I can see him getting a title shot right off the bat. Everybody knows he's no joke. I would almost bet Dana's reasoning for getting him was for a title shot specifically. But with a name like Mirko's anybody he gets put up against is gonna attract fans and fans=money. So ya never know All I can say is that Dana will make the most of him while he's got him under contract

No one seems to think theres a possibility that this guy can lose. Say Crocop vs Fedor? who wins

"Muscle Shark" Sherk
Matt Hughes
Tim Sylvia

Yeah no ones saying he doesnt deserve his shot at the UFC title but you cant put him in contention right off the bat. He may be good enough to beat the **** out of Sylvia but he has to make his way to that fight first.

UFC's HW Division sucks ass man. Anyone can see that. I never said he is unbeatable. He is coming to the UFC and will own everyone plain and simple.

its not a case where he CANT lose, just in the UFC where the heavyweight division is the weakest, its just very improbable that he would lose to these fighters, UNLESS he underestimates the fight like he has done before, hence resulting in a loss.

Fedor>everyone else (even Cro Cop)

If Sylvia beats Vera there will be no one else for him to fight. So giving Cro Cop a title shot ASAP makes the most sense.

I want the fighters who hold the title to be the best...I don't care about them paying their dues in the UFC or proving that they deserve a title shot. We already know they do.

And im not arguing your point Bungle, but you cant just shoot up a fighter for the title shot in his first apperance because you think he deserves it. Im not saying Crocop doesnt, from what i hear he absolutely does, but thats not fair to everyone else proving themselves for contention thats all im saying

Bottom line is Dana just threw a whole lot of loot to Mirko for one reason. Because he knows everyone thinks the HW division is sh*t. So he might not waste paying Mirko to fight chumps. He brought Mirko knowing full well that he would be the UFC heavyweight champion. Basically Dana went out and bought a HW champ. Whatever happens is cool, Mirko will eventually be the champ. But we all know that he doesn't have to prove him self by fighting his way through the ranks of the UFC HW division. Dude is the truth. He is the best heavyweight in UFC.
