    when we talk about legendary strikers in MMA we don't miss the name Cro Cop on the list but to you is he the most fearsome?

    Hes the first one that comes to mind when I think of a devastating striker. Made a career out of kicking people in the face, I doubt there are many Heavyweight's who have scored more KO's via head kick.

    CroCop might be at the top of that list for now but Rumble is making a strong case for himself.

    He did get KO'd by Randleman and Gozaga in his prime though.

    I would say so . In just a stand up fight I would pick Cro Cop over anyone (in mma)

    I think it's got to be Anderson.

    Crocop was up there, but even in Pride we saw him draw with a light heavyweight, get KOed by Randleman, get out struck by Fedor (and I think Hunt), and get tapped by Nog despite CC hitting him repeatedly with some big strikes. All that was during his prime.
