Couture vs. Cro Cop??

Okay, at first I know it sounds retarded and one-sided...but if you look at Kevin Randallman getting on the inside of CC's kicks and utilizing the takedown, what do you think the possibility of COuture utilizing the same strategy would be?


In any case, what do you think a particularly effective strategy would be against CC?




Atop of that, looking into how the Iceman chopped down Couture, do you think that strategy of getting on the inside would be effective AT ALL?

1. He who spares the bad injures the good

2. To compete is to live, but in order to fight you must first begin by digging two graves.

3. No good deed shall go unpunished.

Every fighter has a strength its the level of ability to use that strength that makes the difference, yes Couture would have a chance and i would not say he could not win that fight however i think Crocops speed would have a major influence on a 3 rounder in a championship fight well who knows?
I would imagine Couture looking to feint and get in quick and for Crocop to kick the hell out of Coutures legs, i feel that the leg kick against Couture is the most effective initial strike that would benefit anyone that fights him and lets say this Cro Cop can kick.

I think Cro Cop probably learned a hard lesson from the first Randleman fight, and I doubt he would make the same mistake, even against a more creative fighter like Randy.
Besides, Randleman's win looks pretty flukey in hindsight, given the way Cro Cop subbed him so fast in the rematch and in light of both fighters' records since then.
I'd have to go with Mirko over Randy in this one. Randy might stand a chance if he is as aggressive as Fedor was, but more likely he'll be forced to chase Mirko and get knocked out for his troubles.

Randy has a chance. Everyone has a chance of course,but yeah Randy only chance is to avoid the big strike and to get CroCop down and control the fight on the ground.

this is how it would end,
in the fourth minute of the second round.
"randy, randy wake up man, you just got KTFO."


The big difference between the randleman cro cop 1 and coutoure fighting is that randleman was a machine, in amazing shape, much younger and stronger. Coutoure with all respect was an amazing fighter, but he is way past his time, and i feel bad for him because he is gunna go out like shamrock. he is gunna lose to tim (i think tim's gunna have a good fight,and perform for the first time in awhile) and he is gunna get beheaded if he fights cro cop.

Randy doesn't have the power Randleman has. Those hits he put on Crocop were hard and landed nicely. Randy wouldn't be able to do that

Randleman hit Mirko with an awesome punch. That's what got Mirko down. Randy would not be able to take Mirko down. Mirko has the best take down defense in the game. And, Randy would not be able to stand with him. Yeah, no shit.

Every one can win every one. But the question is, how big are the chances to win? Randleman is not really a competitor for CC, but Randleman take the chance. CC is alone guilty for the match result. At this time, CC was very active in politic and makes a crap movie. You can't bee concentrated on three things at the same time, and you can't bee good in three so non similar things.

But I thing CC has learned some things.
