How bad am I going to cringe when I watch him fight Cro Cop.

I'm a big Forrest Griffin fan, and it was pretty brutal watching him getting knocked out tonight. Keith Jardine, who I didn't think was worthy of fighting Griffin, just crushed him. I felt some major pain in my stomach. Vera and Cro Cop, will it be like that?

There are rumors that Vera was going to Pride or at least going to fight in the MWGP next year, but who knows.

I think Vera has a better chance against Cro Cop than Sylvia does, but he still can't beat him. Cro Cop doesn't get caught in clinches and his striking is so feared that noone wants to get close to him.

Noone in the ufc can beat Cro Cop and the only person in the world who can (and did) is Fedor.

Yeah, I have sopcast but I don't know what channel and it's going mad slow.

Look for a "NEO PRIDE" or something channel near the top, I just saw it. It is working fine for me and I just have a regular DSL connection.

Vera vs Cro Cop would not be close to that type of comparison because Cro Cop would be the favorite. Cro Cop stiking weapons are like no other heavyweight in that division. Vera is a pretty petient fighter but I don't know of anybody (except Hunt) that can take a blow from Cro Cop. Not in the UFC heavywight division anyways.

Did you see the fight with Hunt? He took it full force to the head and wasn't even fazed.

Well that's disappointing he may be going to Pride. I've never watched Pride except on youtube. I liked watching Vera in the UFC and was a big fan of his. I realize that he wasn't going to beat Cro Cop unless it was a wicked upset, I was just wondering if it would be like an absolute beatdown ala Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva, or if he would be able to hold his own before getting caugh ala Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz 2.

Thanks for the Information. I can't wait til UFC 67 when Georges St. Pierre defends his title for the first time. GSP is far and away my favourite fighter, and I can't wait til he absolutely rips Matt Serra apart.

haha man, this is the first time I've seen the Japanese version of Pride. I always see the Bas/Quadros/Mauro/Trigg ones.

This is really weird haha.

LOVE IT.

Makes it authentic. I get frustrated though, I feel I can't follow along.

The Japanese one is the one to watch. You get the full intros and everything. Even a long intermission to take a piss and make a sandwich during.

And Yuki Kondo just gets screwed out of another close decision. They should just rename every Pride show with Kondo in it "Pride FC: Watch Yuki Kondo Lose a Split Decision."
