Re: StrikeForce "Heavy Artillery" on May15th

Overeem dominated via superior striking and overall superior skills.

The fight with Fedor-Overeem will be pretty exciting, Fedor hasn't fought someone like Overeem in quite some time. However, I have confidence that he will find a way to win, like he always does.

On a different note, was it just me or was Arloski's striking WORSE than the last time he fought? I thought he wanted to be a professional boxer, yet he stood flat footed, didn't really throw any good combinations and let Silva get the better of him throughout the fight.
Rogers was definitely off balance. I hope we get to see Fedor v. Overeem. I too think Fedor will find a way to win. No one can say that Overeem is not a threat.
