Cro Cop for Heavyweight Belt

Dana White has stated that Cro Cop will fight the winner of Sylvia/Couture (assuming he beats Gonzaga). That will be an awesome fight whoever is involved.

Glad to see the UFC is stepping up to the plate with the best quality fighters available.

Hopefully we get to see the high kick, though, because UFC fans who don't know PRIDE NEED to see it.

Gabriel Gonzaga is no stepping stone...

This could really be CC's downfall, but it is up to him. I think it was obvious that CC didn't come in the best shape of his life for Eddie Sanchez and he shouldn't do that again vs GOnzaga. If he makes a habit of it, sooner or later he's gonna lose. I pray CC comes in tip top shape and then demolishes Gonzaga.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Yeah, it sucked that the fight ended so soon. Sapp was throwing much harder shots, he just couldn't connect. But, Sapp in the center of the ring, stalking Cro Cop as he ran in circles was funny.

The little jab, that was mentioned, was actually a straight left that broke Sapps cheekbone. It was set up by a kick to the ribs that bruised 2 of them.

Cro-cop "ran" in circles to get position on Sapp, setting up the kick and punch that ended it. Sapp looses 1/2 his stamina climbing into the ring, Mirko and his corner knew it.

As for his next fight, it'll be interesting to see his sprawl defence in the UFC. In pride guys were wary of a knee to the head coming in, no so in the UFC. Still his takedown D is remarkable. He'll probably use low and side kicks to weaken the legs and TKO in the 2nd with the uppercut.
