Former K1 kickboxing champ and Pride fighter Alistair Overeem stood toe to toe with former champ Junior “Cigano” dos Santos last night and delivered devastating results as the co-main event. Cigano was vocal about his fight against Overeem prior to the event and wasn’t excited about it then, while it makes a lot of sense now.
While a loss may seem like the end of the world for the former champ, a thin heavyweight division allows dos Santos another title run, similar to Mark Hunt and Andrei Arlovski.
Check out the highlights of the brutal contest above. Who should dos Anjos face after the loss? Does Overeem have a title shot in 2016 after his performance last night?
