Default Who do you want to win - Brock or Reem?

Next question - who do you WANT to win???

I don't want the Brock train to derail now. I don't like the haters, I think he is a beast if not an unbeatable one BUT he is a bit social retard. He can be so awkward in interviews and he's like a caveman who doesn't watch TV and just hunts.

On the flipside, Reem strikes me as a bit of a **** in private. Dodgy with the roids. But he was born in England and I should support him on this basis alone. Similarly he is receiving more hype that Brock ever did. He is put across as the demolition man and he is but he has a bully mentality and when pushed seems to break.

Also, I think Reem winning provides us with a much more compelling match up in JDS vs Reem. JDS vs Brock is style vs style whereas Reem vs JDS they should engage more and when they do it could be destructive each and every time.

I want Overeem to win and think he will.

Personally, I feel if he is being hyped more than Brock was then at least it is justified.

Overeem. Purely for the fact we will get to see him vs JDS, which will be explosive.

In a way I'd like to see Brock do it though, just to shut the mouths of some of his haters on here. Someone the other day said he was spoon-fed to the title, which is utter shit. He was fast tracked to the title, yes, but you can't knock the opposition he's fought.

Overeem. I want him to fight JDS, so that weŽll finally know who has the best stand up at HW, it would probably be the most skilled HW stand up fight in mma

The UFC countdown for this is the worse I've ever seen. It totally skewed the events of Overeems career. Rather than say he had a an inconsistent career at 205 where he drained himself and then became a beast at heavy as he got bigger and even better at striking.

Any mainstream fan would not have a clue of how Reems career really went. They are going to be suprised on fight night when it is announced that he has lost ELEVEN LOSSES!

Those are shocking numbers but I never doubt the UFC's approach to business. I would go as far as saying they are the best in the history of combat.

I'm sure you disagree

This is actually the best answer I've ever gotten when asking people why they cheer for an athlete (specifically fighters) based solely on their national origin. Kudos to you, sir.

I want Brock to win. And I think if he does, then Junior will knock the living shit out of him.

But I would really like to see JDS-Overeem, so I'd be excited if Overeem won as well.

Pretty much I just think this is a great fight, tough to call and the main event from the walk-ins on should be exciting as hell.

Overeem. If he wins we get to see a fight with JDS but also because he's one of my favourite fighters.
