Cro Cop Knows What You’ve Been Saying About Him

(‘I am here to pick up your daughter. There is dowry, yes?’)

In a recent entry to his blog, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic addresses his recovery (it’s going well) and the possibility of a fight with Alistair Overeem in Dream (he’s all for it). But what’s more interesting is that Cro Cop seems well-aware that most MMA fans believe his best days are behind him and, dammit, he’s motivated by it:

I see many people speaking about me as a washed-up fighter but this is just another boost to my motivation. I’m working hard to get back on track and meeting and defeating strong competitors in the ring is all that I think of nowdays.

Man, of all the once-heralded, now-mostly-forgotten fighters from Pride, the collapse of Cro Cop has to be the most disappointing. If it takes us saying that to get him to become a serious fighter again (and no, scheduling and then pulling out of grappling matches against members of the Gracie family doesn’t count), then it’s worth it. Even if Cro Cop gets mad and plays crazy pranks involving assault rifles on us:

out of control- July 29, 2008 at 1:21 am
he will come back. kevin randleman destroyed him and he came back to choke the shit of out of him. maybe cro cop wont be a champ again, but he will fight and fight well. hes kicked the shit out of most of the worlds best fighters. sure, he lost a dec to fedor, but he also broke the mans nose and made his face look like someone took a hammer to it. he broke saks face., barnetts face..etc the list goes on....i dunno. maybe he should have never left K-1...

Lol at caption :)

I think it's been a downhill ride for CroCop after his loss to Fedor. And even winning last Pride tournament was a temporary thing.

CroCop is awesome and he will be back. He could be as good against ground fighters as Chuck, but you have to reallize that the HWs can give up about 50 pounds or more where as LHWs tend to be about the same. It is much easier to sprawl against someone your own size instead of someone a lot heavier than you. He was pre-roids in K1 and he should cut to 205.

You all forget, CroCop went 3 long rounds with Fedor, and lost on decision, not in 36 seconds. However, it is common knowledge that CroCop has no ground game. He is a stand up fighter, and has no way of standing back up once he is down.

I was the happiest man alive when he basically cracked Bob "The Beast" Sapp's eye socket in K-1 fighting. CroCop hits extremely hard!

When he won Pride a few years ago, and beat Josh Barnett's face in, that was when he should have retired, he was at his peak then.....

Kim & Kimbo now thats a 1 - 2 punch for ya!!

So if we want Crocop to win we should NOT be his fan?

I'm confused...
Kim Couture is a cunt- July 28, 2008 at 2:16 am
Kimbo's Lice comes up huge again. I guess I'm wrong, CroCop didnt get smashed twice, didn't get embarrassed and didn't run back to Japan to smash a can out to make himself feel better.

Mirko isn't the man he used to be. His head swelled and he lost the fighter spirit. HE SAID SO HIMSELF BOB. You fuckin idiot bonesmoker. Fuck off and leave this site you clown. This isnt Fagdog, this is where fighters and longtime fans come to talk the fight game the real way, by not having to sugar coat everything so you won't get teh ban.
the mocker- July 28, 2008 at 2:02 am
im sure when crocop has had his fill of gay anal sex with his boy friend he will be back better than ever.
cro cop is god- July 28, 2008 at 1:51 am
cro cop has fought the toughest guys out there and kicked the crap outta them, he didn't do well in a cage big deal hes still god
toolverine- July 28, 2008 at 1:17 am
When Cro Cop retires, they need to give him his own pranks show. That would be awesome.
Kimbo Lice- July 28, 2008 at 12:33 am
Hey Bob until you get your twat waffle on a contract you need to shut the fuck up and get out of your fat aunties basement, and for fucks sake take your stupid Tapout gloves off beacuse you are not a fighter you douche.
fucken internet TUFF GUYS, I hope Dana White and Gary Shaw go to your houses and rape your Lil Yorkshire terriors Ass hats.

What I don't get is how somebody can lose TWICE and all of their past accomplishments are just forgotten. Crocop is not a bitch. It was not that long ago that he was destroying everybody in his division. Nobody can win all of the time. People lose, so what? he is still pretty young and has plenty of time to start kicking the crap out of people again.

Look at Randy Couture he lost to Chuck Liddel twice and retired, then came back to kick ass in the heavyweight division. I think that we are so used to seeing guys like Wanderlei Silva and Crocop win. So it is really strange to see them lose. Wanderlei was Pride Middleweight champ for so long that I forgot who had the belt before him, but he was destined to lose to somebody. You can't win all of the time especially in MMA. So many factors are involved that it is almost impossible to go undefeated for any long period of time. I haven't lost faith in Crocop the man is still a murderer, now he is a murderer that feels like he has to prove himself....people should be afraid.

Cro-cop got Gonzaga'd to the noggin big time. He must redeem himself!!!! Until then he and his massive left quadricept are of no use to anyone.
bob- July 27, 2008 at 11:04 pm
kim, until you put on a pair of gloves and get in the ring yourself, shut the fuck up.
Darkside- July 27, 2008 at 10:42 pm
As much as I hate to say it, kim is right.
Kim Couture is a cunt- July 27, 2008 at 9:40 pm
He got two beatings and then ran back to Japan, what the hell does he expect us to say? He is a coward. And until he finishes his contract in the UFC that is the only way you can explain him, sorry.
Cory- July 27, 2008 at 9:27 pm
FUCK YEAH! i hope hes for sure, it killed me to watch him lose in the ufc lol... i hope he comes back and wrecks peoples worlds again. he should get out of the cage where hes obviously uncomfortable and get back into the ring ( affliction ? ? ? ) like in pride when he used to dominate.
