What was the deal with the shoes? Is that allowed? Am I the only one that wasnt all that impressed with Cro Cop in this fight? I still dont think hes ready to get back to the UFC. Maybe beating Overeem but a win over Choi shoudnt be the one to send him back to North America (UFC).

Cro Cop is still one of my favorite fighters despite his recent slump. He may not have been the most entertaining fighter ever, but he worked a good game plan and chopped down the lumbering tree of hong man choi. I just wish he'd fight Overeem again so he doesn't look like he's ducking him anymore.

I was impressed, people just don't like that Choi is that big, he acctually has skill and he beat Semmy Schilt. No it wasn't non stop action, Cro Cop can't beat Choi in just exchanges, Choi has been put down once in his career, and his knees are so devastating. Not to mention he landed the head kick. Yes shoes are allowed, and he wore them because he hurt his feet during training. Oh and who said he's coming to the UFC?

I want the animal Cro Cop back, I understand the strategy against Choi though and am glad he won convincingly. I still think he should have DQ'd Kongo and saved his UFC career but I think he'll be revamped after a 6 month layoff and fight overseas or the UFC. Btw that K-1 card was phenominal, except the Aoki Alvarez and Hunt Manhoef fights.

Alright, I guess I can finally say it...Cro Cop is planning on going back to K-1. Next NYE is his next expected fight and he's planning on fighting Dream fighters as a K-1 fighter. He really wants the WGP title and since Remy dominated so handily he feels he can win the title.

i wasn't impressed by that fight :/
it was boring to watch, and if that leg kick didnt injure HMC we'd be en route to a very boring decision



Gotta agree.

I'm glad CC won,but even with this win,he's still not the CC of old.

I'm bias but I thought he looked perfect. Showed his footwork is still there, showed speed again, and he definetly used his mind to win that fight. Had he fought like that against Kongo, he would have won IMHO. I said it before this fight, I didn't like it, Cro Cop loses everyone says he's done blah blah blah, and if he won I knew it woulden't be some highlight reel and people for some reason don't think Choi is a threat. I'd be willing to bet Brocks career would have started off with a loss had he met Choi like he was supposed to.

I still want to see Brock fight Choi.. I think it would be interesting.. And I thought it was a good fight.. CC came out and followed a perfect game plan.. That head kick almost landed it was nice to see it get that high.. i think a stint in K-1 might be perferct for him.. get his confidence back... hope his surgery goes well.

...and CC needs to loose the shoes aha



Were they cutting off his circulation?



what if HMC took him down and got an ankle lock? those shoes make a target just saying =)



You're not understanding...read your original post again

Crocop should be thanking his lucky stars he wasn't fighting Overeem that night.

Choi is a threat for sure,I just don't think it was the CC we all know and love.

I have thought this might be the best move for CC since he left the UFC. Cro Cop vs. Gohkan Saki sounds pretty nice for starters

Choi is tough a win over him is very good.
Has Cro Cop still 3 fights left with the UFC?

The whole fight I was saying to my friend, "if he would just do some leg kicks this would be over quick". Shame he started at 6:31 because it was pretty damn slow until then.

Whoever thought that was a bad stoppage is sorely mistaken though. When Choi went down he was grabbing his knee. He would have just got his head pounded in if Cro Cop followed in after it.
