    if true, then i can't believe pride gave into his demands. he was asking for no less than that much, but the fuck if he's worth it


    then again, this is coming from fightsport.com, which is as reliable as that homeless dude outside of my office that argues with the trash can

    If this fight does happen a smart cro cop will show off his ground skills.

    Cro Cop is a great striker, one of the best, but that is a HUGE reach advantage esspeically considering the Choi has some skill.

    This is truly just like fedor v zulu. He will win standing or on ground, but on ground, it will be hilarious. Like a fish out of water for the clown.

    yes, grappling with somebody that outweighs you by 170lbs would be the preferable way to fight him, especially if he has a height advantage of one foot

    dude is slow I don't even think it would matter.... he lacks explosivity. Crocop could take him.

    That Ake / Choi fight was possibly the WORST fight I have ever had the displeasure of seeing.

    Akebono must be the biggest pussy out there in MMA. Anytime I've seen him fight he's pathetic.


    I'm suuuuuure I could do better. Self taught yo!

    i saw this fight and that little guy had heart.

    the event was held in korea i think and the little guy had a draw at the end of the fight. it was like hockey or some shit so they made them fight another round and he ended up losing, mostly because it seemed like they wanted to give the korean fans something to cheer about.

    No wonder PRIDE is rumored to be in financial trouble if they are willing to waste $$ like that... Will his presense boost ppv buys by more than $4mil in asia?? I can't see it having much effect on American fans...

    sylvia was 170lbs heavier and 1' taller than monson? :eek3:


    damn, i guess i missed the weigh-ins, and either monson shrunk or sylvia had a growth spurt
