This fight will actually be a tough fight for Cro-Cop. Gabriel has a very thick bone structure which is why he weighs as much as he does. He's fit and strong with a thick neck which gives him favor in the "not so easy to be knocked out department". He doesn't have a glass jaw and his only lose was to Fabricio Werdum who is no scrub.
The other factor is style Garbriel has a really solid BJJ ground game and is a solid shooter and has good takedown technique. His stand up is decent and has a good transition from a G&P style to his submissions.
I'm going to love watching this fight. I love watching Gabriel fight and the same for Cro-Cop. I give favor to Cro-Cop but he has a lot of work a head of him. This will not be a Cro-Cop highlight reel and if he thinks he can try to make it one he's going to end up with another number in his lose column.
