“I train a lot of boxing — I like the striking a lot and I’ll go after another knockout. What I want is the knockout…. This guy is dangerous standing, but I’m going after the knockout, as always. With the opportunity, I’ll show my ground too…. I’m facing it as a very good opportunity in my life. Cro Cop is a guy that, if you talk about MMA, you know who he is. He’s very dangerous and famous, if not the most dangerous man in the MMA … this is an incredible opportunity….”

Despite a solid ground game, Junior dos Santos plans to go toe-to-toe with former K-1 and Pride FC wrecking machine, Mirko Cro Cop.

I don't like that idea at all. Standing with Cro Cop smells like a bad Idea to me.

Yeah, I think Dos Santos should rather try the ground game. Cro Cop is very dangerous standing up. If Dos Santos wants to fight him standing up he needs to be very careful.

Well at least it will be guaranteed fireworks if these two are just gonna bang it out. Not the smartest gameplan, but whatever.

I'm not sayin Dos Santos is gonna kick CC's head into the 3rd row, i'm just sayin, upsets only happen when someone gets underestimated, and theres alot of that goin on

Granted the uppercut that he KO'd Werdum with was impressive but if he tries that against CC he's gonna get cracked.

Standing with Mirko is only gonna end one way, Dos Santos has KO'd nobody in Crocop's league! Cro cop by domination

I hope this is an entertaining fight if anything. It's a win/win to me, I would really like to see a great fight with a nice KO. A win for either of them makes me happy.

I see dos Santos playing mind games here. I don't think for one minute that he won't take Mirko down if he gets the chance. But who knows maybe he's getting a big head after the Gonzaga fight.

I think this fight will be a war and a real test for CC. Dont get me wrong i truly think its gonna be a stand up domination by CC. Going with round 2 TKO

Thats what am thinking you beat me to it dos santos is playing mind games may be he will stand up if he is out of his mind. dos santos is a good boxer but not a world class kick boxer like mirko may be he gets lucky gonzaga style but its a very dangerous game he is going to play.If he pulls it off al take my hat off to him for having the balls to do it but a so hope cc wins and has a good run at the title.WAR CRO-COP

I think this should be a great fight either way, I alos wouldnt be suprised if Mirko takes it to the ground (just to score some points). I think he has more to lose if he gets beat, dos santos is and up and comer with alot to prove but he is expected to lose, so that gives him room to come out guns blazing for a big KO.
