GRACIEMAG.com kept tabs on MMA fans’ reaction to the Alistair Overeem-Fabrício Werdum fight, whether on our own website or social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. The fight went down this Saturday in Dallas, where the latest round of the Strikeforce heavyweight GP was held.
In a lukewarm affair featuring more strategy than action, each fighter did his best to avoid dealing with the other’s strong points. Werdum repeatedly summoned his opponent to the ground, with Overeem just telling him to get up. Moments of impact were few and far between. Overeem stayed on his feet more but did little to attack. Once the scorecards were in, Alistair got the nod by unanimous decision.
Regardless of the quality of entertainment on display in the fight, there were a number of fans who didn’t agree with the outcome. In their view the black belt did more to attack, while Overeem was resigned to defend.
“I feel Werdum won,” tweeted @romulobarral.
