Yeah, from a completely unbiased point of view (honest here) I really think that Kang would dominate against the top MW's in the UFC. I think that there are some people who just don't know who he is. He could easily be the best MW in the world, even if he's only ranked as number 6. He's very well rounded. His standup is very good, and he has a BJJ black belt under Marcus Soares up in Vancouver.

I was surprised to see that he hasn't faced Hendo.

it still remains to be seen how he would fare in the UFC with UFC rules...

IMHO I think he would fare well regardless... if only he would indeed sign with the UFC ...please please

If he really wanted the best fighters, he wouldn't be so concerned about the best financial offer.

I think Gonzaga could have still taken Cro Cop to the ground but you can't throw elbows in Pride and Cro Cop said himself that the elbows messed him up and everybody has been dogging on him for not training in a cage so the atmosphere will be different too but I think Kang has fought in a cage before anyway so it wouldn't matter that much, or as much as Cro Cop.

Cro Cop was an idiot going into that fight, no offense. But you don't come to an organization where they allow elbows and then not train for them; that is just asking for trouble-which he found. If your a fighter you train for all aspects of the game, Fedor has worked elbows into his training and added them to his repertoire-thus showing how smart and dangerous Fedor is. As for Kang I am sure he has worked them/trained for them and if he was to sign with the UFC I am sure he would add them after seeing what happened to Mirko.

Yeah cuz who wants to feed thier family or have nice things? It all ties together and frankly he has to do what's right by his bank account and not his rep, IMO.

Why do people hug Franklin's nuts? Because the guy brings it EVERY time. He lost to Silva and Machida, two very talented fighters. But I guess because he lost to those guys, we should forget the fact he tooled guys like Evan Tanner?

Rich has a great chance at beating Anderson Silva if he goes in and avoids the clinch game. His victory over Okami wasn't great, but you know what? Nobody looks amazing against Yushin Okami, he makes fighters look dismal and ineffective.

Because Rich got KO'd by Silva doesn't make him less of a great fighter and a fantastic ambassador for the sport.

On-topic:

I hope this Kang rumor is true, he is a freakin' monster at 185. Kang vs Silva would be an AMAZING fight.

I like Denis. I hope he comes.

You don't know who I am? You must be new.
