I feel you on that one. Cro Cop is one of my favorite fighters along Lawler and a few others. When Cro Cop loses it's on the same level of disappointment for me like when the Ravens lose. Football losses are hard to take because there's only 16 games and MMA losses are hard because a fighter only fights so many times. Also, Mirko is on the other side of his career and he only has so many fights left in him. I really hope he gets back and does his thing. Also, anyone know what happened to Huerta? Since the Florian loss, I haven't heard anything about him.

I think Cro Cop vs Kongo/Cain winner is a good title eliminator. As for Huerta he is currently blacklisted for publicly complaining about money. Dont be surprised if you dont see him at all this year.

You know what? I do remember him complaining about that but I'm disappointed he hasn't been fighting. He got too big for his britches. Remember how cocky and disrespectful he was? He's like the Diaz brothers for me. They are the only fighters who are A-holes that I still like. I'm usually a fan of respectful fighters who are good guys. I'm sure Machida won over a lot of people with his attitude. He won me over that's for sure. Sorry I didn't mean to turn this into another topic.

Mirko needs to dominate for me to believe again and Marcus Davis needs to smash Hardy for his comments about "fake Irishmen."

What I like about Cro Cop here is that he is coming here for US and himself, to retake his PRIDE! He is not bitching about money, his losses or whatever, he just want to fight in the UFC becasue he thinks he owes us and himself a good performance in the biggest org in the world! Restekpah!

I think it should be cro cop v kongo/cain loser and the winnner should face Carwin for title contention. Or just give the shot to carwin now or the winner of cain/kongo. Since brock/mir fight is next month..if we have to wait for another "contenders" match..the HW belt will be on hold for upwards of 8 months.
