    have you seen how sylvia looks? he looks awfull and hasn't had a kb fight in his life.......he's also very old and loses alot......he has no business in glory except being cannon fodder

    but both rumours must be bullshit

    if they sign tim sylvia to fight crocop I will never watch glory again as they will have jumped the shark. If they are even thinking about it I might just need to take break from kickboxing and go back to midget fighting

    you'dl still watch that fight

    pat barry getting ko'ed is meaningless for the divison, but it was still pretty much what gained the most interest

    Actually Le Banner fights Danilencu next week, so he could be an option.

    This will be Ernesto Hoost's comeback fight, rematch with Cro Cop.

    it would just be casual viewers thing same as pat barry effect

    if the sport was marketed to and match-made for just the hardcore fans who know what they are talking about, it would be useless for tv. Hardcore fans will always watch, its casual and new fans who need bringing in w/names they recognize

    if a fight like Torres offends you, just watch the others

    He actually just fought recently at the Hoost Cup in Japan. Looked great for an old man. Still has nice technique and fight IQ, speed, power and reflexes obviously aren't what they used to be.

    I thought he looked lold and fat

    of course hsi technique is somehwat the same but it just looks sowrong to see a once legendary fighter come back with a big belly and almost 50 years old

    but of course I'd rather see Hoost then sylvia

    it might also just be rumours to get people talking, who knows

    Is Miller even available? That would actually be a good signing for an US guy. Unless, of course, he still asks for huge piles of money. Mwekassa is fighting LHW. Ben Saddik and Gerges are too much for CroCop atm.

    I stick to my first choice and say that Xavier Vigney would be a good choice for the US audience. He is an US guy and his last fight impressed me. Would be a good learning experience for him.

    Ya Miller isn't a bad idea. At least he has a few Kickboxing fights under his belt.

    I'd love to see this fight. It was a classic fantasy match up during the Pride days.

    CroCop was fighting K-1 before he ever fought in PRIDE let alone the UFC. Common knowledge bro.
