He has the hairiness advantage, I'll give him that.
true that. Surprizingly CroCop also has the speech advantage, I've never heard someone be so sloppy with their speech as Al Turk. I understand different accents don't get me wrong, that's the way the world works, but my personal opinion, is that Al Turk is a lazy beast. Since when does the word "Fight" get pronounced "Phyi". I'm done poking fun, its just so easy when a guy is that boring.

He's a small heavyweight and his style fits a ring and not a cage. In the UFC fights aren't stood up nearly as fast and that will cost him. I'm a big Cro Cop fan but he is a Pride fighter IMO.
I thought the same thing when he first came to the ufc.. The cage was not for him.

If this Cro Cop shows up, then yes.

If not, then prepare to be disappointed.
