I thought Cro Cop was fighting Kongo the 8th as a undercard for Rampage VS. Henderson.

Cro Cop does have a weak chin, if Kongo can connect with something heavy he can KO Cro Cop. He has much better strikes than guys like Randleman who knocked out Cro Cop.

But I suspect Mirko is going to be real pissed coming into this fight and will brutalize Kongo with leg kicks setting up something to the head.

Yea Cro Crop seems to come back strong after being upset, look at Randleman and Hunt matches and matches after. It won't surprise me if we see Kongos head rolling on the octagon floor after a left head kick.

The leg kick is the most vastly under used element of MMA, when i used to fight in tournaments legs kicks we're some of the most valuable weapons, they aren't easily blocked if done properly it's nearly impossible to be taken down why doing one and they hurt like a *****, I don't know why people don't do more of them

I guess proper set up for a leg to head kick is hard because you have to back up some.

Ive seen Cro Cop KO Yoshida with leg kicks, man those things looked painful. Probably the guy who best utilizes leg kicks in the UFC is Keith Jardine, but we all saw how that can work out for you when you have an angry man launching fists at you.

Later on in that story it says that Pride belt wont be up. That sucks. I would love to see Henderson VS. Silva at 185. Now that the Rampage Hendo fight is only 8 days away who do you got?

I got Henderson w/ a 3 punch combo KO.

I see Rampage taking it by TKO in the 3rd or 4th. Rampage I think is just too big and strong for Henderson. While he isnt going to dominate him that is going to allow him to wear Hendo down and eventually score the victory.

Then watch out as Hendo goes back to his natural weight class !

Do you think Henderson would be ranked#1 at 185? In most current rankings he hasnt beaten any top 10 opponents but he still did have the pride 183 belt.

But I got Silva over Henderson if they fight

Im pretty shocked Im the only one to have picked Hendo to lose this fight. I guess Im the only one who watched the Misaki fight haha


Anyone heard news on Denis Kang and where he might be signing? Kang is a stud and it would be nice to see him in UFC, he could challenge Anderson and any other MW the UFC has.

I read a Dana White interview and he said he doesnt consider Kang one of the top level Pride guys but hes not opposed to signing him. I h eard Kang to K1 is a possibility.

Also about your prediction of Page over Hendo, I think most are taking Hendo because how easily he went through Wandy. Also, Hendo has went on record saying hes staying at LHW because "Why fight little guys when I can beat up all the big ones" So I think Reguardless win or lose hes staying at LHW.


BTW Hendo by Unanimous decision. I think Rampage is being overrated because of one nice punch, he looked ****** against Eastman who is a glorified can. Hendo is also one of my favorite fighters so I am rather bias.

No, Anderson Silva is clearly the most dominant MW out there. After him its Filho, Linland than Henderson IMO.

I would love to see Henderson VS. Linland, 2 former olympians going at it would be a nice match.

Does anybody know where Vitor Belfort is I would like to see him in UFC I like his fighting style.

Awww come on Josh, don't diss Dana that aint going to help anything haha. Also, Lindland will never, ever, fight im the UFC again. He left the UFC on very bad terms after a gambling scandal I believe it was and he will not be returning.

I watched Kang fight K1 not too long ago, wasnt Hero's though he was fighting straight kickboxing. The guy he was fighting was smaller than him but a BEAST. Kang ended up getting KO'd but looked good, especially for a guy who entered MMA as a BJJ specialist its pretty impressive he can hold his own against K1 level strikers to go with his BJJ expertise.

Also remember, Rampage has recently beaten Lindland who has just as good credentials as Hendo. Not quite the same right hand but Lindland did KO Jeremy Horn which is near impossible to do.

Also here is a funny video I found that got brought back up with the Babalu getting fired thing.

How do you all feel about Rampage and his training claiming "silva and Shogun had extra help against him" inferring roids? Rampage even said he knew Henderson was going to KO Silva because Silva didn't have time to juice. IMO I think it is dumb to gossip like that, maybe they are just bitter because Rampage has been posterized 3 times (Shogun once and Wanderlei twice) against both of them.

Theres always been a controversy surrounding Wandy and Roid use. Apparently in Japan stuff like that is way more relaxed, its all speculation take it how you want to.

I just watched Pride Shockwave 2004 and it is a great card. Wanderlie VS. Mark Hunt maybe the best match I have ever seen. Fedor had a great one, the only dissapointment was Randleman VS. Cro Cop didnt last longer. It was worth getting it just to see Hunt VS. Silva
