Cro Cop...

Is the UFC keeping him from the spotlight on purpose?
Do they want the entrance to be the first time they (The Fans) truely see Cro Cop?

I mean if so I understand, but the Press Con. was last night and there was no Cro Cop. Rampage was there, and I believe they are hyping Rampage for the Chuck fight, if he wins against Eastmen. Thats why its been all Rampage in interviews and so forth.

Eddie was there tho and talked about the the fight, but no Cro Cop.


So does the UFC want fans to hype Cro Cop themselves?...
I'm having trouble understanding why they are so quiet about Cro Cop.

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

Think about it: You fear what you can't see and what you don't know. UFC fans will eat that shit up.

WAR CRO COP!

Fedor sleeps with a night light. Not because Fedor is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Fedor.

Since he is traveling from far maybe he he didn't arrive in time for tv show or interviews, this morning they still didn't have a Crocop pre-fight interview and everyone else has. But then again, Neither has Sanchez.

Cro cop doesnt need any advertisement or interviews, his left high kick speaks for itself.

I know Cro Cop doesn't need to be hyped. But lets face it the UFC is the kings of hype. They hype fights that have no reason being hyped.

Its just wierd to me that they arent doing it. I know why they arent, when the music hits (hopefully duran duran) and he makes his way to the cage... with the UFC declaring him "The most feared fighter in MMA" The typical drunken UFC fan will be eager to see who this man his.

I think they (UFC) decided that Cro Cop needs to be hidden from the public, so when he lands that LHK to the head...

The world of UFC... not MMA (they know cro cop) will roar and finally see what the rest of the world already knows.



Idk tho, its just wierd the master of hype Dana White is keeping rather quiet about Cro Cop till the actually fight itself happens.



... Dont get my wrong, I'm glad, Mirko doesnt need US press bothering him before what will surely be a ground-breaking moment of the UFC.

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

We all know Cro Cop BUT the UFC needs to answer why the lack of positive press to date, is it because the contract has taken up so much time and was in question up to the date of the fight?
It is counterproductive not to advertise fully Cro Cop as there are more and more new fans coming to watch MMA and would no doubt pay the ppv if they knew more.

Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
