Cro Cop doesn't have personality?

"Right kick, hospital; left kick, cemetary."

Plenty of personality to me.

When CroCop kicks Sanchez in the head, he'll steal the PPV!

They gave it to Anderson Silva after one. I think that if CroCop comes in and decimates Eddie Sanchez then they might give him the shot right after Couture, but I'd like to give him one or two more fights first.

CroCop doesn't seem to care to much if he gets the shot today or way later, he knows that if he keeps winning eventually he'll get the opportunity.

No all UFC fans know who Fedor is. I was talking with some of the guys I train with who are pretty much strictly UFC guys (and these guys are martial artists) and they don't really know that much about Fedor. They know him by reputation, but not everyone has seen a highlight reel or a fightape yet.

Oh well, I believe it will be more fun to see these newbee mma fans see how good he is rather than hearing about it! I've been hyping him up with all my buddies and he wont be a stranger for long.

I doubt guys like cro cop and Rampage really have the title as their main goal, they want to get paid the big money, signing a contract that keeps them fighting and making good money doing it.

So if they don't get a title shot right away, whatever, as long as the money is flowing.

You say this as if I give a shit dude. I got more important things to worry about than why America is stupid or ****ed up. Get off your high horse before you go Chris Reeves on us, dipshit.

Chuck Liddell is the UFC's biggest name and the guy that beat him is rampage, they have to set up the rematch by pumping rampages tires. Chuck by TKO first round

Ey, pt447 is cool.

You know, I have thought of Mirko as the 'second best' as most people that know Fedor and Mirko do. But, now when I think about it, what makes Fedor better? First off, records don't mean anything. Anybody can have an off day or get lucky. And the most important fight is always your next fight. Yes, Fedor did beat Mirko. Couture beat Liddell and Liddell went on to beat Couture twice. Barnett beat Nog and then Nog beat Barnett. There are many examples. Fighters train all year round and usually they continue to get better. The fight against Fedor was in late August of 2005 and we are now in 2007. There are guys that Fedor has had trouble with that Mirko has embarrased. So, really, who is to say that Mirko isn't the best in the world? Until they were to fight again, you couldn't really say and even then luck or bad luck could be on somebodies side. You know?

Also, people should not under look Sanchez. Yes, he is going up against a World Class striker but why should people doubt Sanchez? You heard the man, when he connects with his right hand, whoever they are, they go down. Left high kick, right hand, same shit. A punch is a punch, a kick is a kick and at the end of the day Mirko does outclass Sanchez. But, Sanchez might have a head like Kazuyuki Fujita's.. You know, whatever.. Mirko has been knocked out before. Do they hit as hard as Sanchez? I don't know. Does Sanchez hit as hard as them? I don't know. Has Sanchez been knocked out before? Perhaps, I don't know. Who knows? Nobody really does. And they're the little things you need to think about. I think it should be interesting.
