    Frank shamrock. Cro cop is another who made his name in Japan then suddenly when he entered America lost most of his fights then went back to Japan an dominated so another juicier.

    Shamrock is a legend of mma one of the most well rounded in the early days he deserves way more recognition but danas ego means we barely hear his name

    Come on, @Headhunter , let's be real. The early MMA guys were juicing like crazy... everywhere. Most of the guys who were in the early UFC events were also or had also competed in Japan. There was a lot of cross pollination.

    I'm taking Frank Shamrock, but not because he was a saint, for crying out loud. I think Cro Cop was mostly a kick boxer, and Frank Shamrock was more well rounded.

    3-2 Frank Shamrock as of the time of this post.

    Yeah....good chance Shamrock and Cro Cop were both juicing.

    Either way I good with either winning. I voted Cro Cop just because for some reason I always liked him.

    Is it just me or is it the same thing every time in these threads? Pretty entertaining though :)

    It's not the same thing. Last time, we were arguing about two completely different guys. :D

    The only advantage Frank Shamrock has over Cro Cop is grappling/submissions. Out of Cro Cop's 50 pro MMA fights he's only lost 3 by submission, Cro Cop would destroy Frank in stand up.

    Unfortunately, I can’t rate the post funny, like, agree, and disagree, and informative all at the same time. The rating system is too restrictive in this instance.
