First of all, who cares what Joe Rogan says, he and Mike goldberg are both ******* idiots! Now, I must admit i was never a pride fan, just never got into it, so i'm not really that familiar with the figters. I heard a lot about Crocop before his UFC debut, but from what i saw, he looks pretty good, but i do beleive Randy would kick his ass. Crocop proved he's terrible on the ground, than for some crazy reason the ref stood him up, and than he got busted with his own specialty. Coture picked apart a much younger, taller, faster and probably stronger fighter in Sylvia, Coture is probably the best fighter to evr fight in UFC, well have to see how longhe can keep it up.
1rst. I think Joe ROgan is very knowledgable, and he may be right that Randy would beat Cro-cop . Or, and this is more likely to me, he was just caught up in the post fight excitement and exaggerated a little bit. Randy has never been known to maul anyone, and he is my favorite fighter, so I wish he would . He is great at clinching at little dirt boxing shots. He's good at throwing his hands to set up the takedown. He great at geeting the takedown, and he's great at controlling his opponents ( except Chuck) . He can be dominant( Belfort, Tito, Chuck 1, Mo Smith) , but in a more deliberate manner. I agree the stand up seemed premature, but the irony shows their is a comedic sense of justice to the universe sometimes. Last you admitted your not that familiar with Pride fighter's or Cro-cop, so do you think it's possible your opinion is not an informed one in this case? Cro-cop has been training with Werdum, who is one of the bets BJJ guys in MMA, for years now. I do think his inability to train in a cage, his unfamiliarity with elbows, and Gonzaga's super agressive GnP contributed to his mauling. SO while I don't agree that Randy would maul anyone, I think Gonzaga did maul him. Also, I think Cro-cop is training appropriately in a cage now , and has added Ricco to his team on the ground. I also think he will wup Kongo, and return to form as one of the top Heavyweights in the world. In conclusion I think I would like to see Couture/Cro-cop ,and I'm picking both to win their next fight , but Randy's a controller not a mauler.
