^ iron man your text sucks on anything but 800x600. and diego has already fought parisyan, where have you been? i think gsp vs diego would be a contender for fight of the year. itd be an explosive bloody two way ass kicking, with gsp coming out victorious doesnt realistically sound like liddel is gonna be going up to fight cro cop anytime soon.

Top 5 fav. fighters (in order)

1. GSP
2. Franklin
3. Lesnar
4. Forrest
5. Big Nog

If this were to happen shouldnt Cro Cop fight at LWH to make it a bit more fair?

You're just a cook...

I think Mirko Crocop should move DOWN to Light Heavyweight to fight Chuck Liddell, that would make it more fair. Since Crocop is 220 lbs, he could easily make weight. Then again, Liddell walks around at 220 anyway so I guess it doesn't matter. Crocop is a nightmare fight for Liddell, Liddell doesn't like to keep his hands up (can't blame him after fighting Tito, Horn and Babalu) and that will make his temple an easy bulls-eye target for his left leg.

NO, I think Liddell is actually a bad matchup for CroCop. Liddell is an excellent kickboxer I can see CroCop sticking that leg up there and Chuck just reaching in and smashing his face. CroCop is the better kickboxer, I know that, but Chuck is not really that far behind at all, and if it were a kickboxing match in K-1 I'd be saying the same thing, Chuck poses a problem for CroCop.

Chuck won't be keeping his hands down while he fights CroCop. He is a kickboxer, he knows what he needs to do. He has KOed or beaten some badass standup fighters like Allistair Overeem, Guy Mezger, Jose Landi-Jones, Vitor Belfort, Vernon White, Murillo Bustamante, Amar Suloev....that's a pretty impressive list of victims if you ask me. Chuck has excellent timing and of course power and even if he looks sloppy to some people he actually does have very good but different technique. He's very accurate, and every punch is thrown the correct way, even during a barrage he always puts his lower body into every single punch.

CroCop winds up for that kick, Chuck gets his blocking hand ready and loads up his patented overhand right counterpunch and nails CroCop right in the chin and follows up with a barrage of punches on the ground to get a KO victory.

Wow pretty good interview. He touched on several key topics, including other organizations and the video game. I personally don't care to see Liddell vs CroCop because Mirko will beat him. I'm more interested in Mirko vs HW Champion and Liddell vs Rampage. I want Matt Lindland in the UFC and with all these aquisitions that the UFC are making, they can make another division maybe featherweight. If the UFC did allow women MMA fighters, the first fighter to sign would have to be Gina Carano. This summer/fall should be interesting with Mirko's title shot, Iceman/Rampage rematch, and Ortiz fighting White although I'd rather watch Ortiz/Evans. This boxing match is kinda like a Pride freak match.

well boys and girls i'm a member of mmaweekly and today is tuesday and i just finished listening to the archived radio show with Dana White from last night. I read over the notes and Anton got this from someone who took DAMN good notes. Everything up there was said by Dana. Even quoted him once or twice. I heard the interview myself. Good interview.

**EDIT** Dand said, and I quote, "They told me he (referring to Mirko) can't make 205." He never said who "they" were but it seemed he meant Mirko's camp. Then he said that Chuck wants to fight anyone and that he would move up to fight Mirko. Never said it was a for sure thing, never gave a date or nothing, or that they even talked about it. He just said Chuck told him i'll move up in weight to fight Mirko. Quit whining and jumping to conclusions unless you hear the entire interview for yourself. As good of a summary of notes they are on the interview, they are a "summary". not word for word, so don't put words into peoples mouth and twist and turn things so far in your own mind that all of a sudden they're true. geez....

I'm still skeptical on this CC v Chuck thing...though I've read in few Chuck interviews that he's considering moving up; but I won't keep my hopes high. I've learned my lesson from the wandy vs. chuck buzz...These 2 fights needs to happen though, ASAP before Chuck reaches the end of his peak.

Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...
