If Sylvia beat CroCop then people "should" say that Tim was underrated and alot of people would need to quit bashing the big fellow. Of course he needs to be aggresive in winning. Since thats a big issue with many on these boards and in the MMA World. Not really with me,but with the majority.

If Tim wins it would shake up the MMA World and I'm sure those people who hate UFC and love PRIDE would have many excuses. Those of us who love both would be entertained.

If Tim beats Cro Cop, that would be quite the upset for the big oaf. Unfortunatley for him, he's going down very hard. Have you ever heard or felt 265 pounds of dead weight hit the canvas from 7 feet up? Me neither, but I bet it's an impressive sight.

UFC has also shown there dedication to CroCop by putting him in there top 3 of paid fighters. He's paid more than Matt Hughes. Only IceMan makes more money. Ortiz and GSP are up there also.

Thats a big investment when you consider all the PPVs and DVDs that Hughes and someone like Couture has sold for the UFC.

IT was a great move by UFC,so dont misunderstand me,but UFC definitely gave this man the money.

Its possible Fedor could come to the UFC, but I dont see it happening anytime soon.
After Mirko runs thru the HW division in the UFC, the UFC will have more money that ever cuz Mirko's gonna bring in more fans because of his deadily KO's.


If Fedor keeps running thru Pride, he himself may want to come to UFC like Cro Cop, to challenge himself.

My 12 fighter army is as follows:

Dan Henderson
Mac Danzig
Mirko "the man" Filipovic
Anderson Silva
Fedor and Aleks
Mark Hunt
BJ Penn
Q. Rampage Jackson
Karo Parisyan
John Fitch
Frank Shamrock

Best post ever.



I personally think Fedor will finish out his career in Pride unless they head into problems. Fedor just seems like a Pride guy through and through and i couldnt see him in the UFC.

Why? Because the UFC has better heavyweights? Nope, don't think so.

Crocop will probably leave the UFC after his contract expires, Champion or not. He would get sick of the lack-of competition in the UFC as well as wanting his rematch with Fedor.

Exactly - Dana is no idiot, he knows that to become No1 in MMA he has to 'cut the head off the snake' - and in reference to Pride that is done by luring away Fedor with a fat ass contract..... Fedor goes, Pride dies and UFC is No1.

There isnt a single fighter alive whos head cant be turned by some green, Fedor knows he has Pride HWs whipped and so he may well want to come to UFC for fame and fortune and the chance to wipe the floor with what the UFC has to offer.
