Cro Cop is a kickboxer, he fares well in a ring because he can cut you off easily and back you into a corner.
Everyone talks a lot of shit but in reality, Cro Cop came to the UFC in his prime, he'd just beaten Barnett and become GP champion and he also just KOed Wanderlei.
Eddie Sanchez is a complete can, same with Perosh, Al-Turk and Pat Barry (Who would have won had he not broken his hand and foot). And Napau is no world class striker.
Cro Cop and the octagon just aren't good friends.
Also nobody ever talks about this anymore but Cro Cop went to dream after Kongo beat him and won a few fights in a ring before coming back to the octagon to lose to every good fighter he would fight until his retirement.
The guy was an icon and I loved him in Pride, but like Wanderlei and Shogun aswell, the ring suits his style a lot better than the octagon does.
