NO, you are trying to tell us than Dos sucks until he proves otherwise. Go ahead and pick against someone because they havent won enough fights to educate you. Looking at you pickem record it has worked well for you so far. LOL
No, I am telling you that you cannot say someone is a great fighter based on looking at their performance against C level fighters. That is why I mentioned Jason Reinhart. He is a prime example of someone that can look good because they are not fighting top competition.
I have never once said that Dos Santos sucks, I just said that I am not sold on the fact that he has the tools to beat CroCop. CroCop has shown me more in the last 3 years against better competition than Dos Santos. I never jump on a fighter's bandwagon until I have seen him fight about 5 guys in top organizations. So many times have I seen a new guy come in and tool someone. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon and says he is the next big thing (maybe because it makes them feel better inside to say that they knew about him when he was less known or something, I don't know) and many times have I seen that same fighter be returned to Earth after a couple more fights. A perfect example of said fighter would be Tim Boetsch. The guy tooled Heath and went on to be 1-2 in his next 3 fights.
REgarding Mirko being unproven. Seriously you think his chin is unproven? Oh yeah, he's only gone the distance with some of the hardest hitters in MMA.
