Matsune/Hokazowno



Man you know more japanese fighters than anyone else in the world! I've never heard of these two fighters and I'm sure the casual fan and even some hardcore fans haven't heard of these two so it def. wouldn't be the most anticipated fight ever, this is also the UFC and Pide FC forum so those two would be out of the question.

hmm crocop/fedor is one.. but probably not any more.
things have become dull with fedor kinda getting back into it..
and crocop leaving to ufc.

wand/liddell is also anticpated. perhaps @ pride 33 he can mention it again.

and ofcourse there is bob sapp vs mike tyson lol!

I would much rather see Cro Cop fight Cotoure than Sylvia. Hopefully that is what we will end up seeing anyway. But more than either of those, I want to see CC fight Arlovski. I think that will be a great fight.


Why do you hate Randy? I think his Ear might Take Cro Cops LEg if he threw the LHK.
hahahahha. Man i would much rather watch Tim get KTFO then Randy. I hope Randy does beat Tim though. Its funny how Tim is saying Bring on Fedor all the time (at least he used to) but he never responded to Jerome Le Banners Challenges.

I'll paste the part where he answers

BK: There's also been some rumors about you and Jerome Le Banner doing some trash talking on the internet.

TS: Jerome Le Banner hasn't been talking to me. There's some guy going around with a fake myspace and account and he says he's me. That's who he's been talking trash with is him, not me. It's kind of funny . Both of them are being idiots really if you ask me. I don't talk a lot of trash. I think everyone knows that. People accuse me of a lot of things. Would I fight him? Oh, absolutely. I fight anybody they put in front of me. Whoever the UFC says, I'll do it. If he wants to get in the ring with me then I'll knock his ass out in the UFC.

It's actually a good interview if anybody wants to read the whole thing

I think CC v. Couture is the better overall matchup. But that doesn't mean I want to see it.

What I want to see is a slow, slow death for Tim Sylvia at the hands of Cro Cop. I want Cro Cop to break Timmy's will. I think after all the snorefest fights he's made us pay for recently, he deserves a good LHK to the dome. Maybe a couple. I want to see his punk ass get laid out. I don't think Randy will beat Tim, and I think this is your most likely matchup. AND the one I personally want to see as well.

WAR ANYONE BUT TIMMY!

Dude, that's a freaking awesome interview.


Here's my favorite part.

BK: Let's talk about The Ultimate Fighter for a second. What do you think of the show?

TS: I think Ken's an idiot...

I would have to say Fedor/Mirko 1 was the most anticipated fight to date.
Chuck/Wand is probably the most in the foreseeable future.

I'd like to add Chuck vs Randy 3. Rubber matches always have a significant amount of anticapation, as you can usually see exactly how each guy could win. I'm really looking forward to Hughes/GSP 3 as well.

Maybe I'm wrong, according to y'all, but I think Chuck/ Randy II was , not built up more - but anticipated more, for casual fans. That's matches that've happened.

I think Chuck / Wandy has enoutgh hype to be the biggest, if done right after negotiations (meaning it has good setup but... ) My biggest is Chuck / Shogun. I'm also lookin forward to any match where Time shows his worth a little more.

Chuck/Wandy probably, followed by Fedor/CC 2. But the most anticipated fight that never happened (and never will) for me is Rickson/Sakuraba

Excellent point, but then again Rickson vs anybody for the last 7 years has been a myth. I think he just likes to talk.

Sweet man. Although he does say he would take the fight. He didnt work for it.
I love how the reporter spelled Andrei, andre every time.
Great post.
