    Sakakibara "guaranteed to be a ferocious (standing) battle"

    "ferocious battles" cost PRIDE fighters.........

    Giant Ochiai - death
    Yoshihiro Takayama- stroke
    Sakuraba - ear

    Many ended up stuttering, having serious surgeries, and disabling families.

    But I like to support this fight. Both are determined to kill or get killed and K-1 Kosaka will inspire aging pops around the world by boxing with the air for 3 minutes and half.

    So how about we just skip this one and add a TKO loss to TK's record and save him some brain cells?

    I wonder who turned the fight down, seems like a huge missed opportunity for a rising talent. I figured TK wasn't the first choice but it's still not good.

    I only knew who TK is, when Hunt smashed him in 2006. I just thought of him as another Japanese HW fighter who will always will get beat by the elites. Plus, the DQ win over Fedor is bullshit

    Mirko would like to fight Fedor on any terms, so it was not Mirko's condition. And Cro Cop is very sad that rematch with Fedor will not happen.

    Probably Bellator or Millen or whoever is in charge placed that condition that Fedor has to beat Mitrione in order to be allowed to fight Cro Cop or as a condition for that fight to happen, or Fedor himself didn't want to accept the fight.

    I understand that but tk is an elderly human.

    Ksw Champ Marcin Rozalski was throwing his name out there, Mirko would have sell the fight alone no need for tk

    Cro Cop also said in that post that he still does not know anything, so there is still a possibility that he will refuse Koshaka and fight somebody else.

    I wasin't expecting a Cro Cop return, so as an addition to a weekend I'm already sold on I think it's okay.

    Man i don't know. Mirko justifies this by saying he needs a fight to stay in rhythm but a part from the ambient, this fight offers nothing over a regular sparring session. Well, ambient and the money.

    The fuck...

    Mirko has a fairytale career ending finishing guys like Mo, Baruto and Ali - but he wants to stick around to fight Kosaka? This is just dumb.

    This really isn't that bad of a fight considering the circumstances.

    He out-cardioed James Thompson before that. It's not like Baruto did anything to "win."

    Whats the point of having a 50 year old guy get koed? if they wanna give him a can, at least give him a young and healthy one, this reminds me of Overeem vs Fujita.

    James Thompson had like two days of training for that fight though.

    Maybe so. When JT fought Yoshida it was pretty much the same story but the other way around.

    TK didn't look horrible was what I was trying to get across.
