UFC 203: STIPE MIOCIC vs ALISTAIR OVEREEM Fight Video
Prediction: This is a bit complicated. While Overeem has hit a nice little stride here, he continues to hunt that one single KO killshot to win fights. On the other hand, Miocic has great combinations and timing, plus he’s probably the most dynamic all-around athlete in the heavyweight division. Overeem’s defense has gotten better, but I still can’t trust it. Sure, dos Santos is probably the still the one of the best boxers in his division (if not the best), and Overeem fought extra smart against him as well as against Arlovski - another feared striker that has good boxing offense. To replicate that aspect of those performances in this bout will be interesting, but mixing the boxing with wrestling and excellent cardio, I have to go with Miocic here. I don’t see Overeem doing well with the speed and Miocic pushing the pace and controlling the range as well as where the fight takes place. Stipe Miocic by KO/TKO.
