a step up from eddie sanchez, but in the figurative skyscraper of the HW division, gonzaga is still on the first flight.

easy KO for the cop.

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.

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

Mirko never plans on making it a highlight reel, I really think he couldn't care less about it. And saying that "this will not be a highlight reel" knockout is difficult to justify since I think pretty much no though Crocop vs. Wandy would be a highlight knockout...but we all saw what happened with that.

With that said Gonzaga is a decent fighter, defintely a step up from eddie sanchez but I still see a knockout late in the 1st or 2nd round.

You say that but his fight with Eddie Sanchez was exactly that. He was head hunting him the whole time. Often during the fight Cro-Cop threw head kicks that were not very well timed and often weak and misplace. Much of it was do to him *trying* to get the head kick knockout rather than take his time and set it up with combos and distance games.

I think we are making a big deal out of this fight...Gonzaga doesn't stand a chance other than the "punchers chance" I see this as a good chance to double my points.

Throw Bob Sapp in there for entertainment value. Cro Cop ran from him.
