Big Nog says Alistair Overeem's getting KTFO by Junior dos Santos

Cigano-stare_medium

Alistair Overeem is going down.

That's according to Junior dos Santos' longtime coach and mentor, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, who tells Brazilian media outlet Tatame.com that the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) newest heavyweight champion is going to bury the number one contender once the fists start flying.

"Cigano wins via knockout, I’m sure of that. He’s a lot faster, knows how to move, he won’t get that knee, and he’s much more complete and has much more stamina, and that’ll make a great difference. Overeem has never defeated someone as big as Cigano. Alistair Overeem is a lot bigger, stronger, more explosive, but not big enough to beat Junior dos Santos."

In this "striker vs. striker" match-up, many point to the different stand-up styles each fighter possesses.

For "The Reem," it’s the highest level of kickboxing and for "Cigano," it’s superb boxing. Both skillsets have earned the two heavyweights world championship titles but when locked inside a cage under the UFC banner for the division strap, whose style of striking will prevail?

That's for you to decide in our poll, after the jump.

When the smoke clears, who will be left standing?
