    Cro Cop would have destroyed the light heavyweight division. He was too proud though to cut the weight.

    I think so, he is not a big heavyweight ad he pretty much weighs as much as a light heavyweight fighter usually weighs.

    When he fought Wanderlei, Silva was actually 5 pounds heavier than Crocop.

    I have no doubt on my mind he would have had a better run at 205.

    Impossible pride weighed him down and left him with no choice but to fight the big guys.

    I doubt it. Being that lean at 220-230 doesn't give me any idea that he could.

    Considering Wand fought at MW in the UFC, I'm thinking Mirko could've made LHW

    He may be shorter but look how wide Fedor looks in that picture. No, wait. Forget it. It's just the design on his unbelievably perfect sweater.

    Cro Cop has said numerous times that he couldn't cut the weight. Simple as that.

    False, false, false. It is actually the exact opposite.

    It easier to make the cut when you are muscular opposed to fat. Losing weight and cutting weight are two entirely different things. CC didn't cut anything at HW and to give you and idea, yesterday Jon Jones was 219 and tonite/tomorrow he will be cutting to 205. Heck Castillo was like 167 yesterday and is cutting to 155. Cutting from 220 to 205 is an absolute walk in the park with today's methods/technology.

    Nobody goes in a sauna to make 220.

    He could have fought at 205, but was probably a year or two past being the guy who could have won the title.

    Care to explain this point a little more? Not saying I disagree just want to see how you would back this up.

    Never listen to fighters tell you they can't cut weight. Use your eyes and decide if they mean "won't".
