He sees the Cro Cop fight coming up , doesn't think much as he's waiting for "The Showdown" between Silva and Lutter and goes to take a piss. Suddenly while in the bathroom he hears yells coming from the living room. "Oh shit!!!! Yo Fred you gotta get in here now and see this shit! Oh my god..." he runs into the living room with his fly open just in time to see Mirko kicking the shit out of Eddie with the crowd going nuts in the background. I see a lot of hits on Cro Cop on Google Video, You tube, Daily Motion, etc... the following day.
Hysterical and definitely true. I train with a lot of people who just watch the UFC and when I explain to them what CroCop does it just doesn't compute. There's never been a fighter like him in the UFC, just like there's never been a guy like Rampage.

You have to remember that Rampage is Chuck's only loss that he hasn't avenged yet, this is the only thing they can use (if they can't use footage of PRIDE) to bring in PPV's. Taking into account the fight footage for these 2 is mostly from PRIDE then there isn't really much that they can use to promote Crocop. Plus, knowledgable MMA fans will already want to see him anyway and his 1st fights in UFC will speak for themselves.

This has happened to me countless times! I even ripped my stomach to bits one night when I misjudged the length of worktop in my kitchen when I heard people shouting, although that night they were only shouting to see me running through lol bastards

Dude, get Tivo or something. That's what I have and I record the whole thing so I can watch it a couple of times, especially if I know one or two of the fights is going be a war.
