Alistair Overeem has been filming an online documentary for the last few years and it has proven time and time again to be one of the best made MMA videos around. The latest instalment chronicles his training regiment as he prepares for his fight this weekend against Travis Browne. It also features an amazing segment [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
BOSTON -- When we last saw Alistair Overeem he was slumped on the ground, his body beaten, his mind scrambled, his opponent standing over him. The image of "Bigfoot" Silva being forcibly restrained by referee Herb Dean is one of the indelible moments of 2013, as much for what Silva did as for what Overeem did not do. In a matchup he was supposed to win, that he was owning...
TO THE FACE
Early on it looked like we were bearing witness to just another kickboxing clinic from the former multi-promotion Dutch fighting champion. Alistair Overeem put it on Travis Browne in the first round of the contest landing a smorgasbord of strikes on the proud Hawaiian. Browne ate everything Overeem threw at him. Punches, kicks, and knees with intentions of the unhealthy variety were...
Alistair Overeem has fallen a long way in the past year. Overeem began 2013 as the #1 contender in the Heavyweight division and today he’s seen himself fall out of the top 10 in all likelihood.
Travis Browne on the other hand is quickly climbing the heavy weight ranks and the 6’7″ brawler showed his ability to persevere through a rough start to the fight. Overeem had Browne...
Saturday is a statement fight for both Travis Browne and Alistair Overeem at UFC Fight Night . Aside from a loss to Antonio Silva that was partially due to a freak injury, Browne has never lost, yet he still flies under the radar. To his credit, he says he doesn't truly deserve attention as a contender until he beats a major name. He has his opportunity on Saturday when he fights...
Travis Browne (15-1-1) scored a surprising comeback win over Alistair Overeem (36-13) at UFC Fight Night 26 on Saturday with a sick front kick to the face. Browne was getting destroyed by Overeem early in the fight, taking a number of knees to the body and punches to the head. The fight was dangerously close […]
• Shogun Rua vs. Chael Sonnen
Dan Rose: Chael Sonnen by takedown, top control, ground and pound, rinse, repeat and finish to a unanimous decision victory. Won't be the most exciting main event, in fact, it will likely be the least entertaining fight on this entire card. Unless Sonnen gets cute and gets caught standing, which would be entertaining. Very much so. I want to...
This isn't just another free t.v. card. The stakes are high for this one. The fans know that. And most importantly the fighters know that. No one ever wants attention for the wrongs reasons. Sometimes not making weight just isn't an option.
The only issue with today's weigh in for Fight Night 26 in Boston was the scale, or the guy operating it. Other than that everything...
Most miserable part of fight week for these guys.
