It's not an MMA fight but it's making the rounds and it's definitely worth posting for you to have a look at. The fight starts at the 1:03 mark. The first big overhand right from Overeem lands at the 1:48 mark. The second at the 2:30 mark. Final shot to end it comes at the 3:08 mark. A couple of things make themselves clear watching this video.
- Alistair Overeem is a very good striker with an insane amount of power. How Edwards gets back up after the second overhand right is beyond me, even with the standing 8 count. It sounded like a gunshot.
- This makes me love the rules in MMA so much more. If a guy went down like that after the second shot, the fight would be over. They wouldn't let him recover so he can continue taking a beating. As good as Overeem is, he would have ended it after the first big shot. Edwards taking all that unnecessary punishment will affect him later in life and that's unfortunate.
- At the 2:08 mark, Overeem seemingly forgets for a second that it's a K-1 fight and not MMA and looks for a Thai clinch. The big goofy gloves get in the way and he quickly realizes what he's doing but it's a funny moment.
- I really wish Alistair fought in the UFC. Hell, I really wish he fought in Strikeforce.
