In the main heavyweight event, Overeem faced JacksonWink teammates Andrei Arlovski, who came in guns blazing early in the very first round, throwing a bunch of punches and knees while Overeem covered up against the fence.

Throughout the rest of the fight Overeem took control with a number of trademark knees in the clinch and kicks, which caught most of Arlovski’s attention. Overeem eventually finished the fight in the second round with a big left hand and concluding with a massive ground-and-pound at 1:12.
