I believe Herring has improved a lot more than Cro Cop. From his training, lifestyle and the way he's been fighting.
Cro Cop is still the same fighter he was since he debut in MMA. He refused to evolve with the rest of the sport until he got knocked out, then even after bringing in countless K-1 Fighters like Bonjasky he still couldn't get the job done.
I know it's not really fair to critique the guy for his style of fighting, but how can you honestly say that a guy who lost 2 fights in the UFC, followed by Pro Wrestling, Followed by a can over in Dream, deserves to be in the same ring as a top HW let alone you guys think he'll beat them.
I don't see cro cop beating, Herring, Kongo, Lesnar, MInotauro, Le Banner, or Overeem.
If Cro Cop wants to convince me he'll beat any of the UFC HW's or Overeem for that matter he needs a decent tune up fight because he hasn't exactly impressed me at all lately
I think Herring will win a Unanimous Decision or dare a say it a TKO. Flame Away!
