Yeah, its not like Crocop is good fighting from the bottom and hes not gonna be able to take Hong down and get on top of him. On the feet Mirko would really need to be on his toes working the body with his legs and moving. This fight would stay on the feet and I just think Hong can jab Mirko to death.

Mirko is WAY too fast for HMC, but HMC has mad power. Mirko can win this on points if he works the leg and body kicks and some jabs.

However, Mighty Mo's KO'd him, and Mirko is alot bigger, so it shouldn't be impossible.

Because Choi is twice Mirks size.

The more I think about this, the more likely I thinkit is that Crocop would lose.

I would bet big money on Choi, he is a foot taller and outweighs Mirko by 150 pounds. I dont see how Mirko wins this fight.

Having Cro Cop (23-6-2) fighting guys that are 3-2 (last fight) and now a guy that's 1-1.

Sounds lopsided to me.

Yeah, but thats Choi's MMA record and this fight is going to be nothing more than a glorified K-1 match, which Choi does quite well at. Throw in the size and power he has, I think Cro Cop goes down in this fight.

Cro Cop is screwed if Hong falls on top of him. Also he could use his size and reach to bully Mirko.

However, on points Mirko can take this with straight kick boxing. Choi looked really underwhelming against JLB.

I agree with your gameplan on how Cro Cop could win the fight, but don't you think that his speed has seemed to slow down enough that it won't be an overwelming factor?
Also, do you think that Cro Cop possesses the same pure punching power as Mighty Mo?
