Those rankings are garbage! Hong Man Choi = #8 kickboxer in the world? Bob Sapp #41? Terrible

Well yeah, Cro Cop is consistent in his "whomping dude's after he gets brutally KO'ed" ordeal.

Also, Mirko is taking this thing seriously, and didn't just watch one fight on Youtube like he did against Gonzaga. Dude knows that Gonzy almost prevented him of playing hopscotch, so he's going to take it out on Kongo.

People underestimate Mirko's ground game. He's a BJJ brown belt. Granted his style is extremely defensive, and he's far more likely to hold you in his guard until the fight is stood up than he is to submit you.

There's no doubt that his Jiu-Jitsu is better than Kongo's, whether or not he will pull of a submission (he has one sub, a standing guillotine, and 3 other verbal taps(subs), one due to leg kicks :P).

He's got some decent ground and pound however, and if he took Kongo to the ground there's a decent chance that things could end with a TKO.

On their feet, I believe that Mirko is a better striker. He did well in K1, though there were quite a few who were better. The thing is, his style of standup was a better translation into MMA than the other K1 fighters.

I still believe that he is one of, if not, the best striker in MMA, despite a dissapointing loss to Gonzaga. Gonzaga is very good, no doubt, but if you've followed Mirko for any length of time then you'll agree that he was just not himself in that fight.

Mirko has experienced some pretty unlikely losses in the past, and each time has come back on a brutal rampage, kicking off heads left and right, and I think he has it in himself to do it one last time.

BJJ Brown belt? I highly, highly doubt that. The majority of MMA fighters aren't even brown belts...

I do agree he's a much better striker than Kongo though

I can confirm that he's atleast a blue belt level, which is what I thought he was. But I've seen a few people on this forum say that he's a brown belt under Werdum. If they were misinformed themselves, then I can tell you that he is at blue belt level.

Whats next for Roger Huerta?

After many dominant victories against relative no-names. I really feel that now is the time for the UFC to put their money where their mouth is and give their poster boy a challenge. Roger is fast becoming one of my favorite fighters and I personally would love to see him tested to the best of his ability.

He is relentless in his attack, he has great cardio, he finishes fights when he can, and he is smart. Now is the time UFC, test your boy. So I guess my question is...

Who do you want to see Roger Huerta fight next?

clay guida

they won thier last fight..IMO its now time to test Huerta's cardio,wrestling and striking..a fast paced 3-round is a good fight to watch..

i think Guida will win this in the eyes of all but the judges will probably give this to Huerta by a close decision.

Rooting for..
HW - Brandon Vera
LHW - Lyoto Machida
MW - Martin Kampmann
WW - John Fitch
LW - Clay Guida

First of all a very good post, ya pointed out that Huerta has faught no one spectacular, however could be a prospect in the division!

And yeah, I think its about time they gave him a step up in class...not anyone A level to be honest, I think a BJ Penn, Sean Sherk or even Joe Stevenson would defeat him wit ease...Huerta is very agressive and I noticed several times in the Crane fight that a better fighter would have punished him for what I consider bein a bit "sloppy"...

I think these fighters would be suitable for the "next" step:

Jorge Gurgel (tough lil SOB)
Melvin Guillard (Huerta has yet to fight a guy wit heavy hands)
Alvin Robinson (a descent fighter wit good ground skills)
Sam Stout (Has FOTN award written all over it)
