i have to disagree. wandy's taken a few big losses as champ and that hasn't done much to hurt him. also, with a double champion i think thats a great marketing tool for pride gaining popularity in the states. UFC always talks about the possibility of brandon vera doing it and cro cop is a lot better fighter than him, so i think it would be a great move. of course, it wouldn't last forever, but it would be a hell of an exciting run, i'm sure. but this is all IF and only IF Cro Cop can beat Fedor
