This could be me but the way it seem is Kongo is thinking that CC was Killed last fight doesn't look like much and that Kongo might just run through him..It really looks to me that Cro cop is back and ready for war.. I think its going to be tough but i really think CC will walk away with the W .. Just like Apollo Creed said...


Kongo fights Great.. But Cro Cop's a Great Fighter..

Thiago Silva is basically an unknown and so is Drwal. Drwal, an equally matched opponent, beating Silva, wouldn't be shocking as shit. I don't hear many people saying, "That Thiago Silva is going to crush his opponent."

I picked Silva to win, but man, I don't think anyone would be shocked as hell to see Drwal win the thing.

the average UFC fan sees Thiago Silva, a man they've seen win in the octagon several times, versus some some polish guy whose name no one can pronounce...

to ufc fans, this would be an upset.

Does "several times" just mean one time (Not counting this one coming up)?

Do UFC fans actually give a shit about a guy who won because his opponent blew out his knee about a minute into the fight?

I confess Anton, without being a smartass, that the idea of this thread came from reading your thread about Silva being upset but I want to know who the upset of the televised fights are.

Frankly, I am shocked so many people pick CC/Kongo. I see the potential for upset but I see waaaaay more in the Bisping/Hamill fight but that's why they are called opinions.

I don't see cro cop losing to kongo. however, i have picked hamill to win, so that would be the upset. I've went back and forth on this fight alot but yeah, I think Hamill will win via LnP.

You are talking rubbish mate, no offense.

@ that thread....
The only fight that can be a big upset is if Cro Cop loses...(I don't see that happening)
Im not gonna be shocked if anyone else beats anyone.

If Hendo/Rampage ends within the first round could we call that an upset?

Other than that, I pick Hammil.

You can't possibly believe that. I downloaded that fight...and good god, he looked terrible. His striking was off, he couldn't time anything against Holomon. Wild swings that don't connect don't count for anything. I can literally see his eyes closed during some of the exchanges. Hammill better have been working striking these past few months.
