    Dos Santos, First Round Knocc Out, you heard it here first bitches

  2. danielrchargers says:

    Overeem, First Round Knocc Out, your read it here first Sandwiches.

  3. true mma says:

    JDS knocks out that overrated, can make it at LHW, blame it on my little crying baby fool.

  4. Xaninho says:

    I really think Overeem has a good chance of taking that belt. It won’t go the full 5 rounds is one thing that’s certain.

  5. Bennyboy says:

    Overeem got a glass chin its not gonna take much for JDS to knock him out

    • Xaninho says:

      pff another one…he was (T)KO’d only 6 times in 47 fights! Randy Couture got (T)KO’d 6 times in just 30 fights, does he have a glass jaw too?

      JDS can take anyone out, except Roy Nelson, but he’s a freak of nature.

  6. slacker says:

    JDS is going to lose.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      This fight will be decided by which fighter lands the first big shot. I like both these guys the same so i’m going to be sad fro whoever loses. Now if this was Overeem or JDS vs Cain and his Brown pride i would be of course rooting against cain. Besides teh fact i cannot stand AKA even though the person who I hate the most is no longer there in one arragant bastard by the name of Dave “FAKE JITS” Camarillo. I can’t believe in 6 years plus of training Jon Fitch he hasn’t been able to teach him any submissions. Because of coaches like Camirillo we have to endure the boring ass “FITCHING” of one JON “lay n pray” FITCH. how he calls himself a blackbelt i will never understand. I think Fitch got his jits blackbelt out of a cereal box

  7. true mma says:

    Sorry Overeem your run ends here.
