  • The Forum Threads: UFC Fight Night ‘Jacare vs. Mousasi 2’ By: Jeff Sherwood

    Alistair Overeem faces an uncertain and perhaps unforgiving future.

    The former Strikeforce champion and 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix winner suffered his third knockout loss in four appearances, as he fell prey to Ben Rothwell in the UFC Fight Night “Jacare vs. Mousasi 2” co-main event on Friday at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. Overeem succumbed to punches 2:19 into round one.

    While his ability to absorb punishment has never been a strong suit, it has become an increasingly glaring weakness in recent outings. Overeem, 34, now owns a 2-3 record inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

    Overeem’s latest misstep spawned a number of intriguing threads on the Sherdog.net forums:

    * MUDDIED FUTURE

    * STRIKE FARCE

    * HOLDING PATTERN

    * STYLES MAKE FIGHTS

    * PICKING SIDES

    * BRAWL FOR ALL

    * MASKED MAN
