    DC's forte is how Hunt & Fedor beat CC.

    This isn't a tough question. Cro Cop clearly.

    Where's the Randleman KO , Gonzaga , the Sanchez fight? Granted , he was old , but so is Cormier.

    I think DC is better by a narrow margin. Made it to what 39 before getting knocked out , that's impressive as hell at that level.

    It's tough. I'd probably say out of 10 fights Crocop wins 7 or 8 IMO.

    I think it'd be much like CroCop vs Fedor with CroCop dominating the standup (while they were standing) but spending a lot of the fight on his back and losing on points.

    CroCop is 'only' 5 years older than DC so it's a shame DC didn't come to MMA earlier or the fight could have happened. DC was 26 when Pride Conflict 2005 happened, so it's a shame he didn't quit wrestling after Athens and move to MMA.

    DC would take him. CC won't be throwing any headkicks cos DC will be on him like white on rice

    You guys are looking at the records.
    I didn't put those gifs just to compare the kick skills of DC and Cro Cop. DC does not have a very good fight IQ. He has solid boxing (for an MMA guy, of course) and wrestling. But to try those horrible kicks, when you should know from training that you are just too fat for them...

    Yes, aware of the fact that Cro Cop had some losses. Those were other times. There were times when fighters fought 8 times a year, like Cro Cop did. Or twice in a single evening, like Cro Cop did. Also, he had some amazing wins by KO. Cormier had a single impressive KO, when he fought Bigfoot. He struggled with guys like Anderson or Gus and it still amazes me the stupidity of Rumble when he decided to wrestle him.

    I am not saying DC is not a good fighter. Clearly he is doing something good, since he only lost to Jones.
    But, like other user said, I believe that Prime Cro Cop defeats Prime DC 7 or 8 out of 10.

    Crocop is the correct answer.

    I loved watching CC fight. But D.C. Is a better athlete and if he does what fighters did that beat CC (circle away) and be aggressive in close, I pick D.C. Gonzaga killed him.

    I would rather see a D.C. Fedor fight. Man that would be sweet.

    Like both but going with Cormier. The guy is just that damn well-rounded.

    In my mind I cannot let very many fighters be better than prime Cro Cop.
