There has been a lot of talk about Overeem signing with the UFC, if so who should his first opponent be?

I want to see Heath Herring back in the octagon, I think a fight between him and overeem would be an exciting one. Thoughts?

I think Herring is a pretty durable guy, and may just push alistair's cardio beyond its limit.

Id personally like to see him fight Gonzaga

The easy answer here is Kongo, plus it'll show if Overeem is a contender and if Kongo is close to a title shot, supposing he dosnt lose to Hardonk that is.

Overeem vs Barry would be awesome as well.

i dunno, i think alistair still has 2 fights with dream. He is also the strikeforce HW champion. i don't think he'll be fighting for the UFC anytime soon.

Strikeforce is working on bringing him in for a title defense later this year, so unless he gives up the title UFC probably isn't happening before then or he drops it.

I think Kongo would be a great fight to watch. Would be a true strikers battle...some serious toe to toe action! I guess it all depends on where Kongo and the rest of the HW division stands when Overeem gets to the UFC.....if he even does go there.

I personally would like to see Overeem destroy Cain V. But we all know UFC doesnt want to build this guy up, to get destroyed by A.O.

But Carwin, Kongo or even Gonzaga would make all good matches. But I really would hate to see Overeem fight Heith, just because they are both favs of mine. But either way whoever Overeem gets, they will be in serious trouble.

And show Mirko how it's done

Overreem x LeBanner would be great to see, but we got to remember that LeBanner's chin is one of the best out there, different from Badr, which like Karaev got the "glass jaws" of K-1. (I'm not saying that they have glass jaws, but in K-1 level, they do)

If they fight in K-1 rules, i'd pick LeBanner


But back to topic, Herring x Overeem would be cool

it just sucks that lebanner is so prone to injuries. that guy hits like a gorilla and is built like a fridge. if he wasnt bombarded with injuries so much he'd be probably #2 in k1 IMO. (remi being the #1)

I like him vs HardonK or Kongo.

I loved watching him destroy Badr Hari with K-1 rules eventhough he is way bigger than Hari. Hari deserved the ass beating.

Give'em Brock!
