    Yeah.. Nog lost to Fedor on points. He's still on of the greatest fighters in the world. CroCop has yet to beat a top fighter. I don't doubt that he has the potential to do so, but up until now he's only beaten a bunch of good fighters, not great ones.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    Kazushi Sakuraba, Josh Barnett, Kevin Randleman arent top fighters? They were all champions at one point in time.

    Barnett beat himself.

    Kevin Randleman
    They're 1-1 and Randleman doesn't know basic submission defence.

    Cro Cop is good, but he's no Darth Fedor.

    He's tough, strong, FAST as hell and can submit.
    And do you know WHY he can submit?

    Saku is much smaller than CroCop, and after his first fight with Wandy he just lost his spark.

    Barnett dislocated his own shoulder. CroCop did not win by any effort of his own.

    Randleman is a moron, and hasn't beaten anyone of note in the last couple of years (his last matchup with CroCop proved that their previous match was a fluke).

    A win is a win.

    I voted for Fedor I am just saying, Cro Cop is an incredible fighter and hasnt fought absolute cans or been given his spot in Pride.

    I'm goin' with Mir.

    he's big, he's strong, and his submission game is top-notch. What he really needs is a quality opponent to prove if he's as good as he looks. Arlovski should be a good acid test for him.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    I voted Nog, I think overall he has the most skill. If there was a "worst" option it would have gone to Sylvia.
