    No chance will the UFC cut CroCop mate, he's a massive draw in Europe and when they get back into Japan (If he's still fighting then) he'll 100% be there.

    He may retire, but he'll never get cut.

    You could be onto something with that one, though! Laughing



    My predictions;

    1. CroCop left high kicks his way back to the very top of the HW division, KO'ing Schaub, Nelson and JDS en route to becoming the champion. cheers Nah, i'm joking, he'll lose to Schaub and then retire.

    2. GSP continues to dominate WW but still doesn't move up to MW.

    3. Fedor goes 1-1. (If he even fights twice)

    4. Kimbo loses his boxing debut.

    5. Brock mangles Mir for the third straight time after they do TUF.

    6/7. JDS KO's Cain and Rogan claims it to be the "JDS era".

    8. Anfield has another highly successful year of both being biased and shit stirring.

    9. Ancelotti gets sacked a few days into the New Year.

    10. West Ham avoid relegation.

    Don't count on the UFC going back to Japan for a long time if ever. Too much red tape and a massively hostile business culture for international companies. South Korea is a safer bet.

    It is China. But South Korea remains the most promising market. MMA has a much higher profile there than most realise.

    Sylvia gets another fight in UFC

    A.Silva to lose his MW title

    Thought it would be interesting for everyone to see how they got on, before putting a new predictions thread on.

    2010 I got one right (I think), 2011 some terrible ones, but Davis and Jones salvaged 2/10 for me (what the fuck was I thinking with Sylvia and Machida though)?

    Well after the schaub loss,where dana said cro-cop was done in the UFC,they gave him one more chance to save his UFC career,basically,win and keep fighting,lose and your out of the UFC,he lost and he's out,cut,done,see ya bye.

    I'm sure you'll claim it was a retirment,but that was a statement of a guy who already knew pre fight that he was out of the UFC if he lost again.
