Alistair Overeem has 10 losses on his record by KO or TKO. He has however fought 58 times in his MMA career.
Unforunately for Reem he has also been KO’d 3 times in kickboxing.
Overeem was knocked out at light heavyweight by Chuck Liddell and also by Shogun Rua twice, at heavyweight in the UFC he’s been KO’d by Bigfoot,
Travis Browne, Ben Rothwell and Stipe Miocic.
Overeem admits that fighting the best heavyweights will probably result a 50-50 chance of winning or losing
and probably by knockout. His first 6 fights in the UFC were 3 wins and 3 losses, but his last 6 fights he’s been 5 and 1.
One of those wins was a knockout over Andrei Arlovski, who also has been knocked out 10 times in his MMA career.
Arlovski has fought 40 times and has been stopped by strikes by Francis Ngannou,
Overeem, Miocic, Kharitonov, Brett Rogers. One of the most vicious ones was at the hands of Fedor. A strange one was losing his first MMA fight
to Viacheslav Datsik, a fighter with 6-9 record, who has been been put in a high security mental institution in the past, and is notorious for his
criminal behaviour and vigilante raids on brothels.
One of the guys Arlovski has knocked out in his career is former UFC heavyweight Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, who has been KO’d 9 times in his MMA career.
One of those 9 knockouts was to Frank Mir, who has been KO’d or TKO’d 8 times himself MMA.
Mir however is not in the UFC rankings and on the sidelines at the moment, after testing positive for a banned substance by USADA.
