UFC Quick Quote: Alistair Overeem has a glass jaw and will lose to Junior dos Santos

Alistair Overeem, who has a glass jaw, according to Bas Rutten.

"I think Alistair, everything he does is one single shot because he knows he's got that glass jaw as well. He's been knocked out quite a few times in the past, even by Chuck Liddell as well. Every time when he punches, one hand is up. He throws single shots; he doesn't throw combinations. You saw that when he fought [Fabricio] Werdum. Werdum was actually tagging him more than he did to Werdum. I think that Junior dos Santos, with his combinations, his reach, I think he's going to tag him and he's going to throw combos and I think that yeah, he's going to take this fight."

-- Mixed martial arts legend turned broadcaster Bas Rutten brings the heat during a recent appearance on the "It's Time!" show with Bruce Buffer. "El Guapo" breaks down the upcoming UFC heavyweight championship showdown pitting titleholder Junior dos Santos against number one contender and fellow Dutchman Alistair Overeem by calling out "The Reem" for his lack of combination punching. Why? Because he has a glass jaw, of course, and he knows he can't take one on the chin from "Cigano" without getting splattered all over the mat. Indeed, dos Santos has made his name -- and won his title -- by putting his heavy hands on his opponents and watching them all fall down. Overeem has a reputation for doing the same but the difference is that "JDS" has never been knocked out. As Rutten so kindly reminds us, "Demolition Man" can't say the same. Far from it, actually. So, by the time all is said and done, we can expect dos Santos to make a successful first defense of his title. Or at least that's what Mr. Rutten thinks. Do you feel the same, Maniacs?
