whatever, running was a good strategy for crocop right there, he needs a little distance for his striking game, and fedor is so much bigger that he could just toss crocop around like a ragdoll in close.


edit: and by the way holy freakin sheet!! I can't wait to see cro cop sylvia!

Wow this is fantastic news, finally Silvia fights someone that has actually won a fight, I can't wait 'til Mirko cracks his foot over the side of that ape's head, causing him to shit himself again!

I would still prefer Cro Cop and Fedor to remain in Pride, due to better competition that Pride has to offer.. especially there HW lineup

but im all for Tim Losing his UFC belt to a real MMA HW Fighter! so if that takes Crocop coming over then i am all for it

i also forgot to add that, it might actually be better for MMA as a whole here in the U.S if a champion like Mirko Cro Cop came over to the UFC why because, many new comers to this sport, dont think outside the Box, they only know the "American Fighters" Hughes, Rich Franklin, Tim Sylvia, etc.. and think they are the End all, Be all of this great SPORT..

and saddly dont have much respect/knowledge for other great fighters that reside outside of the U.S, with Cro Cop coming over, it literally is impossible not to Ackknowledge a man of this Caliber even if he isn't American and I think UFC is headed to the right path ie. George Saint Pierre (Canadian), Anderson Silva (Brazilian), etc...

It shows the newcomers that there are great and sometimes Better Athletes then whats in the States, and that is what MMA is all about, Evolution!

and plus Cro Cop is one of my favorite fighters and if they can pay this man more, and make his life better, then i am all for it... he trains 350 days a YEAR! he is not cocky/arrogant, he is very involved in Politics, was a member in the Croatian Parliament and still trains the Croatian Police/Anti Terrorist, what MMA fighter is this involved !

Mirko is truely an inspiration

Actually it looks like the UFC's heavyweight division might be just as good with the additions they have been making especially if they can get Fedor's little bro. Nothing even says Fedor will stay with Pride he is also a free agent and is fighting a fight outside of Pride coming up. Nothing even says Pride will exist in a year or two with all the problems they are having. I also think that everyone recognizes other countries have great talent. It is just natural for Americans to root for Americans. Im rooting for Rich to make his comeback and turn Silva inside out. I'll be rooting for Hughes to beat Pierre although I really like Pierre and think he is a great guy. I would want Sylvia to put up a good fight against Crocop but I would want Crocop to win because he is exciting as hell to watch.
