Overeem is the best MMA Heavyweight on the planet - I Dont care what some shitty ranking says

Remember these are the same rankings that had Lesnar as number one

There is NOBODY in MMA I would put as a favorite over Alistair.

IF he takes out the GP he'll be top 3, with a strong case for #1.

Running through Werdum, Silva and then Barnett/Rogers/Kharitonov is a ****ing enormous ask.

As the best unless JDS beats Carwin and Cain in that then he will undoubtedly be the best in the world and that would maybe even include the best MMA striking as his hands would appear unstoppable.

He is right now, Dream Heavyweight Champion, K1 Heavyweight Champion and Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion. And whenever he goes to UFC, he will will take the belt there also.

Depends what happens in the UFC doesn't it - if Velasquez runs through a couple of guys before the grand prix finishes then I'd probably still rank him ahead of Overeem. But yeah an Overeem that wins the grand prix and looks good in doing so would have proven himself a genuine force.

yea it will be sooo sick to see JDS VS OVEREEM. If they stand which they probably will it would be a Boxing style vs Kickboxing/Muay Thai, if jds beats cain then i would agree he has the best hands but is that enought to put away the hercules the ubereem? BEST KNEES VS BEST HANDS LETS GET IT ON!!!!

Reem vs JDS would be insane. Big, strong, powerful, skilled guys in shape. JDS has amazing hands but he has the footwork to go with it. Reem is an elite striker and an all rounder.

I think Reem blows Jds out of the water actually, but I would love to see it happen.
