Chuck Liddell vs. Cro cop

I have said multiple times in these forums that the reason Mirko came to the UFC was to be a double title holder, that is about the only thing that would lure him away from PRIDE and Fedor. After Joe Rogan's comment last night, I believe that even more!!

At the end of the pay per view before they closed, after going on about what a god Cro cop was again like he did during the official announcment of rampage and cro-cop, he said with this shit eating grin on his face that Mirko can fight in the 205lb class too.

Only a UFC-only fan would think Cro Cop isn't worthy of the praise Rogan was giving him....

Rogan realizes that alot of the UFC fans don't know who he was and considering they had no footage to show of him for the Feb PPV commercial it was up to him to excite people about him coming over.

Its a good think I am a big PRIDE fan AND think all the respect Joe Rogan gave Mirko was well deserved. I think US and UFC fans who have not seen Cro cop fight will be in disbelief of his striking ability. I totally agree with all the hype and opinions given by Rogan. Mirko is a god.

His own website says Cro-Cop is 218lbs. He could VERY easily cut down to 205 and murder anyone he needed to.

Don't sweat it, given everyone's black and white opinions on this site, it could have gone either way.
When I first heard this rumor a month or two ago from a friend, I was like a kid on christmas morning. Its a shame in order for the UFC to legitimize their divisions they have to take away from PRIDE. I believe PRIDE coming to the US so many times in 2007 will help them alot, both organizations need to get together and work on some "dream fight" deals. Cro Cop Vs the Iceman is one of the fights that true MMA fans druel over and this is the first step in that direction. The UFC only fans that you referr to are saying to themselves "what the hell kinda of Name is Cro Cop?"
I think its so funny that PRIDE fans seem to be so in tune to the UFC fighters, but the UFC fans seem to think that the PRIDE fighters are second rate. Those UFC only fans may very well soon be saying to themselves "You mean this guy actually LOST to fighters in PRIDE !!"
