UFC's heavyweight picture = Mir, Nog, Lesnar, Carwin, Velasquez, Couture.

"Other" heavyweight picture = Fedor, Arlovski, Barnett, Overeem, Sylvia, Rogers.

I'd much rather see CC face off with UFC heavyweights. Fedor and Overeem are the only fights I can think of that would interest me outside of the UFC. Where as there are many heavyweight fighters who he has never squared off with in the UFC. I also believe the UFC would present a much more difficult route for him.

Although if he does end up not signing for the UFC I understand because of them not giving him enough fights a year. Also, if he doesn't sign with the UFC he could always later, but if he signs with the UFC now he will be their his whole career if he is successful.

My hope is that CC ends up signing with the UFC, what's yours?

He's already proved he's better then Barnett IMO in their 3 fights, I dont want him really to rematch Fedor until later when he establishes dominance again, so the only reason I'd want him outside of the UFC is too rematch and hopefully whoop Overreems behind.

I would like to see him in the UFC and become a legend their as his career ends. Like I said in a thread in the news section, a highlight head kick KO win over Brock for the Heavyweight title would own all other head kick KO wins! That'd be bad ass. Love to see him take Randys head off and rematch Nog too. Want to see him be what he was at the end of PRIDE in the UFC!

UFC... He would absolutely embarass Couture, Carwin, and Valasquez. Mir could possibly last a few rounds and Nougeira hasnt looked his best by far lately and would lose to CC in a rematch. I would also like to see CC rematch GG and get his revenge, as well as NutCheck Kongo...

I hope he stays with the ufc. He looked good and headed back to his old form. I want everyone in the ufc to know what he can do.

I want him to start keeping his hands closed and stop poking ppl in the eyes. Two victories via eyepoke is enuf for anyone's record, imo.

The way CC has looked recently i dont think he has much of a chance against couture, carwin, valasquez, mir, or lesner

Even though if he ever fought lesner i will be praying for LHK KO

The reason why guys like Mirko and Chuck have victories via eye poke is because they like to keep the strikes at a distance with hand defense and counter off punches. That's just something you're going to deal with when you have guys like that fighting.

I don't understand how people get so mad about eye pokes. Obviously it sucks when a fight ends by one, but it is so very common and almost always completely accidental. It's really hard to keep your fingers constantly tucked in MMA gloves, especially when you're fighting a guy who you know wants to shoot in on you.

The best sprawl in the HW division and KO power is a bad matchup for wrestlers who lack overall striking talent to match a K1 level kickboxer?! They are a perfect matchup for him. Carwin almost got KTFO by GG, Cain almost got KTFO many times by Kongo, Mir did get KTFO by Vera, Couture got KTFO by Lesnar....all of whom Mirko has much better striking than....

But I think Crocop is the #2 HW in the world.......when he wants to fight..... so I'm a bit biased

Boo hoo, too me the "thumb in the eye" looked more like a brutal punch that had Mostapha right out of the fight from the second it hit. The better man won.

I wish CC had stuck it out with the ufc as well. After all the BS he promised Dana White, it would have been nice to see him go for another run at ufc's heavyweight crown. There were still some potential interesting matches with couture, lesnar, mir, carwin, etc. Plus, it would have been easier for me to watch his fights . I dont think Dream is going to give him the notorioty he's looking for. After Overeem, then who? Fedor will crush him.
