AA vs CC 45/55% chance

Im a huge AA fan, but thats not right

CC 75/ AA 25
CC60/ Randy 40
CC 60/ Werdum 40
CC80 / Sylvia 20
CC 70/ Gonzaga 30



i half heartidly agree with you, but saying gonzaga has a better chance than arlovski is absurd.

heres mine:

CC --- AA = 75 / 25
CC -- Tim = 85 / 15
CC -- Randy = 60 / 40
CC -- Werdum = 60/ 40

I think Chuck has as good a shot as anybody because of his laser accurate punching ability.

Wrestling negates a lot of sytles, so Randy would have a chance but CC would win most of the time.

I see Arlovski acually taking Cro Cop similiar to the way he beat sylvia the first time. I think he will drop him with a right. Go the ground and submit him. Randy can also earn a victory ...probably a decision i dont see him stopping Mirko. Unless he could get north/south position the way he did on von arsdale. Tim Sylvia vs Cro Cop is a fight i really want to see. I know how bad Tim has been lately. But he has a good chin, and hes huge, i also can see him beating Cro cop.

How about CroCop actually holding a belt before giving him the title of greatest ever. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Couture the champ. CroCop needs to beat Couture not vice versa. I'll take Couture by GnP!!!

Yeah if they do fight Cro Cop does need to beat Couture. But Couture is not Tim Sylvia, he will fight, instead of trying to win on the score cards. Come on he's The Natural.

C'mon we all know Cro Cop is going to walk through the UFC only person who i think has a chance is Werdum.

Walk through... No
Dominate..Yes

Working with Werdum has improved his ground game a lot. I think he'll hold the UFC belt longer than Hughes. (Unless Fedor comes over)



I think this best describes my opinion. I haven't seen a lot of talent in the UFCs heavyweight division. Too many fighters with size, but little skill and little endurance.

Cro Cop will take the belt from Randy (don't get me wrong, I like Randy) and I see him defending it many times (unless Prides heavies come over)

Man there is like 20 posts I want to reply to, but axe murderer imo is the only one that is making any sense to me. HUGE underestimation to Mirko from most in this forum. Means one thing for me, I'm gonna rake in the $$$ when this Randy/ Mirko thing happens. I dont see anyone in UFC being a threat to CC!! The only guy I want to see CC fight is Fedor...

Sure he's gonna be challenged, he has been his whole life. He is a pioneer in his sprawling technique and the cage is larger than the ring, I see the octagon being an advantage.

They pay CC the big $$ for a reason. Because hes a bankable star. I dont think anyone in th UFC HW division will be able to stop CC. I REALLY hope Randy can, because its Randy and we love him like we love puppies

i think AA big tim and Randy all have a fair chance against him, cro cop is one of my favorites and he should definatly be on everyones top 3 heavyweight list, but i think people forget that he can be beaten. im not saying AA tim or randy would win but i think that if they brought thier A game that they have the skills and tools to beat him, AA and Tim both have the KO power to do it and i think Randys dirty boxing and wrestling skills could earn him a decision if he can avoid getting ko'd
