In American MMA market the face of mma is Chuck Liddell. But I believe by the end of the year Cro Cop will be taking his place. One thing I'm really looking forward too with Cro Cop coming to the US, is that I believe his fighting style expecially in the heavyweight division will actually educate the American public on more technical aspects on fighting. No one in America has seen a fighter like him and can you imagine putting Cro Cop as a coach on the TUF show? He is going to blow American fans minds once he throws that high kick. The only sad thing about it is, but it's extremely smart on his part, is that he will be more famous then Fedor, probably end up one of the most famous fighters in the world with the combined exposer in K1 and Pride and now the UFC. But if the UFC and Pride can come together and have a UFC Champion Cro Cop vs. Pride Champ Fedor, biggest fight in mma history.

I think the best way Cro-cop could change the face of MMA is to be a TUF coach. It would give another foreign fighter exposure , and acclimate more american fans to accepting someone to whom english is not a first language(GSP did well). Also, like Chuck , CroCop has amazing takedown defense. If he was given some good standup fighter's who's takedown defense is subpar( Kit Cope, Cung Lee come to mind ) , and can actually teach it, it would change MMA. Grappler's would improve standup, sriker's making the move to MMA would be given time to develop ground skills, Less LnP.

Yep. He's also on the world wide of Spike which is kind of like a less gay version of Jackass, where they get their ideas to do crazy stuff by watching people do it first.

The UFC and pride already tried to set one up and it Wandy vs Chuck. So unless you think Wandy is a UFC fighter, I disagree. Also, the only other rumored fight between org's has been Gomi vs Sherk. You gotta have hope man, it will happen someday.
