“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”, Overeem responded, “I’m going to f*cking destroy you.” Needless to say, these guys didn’t like each other before Saturday and they probably still don’t like each other now.However, as for that whole “f*cking destroy you” thing, obviously that didn’t work out very well for Overeem, in case you weren’t with us for the live discussion. Instead, Silva did the destroying, as he simply bashed Overeem’s face with right hand after right hand until he was a puddle of elevated testosterone on the mat.

Antonio Bigfoot Silva KO’s Alistair Overeem At UFC 156 (GIF)

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...

UFC 156 Moment in Violence: 'Bigfoot' exposed 'The Reem'

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...

UFC 156: Aldo wins, Overeem KO'd

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...

UFC 156: Brazillians win the night, Overeem the biggest loser.

What a weekend for sports.  Phil Mickelson just missed a 59 and won his event start to finish.  There was a minor sporting event in New Orleans dealing with the Ravens and the 49ers.  And an absolutely fantastic card showed on Saturday night as UFC 156 put on a great show.  It was one of the evenings where the Brazilians carried the night, winning most if not all of the highly...

Dana White Disappointed with Blackzilians at UFC 156

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...
