Sherdog.com Preview: PRIDE “Final Conflict” Part III — Fedor vs. “Cro Cop”

Introduction

Aug 26, 2005
If you’re a mixed martial arts fan, Sunday night is a holiday. You will close off the outside world and kick back with your friends to enjoy what could be the greatest night of fighting in MMA history.

On Thursday we dissected the Middleweight Grand Prix. Today, it’s all about the big one: the heavyweight championship, which has been nearly two years in the making.

The noise in the ring prior to the Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures) vs. Mirko Filipovic (Pictures) bout will be as deafening as the champion’s punch to the ear and the audience’s hearts will beat faster than a “Cro Cop” left round kick. You just get the feeling that if you miss this show, you’ll live to regret it.
