    Pick the best Stipe you've ever seen then go watch Cro cop against Fedor. Both at their best Cro cop ko's him, totally different level striker imo, Stipe has to take him down or its sleep time 100%

    Mirko knocks him out cold. No bias here

    Yeah but what about Randleman, Gonzaga? Crocop had a average chin. He wasn't a perfect fighter he was beatable In his prime.

    I say In a cage Stipe , in a ring Cro cop is favored.

    Pride days his chin was fine, Gonzaga won fair and square but I don't think he wins more than 1-2 out of 10 if they fought..Stipes chance is on the ground if anywhere for me, Cro cop is better offence arsenal, hands an feet...They all lose, especially in pride where they were matched tough every fight, that's why Fedor prime was so special, he always found away against monsters..Randleman was very talented

    Mirko is much better on the feet but I think if Stipe takes him down he can win

    A prime Cro Cop was able to stuff Barnetts takedowns, I dont think he will have difficulty with Miocic’s.

    Cro-Cop at his best was a very special fighter. He fought some of the best K1 dudes and was competitive and won his share too. Barnett was an exceptional wrestler who not only had trouble getting Mirko down, but also with submitting him. Crocop had underrated BJJ skills. It's my opinion that Cro-Cop > Miocic, even though Stipe is a world-class guy himself. Could Stipe win? Sure. But if I had to bet on a guy, it would be Cro Cop.

    because of the ropes , most takedowns get pushed to the ropes where they can't really get slammed cause they grab the ropes. The grappling changes when you have a cage. you can shoot doubles a lot better. he went 4-6 in the ufc to note, losing to Brendan schaub. He would get dominated in the cag by stipe even when he was juicing.

    he joined at his peak when he had a five fight streak beating Barnett. he would lose the following year to kongo and Gab,anytime he fought under the ufc logo against a decent opposition he was swept in the cage. He does better in the ring and far away from usada.

    The wars in kickboxing and Pride FC as well as his amateur boxing days caught up to him when he went to the UFC. Also every fighter on the UFC is on roids, so stop bringing that up.
