Overeem dominated Mirko from start to finish. He looked out of Crocops league last night. Was this performance enough to get him in the top 10? I think so. Thoughts?

Yeah, That's exactly why I picked Alistair, I knew he is on another Level now, Right now I'd have to keep him unranked due to the fact that the Fight was a No Contest but a Rematch will be in place

Its amazing what a little cardio could do. CroCop had no answer. I expected Allistair to eat some punches atleast but all and all I was impressed. I would put him in the top 10 for sure. I think his style is very difficult to compete with. He has become very well rounded. I hope he gets to fight some more big named guys ( Rothwell, Arlovski, Tim).
I love DREAM's production but I have always wanted the UFC to sign Overeem.
Overeem vs Gonzaga would be an awesome fight.

i already had him top 10 before & consider dropping him a spot in honor of CC's unborn children

I put Overeem in my top 10 after the Hunt win, now i just bumped him up to 8 right above Herring!

The UFC really needs to sign him.

I am torn.

Before the fight, I had CC #11 and Overeem #12 (so niether in the top 10).

Overeem absolutely dominated, however I thought his actions warranted a disqualification (not a no contest).
Although, I truly believe Overeem would dominate in a hypothetical rematch, I feel I should just leave the rankings unchanged.

Ask me a few minutes and I may change my mind (again).

I had him at 9 before the fight and moved him up a spot after his performance last night.

He was possibly top 10 before this fight, however it should of been a dq and it shouldnt effect anything,.I also didnt think his performance was that impressive, all i saw was some gnp and lots of shots to the groin.

I agree. I'm not changing my rankings based on that match. Hopefully they can reschedule and Alistair can learn how to clinch with someone who's shorter than he is (which is basically everybody, so you'd think he'd have figured it out by now...).
