    That would be pretty epic, cro cop would have taken out two decent fighters, and maybe retire on a winning note!

    2-3 low kicks from Mirko to those knees that have to carry all that weight, poor man Baruto aint gonna be walking for weeks, and he can forget about those runs on the sandy beaches...

    As long as CC circles backwards instead of going backwards in a line (ala TK, Fujita, etc) then he should be able to put a hurting on Baruto.
    They will be aggressive about standups since it's the finals and Baruto isn't going to be submitting CC.

    A lot of the cornermen and pros here are picking Baruto to beat CC. The big reason is B is much quicker than people seem to realize. And when you're that big and get off the line quick, it is not easy to circle away in a square.

    However, I think the refs will be very quick to break up clinches and ground stalls. So I think Baruto is stopped pretty early.

    If grappling with Lawal tired out CC, I can only imagine what it will be like with Baruto. Being gassed out, he won't be able to land strikes with a lot behind them.

    If I were to guess how Cro Cop would win it would be to land some 1-2 combination right at the start of the fight or the start of the 2nd round. Other than that, I don't see what he can do; he's only gonna wind up on his back.

    Will depend on how well Baruto can eat Cro Cop's strikes. I think there is no doubt that CC lands on Baruto multiple times, if Baruto can charge through the strikes and get the TD's he'll probably win, but there is also a good chance he succumbs to Cro Cop's power eventually.

    And who says that grappling with Lawal tired out CC?.....Joe Warren?.....CC is well prepared and his conditioing is good for years now...CC constantly says that conditioning is most important and i am sure his cardio is great...

    If Cro Cop murks Baruto and Fedor beats Mitrione, match them up in Bellator - it would be a great finale to their careers

    It doesn't matter if you don't like Joe Warren, Cro Cop's mouth was open like he was getting winded. No question he was breathing heavy. Grappling with Baruto, a much bigger man is going to tire out Filipovic, between fighting to keep from going down to the mat and having Baruto on top of him. Baruto will be on Mirko like white on rice.

    I know you like him and all, but he did not look good and that ending didn't convince me "Cro Cop is back."

    Mirko will smash his face for sure but B. Kaito has heart and a chin. I feel like he will win via split decision or they will go into overtime round, because CC will land some good shots but Baruto will also get him to the ground.

    How did he not look good?...that was his best performance in years probably considering who his opponent was......he threw 8 kicks in the fight....thats probably more than he threw in half of his UFC fights combined.....and those were powerful and fast kicks....he hasn't throw them like that in a very long time.....he was mixing it up with knees and nice hand combos.....he even attempted a trip on Mo....his TDD was great except that one low kick that Mo catched at the beginning...and at the end he knocked Mo out......you can't say that wasn't a good performance by 42 yrs old Cro Cop...it was great performance.......plus i don't think he was tired.....CC often has open mouth......and he was pushing forward......when youre gassed you don't push forward.......
     
  16. Just like he couldn't beat mo, right? Lol


    That fat sumo sucks. He won't last 1 Rd with cro cop.


    And amir isn't even making it to the finals. He's horrible too

  17. Joe Warren, ladies and gentlemen.


    You did a horrible job commentating the other night
     
  18. I rewatched the fight. Mo literally landed 2 strikes on the ground and 3 on his feet on the first Rd. While cc landed 3 hard body kicks and a few uppercuts. Cc won the first Rd.


    Idiots who can't judge for themselves let Joe Warren give them an opinion. Cc literally deflected every shot on the ground. Mo only landed 2 itty-bitty body shots. Cc even punched mo in the face from his back.

    This ain't ufc, it ain't bellaboring. Lay and pray doesn't win you shit in Japan

    CC has a legitimate chance to actually land the LHK in this fight

    i think he should throw the body kick with full power to an opponent who probably cant move out of the way as his main game plan

    cant wait to see what happens
