Am, and always will be a huge Cro Cop fan.

That being said, I don't know if he is even physically able to compete at an elite level anymore. He didn't seem as quick against RDS, and has also admitted that he has a lot of trouble throwing his kicks in the cage, saying that it is slippery or something like that.

I don't know, I refuse to get my confidence in the clouds again until he can destroy a good fighter like he used to.

I'll still root for him of course, but I won't be delusional and expect him to work over anyone.

This describes my perspective, also. I'll watch him fight however I can, even if it's just watching old Pride fights and remembering the glory that was.

Matt Hughes of the Heavyweight division, too small and one-dimensional. The sport has moved past him and he needs to drop the title pursuits and just look for some good fights at his current level of competition with some good paydays.

If you can't do what you love.. (Cro Cop loves winning) Love what you do... (fighting)

That being said I will always hold his career in high regard as he was a force in his day. He pretty much single-handedly shut down Josh Barnett's career. I don't think Josh needed steroids to be Couture but evidentally they couldn't get him past Cro Cop.

Ramble! Yay!

Maybe Cro Cop should consider dropping down a weight class. He seems small for a heavyweight anyways, but at lightheavy, he'd be dominant.

I don't think so at all. He strikes me as the guy who thinks that competing in anything but the heavyweight division is like competing in the special Olympics. I don't see him getting fired up for 205lb at all...

I don't think he'd do too well in the LHW division as is, it's so stacked.

He needs to get more calluses on his feet and that fire back in his eyes. I think his reactions are slow because he's daydreaming, not because he's aging.

And one dimensional... well, in the way that Chuck Lidell is one dimensional yeah. He's got decent TDD and good submission defense.

Whether or not he'll get the spark back in time to get good matches remains to be seen. I want the CroCop back that was calling out Fedor and beating up his brother, destroying people with liver kicks, headkicking people's faces clean off... and I'm willing to wait for it.

Spider camp: Anderson Silva will be able to fight at UFC 108

Quote:
“Anderson pulled out some pieces of bones damaged because of the use of his elbows along the years. It’s a simple procedure and he will start training in a month. The surgery took place two and a half weeks ago so he will face Vitor Belfort. Everyone wants this fight, I want this fight. I just think it would be at 88kg whereas Vitor just returned to the event. Be calm people, Spider will throw his web again.”
Anderson Silva’s coach, Josuel Distak, is confident that his star pupil will be healthy enough to throw hands with Vitor Belfort at UFC 108, which is scheduled for Jan. 2, 2010. “The Spider” underwent a minor surgical procedure to remove bone fragments that had been giving his elbow trouble after many years of fighting. Like team mate Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, the recovery time is very quick and “The Phenom” should have his chance to do what no man in the UFC has done before him: Defeat Anderson Silva.
