    Too bad; that guy doesn’t even deserve to be on a ring with Aerts. That’d mean Aerts won’t, for the first time, be in the finals?

    Did you watch the fight?

    Overeem rag dolled him for 3 rds. It was a total ass whipping.

    Unfortunately yes, I’ve watched, and it truly saddens me. It’s just that Overeem will never be nowhere close to be the great kickboxer that Aerts is. Or used to be, in his prime, around ten years ago. That’s probably the beginning of the end of his career; and I wish that those who are his last opponents were top level.

    Taiei Kin got hit late, and quite hard, but to be taken out on a stretcher? Really? The punch was that hard? I’m dubious.

    Overeem may not be as good as a kickboxer, but considering the guy has an above average ground game he truly is a better all around fighter then Aerts ever was over ever will be.

    I agree with you Shotokai… it did look a little suspicious that he would stay down for that long after that hit. It was an entertaining fight up until then thou. Wish it had gone longer.

    Kin is a bad actor and he embarrassed himself with that horrible phony performance. Then the “we fight again” crap afterwards…it was truly pathetic.

    Robo-Overeem was anything but impressive, but he was fighting an old man. he had a syringe sticking out of his ass as he came in to the ring also, luckily his trainer saw it and pulled it out before the camera caught it.

    Starforsaken you make no sense at all. You say Overeem doesn’t belong in the same ring and that he will never be the kick boxer Aerts is or was, yet Alistair won a unanimous dec. Give him a little credit.
    As for you horror, it was only “vitamins” in the syringe.
    Last to you Alistair GET YOUR ASS BACK IN THE CAGE!.

    this was my 1st time watching K1 and i thought it was pretty good

    i liked the late punch KO

    i think that it would be Overeem vs Badr Hari in teh finals with Hari winning via 2nd KO

    I myself saw a bit of a ragdoll effect, but look at the guy. He’s big. Not Semmy Schilt big, but big enough.

    That’s the one I look forward too next. Schilt vs Overeem

    ozz where have you been in hiding or posting at other sites?

    The pairings already announced for December Overeem draws Teixeira, Schilt vs LeBanner, Hari vs. Karaev, and Bonjasky vs. Zimmerman.

    In the Taiei vs Morosanu fight it looked like Moro was paing Taiei back for punching him when he thought the round was over, he was winning the fight and headind to a ko win, Taiei will get koed next fight. It looked like after the punch he looked over to make sure the ref saw. Shades of Montell ice Griffith vs Roy Jones Jr.
