Of everyone fighting on the UFC Fight Night Beijing card, it’s arguable that Alistair Overeem needed a win the most desperately. He faced promotional newcomer, Sergey Pavlovich. Pavlovich was having some success against The Reem. Then, Overeem gets a bully like takedown and scores a nasty NASTY KO.
The first shot that Reem landed sounded like a baseball bat cracking a fastball. Every shot thereafter seemed just as nasty as the one before. The referee had no choice but to stop the fight, as Pavlovich was doing nothing but eating leather.
Overeem had been on a two-fight losing streak where he was brutally knocked out in both. He badly needed a win and boy did he get a good one.
