    I think alot of people agree with your thinking.

    It would be awesome and would make everyone take a second look as to what they are paying for.

    let me add, if Vera does in fact beat up Cro Cop...he could be worth close to that 1 mil a fight..but I highly doubt it

    If Vera beats Crocop, the rankings would go to shit.

    This scenario makes sense thus means it will not happen.

    I dont think they want to risk CC getting hurt or even losing. Theyll probably face him off against Kongo.

    I'd love to see it, but I'm guessing UFC is pretty pissed off at him, and will wait until September to give him his last fight and make it a dark match of sorts...

    He'd have to beat him twice for that to happen.

    If he is going to be an asshole, feed him to Cro Cop and call him a day.

    They could either make him take this fight, or just make him sit until right before his contract is up in September...

    no YOU think about this question really fucking hard...either one of 2 things happen.

    1. Crocop beats the shit out of Vera, and vera leaves the uFC back to mediocrity and the UFC wins.

    2. Vera beats Crocop, and therefore proves he worth the money hes asking. so you resign him.....think of the hype of a Vera/CroCop rematch if Vera beat him once, or if Vera beat Crocop, and then somehow the UFC got Fedor


    Is it that fucking hard to understand?

    "Somehow" getting fighters isnt a very sustainable business plan. CroCop still has no name in the States, he will, but not yet. Cro Cop looses his second fight and he might as well be forgotten. He needs to fight a few cans and start filling highlight reeels to build a name. If he looses to Vera, by any reason, it just "proves" that another hyped fighter didnt live up to the " UFC world standards". Even thought Cro Cop is 100X more likely to win this fight, its too much at stake for Zuffa and the UFC. You have to protect your investements. CroCop will be the next Liddel as far as populatity goes, no problem.

    Why I think this wont happen?

    They dont want to give Vera any more press. Losing to Cro Cop is probably better for your career than beating someone who is... honestly... a Fight Night Caliber fighter.

    If the UFC makes money off a Vera - Cro Cop fight, they gain some press for cro cop but none for vera as he leaves. If vera wins, they are borked, because vera will leave for EliteXC and take that fame with him. If vera loses, they still gain nothing. Sanchez's loss can be used to the benefit of the UFC by spinning a comeback.

    To me, doesnt make sense to give a departing fighter a chance to grab more fans to take with him to a rival promotion.
