Vicious Cro Cop Rumor


(Just hangin’ around the house on a lazy Saturday.)

There’s been more than one message board in the MMA cyber world with posts claiming some pretty disappointing news. The rumor – and it is just that right now – is that DREAM officials are talking about Cro Cop fighting at DREAM 3…against Hong-Man Choi. The posters have been saying that the press in Japan are backing up these claims. Shit. That would suck more than enough ass.

If this shit happens, it won’t go to the mat unless HMC falls on top of Cro Cop like he did against Fedor. Neither guy has much by way of a ground game, so it’d probably amount to some low kicks to the Techno Goliath’s legs until he toppled. DREAM could certainly do better than this, but the Japanese seem insistant on making Hong-Man Choi an MMA star. Sure, it’s business and you need viewers. The ratings for DREAM 1 reportedly blew and HMC versus Crop Cop could bring in the Japanese viewers. Good for DREAM, bad for us.

Ratings aside, let’s hope this one doesn’t materialize and Cro Cop gets a solid test for his next fight. But if this is to be believed, I’m going to go drink myself into a coma. It is St. Patty’s Day afterall.

I think Cro Cop is taking fights that won't seriously injur him yet keep him at a "higher profile" until he can reach a deal with the UFC. If he stays healthy and keeps winning, he can cut a better deal.

I'd REALLy like to see Fedor sign with the UFC. They could really turn him into an even bigger international star.

Fedor vesus Brock Lesner.

Come on...you know you want to see it!

Ah the freak-show circuit. Where steroid-junkies and wash-outs go to die... Say hi to Fedor for us, Mirko!

Honestly, at this point who really gives a shit about mirko. The guy is obviously not a top heavyweight. Maybe at one point in time he was, but not anymore. If someone wants to be considered a top fighter then they have to prove themselves in the ufc. ( I'm not a ufc ass kisser, but that is where the top talent is)

HMC is no joke on his feet. Fedor didn't want to stand with him at all. CC is going to have a hard time with this guy since he's got no ground game despite all that time with Werdum

"feeding" Cro Cop opponents that he will destroy with relative ease will do nothign for his career and especially if he is sincere about coming back to the UFC.

If this is case and he faces a couple more easy wins, He will come back to the UFC and get beat down by any of the UFC HW's. Maybe even Eddie Sanchez wont be scared anymore

Online sarcasm just doesnt work sometimes lol, dont try it
Whores, I love whores.- March 17, 2008 at 5:36 am
Cro Cop needs to get back to the UFC ASAP. Maybe they will let Ben Rothwell pund him out...........

Riiiiigggghhhhhttttt.

Cro-Crap needs to stick with "K-1" style of fighting....I'm sick of watching him pout when he can't kick to the head without the fear of going to the ground..
Can Cro-Crap even reach HMC's head...?

LOL, I love people that resort to calling people faggots after they get owned.

This would be so stupid, funny to watch though..

Hey faggot, my bad for not taking the time to dissect such an intelligent post, I should have been able to detect such strong sarcasm, especially when it is written so coherently!
Leadbelly- March 17, 2008 at 3:35 am
Hey retard, I think BJ was being sarcastic, WOW *shakes head*
James- March 17, 2008 at 3:23 am
wtf are you talking about? Rothwell is ranked 7th and Barnett is 9th
BJ "Fuckin" Penn- March 17, 2008 at 3:15 am
First time at your site. Funny. Why don't you get the DREAM officials to set up Mirko Vs Ben Rothwell. LOL, change your fuckin HW rankings they are absolutly the worst I have ever seen.

LOL, Barnett wouldn't beat BEN ROTHWELL, lol, no way, not a chance...........what a joke.
