He should be an announcer.
I would like to see him get fed a can just for one last LHK.
You could really see this on his face. Even his 'tale of the tape' picture.
It was a joke. I was reflecting on his interview with Rogan after the Sanchez fight when he barely said a word.
I think he has just aged and outgrew his killer instinct. Im happy to see him be able to walk away and keep his pride. He knows he isnt a top caliber fighter, anymore, and he just isnt hungry enough. Still my favorite fighter, ever.
poor cro cop. he may be croatian but i'll always have a soft spot in my heart for him
Sad about the whole situation. Its like watching the Nature channel and seeing the old lion getting killed or run outta his territory by the younger more testosterone filled lion.
He just doesnt have the hunger anymore.
excuses excuses excuses
Uh, did you read it?
going to miss Cro-cop
Great statements by him and it should be an honorable goodbye.
You can't be elite forever and we need to remember that unlike many fighters, CC was a legit military man. That takes a toll on your mind and body long before you step into competitive training and fights.
its really sad to read shit like this to someone that you admire.
Yeah there's got to be someone to troll the respectful understanding people here, good job on that.
Anyway, like I said, there aint no fighter more deadly than an agressive action pushing crocop
I'll NEVER forget when he blew the kiss, taunting wanderlei silva.. etc.
He was a badass motherfucker and I hope if he has 2 or 1 more fight on any contract with the UFC it's with a huge name.
still respect him. sad to see him go. But atleast he isnt delusional. And knows he is done. That is very honorable. I wish him well.
That reminds me of Mike Tyson's post-fight interview in his last fight when he admitted that he didn't have the fire anymore.
sucks but I guess it was time. In memory of cro cop here is the best hl reel of cro cop I've seen.
I'm gunna miss him.
that broke my heart right there. I understand hating cro cop nuthuggers, we're a stubborn bunch, but i dont get hating cro cop.
DALLAS – While Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic's (25-7-2 MMA, 2-3 UFC) career-long reputation in combat sports as a feared striker will likely always be remembered, the Croatian undoubtedly wishes his time in the UFC be quickly forgotten.
Now after another lackluster performance in the octagon in the co-feature of Saturday night's UFC 103 event, it appears Filipovic's troubled UFC run may now be coming to an end.
"I'm not saying that I've ever been at the level of a Mirko 'Cro Cop' or any of these guys, but I used to fight," UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "You get to a certain age where you remember what you used to be able to do, and you can see all the openings. You just can't pull the trigger. I think that's where he's at."
What a shame. I hate seeing a great fighter go out like this.
couldnt have said it better man.
