Chad “The Gravedigger” Griggs and his epic mutton chops get ready to take on tournament favorite Alistair Overeem’s older brother Valentijn Overeem. Kerry Hatley will be the third man in the cage for this heavyweight bout.
Round 1: They touch gloves to start things off. Overeem tries for a head kick and misses, Griggs capitalizes and clinches the Dutch fighter. He presses OVereem into the fence. OVereem pushes forward and Griggs hits a lateral drop, landing in Overeem’s half guard. Griggs is teeing off on Overeem. Hatley steps in and stops it while Overeem is turtling up, because Overeem apparently tapped out.
Chad Griggs defeated Valentijn Overeem via TKO (strikes) at 2:08 of round 1
