One of the most exciting matches of UFC 103 – Crop Cop vs Dos Santos. Both fighters are strikers so it’s guaranteed that there will be lots of action, and someone is going to get knocked out! Aside from that this match also has a lot of relevance to UFC’s heavyweight picture.
Mirko Crop Cop – at one time the most feared striker in MMA and a second best fighter in the world (behind Fedor Emileanenko) Is looking to have a second go at UFC (he got KO’ed by Gonzaga and lost a decision to Kongo during his first attempt) and has made it very clear he wants to get UFC’s heavy weight title.
And while a win over Dos Santos wouldn’t get him a title shot, it would likely put him within one fight of it. A rematch with Nogueira for number one contender is very likely should Cro Cop win this fight.
Dos Santos is looking to add another big name fighter to his win column. With his biggest win being a TKO over Werdum at UFC 90, it is a big step up for him. However a win over Cro Cop would likely put him in the rank of title contenders. Although because he trains with Nogueria the two of them won’t fight. Still there are plenty of fights for him, even outside of the title fight. A fight against Shane Carvin or Cain Levasqueze would be interesting. As well as a fight with another striker in Kongo.
So get ready to watch UFC103 live as these two heavy weights battle it out. As one of them tries to make a come back and show the fans that he is still one of the top fighters in MMA and the other is trying to make a name for himself. It’s going to be a hell of a fight, and you definitely don’t won’t to miss it!
