In a recent interview with sherdog.com, former UFC heavyweight fighter Bas Rutten talked about the next UFC heavyweight matchup between current champ Junior Dos Santos and #1 contender Alistair Overeem.  Rutten believes that Dos Santos has the better edge against Overeem and it’s because of his superior striking combinations.  He also feels that Overeem has a “glass jaw”, which Dos Santos can easily capitalize on.

From Bas Rutten:

“I think Alistair, everything he does is one single shot because he knows he’s got that glass jaw as well. He’s been knocked out quite a few times in the past, even by Chuck Liddell as well. Every time when he punches, one hand is up. He throws single shots; he doesn’t throw combinations. You saw that when he fought [Fabricio] Werdum. Werdum was actually tagging him more than he did to Werdum. I think that Junior dos Santos, with his combinations, his reach, I think he’s going to tag him and he’s going to throw combos and I think that yeah, he’s going to take this fight.”

Grandmas Kitchen with Bas Rutten was scheduled to air on February 26, 2010, however, due to a physical altercation between Bas and the co-hosts of the show production has been temporarily delayed.

We knew that Bas had a short fuse when we got into this, said Jebara. We believe that Bas response was justified and we will continue to support him in the future.

This show is the first collaboration between Tokyo Five and Rutten.

A lot of people dont know this, but I have been a certified chef and passionate foodie for many years, Rutten said. My cooking style is Dutch-American fusion, mostly traditional recipes that I learned from my grandma, but with a little bit of kick. Sometimes I take my job too seriously. Hopefully we can resolve our issues and continue with the filming of the show.

Bas Rutten Has No Respect For Kimbo Slice Anymore

The former UFC heavyweight champion Bas Rutten recently stated that he had absolutely no respect for his former MMA student Kimbo Slice.  Slice currently holds an overall MMA record of 3-1.  His last fight was a knockout loss to “The Silverback” Seth Petruzelli back in October of 2008 over at the EliteXC ‘Heat’ event.  Since then, the internet backyard street fighter has yet to participate in any MMA competition.  He has officially entered the upcoming TUF 10 season to try to battle his way up to the top of the UFC heavyweight division.

Here are some comments that Bas Rutten left us with in regards to Kimbo Slice:

“I misjudged him, he turned into a whole different person. I told him a few weeks ago, I had a sit down with him. I told him that he was an asshole and that I have zero respect (for him) and I cant train people that I have no respect for. Can’t ever. He just turned into a different guy, he didn’t need to do the things that I told him to do. He wasn’t going to go to the ground, you know? He learned some things but he started to forget them. In the Thompson fight he did some great escapes in round number one but once fatigue hit him, he didn’t do anything. And what I didn’t like about the Thompson fight as well was he said afterwards ‘Yeah, we planned on fighting three rounds’ and I told him ‘Don’t say that, you were lucky the referee didn’t stop the fight in the second round’. Don’t say we planned to fight three rounds, it wasn’t a plan. If (my students) don’t do what I say, they are out. I am there for the best interests of the fighters, I want them to win. If they don’t accept that, bye bye.”
