Herring Off UFC 99, Cro Cop vs. Velesquez?
Heath Herring has been forced to withdraw from UFC 99 due to an illness. Maybe those Germans are poisoning all the UFC 99 fighters?
Speculation is great because it allows us to see all the options the UFC has, like having Cro Cop fight Cain Velasquez.But I think the UFC wants to have both Cro Cop and Cain Velasquez win so my speculation is Cain will beat down some other UFC heavyweight and Cro Cop will still face Al Turk. But a Velasquez, Cro Cop fight would be the better option for fans for obvious reasons(as in it won’t suck, and we’ll have more reason to call Mirko the greatest UFC bust of all time if he loses)
As it stands now, hopefully with no more illnesses, UFC 99 is headlined by Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva and airs live on pay per view June 13th.
