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 surgery. Alistair Overeem's 12-fight unbeaten streak since 2007 had the potential to become one of the greatest runs of all-time if he could've beaten Bigfoot and followed by capturing the UFC Heavyweight title. After what we saw last night though, it appears that maybe Reem is nothing but a can crusher with incredible kickboxing chops. A man that beyond 5 minutes is really a threat to no one but himself. "When he punch, he's a lion. But when I punch him, hes a cat. " - Bigfoot on Overeem post-fight Bigfoot Silva didn't take the first two rounds off by accident. It was by design. He spoke post-fight about how Overeem had no heart, no cardio. On the surface it looked like Overeem was toying with the giant for the first two rounds. Putting his hands down, goating him into a stand and bang affair early on. Bigfoot kept to the game plan. He kept his hands up. He let Overeem make a fool of himself. Then when that bell signaled the final round, he came out guns blazing, knocking out Overeem in under 30 seconds.  The question is whether or not Overeem can come back from a loss like this and still earn a title shot in the UFC. Or has he been fully exposed to the point where he'll have to go back overseas to crush cans for a living? Only time will tell.   Video: Highlights: UFC 156: Silva - Overeem photo via - msn.foxsports
