    Overeem vs. Kharitonov is awesome news. Hunt vs Lebanner should be good. I hate Lebanner. Looks like a good card.

    I love how they throw Choi in with the wolves. Actually, the way that Cro-Cop's been fighting lately, Choi might stand a chance. Still highly unlikely though… Alvarez vs. Aoki could be the Fight of the night. Hansen vs. Cavalcante should be interesting as well. As for Gegard, that guy keeps getting better and better. He belongs in the UFC. No taking anything away from the Japanese organizations but he would be a household name in no time in the states…

    Good for Cro cop and going back to K1 rules.

    I think he'll have a longer Career in K1 rules than MMA rules.

    i wouldn't say there throwing choi to the wolves he is a k-1 fighter and has beaten some of the best in the business and it won't be a easy fight for cro cop.

    i agree with you tom if crocop has any chance of beating such a giant it will be his leg kicks that are the deciding factor aslong as one of HMC's huge hands dont crush his face and land flush

    Ill take that bet Ill take Hong Man Choi in this one he moves well for a such a big dude. Cro Crop is in trouble unless hes found the old version of himself.

    However yeah this card is great no one has said anything about Shinya vs Alvarez. These are the no 2 and no 3-4 lightweights in the world fighting each other. Alvarez is arguably a top fifteen p4p er> One could argue that this is the best matchup of the year of non UFC fighters.
