Alistair Overeem Hammers Home Another First Round Victory

Ubereem sighting: Approximately 10:30pm Central Time

Suspect was last seen demolishing Brett Rogers to regain his Heavyweight strap in St. Louis.

Suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

That is what the police report for Alistair Overeem may look like if Brett Rogers filed assault charges after the beating he took.

Alistair Overeem, the Strikeforce champion, defended his title against Brett Rogers without breaking a sweat as he picked up another TKO victory in the first round.

Rogers attempted to clinch, but instead got thrown down like a rag doll and was not quick enough to get to his feet before Overeem stood above him and entered his guard to deliver some massive ground and pound.

The champ unleashed a barrage of powerful fists onto Rogers' dome as the former tire tech curled almost fetal before “Big” John McCarthy stepped in to save Rogers from brain damage.

Overeem took care of his opponent just as easily as he dismantled his last foes Fujita and James Thompson.

Rogers, I think, needs to go back to what got him here which is super-aggressive power punching in the first few seconds because when he attempts to fight technically sound he ends up getting abused.

Overeem was never in trouble at all and held a smirk from the opening bell to the last cranium dangering blow he landed before the stoppage.

If Alistair Overeem’s urinalysis comes back clean, which they all have before, then I believe he deserves to sit right behind Fedor and Lesnar as one of the top heavyweights in the world.

Hopefully, Strikeforce, M-1 Global and anybody else involved can find a way to have Fedor face Overeem, if “The Last Emperor” is successful against Fabricio Werdum. Anything else would be a joke, no doubt about it.

Tonight “The Demolition Man” muted all the haters and proved why he is one of the best fighters in MMA.
