Gonzaga has lost two on the bounce, so has Cro Cop.

Mirko is "thinking about his future". Gonzaga win over Cro Cop is being called a "fluke" by more and more people after his last fight.

It will give Mirko the motivation to avenge his lost & it will give Gabrial the motivation to prove the first win wasnt a fluke.

Even though both fighters are out of title contention at the moment, they are still high-profile and would sell PPV's.

thoughts?

risky from the ufc's perspective so i doubt it will happen. id like to see it though. my guess is that it is not the fight that mirko is looking for as he doesnt want a big beast pushing him up against the cage but he may want to avenge that loss.

GG would most likely beat him again but just by takedowns and GnP, he may have finished him elbows the 1st timehad Herb not ridiulously stood them up

I have to disagree with most of you here... If Cro Cop doesn't throw any kicks it is very hard to take him down, if Cro Cop comes into this fight with the added bulk he has put on and a more cautious gameplan of just using strikes - then I see him avenging the loss to Gonzaga no problem...

I do believe the first win was sort of a fluke, I for one really want to see this fight.... though I would rather let them both fight somebody else and then rematch each other down the road when they are both back on track again.

Gonzaga didn't perform poorly during his fight vs. Werdum. I still see him as an extremely dominant HW. I'm a huge Cro Cop fan- but I'd call the fight 50-50 vs. Gonzaga. The Kongo fight was a fluke- not GGvCC.

Why whats changed?

GG hasnt lost the ability to catch a kick and take CC down and GnP him, he hit him with hard elbows and cut him, and i just dont see anything else happening

Mind you im sure GG would try the headkick again!

Ive always thought they would make these 2 fight again and im now as sure as ever

This time Cro Cop would hopefully come in with a gameplan, last time he said he didn't even have one. Also now everyone knows how to beat GG, block a head kick because he throws so many he tires out and when you hit him a few times he gives up. Thats whats changed.

i was never sold on GG being the next big thing at HW. i think hes good, and right around #8-12 in the world which is no small feat, but after 1 win the internet MMA community seemed ready to call him the next champ of the ufc. i think if these guys were to fight again CC would come out looking to regain face from the last fight which im sure left him angry and embarrased. GG is a very good fighter, but he doesnt always seem to get up for fights(kinda like CC lately) and that could hurt him in the long run. his striking, while very powerful, isnt near the cleanest ive seen, i might even say its sloppy at times(even for a HW). im biased a little in picking this fight, but i think CC would allow GG to come forward on him and pepper him with his hands until the moment came for, you guessed it, the LHK and the earlier loss would be avenged.

In mma, a ground fighter usually wins over the standup fighter, except if the standup fighter has a good takedown defense. Cro Cop is a one dimensional player, with excellent standup (Kickboxer), but untill he fixes his takedown defense or/and his ground game, he will not be a factor in the heavywhight division.
