This fight was a very risky fight for Overeem, before this fight he was one (max two) fights away from a UFC title fight at 6th position of HW ranking, while Rozenstruik was on 14th place with perfect record 8 fights, 7 KO and zero loses. Despite the risk Overeem took the fight, to make a one step closer to the UFC title shot, the only one that he is missing in his collection.
Just to remind you, Overeem is a former Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion, DREAM Heavyweight Champion, K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, and one of only two fighters to hold world titles in both MMA and K-1 kickboxing at the same time.
He is already legend, achieved things that no one else did and if he ever win the UFC belt, he will be definitely only one in history of MMA who ever did that.
