...Cool swp. I'm on the Cro-Cop bandwagon. I really hope he pulls this off. Votes are showing that may not be the case and for good reason. Barry has vicious kicks & punches. He's compact and throws with bad intentions. Cro-Cop's style has proven to be predictable- the left highkick- the straight left. He must mix up his striking. Mirko must be aggressive, not tentative and fight tall. If CC fights from the outside, he could pick Barry apart. If CC allows Pat to get in range, it will be big trouble for Mirko. This is the last fight on Cro-Cop's contract and he needs to fight his very best fight. Mirko is way overdue for his patented Headkick KO and Barry is much shorter. It would be icing on the cake if he pulled one off...WAR CRO-COP!!War Croatian Sensation!!
that was a year ago , and hague is no slouch on the ground . barry worked alot on his BJJ since than .If it stays standing, I'll pick Barry at this point in their careers. Although, Pat has a very ugly ground game, I even think Cro Cop would dominate him there. If Cro Cop struggles in the stand up, he should be looking for a take down because most of us have seen how badly Pat is lacking in the grappling department. If you haven't, watch Barry vs. Hague. That gives you a fairly good idea.
