Ok, please tell meI wasn't the only one who was completely surprised by Bigfoot's KO of Overeem. With the way that fight was going, it wasn't the war I thought, but Overeem got caught and went down HARD!! Good showing by former Strikeforce fighters, Woodley was very impressive. Green did a great job too.
Muay Thai, yes! I also love Jeet Kun Do. Just cause I am asian :]

I thought Overeem would win this one easily given how slow Bigfoot is, but he wasn't able to bully Bigfoot in the clinch so nothing happened in the first 2 rounds. The way he was dropping his hands, Overeem was just asking to get knocked out. I think giving Bigfoot a rematch with Cain right away would be a mistake though. The KO was impressive but that was more about what Overeem didn't do rather than what Bigfoot did.

who do you think cain should fight next?

Bigfoot makes me laugh... after he won against browne he was begging for a rematch with cain (there's an interview on youtube), but when he won against overeem he didn't ask for it anymore, he was clearly avoiding the topic of having a rematch with him everytime someone asked if he wanted to fight for the title because he saw how he destroyed dos santos

we just saw how alisteroids overdose is overrated

Although they don't want to fight each other, DC vs Cain would be a match I'd like to see. Otherwise they might need to do the winner of Struve vs Hunt if they want to get Cain back in the ring as soon as possible. Both Hunt and Struve are on winning streaks even though it isn't exactly against top contenders, but this is heavyweight so it's not like the division is super deep. I think they'll probably give JDS a rubber match sooner than later also.

Edit: and just after I type all this, I read that Dana confirms Cain vs Bigfoot and JDS vs Overeem.

Mines are:
Cain 1st round via KO

King Mo becomes the second powerful striker to succumb to leaving one's hand down. Emanuel Newton was wise for going for that spinning backfist, awesome KO. I was really dissapointed to see Rad Martinez go down but Shahbulat Shamhalaev is going to be a star. I'm impressed with his power and he can mix up his strikes too, he's a dangerous man. Great card from Bellator last night!
