What do you guys think? I have crocop in the first, but I have not seen Sanchez fight. Anyone think he can last more than one round?

Not unless Cro-cop feels like putting on a show , and letting him hang around.

Cro-cop, I believe that he will go warily to win his first UFC combat .
I think that one will decide the combat in the second round.

Crocop by TKO

I think it'll end in the first unless Crocop wants to take his time with it, or if Sanchez simply refuses to engage, which could happen.

i think Cro Cop Wins in the second round....Cro Cop really isnt a fast starter,unless the opponent is over aggressive,which i dont think sanchez is(from the one fight i saw of him)

so i think CroCop WILL hurt Sanchez a little with leg kicks and jabs and punches...but he will finish him off the second round when sanchez comes back from his corner saying to himself..."meh...he's not that tough!"....then...BOOM!....Dead



im sure you have seen this picture...lol

I think he will make it out of the first, don't see the point in CC taking him out within five minutes and although he has a lot of first round ko's that's normally under en minute rounds.

great point, i think in a 5 min round system, with it being CC's first UFC he may come out and feel the fight out slowly. The best thing Sanchez can do in this fight IMO is hurry the pace though which may blow my whole opinion.

I agree. I fantasy wagered with someone for Cro Cop to win in R2.

Well, if Eddie goes out running from Cro Cop and making a boring fight by not engaging, sure this can go to the second round. But if Sanchez so much as throws a punch that does no damage then, this fight is over in the first. Notice I said "a punch that does does no damage", yes Sanchez has a chance at winning too. He's got a hard right and if he gets lucky and rocks Cro Cop with it, he MIGHT be able to produce something outta it.
