Default Filipovic vs Schaub

Does Filipovic have a good chance?

Who is this guy hes fighting?

Do you think Mirko has it in him to beat this guy? This event is not to far away, and i was wondering what everyones thoughts are..

No. Mirkos shot mentally and physically to a lesser degree

I have no hope left in Mirko. Having hope that he will return to a form that even slightly resembles his past self has only led to disappointment. Schaub is a solid prospect who will probably end up being a nice addition to the fairly weak HW division, and Cro-Cop will likely just be a feather in his cap. Schaub would have no chance against a prime Cro-Cop.

I would absolutely love to see Cro-Cop prove me wrong.

After the debacle of the Mir fight I don't expect anything from Mirko. The only reason he hasn't been released is popularity. He's an okay gatekeeper I guess. If Schaub has top 10 ambitions at heavy he should beat the current version of Mirko.

cro cop is over, he is to old now, if the prime crocop would be fighting like when he fought fedor then he would win hands down but age punches everyone in the face at one point or another

Don't worry the UFC will be cutting CC in record time now. He's not needed any more now that they have SF.

Prime CC makes Schaub his bitch quite easily. Some times people forget just how awesome he was. He is a shell of himself and really should ride off before he gets hurt. It's always sad to watch these guys get old in front of your eyes.

Like many have said....CC is just a shell of himself. He would land a Sunday shot on Schaub, but don't see it. This fight is the same as they do in boxing. A young fighter vs an old fighter that is done. Again every once in a blue moon the old fighter can turn back time just enough to win the fight. But Cro-Cop hasn't showed anything that would make me think it could happen. Schaub much like Meathead is getting a push from the UFC.

Schaub's stand-up game is similar to Dos Santos', but not nearly as good. I won't be surprised if Cro Cop knocks him out.

Wont happen. Cro Cop barely landed on a stationary Frank Mir. Now one thing you can say about Shaub is he's mobile. Mirkos gonna be eating jabs for 15 minutes solid

2nd quality fight who will probably lose because he is mentally shot to shit. Like Gonzaga, Cro Cop has all it takes to beat Schaub but will he put it together on the night.

I'm not so sure, CC had a great camp and is in great shape compared to a fairly green Schaub should make a good fight.
