CroCop says he will fight Nogueira in Rio, UFC 134, if the UFC want to make the match following on from comments from the Nogueira camp last week

Fighters Only exchanged text messages with CroCop earlier and got the following response:

“Yes I saw the comments made by Nogueira’s boxing coach and I agree. I am ready to fight Nogueira any time, even in Brazil in August.”

crocop was doing alright against schaub to be fair; that KO came out of nowhere. Although it was off a crap punch and a bit of an anti climax imo

Are you serious? Dana White said Cro Cop was finished, Cro Cop said he was probably at the end....both of these guys are pretty much at the twilights of their careers. This is a novelty match, nothing more....if Dana makes it, its all about the $$ so if enough ppl want it I'm sure it will happen.

Cro Cop is my favorite fighter of all time and this is pretty much the only fight I want to see him in. If he guarantees retirement win or lose after then there is no better way for him to end his career than against Nog in the UFC.

The first was a classic, people have wanted the rematch for years  They aren't at the top any more but it can still be a great fight. Couture vs Nogueira - both coming off KOs + losing their titles, but still a great fight when it happened Wanderlei vs Chuck - same thing

I would actually still pick CC in the rematch. He held his own for a while and busted up JDS with that straight left and also was handily out striking Schaub before getting caught. In the Mir fight he showed how tough his back skin was, not caring about it grinding on the cage all night long.But Nog doesn't have the speed or power of any of those guys, and is actually probably still slower than Cropcop and without the ability to intimidate or back him up much with strikes.I also still think he'll struggle to get CC down to use his subs and can't take as much damage himself these days.CC by TKO.

Who cares about this fight? Neither of them pose any threat to any legitimate fighter in the division.
