Does anyone know, when using Ticket Master, do they take your money when you order the tickets, or when they send the tickets out? As I guess they wont have the tickets until next month?

Heavyweight Bout: Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipović vs. Gabriel Gonzaga

I don't know much about UFC but Mirko should win that shouldnt he? From what I've seen he is nasty with those kicks

I dont like Crocop, all kicks and not much else.

I like Tito because his personality more than his skills. The whole drama around him is quality, love the weigh ins with his the press conferences, then his celebrations etc etc.

I am, hence the reason I spent £250 on tickets. The thing is the I have only been into it for about 2 years, watched things like Ultimate Fighter and thats what got me to know the fighters really, so like a sport I have "my favourites" like Tito

Crocop has no personality, so doesnt appeal to me, and is just kicks.

I like to support people, like Tito, GSP, Bisping etc. So obviously the ultimate fighter series has a big impact on who I want to see fight

Ok, I get the no personality thing, but saying crocop is all about the kicks is mental. Yes, its his prime "weapon" but he also got better hands then most (CC > Tito in every way you can measure a fighter) and great TD defense (yes a great TD defense is beautiful to watch)

I know I´ll rather watch a good fight inside the ring/cage then drama in the pressroom.

but thats just me Eye-wink

MMA HEADZ.

Pride has 'merged' with UFC.

First can we see Fedor kill Tim Sylvia, then the rematch to end them all, Crocop vs Fedor in a cage.

Crocop took his soul at OWGP 2005 and Dan Henderson killed him at Pride 33 (not actually died)
