Cro Cop did wear shoes, this is true. He threw alot of kicks at Hunt, some landed, some didn't. Hunt took the ones that landed pretty good. It was a good fight to watch, but it was frusterating watching Cro Cop move away. He was pretty flustered that he couldn't KO the big man.
I think the best kickboxer in PRIDE is Hunt. He's a K-1 GP champion and can take a mean ass shot.
