I think there's a great chance that George will win that fight Judoka. The Aussie's should see one of their guys win! Not so much for Perosh though. I'm afraid he might be in trouble.

Yeah, I have picked Joe but think George has a great chance, i think he will be a contender in future.

I like Perosh, but I think he may be in trouble too.

Still, it is a large step, the Australian record in the UFC is 5-12 I think. Not the best but the sport is progressing.

What, is that Elvis Sinosic's record in the UFC? I know it's terrible, he sure isn't helping that record at all.

It's weird, he is actually a pretty well rounded fighter, the UFC just usually makes him fight tough guys.

His record: 1-6 in the UFC. That's pathetic.

So without Elvis, Aussie's are really 4-6, maybe they should just stop letting him fight in the UFC?

Do you have any idea on how Elvis was injured? Must have been a late training session mishap?
Ah man to tell you the truth I'm not exactly sure atm, just that it was his left shoulder which he had injured before only recently (remember him in a sling about 4 months ago). Once I find out for sure I'll let ya know.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Elvis has Machida but he always brings the fight.

I was excited as Haseman and Sinosic are the two biggest pioneers in Australian MMA I guess.

If people didn't know, Haseman fought Tanner many years ago in the UFC. Tanner made remarks on how tough haseman was.

It wouldn't have been fair to not have Elvis fight, He has been leading to fight to have MMA accepted in Australia for a while.

Without Elvis I doubt it would be in Australia right now, He was suggesting it years ago and pushed it very hard this whole time.

CONFIRMED - Rothwell out of Cro Cop fight

Ben Rothwell has dropped out of his UFC 110 matchup against Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic due to illness, according to an announcement made Thursday on the UFC’s Web site.

Anthony Perosh will replace Rothwell in the heavyweight bout, which takes place Saturday in Sydney, Australia.

The UFC also announced that Elvis Sinosic suffered a shoulder injury that has forced the cancellation of his bout against Chris Haseman.

I will admit I am not happy I wanted Cro Cop to destroy Ben Rothwell and prove he is back, not some guy I never heard of before.

No Offence, and don't go mad at me CC lovers. but I have 0 interest in this fight whatsoever.

CC is going to get a Highlight KO and all the CC fanboys are going to jump around in ecstasy lol.

Proves nothing, pointless fight,not that it's CC's fault.

I was just really looking forward to watching CC lose (calm down CC fans, I know what you lot are like!)


Big Thanks to KryOnicle for the sig!

OMG!! IM SO HAPPY.!


WE MIGHT SEE CroCop get ONE MORE LHK VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSS

No way he was gonna kick Ben's head off(Though he was going to win) But now there is hope!!.

Elvis Sinosic's record sucks BUT the dude has one of the toughest UFC fight career.

Loss Michael Bisping
Loss Alessio Sakara
Loss Forrest Griffin
Loss Renato Sobral
Loss Evan Tanner
Loss Tito Ortiz
Win Jeremy Horn

He beat a "good" Jeremy horn. The only other fight he "maybe" should have won is Alessio Sakara. Im sure if they would put him in with an avereage fighter for once that his record would be better.

no offense to Perosh, but I think its safe to say that if CC loses this he is pretty much done for good, atleast in ufc.
