Well 75 is going to be on Spike TV, then 76 is like two weeks after that because its a PPV. It all just depends on the dates UFC can book events at certain places and when they can air it around other fight dates, or WWE PPV dates. If they do all that right, the PPV buys are really good for them.

Why does everyone think Kongo will lose?

I don't get the mentality that Cheick Kongo is going to get destroyed when he steps into the octagon against Crocop. People bring up that Kongo sucks on the ground...so? He gets taken down easily...so what? I highly doubt that Mirko is going to take him down (Mirko is nothing special on the ground) and even if he does, Kongo is good enough not to get caught in anything. He fought Assuerio Silva (who is a BJJ brown belt and better than Mirko on the ground) for 3 rounds at UFC 70, and while we did see that he is easily taken down, he defended enough submissions and worked hard enough not to be held down for 15 minutes. If (and thats a big if) Mirko takes him down, Kongo is good enough to not get submitted.

So the fight is most likely going to be standing. Mirko isn't that dominant there either. Granted, he probably is more the more skilled of the fighters standing, but Kongos strikes are CRISP. Watch his fights at UFC 61 & 62. He shows real nice power and accuracy, and he might just have the advantage over Mirko in the clinch with his lethal knees. Factor in his reach advantage and his massive size and I serioulsly think that Kongo has a chance to beat Mirko.

I'm not saying Kongo will win. Infact, I think that there is a really good chance that the more experienced and powerful (?) Crocop will knock him out. But it wont be such a steamroll imo, all you Crocop fans who say that he's going to knock him out in 10 seconds need to take a step back and re-watch Gonzaga vs Crocop.

I am sure you were saying the same things back then...

I don't know if you saw the post of his training regimine but he's coming back with a vengance after that loss to Napao. I don't think kongo is going ot be able to handle his riddum. And it wouldn't surpise me at all if he took it to the ground because Kongo sucks ass down there. Sure Kongo has a height and reach over CC but that didn't stop Couture from beating Sylvia

I think if Kongo stays in Cro Cop's face he might possibly win. Cro Cop kind of falls apart when that happens.

Yeah but it stopped CroCop from beating Hoost three times. And Hoost and Kongo have very similar fighting styles. Kongo could easily beat CroCop. He is more athletic and a better kickboxer. He is just so young and I don't know if the camp he trains with properly prepares him for fights. He hasn't been overly impressive in MMA yet. But, this could be more a kickbox match then MMA and if that is the case get ready to be disappointed by CroCop again. You thought Napao's elbows affected his game wait til you see what Kongo's knees can do to it.

Good points by everybody. My logic is very simple.

Cro Cop = Good

Angry Cro Cop = Deadly

thats my only reasoning. Im a man. Brain no make complicate.

from what i've seen of cro-cops training. I think he very well may try to take him down. Either way you're right Kongo will not be a walk in the park, but look at it this way. No matter who you are, facing a pissed off cro-cop is probably going to hurt if not knock you out, even if your name is mark hunt.

I've said it from the start, Kongo has a legimate chance at winning this fight. But yeah, Crocop is pissed and that's scary so I'd bank on him, could be a close fight though
