    Rampage and Cro Cop are back in the UFC. The UFC has thrown Rampage a soft-ball in Maldonado, hopefully Cro Cop get's the same treatment and they both win.

    After that I think it would be cool to see them fight each other at a catch weight or at HW because neither man is going to be challenging for a title but they can have some fun fights against other aging legends.

    What do you guys think? Yay or Nay?

    Rampage talked a lot about heavyweight in Bellator. I like this match-up; much better than CC/Nog. (You'll be left sad for someone regardless of who wins that one.)

    I think Big Nog would be a good welcome back fight for Cro Cop with how they match up. We should take over the match making.

    Nay, Would Rather CroCop vs Nog 2, or Arlovski. The match up sounds great, but I feel like a HW or CW fight would only give Rampage a reason to be lazy.

    That could be Cro Cop's welcome back fight and then if Cro Cop and Rampage both win they could meet at like 225. Rampage still has to be in shape at 225, he says he's like 230 in the cage when fighting at 205 anyway and I don't think Cro Cop would be willing to cut to 205.

    The Arlovski fight would be interesting but if Cro Cop won it would be weird as he would likely be fighting a top 5 guy next and I don't think I want to see Cro Cop fighting guys that good anymore.

    Naw just cause I don't want to risk the possibility of either fighter getting KOed. Hoping Cro-Cop gets a journeyman and not some top gun for his first couple fights.

    Let's see... Mir knocked Crocop out, Nelson knocked Crocop out... Rampage would kill mim.

    I'm pretty sure anybody into MMA would have their eyes glued to this fight - no matter how preposterous it would be.

    sounds good to me. neither is ever going to fight for a belt, so why not just make senior masters type matches. bring couture and lindland back too, imo. and maybe also franklin.

    Why? I don't see that fight being competitive at all. Rampage is a slower more one dimentional opponent that Cro Cop should be competitive with.

    I think Filipovic/Arlovski is better.

    Old school fight that never happened.
