Cro Cop is an amazing fighter but the size difference between him and silvia could really destroy his style, he is patient and likes to take people out with the head kicks but since he is taller he will have to be closer to connect and if he is too close silvia will be able to strike and keep him back, I want him to beat the shit out of silvia but there has been talk of him cutting to 205, he would kill liddell and completely dominate that division. What do the rest of you think about the size difference being a major problem and the possibility of him cutting weight to compete at light heavyweight?

Yeah I agree a guy that can kick as hard to the head as Cro Cop could might very easily kick harder to the body. Snapping side shot in to Sylvia's ribs would make him keel over a bit and THEN, now at 6'1", Sylvia gets head kicked to hell.

I'm not as in depth of Cro Cop's record as some of you other guys. I'm sure he's probably fought somebody around that height, any clues?

I don't think they are purposely trying to get rid of champs. They bring in new talent that happens to be champ material. This makes for exciting fights.

Exactly. They want consistent belt holders. Good point

Cro cop is a good striker. He's nice with the hands as well. And he's more mobile than Sylvia. They thing that concerns me with Sylvia is that he always comes up with a good game plan for his opponents and executes it well. I could see him having some kind of plan to neutrulize Cro's leg kicks and making it a pure boxing match.

I think they want GSP and Chuck as champs. Everyone else they dont care about. They love GSp cuz he is young and brings in a ton of fans from Canada, and they love Chuck because he is the UFC poster boy therfore must have a belt.




Mancrushes
1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP

Not only do current champs bring in fans so do new fighters, plus every time a long standing champ defends the title, for instance Chuck.. everyone tunes in even those who don't like chuck to see if he is going to finally be beat, Its win win for the company.
