That's a joke. Overeem has been fighting in K-1, Dream, Strikeforce, etc. Much better competition in the UFC.

Even Jake Shields had a MUCH bigger pedigree than Overeem and he had to win at least 1 fight before facing GSP.

Overeem couldn't even beat the likes of Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione.

Anything after that fiasco can be justified...

True, but at least Lesnar came in and beat some people in the UFC (including a former champ in Frank Mir) rather than UFC washouts. He should at least come in and have to fight somebody with a decent name rather than an immediate shot. Of course, I feel the same about Nick Diaz, but it will also be nice to see Nick get thumped by GSP.

diaz is getting a shot right away ... i don't think he deserves it and when he gets pummelled, all the people who thought he was going to win will realize it too .. i don't think overeem deserves it either and probably won't get it

Yeah, but Diaz was a Zuffa employee in good standing leaving a cleaned out division to enter another cleaned out division. GSP doesn't really have another obvious contender waiting for him. Uber, on the other hand, is a fired employee from a deep division wanting to step straight into another deep division.

The situations are similar, yes, but with enough discrepancies to enough that the justify the difference in result.
