champ will get first dibs at Cain Velasquez’s crown if he’s victorious at UFC 156.
White didn’t say what would...
The disappointment that was the match between Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is exactly what was needed prior to the fierce showdown that was Aldo vs. Edgar.
Don't confuse this. Ideally all of the fights at UFC 156 would have been outstanding. However, having a letdown (a unanimous decision won by "Little Nog") just before the UFC Featherweight Title bout...

No fight team had more on the line at UFC 156 than the talented Blackzilians. The squad’s top two superstars were on display: Alistair Overeem (Pictured) returned from a nine-month steroid suspension would have earned a shot at Cain Velasquez’s heavyweight crown with a win over Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, while Rashad Evans could have found himself in a tango with middleweight...
