Like I've said earlier. I Like the UFC and have followed via DVD and the last 8-10 UFC's, but What do people think of Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic, He is pretty tough in the pride fights I've seen..

He's very tough and probably has the most dangerous left leg in the world.

Yeah I seem to remember hearing something about his guy, but he got knocked out by Kevin Randleman so he must not be all that good.
Do you think that losing to Randleman means that you aren't that good? Cro-Cop is one of the best in the world, He just won an Open Weight Grand Prix and beat some of the best of the best doing it.

Please research your fighters before you dimiss them.

He also knocked out Wandy Silva, does this make Silva bad?

Pride has better LHW and HW fighters then UFC, simple as that. I mean, look at our Heavyweight champ, big tim sylvia... Fedor Emelyanenko would absolutely demolish him. Crocop could take out Liddell, the fight could go either way.

You think I don't know who mirko ****ing crocop is? And yeah I know randlemans not washed up, i was just kidding. Crocop still aint got shit on Ernesto Hoost.
Well I have to say that is one way of admitting that you don't research your fighters.

All bickering aside, if you truly love MMA you have to check this guy out. He is a stud in the ring.

I don't think I'll ever understand the current "Silva sucks, he got KO'd by Cro Cop" comments. Like you said, he got KO'd by a motivated(And deadly) Mirko. Silva fought with one eye, and would've fought with both eyes swollen shut. The guy's a warrior.

Cro Cop's the only guy who actually has a chance against Fedor nowadays. I think Fedor vs Cro Cop 2 will be huge.

I would LOVE to see a Liddell vs Cro-Cop fight. That makes my heart race just thinking about it.

Definetly my favorite Pride fighter.

CroCop possesses the most dangerous leg in the world. Left leg.


And to top it off, hes one of the most humble fighters ive seen to date.

Hes a great sportsman.

This is what I don't like, "Fedor this, and Fedor that" how do you know who would win that fight? You act like its cut and dry, and you don't give Tim Sylvia any credit. I think it could go either way, if the fight hits the grounds, advantage Fedor. But if Tim kept it standing, goodnight Fedor, that sloppy haymaker style striking that Fedor uses ( along with MANY other Pride fighters ) would not work against a far more technical striker like Tim. And just go take a look at Fedor's record and tell me how many guys on there are actuall competition, its a joke.

OK Tim Sylvia does not a great technical striking, and as for Fedor has not beat anyone good im guessing you don't know much about Pride as he has beating the former PRide HW champ 3 times, Cro Cop, former UFC champ Mark Coleman and will do it again and many more, so by saying he hasnt fought any good competition you are a moron and fedor would slaughter Sylvia.

PRIDEFC Official Website heres who he's beatin in pride, its a pretty impressive resume.

Fedor > Cro Cop >>>>>>>>Tim Sylvia

That sloppy haymaker style beat a Mirko Crocop. Maybe you didn't see that fight.

I agree Tim Sylvia is definitely not a technical striker he is all height and size advantage. He getting better but compare his improved striking to Andrei Arlovski's improved striking. Andrei is the more technical one right? Faster hands, better movement, more accurate but he lost twice to Tim Sylvia. A few people on here don't understand how hard it is to stand and strike with a guy who's 4 inches taller who has the longer reach advantage and KNOWS HOW TO USE IT. Tim would beat alot of good strikers out with his height and size advantage. I mean it looks horrible to watch but its still effective. For the record Tim Sylvia still has a long way to come he's a strong puncher but his hands still need work that come with time and hard training.

Yeah i agree with that, i mean i personally do not like Tim Sylvia but i stongly beleive but him up against Fedor Emelianenko, Mirko Cro Cop and even Mark Hunt and Tim Sylvia would loose. An you could use the arguement that well Tims like a foot taller than Fedor and how could he get inside his reach but if anyone recalls fedors first fight in pride was with a 6 foot 10 inch giant Semmy Schilt who is no slouch and Fedor seemed to have man-handled him pretty good. Tim is good but alot of the heavyweights in Pride would beat him.

Edit: O yeah i also forgot to mention i think Barnett and Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira could also beat him too.
