    Yeah the Fujita fight shocked me. Wand is walking around at about 215 now (I watched a workout video of his that said he was going to get up to that for the tournament). All that means is his strikes have some more force behind them, which is scary. I think he's reaching his absolute peak, and is going to rip through his next three fights.. Yes, three fights, before the potential showdown with Fedor.

    I love both of these guys but I think this time it's so incredibly close with the way these guys have developed over the years, either one could KO 50/50.

    A small part of me though wants to see CroCop win and go on to win the OWGP because he has not won anything big from his K-1 days or in PRIDE. AND I want Wanderlei to be fresh for Chuck.

    But then again I love Wanderlei, and Wanderlei VS Fedor would be crazy, as much as CroCop deserves a rematch with Fedor.

    i just rewatched it and there wasn't a whole lot of domination in the standup on Wandy's size. Wandy engaged a lot more though, and he did do some good work the few times he got the Muay Thai clinch, his knees made some good connections. however, i wouldn't call it domination, just engaging the more hesitant Cro Cop

    and most of the 1st and 2nd rounds, Wandy took Cro Cop down, and used some GnP, but didn't have the ability to win the fight


    and i do agree that Cro Cop does not perform well when being stalked, he's very methodical and likes to be able to step back and pick his shots

    it's an interesting matchup, since Cro Cop is methodical, picking his shots and destroying his opponent in combinations, but Wandy charges in and tries to rip the other guys head off. interesting matchup of mindset


    WAR CRO COP
    Last time they fought Wand out struck him and most of the fight was on the feet.What the fuck do you mean Crocops shitty takedown defense??? I think Wand takes this b/c Crocop buckels under pressure-(Hunt/Crocop Crocop was litterally running away from Hunt.Crocop/Wand Crocop was getting beat up)The only reason the last fight was a draw was b/c of special rules in which there were no judges.

    Omg I Cant Fuckin Decide....i Think Cro Cop Mite Take It Now...but Its Hard To Say Casue Wandy Dominated The Striking In There First Fight...givin It Was A Long Time Ago And Blah Blah Blah...this Is Going To Be A War... I Dont Think Wandy Will Let Cro Cop Pussy Out Like He Did With Hunt... I Love Both These Guys And I Think Whoever Wins This Could Acually Win The Tourney...

    i say crocop not really sure why but a part of me wants the fight to end without wand fighting a lot so he wont get hurt so he can go on to fight liddell

    I would like to see Crocop win this one, but either way it should be a great fight.
