    I forgot how much I liked this fight.

    I remember the build up to it. It my opinion it was the most pivital fight in MMA history.

    Cro Cop came so close to winning :(

    After he won the Open Weight GP I just KNEW he was gonna get another shot...

    good fight, both guys gave it all they had and I wish they would have got a rematch, not becasue I think the outcome was wrong but becasue I want to see them go at it again
     
  5. fedor is lucky to have made it out of that fight with the belt... tough tough fight for both guys.

    fedor was on the offensive and made crocop a counterstriker

    crocop's guard impressed me that match

    i guess i'm used to seeing him advance more than he does strafe back

    he looked kinda scared of hunt though

    I think the equivalent of how Mirko saw that fight was this.

    Imagine there is a 270lbs elite striker in 4 ounce gloves stalking you...fully intending to hurt you.

    And you have a baseball bat. A metal one. And you hit him in the head with it like 5 times as hard as you can. And he smiles at you. And you know that there is NO way you can hurt this guy.

    Its a bit intimidating.

    fedors passing looked retarded.. yeah yeah, hes fedor.. but as pedro rizzo said

    "he looked like he was mounting like a horse" no finesse passing or mounting cro cop. other than that, he looked amazing

    Yah I remember thinking about that while watching the fight. There was one point where had north-south on Mirko then got up almost completely to try to mount him. I just assumed that he trained mostly stand up for the fight so his ground game got a little rusty, and that left cross he took to the face and two high kicks that landed on his dome rattled him a little more than he showed.
