Where is Cro Cop in your heavyweight rankings?

In the first round the guy was pushing forward and looked alright. But in the 2nd and 3rd backing up and he lost because of that...

So where can you put Cro Cop in your heavyweight rankings??? Can you still put him 2nd or 3rd after losses to Gonzaga and Kongo, neither of these were top 10 before the fight and i doubt Kongo will be afterwards.

I had it..
Fedor, Cro Cop, Nogueira then Barnett.. I swapped Nog with Cro Cop but i can't seem to let myself put him below Barnett after he's beaten him 3 times.

Where would you put him??
And also will Cro Cop come back after this and start winning? Who can they have as his next opponent?

I think the loser of the Sylvia, Vera fight should fight Cro Cop, they need him to fight a big name.. Thats why he is here, and thats the way that Cro Cop can play a big name after his 2 losses, playing one that is coming off a loss.. Hey you never know, maybe a Gonzaga rematch?

I think Cro Cop would win against either Sylvia, Vera or Gonzaga.

I would probably have him fifth or sixth. I would have him face the loser of Tim vs. Vera. I really don't know if he would beat either guy now.

I put him 9th or 10th. He just lost to 2 no names in a row, and against Kongo he seemed scared.

I would be nervous for him in that fight, but I would have to back him. I want to find an interview of what he had to say about that fight. It just wasn't the same Cro Cop that won the Pride open weight Grand Prix.. It was only this time last year that he won that (tomorrow infact), and now a year later who would of said that he's in this position?

I don't think anybody predicted this. It doesn't make sense to me either. Both Gonzaga and Kongo have like out muscled him. Sure they're both big strong guys but in the past Mirko has out muscled Barnett, Herring - who are both very strong guys. I just don't know what to think.

Crocops next fight could quite possibly be the last in his career, therefore there is no reason to give him a can.
Give him a contender and let him prove himself as the great fighter he is.

I cant help but think that Crocop is just to small to dominate as a heavyweight in the UFC (I know Randy is a smaller heavyweight but his style allows him to controll bigger opponents).

Also Crocops style suits the ring alot better as he cant be nuetralised against the fence and his opponents cant retreat as much so he can land his kicks. Did anyone else think that crocops kicks appeared to lack the power they have in the past?

I disagree about his style and the octagon. He could always escape the when he was on the ropes in ring, but he can't escape the cage and he can't outwrestle guys when the pin him there. Plus the rules don't alllow him to kick opponents on the ground which is a big minus for him. I'm a big fan of his but I don't know can he come back after this performance.

Simple answer is he is no longer a top 10 fighter. At one point he was a top 3. Those days are over. If you judge him by his last 3 fights, he has looked scared and was very ineffective with everything he did. He has looked like a can, and 2 virtually unknown unranked fighters had their way with him!
