SPOILERS:Overeem(weighted in at 242) vs Poturak

Postby Vlimmen » Apr 3. 2010, 04:08

Alistair Overeem looked like a wrecking machine in the K-1 ring once again on Saturday, knocking out Dzevad Poturak in the first round at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 in Yokohama.

The knockout blow was a right knee to the jaw, but it was preceded by some good technical boxing on Overeem's part. The much smaller Poturak landed a few punches that didn't do any damage, while Overeem landed powerful punches throughout the first round, including a right hook that knocked Poturak down.

Overeem keeps a frenetic pace, and this was his sixth kickboxing match in the last 15 months -- a period during which he also found time for three MMA fights. Now he's set to return to mixed martial arts and defend his Strikeforce heavyweight title against Brett Rogers on May 15.

It's worth noting that while the muscular Overeem has mostly been defeating smaller men over the last couple of years, he was listed at 242 pounds for this fight and appears to have lost a little weight since 2009, when he typically weighed in at more than 250 pounds. He'll be the smaller man in the cage against Rogers, and that's something he's unaccustomed to.

What Overeem has grown accustomed to is bullying everyone who steps into the ring with him. That's certainly what he did to Poturak.


let the cycling talk begin :roll:

hes probably cycling of the roids to come in clean for the strikeforce drug test, so could maybe even see him come in lighter around 238ish

thats only 3% less than usual, this is the HW div, maybe he forgot to eat lunch before the weigh ins. Seriously my weight drops 5% after 2 hours of competitive basketball (i go from 180 to 171) ofcourse its back up to around 180 a few hours later but still, 3% isnt much

Overeem is a bit taller than Rogers and I think Overeem has a higher lean body mass.

BTW how will the endless Fedor discussion go on if Overeem completely smashes Rogers?

EDIT
Smashes him in R1, since Fedor smashed him in R2.
