Good job, choper_bm. Thanks very much.
Yeah, that would be awesome...lol. And Crocop is a nonsense kind of guy so entering with Pride Theme is a big deal. I know a lot of guys would try to play that down especially people in Sherdog.com they're the worst people on the internet...intelegent-wise. With him entering under Pride Theme, his basically sending a message to the people who followed him for long time and Pride Fans in Japan. That he represents Pride and where his coming from and where his heart is. And his Manager in Pride Ken Imai was also at his UFC debut...so yeah.
And the only reason he signed with the UFC is because they are popular in America and he wants to also represent "the Croats" in America (I know you guys want sources but I'm just getting this from memory, these qoutes are legit because their from Croatian newspappers and magazines, Bodog offered him more money than UFC.
And on one of the article in a magazine. He qouted "just because I fight in the UFC, it doesn't mean over for Pride"
Anyways to make this short...He wants to show where his coming from and where his heart is...Pride. I know a lot of UFC hardcores and gonna ***** or "BOOO" me. LOL.
