Anderson Silva vs Cheick Kongo / Cro Cop

Who wins these two fights?

I think the Cro Cop of late would come up short against the spider, but Cheick Kongo would make for a very interesting fight.

If Anderson wants a challenge from a striker, forget Mir and call out Kongo

Kongo would beat him if AS stands with him, CroCop no so much. Kongo was K1 fighter I believe and has some of the best hands in the HW division. He also has a decent chin. Almost all his loses were because he has absolutely no ground game. I would love for AS to faint the standup, pull a TD to surprise everyone and sub him, that would be awesome.

CroCop I think doesn't have it anymore to beat AS. But he definitely wouldn't be a long shot, unlike Forrest.

If Lutter and Hendo can take AS down and get ontop of him...



Fedor by 1st round any submission he wants.

so.. Kongo could stand and trade with him because he was a K1 fighter, But CroCop couldn't even though he was also a K1 fighter, and if im not mistaken one of the top rated K1 fighters to fight MMA when he went to pride.

Cro-Cop was K1 you are right but if you see his standup now vs when he was in pride(or K1) you'll notice a big difference. He's past his point. When he fought Gonzaga he got owned on the feet as well as on the ground. When he fought Kongo he got destroyed on the feet(nut shots being left out of course). Also Kongo is what 6'4 6'5? 240, Cro- Cop is about Silva's height with shorter reach and doesn't weigh that much more than Silva(walking around weight). Cro-Cop would lose. I don't think it would be a slaughter but he would still lose.

That's like saying Gonzaga owned Tuscherer minus the nut shot.

Prior to making any speculations about CC, I'd need to see where he's at skill wise these days. Of these three fighters, CC is my favorite, but I don't see CC beating the current Anderson Silva.

I'd give the fight to AS against Cheick as well, but not based on anything I could thoroughly argue, just a first instinct opinion.

Yeah I'm sure Silva is getting submitted easily because he isn a black belt under Nog

You can debate who would win with me all you want because it is debatable but I dont think Anderson is getting subbed as easily as you have implied to believe.

and as for the question I would love to see Anderson vs Kongo I think Kongo is the best pure striker in the HW division by far with an excellent chin and great length and power but Cro Cop would get killed

Favs
HW-Brock Lesnar
LHW-Forrest Griffin, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans & Gegard Mousasi
MW-Chael Sonnen
WW-All hail GSP
LW-Frankie Edgar
FW-Kenny Florian & Mark Hominick
BW-Don't really have one but I love their fights
