I completely agree. It's gonna be a good fight standing for sure But if CC mounts him its over

Mirko is either going to knock him out or submit him first round.

Mirko's training with Sergei Kharitonov (fedor's former training partner), Ricco Rodriguez (screwed up conditioning, but he beat Minotauro in a grappling match once), Remy Bonjasky (2003 & 2004 K-1 champion) and Gilbert Yvel (who is training at Ernesto Hoost's* former camp).

* Ernesto Hoost, the man who always beat Cro cop.

I'm shocked people are just writing off Kongo. He is one hell of a fighter. I do think Mirko will win, but it will be a close fight. Crocop to win by 2nd round TKO. It will be interesting to see what Kongo's chin is like, iut hasn't been tested yet.

bbbbbbbaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh, one hell of a fighter???? lets not get ahead of ourselves here. he has "good" strinking his ground game is 10 times worse than mirko's which is mediocre. his chin will be tested and it won't be in the second round. trust me mirko is still ranked #3 hw in the world for a reason and it's not because he is going to have a "close fight" with kongo. mirko was one fight away from a title shot against couture and now he's on mop up duty against kongo and he knows that he has to come out and destroy him. gonzaga beat couture with a kick but it was set up by the ground game and there is no way that kongo is going to go to the ground in this one so he is going to have to bang it out with the most dominating hw striker in mma history. good luck chieck im praying for you.

Know Respect, No Respect-----The title is Novice, why don't you read my posts. Then switch it to Expert.

i understand that kongo is a formidable striker but i think (and hope) that cro cop will end up in jail after the fight with cheik. cos u go to jail when you're guilty for a 3rd degree murder.....

Forum Bets: 2-0

Only 2/1 odds for Kongo.. Wow.. Now there's absolutely no reason to bet on Kongo.

I think it will be interesting to see Kongo with a ground game (even though I doubt the fight will gp there) because Juanito said they have been working on that a lot.
