Mirko Cro Cop vs Mark Hunt 2 (Shockwave 2005).
Badass, HW fight. Mostly striking, and it's all badass striking. Mirko is merciless with the kicks. Right off the bat, he nails a sick leg-kick and then goes on to nail Hunt with, like, a bunch of high-kicks that would kill a regular man. Hunt keeps stalking Mirko and throws him off his game.
What a fight. The best fight on Shockwave 2005, and a FOTYC for the year 2005. Even though Mirko lost, he still looked like a killer. This was 2 MEN fighting! We haven't seen a high-level, HW, MMW striking bout like this since.
Man, it sucks to see current Cro Cop. He used to be the scariest dude in the HW division. How Hunt didn't die from those head kicks, I'll never know. Wait, yes I do know, it's Mark Hunt.
Man, what a glorious fight.
