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
