Sherdog.com is reporting Cro Cop to the UFC is a done deal, however his camp is saying nothing is official yet.


Rampage has been officially signed and will fight Marvin Eastman in February.

interesting... i would love to see Cro Cop in UFC. there really is no one for Tim Sylvia to fight in UFC these days. and i think he would give Sylvia a beating, unless his skills have fallen off considerably lately, which i have not read or seen to be the case.

any chance of him fighting at 205?

ive only seen Rampage fight a couple times on FSN's coverage of Pride, but in those fights he starts out strong but ended up getting beaten by someone with superior BJJ skills.

I'm really hoping Cro Cop comes to UFC. They need the boost in the HW division badly. I'm really hoping Arlovski can return to form as well and take out that punk Sylvia.

I think its safe to say Rampage is probably on the downside of his career. The toll his body has taken by fighting the top notch guys of a regular basis will do that. His biggest momment was probably his beatdown of Chuck Liddell. He also had 2 great fights against Wanderlei Silva.

Have you seen Brandon Vera? This dude is gonna kill Silvia when he gets the chance. Do a search on youtube for some of his latest fights. I can't see Silvia lasting 3 rounds against him. But then again I've been expecting SIlvia to lose his last 3 fights....he looks like an oversized penguin with the goofiest stance everrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
