    Cormier's slow fat ass never gets his hands on Cro Cop.

    And if DC gets too close he gets KTFO. Andersons skinny legs and Jon's skinny legs hurt DC. A kick from CroCop puts DC in the hospital.

    I was just playing on the fact Crocop's greatest loss was by headkick. I love both fighters.

    Cormier sure as shit has thrown beautiful headkicks in his time though.

    Thanks, mate.

    I don't often buy MMA affiliated gear, but those socks are amazing.

    I think Crocop would beat Cormier and finish him. Sure, Cormier could take him down and win by points, but that proved to be very difficult and dangerous for most guys at that time.

    So the kicks clearly go to DC, how about the wrestling?

    Really? DC easily, his only losses are to roided up JJ. Cro Cop got KO'd by Mir, Gonzaga, and world beater Brendan Schaub. DC would literally pick him up like a child like he did to Barnett and drop him on his head.

    Cormier has 21 fights and Cro Cop has 50.

    Not to mention his 30 fights in kickboxing.

    Yes, aware of the fact DC is an olympic wrestler.

    Cro-cop was ko'd in his prime by Randleman and DC only has lost to a roided up Jones. Mirko is the most overrated hw ever imo and would get exposed against DC. Plus Mirkos prime he was on the pride juice take that away and it's DC easy.

    CroCop was downright scary in his prime.

    Check the reply I received. They are for sale, but they're shipped from Poland. I guess if you're a Euro that is no big deal. I will have to wait six weeks or so.

    The Crocop that beat Mark Coleman with that prime spiral takedown defense vs the Cormier that tossed Barnett all over the place would have been just an absolute dream fight!

    I don't know what direction i'd lean in choosing a winner. It really could go either way.

    If Jones was able send DC to the hospital with a high kick, CroCop would have sent him to the cemetary. CroCop also had a legendary sprawl.

    Why do you people keep comparing juiced fighters to natty fighters? We'll never know because one was on PEDs.

    I would like to order them as well so lmk if you find.

    Also, to TS. Mirko.

    Nobody is afraid of the things DC has to offer. People were legit scared of Mirko's LHK.

    DC is a stud, but Mirko at his peak is probably one of the best fighters in MMA's history.
