He's definitely crazy to take this fight, but if he is somewhat competent, and he gives Crocop a good fight, he will get noticed. Sanchez is young. If he can even hang for a little while, he'll look good.

I am familiar with Crocop. I googled Sanchez. I don't know if I want to pay to see this guy get his head handed back to him from off the mat. Look down and to your right, yep. That foot. Where am I?

Yeah, but Rogue, how many people do you think went to Youtube to find Mirko Crocop after that announcement? They should have had Rogan say a lot more about him throughout the show, though.

They should have at least tried to show some K-1 footage of CC.

I didn't see the fight. From what you guys are saying there was no hoopla for Crocop for the future fights? Good. That guy is no nonsense anyway. He probably requested that they don't go nuts over him. He's gonna bring it for sure. A huge crowd with their mouths wide open.

Cro Cop's UFC career will likely be nothing short of a high light reel!

Mirko Cro Cop vs. Andrei Arvlowski. I'd pick Cro Cop even thought Arvlowski is one of my favorites.

Maybe they could give him a shot at Sherk instead since he is a 155er naturally.Originally Posted by Rogue Drone

Good idea, that would actually be a close fight.Originally Posted by jas123

A close fight?? Serra would get smashed by Sherk.

Yeah, I think it would be a close fight. You might want to hop off Sherk's nuts he is not that great.Originally Posted by Sir Savage

I'd love to see those two fireplugs go at it...think it'd be a good fight.

I think Serra/Sherk at 155 would be much, much, much closer than Serra/GSP as well.Originally Posted by Alexander

No, I don't want to hop off of Sherk's nuts.Originally Posted by Alexander
He would dominate Serra. He's much faster and stronger.

That's really sad. I would pick Sherk to win, but I think it would be a pretty good fight, and definitely a closer fight then GSP/Serra.Originally Posted by Sir Savage

I wonder if Crocop will fight Sylvia after this a la Anderson, or if he will have another fight before his shot at the title. Maybe Herring will have a rematch since they are both fighting around the same time.

I don't want to see Herring-CC right away. I think it would ruin Herring. I say build up Herring with another easy fight after his UFN fight then put him against Arlovski with a title shot on the line. The title shots could go Vera, Crocop, Herring/Arlovski. HW's getting interesting.
It's unclear to me how good Sherk is. He's def. a veteran, but hasn't fought too many name fighters. He beat a young Karo twice, and Diaz, lost a somewhat competitive fight to Hughes, and got stomped by GSP which most people would. Personally, I don't think Serra has anything to offer besides jiu jitsu and I think Sherk could stay out of trouble.

You don't like my mad fresh linguistics??Originally Posted by Alexander
I also think it would be closer than GSP-Serra, but just about anything would be closer than GSP-Serra so that's not really saying much.
