I kinda thought beating Gonzaga in impressive fashion was somewhat remotely impressive

the problem is now days it's hard to back Cro Cop in any fight, he just feels like a shot fighter.

Schaub is a hard fighter to really judge, whenever a fighter is early on in their career it's difficult to judge their potential (you would expect them to keep growing as fighters)

He has shown a vunerability already, he was KO'd it pretty heavy fashion by Nelson.

They say the last thing a fighters his his punch/power, Cro Cop's timing might be off compared with his prime and his ablity to slip and take a blow may have decreased but no doubt he still has knock out power in his hands and feet so by that notion against a fighter who is not (yet anyway) considered top draw you have to at least give him a punchers chance to win.

The problem is if you look to boxing for a perfect example, you can see the immensely talented but past his prime Roy Jones fighting Calazghe a few years back. In the first round Jones caught Joe with a perfect left hook which knocked the Welsh man down, Jones still had the punch right? but it days gone by that left hook would have been instantly followed by a right cross and another left hand (uppercut or hook) and Calzaghe would not have gotten up to win the fight as he did.

So I figure even if Crop Cop catches Schaub he might not have the reactions and quickness to capatilise on such a momment and he may still drop the decision.

I have to agree that a Schaub decision victory is the most likely, but I will not write Cro Cop off in this fight as I do believe he still has the ability to defeat this level of opponent.

Wow even Cro Cops English is getting worse, as he clearly meant "Shaub won't need 3 rounds for me"

I'd rather be the guy getting better each fight, than the guy who hasn't been much of anything in 5 years.

9 fights in....his career is just getting started.

So because CC has had more fights and won some big ones century's ago...he should win? Talk about holding on to the past.

Schaub won't need three rounds to finish Cro Cop, which sucks because Cro Cop's a good guy but watching the Mir fight any and every trace of the old Cro Cop was gone.

Maybe we'll get a novelty fight between him and Big Nog at Rio, but I don't see how Schaub loses, younger, faster, probably stronger, and clearly a lot more hungrier.

Schaub leaves him unconcious on the ground in the second.

I think Mirko is living in the past. His not the wrecker he used to be. I mean, you got KO'd by Mir.

I do hope Mirko takes this via KO though.

I think Grabriel broke him and Overeem crushed what was left of his spirit.
This is exactly how I feel about Cro Cop. I've lost hope a looooooong time ago.

Cro Cop died long time ago. Now we have only Mirko Filipović, nothing more - no spirit, no desire and no victories... Just look at the Barry fight which was all about knockdowns and hugs like they're long-time buddies or something. WTF? There's time for that after a fight. Unfortunately, Mirko has become too soft. The "battle" with Mir was also sad to watch.
