Alistair Overeem Beats Augusto Sakai At UFC Fight Night on The Mat

Like two lions battling it out Alistair Overeem and Augusto Sakai went at each other on the mat at UFC Fight Night. The two fought hard and fast but only one of them could come out the victor. That person was Overeem who prevailed with a TKO on the mat. Overeem used all his skill to come record his 47th win, 42 or which were stoppages. Alistair Overeem, who is a former K1 veteran, not only used his kick boxing skills but also takedowns to get Sakai in a position for some ground and pound.

Where Alistair goes from he is not know. He is surely going to find himself a Championship belt contended after winning four of his last five fights in the UFC. One thing is for sure is that he will head back to the tatami mats to continue his training. The only place a fighter like Overeem finds comfort is on tatami mats which is where all the hard work takes place to become a champion. One the mats is where you will find all MMA fighter readying themselves for their next fight.

I wonder who the UFC will pair up with Overeem next. Stipe Miocic, the current heavyweight champ, will probably fight Francis Ngannou next, although there is talk of him also maybe fighting Jon Jones. For his part Jone Jones is vacating the Light Heavyweight title and is moving up to heavyweight. That said is might be a few fights away for Overeem for a shot at the title. Even then he would have to continue winning fight. His best bet is to put in effort on the tatami mats to get his skill back to where it needs to be for him to get a shot at the UFC heavyweight title.

Tatami Mats as Karate Mats

Tatami mats have been around for a long time. The Japanese had literally used tatami mats in their homes for millennia. If you watched the Hollywood blockbuster starring Tom Cruise, the last samurai, you would have noticed that all the homes in the movie has tatami mats. Indeed every home in Japan at the time and including today have such mats. The mats have a historic and ceremonial place which is integral to daily life. Like I said even in modern Japan homes still have some sort of tatami mat upon which people sit and sip tea just as they did for many centuries. Even in western homes you will some times find tatami mats as a interior design element.

The interesting thing is that as much tatami was used in the home it was also used in training Japanese martial arts. At the time and even today traditional Japanese martial arts use tatami in their dojos. A lot of them refuse you use modern tatami mats, which are made form vinyl and compressed foam, and instead use tatami made through traditional means. Whilst some might find this stupid, it is admirable that people still use the traditional type even though it made training harder.

Of all the martial arts that use tatami for training the most famous martial art from Japan is karate. Karate schools often us tatami mats as karate mats mainly because of the reason that they represent the historic aspect of the training. That is the thing about karate mats, when you say karate mats you often also think about tatami mats. Make no mistake the kind of mats you use for training will influence the kind of training that you do. If you have good quality mats such as our karate mats then you can be sure that your training will be more successful.

The Indicators to Have Them Replaced

So how could you tell that it is time to replace your old gym mats? Here are a few tips that we think you should follow.

  • Showing Visible Signs of Wear and Tear — The easiest way to tell if you need to upgrade your gym mats is to simply take a look at them, closely or even from afar. If your gym padding looks worn out or damaged, then it probably is, and it needs to be replaced soon. It is also important to remember that padding is not only there for safety and protection. But it also adds to the aesthetics of your gym. If it looks worn out, your entire gym will seem worn-out too.
  • Not Meeting the Standard — If your gym does not meet the standard for impact resistance and fire hazard, then it is time to replace your gym mats. To meet the standard, the padding needs to contain high-quality foam that is thick enough to provide protection for the athletes that may collide with the padding. In addition, it is also important for gyms to have padding that would slow down the spread of fire in case there’s a fire in your gym
  • Not Environmentally Friendly — You could start making a more environmentally friendly gym setting by replacing your old gym padding with new padding that is made from eco-friendly materials. By doing this you could make your gym a place that is healthy for the body and the environment.


Inspect the gym mats in your gym, if it shows any signs that we mentioned above, then it might be time to upgrade your gym mats. You should know about the thickness aspect when it comes to gym mats. For example, MMA mats tend to range from 1 to 2 inches in thickness, however, thicker isn’t always better. The appropriate thickness of your mat would be dependent on the discipline/s you teach in the gym.

Exceptional dovetail (interlocking) connection: A dovetail (also popular as interlocking) joint is a joint that puts two parts of flooring alongside one another, similar to a jigsaw.
