Mayhem is THE underdog, I think it's his time.

Jacare has no chin at all.

If anything, this fight is more in favor of Mayhem for a lot of reasons.

You honestly think someone getting knocked out ONCE by an upkick in the fucking face means he "has no chin?" That is some of the most armchair athlete bullshit you could possibly say relating to MMA. You would probably try and counter my argument by saying Macaco knocked him out too, but I'll save us a couple steps and just point out you don't know who he is now.

Greg Jackson and probably no one else will come up with a good enough game plan to beat Machida anytime soon. I can't stand Rashad and have never really liked him (and I love wrestlers). Sugar just gets on my nerves and is rather disrespectful. I see him getting really frustrated in later rounds making a mistake. I also could this fight getting boo'd probably 2 minutes in. Maybe even worse then Silva/Leites

It's crazy that everyone's counting out an undefeated champion. I hope he would win before everyone got on Machida's jock, now I really want him to win.

Can't believe they're feeding Al-Turk to him. Even if he is past his prime, he will destroy this dude. They must really want him to get a win.

Hopefully he LHKs him out of the UFC and works his way up to a rematch with Gonzaga and Kongo and destroys them on his way to a title shot.

Well then I guess we better hope he doesn't fight Kongo again because he may end Crocops career via nutstrike.

Cro cop better not think he can just stroll in and have the belt in three fights without training in a cage again. If he is focused and committed cro cop has a chance to make some waves.

It is not, I registered near easter so I went with it. I am a big futurama fan, but it is not in reference to the Farnsworth quote.

I still need to see how Mir looks against Lesnar to decide if he's for real again or not. He looked amazing in that fight, but I need to see another performance like that to be a believer.

there was footage from last year of cro-cop training in a UFC-style octagon cage installed in his home gym. not sure if its still there obviously. if he can get his takedown defense back to what it was in pride and also work on defending elbows from the guard, he'll have some things to offer.

also al-turk is an ADCC champion. his UFC record isn't great but hes far from a can.

They will probably toss him up against carwin if he does well against al-turk.

I am hoping that Al-Turk acts like Sanchez did and loses the fight before it even begins. Cro Cop by decapitating Al-Turk and sending his head into the bleachers via cartoonish left high kick.

B.j has been one of the biggest disappointments since he got smashed by gsp,acted like a complete dick.

But I do think he is going to walk through kenny,at 155 he is pretty much unstoppable.

Kenny is a champ, he'll put a up good fight.

He's training with DellaGrotte (like always) as well as TriStar. If Kenny can out wrestle BJ and be quick on the ground. He'll bust up BJ's face and we'll hopefully see a new LW champion.

Love Crocop, but you have to take his return with a grain of salt. Two losses to Gonzaga and Kongo, then two victories against Tatsuyo Mizuno (they might as well have grabbed a guy off the street) and Hong Man Choi (lol) isn't saying much.

I hope he HKs his way back into a contender's spot though. I think AlTurk is a perfect opponent for him to get started.

cro-cop on the night of the pride open weight grand prix was good enough to beat anyone in the world, including fedor. hes one of the reasons i got into MMA early on, one of my all-time favorites.

i'm a little skeptical and a little optimistic about him coming back. hoping for the best though.

I'm not so sure about that. Matt Hamill has won his last two fights, and looked good doing that. I doubt they'll let him go because of a loss to Brandon Vera.

Vera, maybe, but I'd expect more if he lost two in a row, not just this fight.
