Legend has it that when you defeat another fighter you absorb his powers. Kind of like Kirby, but on a much larger scale and you don’t have to consume the other fighter whole. Actually, it’s more like Highlander. Yeah Highlander. Remember Highlander? It had a 2000 year old James Bond cutting off peoples heads on grassy hills. Either way, these power sucking scenarios may spell out grim tidings for Mirko Cro Cop. His opponent for UFC 128, Brendan Schaub, defeated Gabriel Gonzaga last fall. Gabriel Gonzaga ironically KO’d Mirko with that famous head kick almost 4 years ago. So in other words, Brendan Schaub absorbed the powers of the guy who absorbed Cro Cop’s powers, thus Cro Cop is fighting himself tonight in football player form? I think I just blew my own mind. Read about Brendan Schaub guaranteeing to finish Cro Cop tonight!
With the Frank Mir fight, you can come down to my gym in Denver any Tuesday, pay $19.95 for a more exciting session than his last fight. So it’s Frank Mir’s fault, too, not pushing the pace.

“This one’s not going to a decision, I guarantee it,” he said. “It’s going to be a convincing knockout or submission. I can’t predict when, but this fight’s not going all three.”
How incredible would it be if they double KO’d each other with a right leg head kick? Who knows whose powers would go where. I’m thinking Bruce Buffer.
