Yeah Overeem will be the most overhyped fighter unless he gets stuck into his conditioning and comes back hard in his next couple of fights against respectable opponents. If he disappears or just fights no ones then there's no redemption. I personally think he was a better fighter before he got really massive. And just to throw it out there, GSP is overhyped in the stricter sense of the word 'hype'. No arguments he is the best getting around (in his weight at least) and a brilliant fighter. He just isn't very interesting to watch.

I agree I think Overeem needs to go out there and prove that he is back but I don't think that can happen unless he drops some weight or juices lol and GSP I don't think has been the same since being knoked out by Serra. I mean he even said it himself since then he didn't want to take shots like that I know no one does but he now just fights the way he does which is safe. I loved the old GSP who would go out and want to kill pople.

Overeem... his cardio is killing him. I'm thinking that even fighters in the lower weight class has a good chance of defeating him. :D

You probably are right, I mean as long as you do not get put away early you can beat him, Browne was getting manhandled by Overeem and was able to hold on and then TKO's him. Even big foot did the same. The plan against overeem will be let him punch himself out then just slap him in the face and he will go down.

100% agreed. DC is a monster who has deserved his hype there's no doubt about it. Urijah Hall is a perfect example of how mentally tough MMA is. Dude has excellent skills and he is super athletic. He just can't pull the trigger when it's game time. And Overeem yeah... God damn that is sad to see him go down like this. Then on the other hand if the juice was all that kept that dude winning it kinda spoils the previous achievements too so for sure he is over-hyped, IMO.

I do agree that DC is good but there is something about him I don't like. IDK if its his personality or what but I mean saying you are going to drop weight and beat JBJ. Does anyone actually think he would beat JBJ? I dont.

Lol I agree with most except BJ Penn. I mean Bj now a days yea he should fight at 155 not 170 because he has always had issues there but I do feel he was dominant during his prime. Everyone else on the list I agree with.

Who better than DC? DC is like a slightly shorter version of Cain Velasquez with less power shots and better wrestling IMO. I believe he has the best shot out of any LHW to beat JBJ because hes smart and will not let JBJ use his reach advantage. And JBJ has a pretty good wrestling game...but nowhere near as good as DC, who is an olympic wrestler. Will he absolutely defeat JBJ? No, but I'd give him just as good of a shot than any LHW out there now.

Uriah Hall had so much hype and it looks like he could be released by the UFC. Maybe they'll give him one last chance to prove himself.


the guy just isn't a fighter. he doesn't have that mentality. he'd probably be a great point-fighter in karate tournaments or something, but he just doesn't have the mental game to be an mma fighter at the top level.

It is sad becuase he has so much skill from what it looks like. I just think that he doesn't have it in him to want to punch someone in the face and want to "hurt" someone to win. Working in mental health myself I can say that it is such a huge part. People just sometimes can't have it on their Conscious that they hurt someone for money. Sad to see he seemed to have big things coming.

sadly I wanted Hall to do well but I just don't think he will get another chance. He already had two performances where he couldn't pull the trigger. I think if he can get the mental aspect down he will be able to be a true contender. sad part is we may never know.

He will get cut and just need to fight in smaller orgs and get more comfortable fighting. Ufc is no joke. You can lose one fight and be out of a job and that cal take a toll on a guy and his performance. So.e guys shine under pressure some guys don't and he is one of those guys. If you guy him space to do as he please he can do all type of stuff but one you get in his face he does cough.

yeah, i think that became pretty evident in his interviews/"confessions" during TUF. the guy has phenomenal talent and work ethic, but his mind just isn't made for it. a sports psychologist might help, but who knows how much.

I mean some fighters say that it helps them out like Cerronne but I don't know if it can help block out someones conscious.

That is true I didn't even think about him. It was what 25 fights in a row or something like that. Looks like it could just be the pressure of fighting in front of millions.

Yeah, the guy who used to be the HW champion of the world with KO wins over Velasquez, Werdum and Mir, the guy who came in on a losing streak and lost to Sean fucking McCorkle in his debut before going on a tear, and the guy who was a massive underdog in two of his most recent fights and still won by knockout are overhyped.

I don't think Dos Santos, Hunt are over hype. I think they earned the hype they got!

They have earned the hype

Hunt has got a huge heart, came into the UFC with 5 fight losing streak, refused to give up and won 4 of his 5 first fights in the octagon, respect

yea hunt in my mind has one of the biggest hearts I have seen becuase many would have quit after losing 5 straight and he passed on being paid for the rest of his contract and he came back and teared it up. He's cool in my book lol

Hunt is definitely not overhyped. maybe at some point in his career. ( I never believed the hype that he would be JDS ) however I did think he earned the title contender shot.
