    Cro Cop via KO R2

    Bader via UD R3

    Lytle via KO R1

    Sherk via UD R3

    Stephens via sub R3

    What are your guys bets?
  2. Personally, I'm looking forward to finding out if Mark Hunt decided to take himself seriously and train, or if he's just here for the payday before he retires.

    I can't ever go against Frank Mir.

    Funny, I can never go for Mir. The man is great at what he does. But there is just something about him that makes me smile when he gets beat :smug:

    I mean that's cool, but if we're putting chips down on the table, I'll never vote against Mir. Cro-cop is great, but my money would be on Mir.

    I've not been watching MMA very long. Isn't the concern about Cro-cop is that he's past his prime? I've watched a few of his fights with Fedor, and the man is good. Does he still have it? Am I right in thinking this?
  7. In a nutshell: he's getting old. He doesn't have the speed and sheer viciousness that he had in his 20's and early 30's. I'm not sure if he's physically slowing down, or if it's entirely mental. But there have been several instances of him talking about just not having the passion for fighting that he used to.

    Maybe what appears to be a smug, immature fighter who doesn't ever seem to work as hard as his counterparts? Yeah, I think that's why I have a huge dislike for Mir.

    I will say this though, I will root for Mir long before I ever root for Lesnar.

    I will never, ever, EVER root for Lesnar. Honestly, he could be fighting Satan for dominion of all Man Kind, and I'd start rooting for Satan in my Heat Gear.

    i wish Allistair Overeem would sign with the UFC and crush Lesnar!!!
  11. Overeem amazes me. He keeps getting better. He's got the speed of someone half his size and the strength of someone 30 pounds heavier. If he's not on 'roids, as so many people like to accuse, then he's a freak of nature and belongs with the top competiton.

    This recent highlight reel speaks for itself:
  12. I think Cro-Cop has gotten past his recent mental problems. He is having fun fighting again, just watch his last fight for an example. As much as I hate to admit it, I dont think there is anyone out there that can beat Lesner. He is bigger than everyone, faster than everyone, has awesome cardio, I way stronger than everyone else and his wrestling is amazing. I really hate to say it about the guy, but I doubt we will see him loose anytime soon.

    The thing I like most about Lesnar is how much of an athlete he is. It's insane to see him move like he does.

    Yes, I like Lesnar :bag:

    Cro Cop for sure.
  16. I don't like Lesner as a person, but he is entertaining to watch fight and the man is just a freak. Much like GSP is in 170. The only person that I saw beating Lesner was Carwin, and Lesner took the massive fists of his then almost popped Carwin's head off. Dude is a beast. Still not a fan of his though, but he has earned my respect.

    What lousy fight. Just when I was thinking that Lil' Nog and Bader was a boring fight this snoozefest hit.

    Geez, that was sooo boring.
    They looked like old friends having mutual respect for each other. None of them deserved to win.
  19. Well, I said it before the fight and I will stick to it. Cro Cop's career is now officially over.
