This is a guy who the UFC really needs to pick up. Sick stand-up, decent subs, and he is a young fighter who would add to a thin middleweight division. He is currently fighting in Cage Rage at the moment, but I think the UFC will pick him up and if they dont then they are missing out on a exciting, youthful fighter. What do you guys think, is he ready for the big show, or not?

He's been picked up by Pride, hasn't he?

And I don't know about UFC´s MW division being thin.

Silva
Franklin
Marquardt
Swick
Okami
Kampmann
MacDonald
Terry Martin
Lister

I think it's pretty okay.

sweet Zelg is gonna be in Pride. And the UFC MW divsion is basically the best in the world in comparison to others.
How can you say the UFC MW divison is weak? It is clearly their 2nd strongest divison.

I doubt we will see that since Cung Le has been fighting with Strikeforce for the his MMA career. It seems like they are givign him Cannon Fodder for oppoents to. Since he has such a big fanbase as long as he is winning it will keep growing. I think it would be too much of a risk for Strikeforce to allow Cung to fight in Pride.

Ive never understood why people call him lil CC, the only thing he has in common with Filipovic is his nationality.

But anyway, I cant wait to see him fight in Pride, though I wish it could have been the UFC that picked him up...

They trained together, I believe and when I watch him fight he does seem to have a little of Mirko's style in the standup...

Not as much the actual striking, but his posture and body position seem to resemble CC... Or maybe they're just trying to give the kid a compliment, considering Mirko is the best fighter to come out of Croatia (no offense meant to Pat)

EDIT:

2. Militech
3. Cowcatcher
4. Zelg
