CC isn't knocking anybody out. Based on the HL vids that's been floating around youtube for years, yes. Based on the reality of his most recent performances, no.
CC was my favorite fighter in Pride. I was rooting for him over Fedor when they fought, so I'm definitely no hater, but I don't see where predictions of LHK KO's are coming from. If people are saying Big Nog was a shell of who he was in Pride, then CC is I don't know, a shed butterfly cocoon.
Nothing would make my day then seeing CC back to old form or even just respectable form, but lets be serious, in which UFC fight has he shown that kind of killer instinct & tenacity? Or even a decently executed/timed LHK? Gonzaga did more then just knock him out, but he seemed to have knocked out his fighting spirit.
Apart from that, I hope Wandy and Big Nog represents.
