Alistair (Demolition Man) Overeem isn’t impressed with Antonio (Big Foot) Silva.

A Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt with brutal ground-and-pound, Silva holds victories over Fedor Emelianenko, Travis Browne and Andrei Arlovski. However, to hear Overeem size up the former EliteXC heavyweight champion, you would think he’s getting ready for a leisurely stroll in the park.

“He’s big, he’s got big bones. Nothing else really impresses me,” Overeem said bluntly. “I mean, you don’t want to get caught by a punch from him, but you don’t want to get caught by anyone.
