    I got Rogers by KO, Overeem is going to crack under the pressure Rogers puts on him

  • MMA777

    Can’t say I like either of them, but I hope Overeem wins, so we could possibly see him against Fedor, because rematch Fedor vs Rogers is less likely to happen and is not as exciting as Fedor vs Overeem fight in my opinion. Anyhow, this is going to be a fun fight, if someone doesn’t get KNOCKED THE F. OUT in the first two rounds, it’s going to be very interesting to see their cardio and a ground game.

  • BlueClearSky

    I would see Overeem TKO Rogers and fight Fedor

  • Kackvogel
