What if Mirko and Rampage doesn't live up to the hype?

What if thier UFC debut turns into something like the Heath Herring vs. Jake O'Brian? What kind of impact will this have on these two guys and how pi$$ed will the UFC management be?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

boring fights happen. they'll have to rebound and have good showings the next time. but really, both the guys arent going to have bad fights. maybe one, but not both. so it wouldnt be the worst thing to ever happen. now if one loses, that wouldnt be good.

I don't know, I felt any upset was bound to happen during this PPV event.

Initially, it would have been:

Anderson vs. Lutter
St. Pierre vs. Serra
Cro Cop vs. Sanchez
Jackson vs. Eastman

These 4 fights were all lopsided, so I was expecting an upset for at least one of them. But since St. Pierre dropped out, I am not sure if there may be one ... it still may be possible.

We will all be saying I wish they brought Wandy and Fedor over instead. And we will be calling Dana an idiot for getting Crocop instead of Fedor. I guarantee it!!

Anything is possible but I think everything will go as planned.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

I know there are some Heath Herring fans out there so don't get offended but I just do not think Herring is in Cro Cop or Rampage's league in the overall scheme of things.

I'm a Heath Herring fan and I have to say, DUH! There's a reason why these guys are in the top 10 in their respective weight classes, they are awesome fighters. Herring is great, but he's not like these guys.

Anyway, I expect things to go exactly as planned. CroCop and Rampage should beat the living hell out of their respective opponents. If either loses it will probably be Rampage. Eastman is a very experienced opponent and very underrated. No disrespect to Eddie Sanchez, but he is neither of those two.
