This was too $$ not to share. Love the mask in MMA.

This video highlights perfectly the problems that these sports face with so many farcical matchups that are total mismatches. Champions being protected by matches against inferior opponants are far too commonplace
SHHH! Quiet! You might piss somebody off!

Amen, Aussie. Although if you look on Wiki, they list Del Rio's MMA win/loss record and he actually had a pretty decent run. But obviously he was nowhere near Crocop's league. You could tell by looking at him and watching his body language that he was scared to death to be fighting Crocop.

I definitely agree that being "fed" guys who weren't nearly on par was probably one of the keys to Crocop's legendary run in Pride. Put him up against guys that are more on par in UFC and look how he fairs. I suspect the same would happen to Fedor if he ever signed with UFC.

(btw, I'm a big fan of Crocop, I just think the hype from Pride was a little ridiculous)
