    nothing wrong with what he said. I'd rather see a guy go in cocky and believe that he can win than somebody that goes in having already lost the fight in his head.

    He's nowhere close to Chris Leben, the cockiest thing he said was that he was going to try to KO Cro Cop, but what can you expect him to say? He was respectful of Cro Cop too :dunno:

    And he didn't do any of that stupid point of the finger and stare crap, "go back to Japan where it's easier", etc, etc

    Yeah Silva will be all up in Hendo's anus. He shouldn't be saying anything but prayers (just kidding, I just wanted to say "all up in ___'s anus")

    If CroCop gets booed I will never watch a UFC event again.

    Oh, and he didn't seem to be cocky at all to me. He's obviously not going to go up there and be like "yeah right, you think a guy like me is going to beat CroCop?"

    404cockynotfound, although he didnt seem very confident in my mind. If he was going up against someone that is known in the ufc then he would definitly be booed. Typical americans are gonna boo him cause hes not from the states tho. So expect boo's.

    He didn't seem cocky at all. He gave Crocop respect and he's going into the fight confident. Nothing wrong with that.

    it'll be hilarious if people boo, they will be booing until the fucking bombs start dropping. You know american audiences love teh KO, they will fall in love with mirko real quick.

    2 min max on that fight, but I hope mirko gives the US audience what they want.

    I admire that. Best luck to your friend, with that attitude he has a bright future in the HW division. But I still think this will be a etienne vs tyson type of affair.
