Mirko just made his UFC debut and you are mad that he is fighting cans. Yes, there was alot to be desired on the part of Eddie Sanchez, but he spent the whole fight backpedalling. I would too if I was stepping in with the #2 heavyweight in the f*cking world.

I don't see Mirko fighting a can next time. I see him fighting Gonzaga, who I like, Vera, who I hate, or Arlovski, who's a savage. I do think that the most likely of these matchups is probably Gonzaga, and CroCop will kill him. But honestly, CroCop will kill anybody in the UFC heavyweight division. I doesn't matter if it's Gabriel Gonzaga, Eddie Sanchez or Tim Sylvia, he's going to make them all look like cans. He's that good a striker.

Anyway, the next fight will, hopefully, be more exciting. These UFC fighters can't *****foot around like Eddie did. If they do, I hope CroCop leaves they're head lodged in the fence.

It's too bad that it's not Tim Sylvia vs. Cro Cop on March 4th. I don't care to see Mirko destroy somebody else. I love watching Fedor fight as well but I have no desire to see him destroy Lindland. Oh well, Tim will get to bludgeon Mirko soon enough and then there will be no more excuses for the Tim haters.

First, i'd like to state that i think that there is no contest for Mirko in the UFC heavy weight division. With that out of the way read the rest of my message as something other than being against Mirko's abilities.

I think the reason why they are throwing trash at Mirko's direction is because Dana wants to get Tim the **** out. Now we all know there's a puncher's chance for any fighter, and that percentage increases depending on the skill level of that fighter. Had Dana gave Mirko Andrei or Randy, their chances of defeating Mirko would be greater than this nobody.

That's not taking anything away from Mirko, but Dana wants Tim to get out for sure, and he doesn't want, as Eastman said "a monkey wrench" to interrupt his plans for Tim's decapitation.

That's my opinion anyway.

He's not going to drop weight to fight Liddell. He didn't drop anyweight to fight Silva, if you want to fight Mirko, you have to make weight. He is a HW and will stay that way for his entire career. If Liddell wants his ass beaten so bad, he should move up because Mirko will not or cannot make 205.

I just love watching Mirko KO Wanderlei.

Every single moment of that fight, from Wandy's homosexual entrance, to the 5 minute break for his eye, to the beautiful knockout. That show was great.

And now he gets to do it to another dumbass LHW - Mr. Liddell.

Why are these fighters so dumb?

everyone on these forums know who Mirko is.. but u gotta realize most of America doesnt. They needed a welcome to the UFC fight so everyone can be familiarized.

And Pokkie - I agree 100% with you.
There isnt any competition for Mirko in the UFC. Cro Cop was very smart by sparing eddie sanchez his life and not showing America what he can really do.

anyone who thinks the UFC is on par with PRIDE should watch a final conflict (i like 04) dvd for a couple hours.. then watch UFC immediately after. It makes about 60% of the UFC guys look like total hacks.

As the UFC shells out more and more dough to attract the best fighters in the world things are going to get really interesting and very exciting. but I still think pride does it right.

Im new here. What do people think of the IFL? What I mean to ask is.. Will the format of these "leagues" go a long way? of course its not as important as the fighters. But the stylistic differences in the leagues.. will they make a difference?

Def. a waste of Cro Cop putting him up against these type of fighters, UFC needs to hire more HWs from Pride so we can at least have something to watch, other then another Highlight Kick for Cro Cop.

Im just dying to see him Face Tim, I want to see how it looks when a 6'6 or 8 guy comes crashing down the floor

Then hopefully Chuck moves up and gets the SHlT knocked out of him also, so that will be a lesson for any LHW or HW to even think of challengin Fedor, when they cant even get past Cro Cop
