wanted to know what you guys think of cro-cop at lhw. he only weighs 220 at his fights and by fight time guys like chuck and wandy weigh that much. he has lost 2 st8 and looked overwhelmed against a much bigger kongo. has he lost something or do some of you guys believe he just needs to move down in weight. randy is bigger than cro-cop right now. i know that some of the casual ufc fans will say that he has never been that good and now that he has lost 2 str8 in the ufc that is proof, but i dont buy that argument this guy has faced some of the best fighters in the world and won most. i say cro-cop needs to get bigger or get smaller. agree or disagree?

Right now I really don't think it matters, he's beaten aleks, sapp, coleman, ect. all pretty big guys. HW or LHW doesn't matter if you don't have the fire.

Will never happen, he can't possibly cut the weight and be in fighting condition. CC is about as Small as he's going to get being in between 216-220 lbs.

I think he could make it, if he really tried but maybe if he was younger. But i dont think he has the will to do that.

i agree,he should either try and cut down,or bulk up.kongp was much bigger,as was sapp and others you mentioned,but they werent big and tall like cheik,he is a monster.let us not forget cc's two losses are against title contenders.cro cop is a world class fighter and will be back.he may have surpassed his prime but he has a few ko,s left in him.if he couldnt cut the weight,it would have nothing to do with his "will",it would be simply cause he couldnt do it,wich is why he doesnt fight at 205

He fought and beat aleks who was 6'6 and weighs more then kongo, so this to big argument is moot.

I would love to see him at 205. I think this would be a good thing for the UFC as well.

I think 205 is ridiculous for him. Cro Cop may not be the same fighter he once was but he isnt going to run away to another division in the face of adversity.

Everyone has to leave their prime at some point. He is still a good fighter but his prime is behind him. I hope he fights out his last two fights on his contract and then maybe he thinks about taking some time off or even retiring who knows. I still feel honored every time I get to watch him fight...but I also understand that I cant expect a HL KO every time and I just want him to continue to do the best he can do. I dont want him to run away cause then it truley would be the end of Cro Cop.

i think at 205 he would not have that many KO, guys at LHW are faster and will try and get that takedown,but CC does have good takedown D. so i would like to see him at that weight, not to sure if he wants to cut weight tho

I don't think Cro Cop will go down to 205. I guess it is possible but I don't think he wants to cut that much weight.

And why would he need to bulk up? Maybe put on a bit more muscle to get a little stronger. But Cro Cop needs that quickness.

Anyway, Cro Cop should set up his kicks with punches, and set up his big left straight with some jabs. Cro Cop was throwing power shots the whole fight, and wasn't actually boxing. He was just looking for the quick KO. But, he's done like most of his career, hasn't he?
