When Mirko Cro Cop steps into the Octagon to test his mettle against Cheick Kongo this Saturday night in London, England, it will be a battle of two standup super predators – two men occupying the top of the striking food chain. It has all the earmarks of a spectacular fight, if both men come out aggressively firing shots in search of a crowd-pleasing knockout victory.

Nice... fun article to read.

Crocop will show up ready to bang, I think.

Very good insight.....

Anybody else think the easiest way for Cro Cop to win this fight is to immediately shoot in on Kongo and put him on his back and pound him out?

It probably won't happen but Kongo's takedown defense is pretty bad for a UFC fighter.

I agree with the takedown idea for Cro Cop. His ground game is miles ahead of Kongo's.

I've never seen Cro Cop shoot though....I wonder if he even knows how. His standup power is too much for Kongo though.

I do disagree with the statement about showing that you are not intimidated. Yes you should not show fear anytime but really now everyone knows ESPECIALLY Cro Cop that his standup is probably the most feared in the sport. Whether you show it or not does not change the fact one little bit.

All in all the only way Cro Cop loses is the same way he lost the last one. If he beats himself. If his mind is not there he won't overcome. With Cro Cop unless you are fighting a Fedor, or a Couture, etc. the only way that guy loses is by mental error.

Personally I see Kongo reading too much into the Gonzaga fight and getting caught trying to press. KO Cro Cop
