The main event of UFC on ESPN+ 7 card in St. Petersburg, Russia, last weekend featured an interesting matchup of a whooping 130 combined fights as MMA legend Alistair ‘The Demolition Man’ Overeem took on MMA veteran Alexey ‘The Boa Constrictor’ Oleinik.

The bout might have looked like a typical striker vs. grappler matchup on paper, however either of these two individuals had the ability to finish the fight anywhere. That being said, the fight paid justice for how long it lasted. However Overeem landed his trademark knee to floor Oleinik and got the job done via first round TKO.

The victory marked Overeem’s fortieth finish out of his 45 victories with a massive finishing rate of almost 90 percent. The victory also marked his twenty-third TKO victory paying justice to his elite kickboxing background. Another fascinating facts being, despite being a K-1 champion, eighteen of his victories have come through by the way of submission, making him one of the most well rounded fighters in the sport.

Overeem has not only fought but defeated some of the elites of the sport. Overeem’s resume certainly speaks for himself. (via Twitter):

Not mentioned are the world champions he faced in his kickboxing career as well. Along with K-1, Overeem has won titles in Strikeforce, PRIDE and DREAM as well. Overeem would desperately love to add a UFC belt to top off his illustrious career.
