Why Is The UFC Building Up Rampage, And Not Cro Cop?

Ufc has signed two big names in rampage and crocop. However there has been hardly any mention of crocop yet on their website whereas there are loads of articles relating to rampage. Is this cause rampage is American? and more people know who he is. Crocops picture has not even been added. Surely this is the biggest signing in ufc history so why is there no publicity for crocop? or is it they want him to introduce himself in the octagon?

Well, if that's what you think, I would say because Jackson is more well known. And it will be much more exciting when Mirko kicks Sanchez in the ear if people arn't expecting it.

Rampage also has "personality" to say the least. If he puts together a good string of victories he'll be huge. They also have no access to any cro cop highlights, and the average ufc fan probably doesn't no two shits about him.

I think almost every MMA fan knows Filipovic. Is this really possible, that so many UFC fans does not know who he is? I'm wondering do Sanches know him haha, maybe not :P He will know him after he will wake up from sleep that Mirko's left foot will put him into :P

-Sanchez took the fight because we was thrilled to fight someone of Mirko's caliber. He is obviously very familiar with Mirko.
-Mirko has personality galore, you can watch some of his "childish" stunts on you tube. He pulled a prank a Mauro Ranallo and made fun of Bas Rutten. There are many other videos.
-They talk about Rampage because of Chucks undefeated streak and Quinton being the last guy to beat him, the fact that Rampage is an American and because they are able to show his hilites from WFA (due to the takeover UFC has the legal rights to showcase his WFA fights)
-They are worried that Rampage might fail and not be succesful in the UFC so they are trying to get as many ticket and pay-per-view sales as possible; while CroCop is almost what you call a "sure thing" to become the champ.

i couldn't care less. when CC enters the octagon, he'll change UFC history forever... i just can't wait to see them never mention his PRIDE history. Are they going to bill CC as the biggest UFC find of all time? ****ing stupid UFC. If Dana was a reall MMA fan, not just a fan of his wallet only, then he'd do something to unify MMA and bring out it's worldwide audience. if anything, it might open the eyes of the athletic commissions in america...

Sanchez, along with almost all fighters in the world, has a good knowledge of the top 10, and he knows that CroCop is number 2. He hasn't been nearly as cocky as he was going into the Neto fight. He has said that if he gets the opportunity he will KO CroCop with the right hand. I don't know how much he knows about CroCop's history, but CroCop hasn't dropped his hands since the first Randleman fight.

There are alot of American fans who don't know who CroCop is, and it's not uncommon because he doesn't fight on cards that are publicized in the US. But he's really a fighter made for what Americans like to see, those huge KOs.

The UFC has the money to pay for Fedor, he's not working for Bodog for as much as the UFC is paying Chuck, but they know that Americans don't have the same appreciation for Fedor's submissions that the Japanese audiences do. This is why the probably went after CroCop instead.

America likes a fighter who can KTFO his opponents. It's why like they liked guys like Tank Abbott when the sport was starting out. It's why they liked Sylvia at the beginning of his career. It's why now they like guys like Chuck, Anderson Silva and GSP. America likes to watch people getting punched in the face. They aren't nearly as into the ground game.

I just want to hear the crowds reaction after CroCop kicks Sanchez in the head and puts him out. With any luck, it will come faster than Anderson Silva's KO of Leben. Then the UFC can start touting the guy and showing off what he can do.

Well said. Still I can see the american fans and media being pretty ignorent, probably giving Mirko an Ivan Drago like label or image. I mean assuming Randy wins the hw title, guarenteed it will be billed "Captain America" vs the foreigner when they face off.
