Kinda is the same thread but o well. There are rumours going around that Cro Cop will face Cheick Kongo. Guess the UFC was him to KO a striker with more Cred.
If this is true, do you guys think the UFC is sheltering their top fighters like AA and throwing CC cans? Kongo has promise but wouldnt the most rational matchup be CC vs AA and then the winner from that face Tim Silvia?
IMO they'll give us CC vs AA after CC gets his title shot. We are all pretty sure CC can handle AA with no problem, but what happens if AA pulls off the upset and big Tim retains his title over Couture? AA's win over CC would definatly give him the #1 contender position and make for a AA vs Sylvia 4, and I don't know how many people want to see that. But yes, AA vs. CC is definatly one i'd like to see. I'm not sure who they're gonna give to CC for his next fight, because there isn't much competition out there in the UFC HW division. Vera would be best, but who knows what's going on with him and his contract disputes.
