OH BOY AM I PUMPED, FRIENDS
Coming up this Saturday is #UFC203, with the main event featuring one of my all time favorite fighters, Alistair “The Demolition Man” (currently, “The Reem” but, c’mon!) Overeem fighting against Stipe “Wait, you mean he’s not a foreigner?!” Miocic for the UFC HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE OF THE WOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDD!
I won’t pretend like I’ve always followed ‘Reem during his K1 (kickboxing) days or even his PRIDE (mma) days, but I did start following him during his tear in the now defunct STRIKEFORCE MMA promotion and fell in love with his style.
The dude was truly a demolition man. Sure, he might’ve had some synthetic testosterone in him… but that doesn’t change my opinion that he is and has been one of the most entertaining fighters to watch both in the cage/ring and outside the cage/ring.
It’s probably a no-brainer to you, my friend, that I’m picking ‘Reem to win (which will CEMENT his legacy in combat sports. In the words of future president Trump, “It’s gonna be yuge!”) but below are my quick picks on the rest of the card. WORTH NOTING: #UFC203 also features the debut of Phil Brooks, AKA: CM Punk! My guess is that he is going to get destroyed, but we’ll see!
I’d love to know your thoughts on the card and you can tweet at me, @joshuasteubing, with your picks —
