Mirko Cro Cop Already Angling for a Shot at Brock Lesnar


(Look, he’s working his way up to doing it with a 500-pound man, okay? Baby steps.)

We can now count Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic as a member of the "Brock Haters Club" that already includes Mike Swick, Logan Stanton, and Stephen Colbert. As the UFC heavyweight (currently, but don’t jinx it) said during a recent interview:

"I must point out that his victory is a defeat for the sport as such. Don’t get me wrong, Lesnar is a fearsome and very dangerous opponent, but I am old school, I prefer skill and technique. This win was a defeat of martial skills. Much of what he achieved in the fight is a result of pure power… Of course, Lesnar has quality sparring partners, is an experienced wrestler and a man who learns very quickly. But he is yet to have a real struggle. He does not have many fights in his career and I would love to see how he would react to two or three good low kicks."



Filipovic is just saying, for the sake of argument, that it would be interesting to see how Brock reacts to a few good leg kicks, hypothetically, from someone who really knows how to deliver them, and we’re just talking here, but why couldn’t that person be a Croatian fighter and part-time actor? Personally, I’m not a fan of this particular line of criticism. If you can’t overcome size and power with skill and technique, then your skill and technique is lacking — and to suggest that wrestling doesn’t fall under the umbrella of "martial skills," and that Brock isn’t highly proficient in his particular martial art, means that your view of MMA is probably a bit too narrow. But if Cro Cop can beat up Junior Dos Santos at UFC 103, he may get a chance to tangle with Lesnar. So what would it be: Brock by smothering, or Mirko by head kick KO?

Brock Lesnar F5's CroCop for the win
agentsmith- July 22, 2009 at 6:23 am
Mirko ain't exactly a well-rounded "martial artist" either... he's about as much a one-trick pony as Brock is. Mirko's trick is kickboxing, and Brock's is wrestling. The difference is, Brock has only been doing this for a couple years and is bound to evolve, while Mirko is all he's ever going to be.

I bet Mirko looks down on Brock for being a former pro wrestler, yet he's the one with a resume padded with cans who're wearing masks and/or 7-ft tall. That's what you call ironic.

I can't believe I'm defending Cock Chestner.

This is how Lesnar/Filipovic would go:

-leg kick by Cro Cop
-leg kick attempt by Cro Cop
-take down by Lesnar
-TKO via homicide

he has a better chance than anyone other than cain or carwin, you see the people lesnar gets? all has beens. even couture he has no future in HW divison.

all i can say is, just like kim couture, if he stuffs one take down brock is hurt. as for brushing off a leg kick from crocop? that like brushing off a snap from a broken crane cable. crocop cripples people with single kicks to the body. brock couldnt handle mir on the feet, crocop would mutilate brocks quad. it was hard for crocop to defend on from his back because he has never had to deal with elbows...i honestly dont think brock has anything for him that anyone else hasnt already brought.

as for the machida comment, thats some dumb shit. machida has always fought that way and BJ beat him normal scoring in thier fight..good thing he wasnt the fav in that fight or he would have actually won.

machidas lateral movement looks more spectacular when idiots run at him like zombies. hes not gonna manhandle a HW, and hes not gonna outstrike a k1 beast

i thought all that recent 'one fight deal' and the 'dream contract' was already exposed as spin on DW's part to make it look like 1 fight contracts will never happen again??
JPfighter- July 21, 2009 at 10:08 pm
Now that I think about it, I would love to see the UFC feed Cro Cunt to Lesnar. It would certainly accomplish a number of things. Most notably, it would build further credibility for Lesnar as the champion. Also, it would give a nice payback to Cro Cunt for all his recent bullshit. With Mirko's recent history, Lesnar would surely throw him around the ring like a Croatian rag doll.

And if Mirko is so concerned that Lesnar lacks technique, perhaps he can challenge Lesnar to a non-contact kata match. Fucking goof.

Are you fucking kidding? What the fuck is the point of weight classes then.

Aside from a deviated septum and a lingering injuries not to mention the new experience of fighting in the cage all contributed to Mirko's quick first stint in the UFC. A fully MOTIVATED Mirko will be a very scary fight for Brock."

>>> I think Mirko has a deviated vagina but whatever....

"....if Mirko can defend the takedown for a round it would be over. his arsenal of kicks and punches is ridiculous. The thing about MIRKO IS HIS RIGHT STRAIGHT IS devastating AND THAT SETS UP THE LEFT HIGH KICK MISSILE. Mirko by KO if he can keep it up, if not Mirko is mince meat."

>>> What happens if he hits him with his best shots and Brock just shrugs them off? I guess then Mirko is mince meat then, too....

END OF RESPONSE TO THREAD.

Cro Cop has awesome take down defense and legendary striking.
but lesnar is a monster.

cant wait till some one works out the lesnar enigma

id love to see this fight end in a left high kick (from either fighter)."


>>> If Brock ends the fight with a High Kick, then the entire UFC is in big trouble 'cause that would mean that Brock has improved his MMA Skills dramatically and is no longer a one-dimensional(albeit very effective) fighter.

If he goes unbeaten for awhile- I say Steve Porn Stash gets distracted and Dean Martin hits him with a flying knee"

>>> Dean Martin comes back from the Dead and hits Brock with his knee?? I wonder what his pal Jerry Lewis would think? ;)

This Logan woman better watch out what she says about Brock 'cause Sable can and will kick her ass.

You forgot to mention all that sand he had in his vagina, too.

Dmonicideals- July 21, 2009 at 7:47 pm
I am of the opinion that Brock is going to be the 1st person to kill someone in the cage, although it'd be an accident. If this fight ever happens, it has a great chance of happening.

Brock via Suplex neck-breakl.

Uhhh ya, he does have balls. Mirko's reign in PRIDE was one of the most prolific and well documented runs in MMA history. I understand your probably 3 maybe 4 years in to being a fan of MMA just do your homework before you post ludicracy.

Wow, does this guy have some balls. Kongo and Gonzaga both beat the tar out of Cro Cop easily, and neither of those guys are very close to a shot at Lesnar after their recent losses. So yeah... way to call out someone you'll likely never face, puppy-chow.

open weight is bs - gracie took out a sumo wrestler - albeit a sumo wrestler with absolutely no experience whatsoever. I don't think Brock is unbeatable - Slyvia looked bigger than him. I think he's just a really good wrestler with great hip and head control on the ground that leads to those lunch box size hands reigning down death.

Shane Carwin or Cain really might be a good fight- need a solid wrestler to stuff takedown and OK standup - he really looked stunned by just a couple of Mir's punches, amirite? I think when you see his fights takedowns are the it factor- except the Couture factor- that was just meh

If he goes unbeaten for awhile- I say Steve Porn Stash gets distracted and Dean Martin hits him with a flying knee
Savage- July 21, 2009 at 6:19 pm
If sumhow Crocop can keep the fight standing i think he will no doubt out strike Lesnar but we all know lesnar will instantly go for the take down and do the lay on top hammer fist technique, hopefully Crocop can keep it standing.
wesley830- July 21, 2009 at 6:08 pm
As much as I hate the bastard, Brock would smash CC. No doubt.

NEW WEIGHT CLASS????
BULLSHIT!!!!!
why bother with that. He is the only fighter that heavy and skilled. I didnt see anyone screaming new weight class when Bob Sapp was gettin the shit kicked out of him. And as for brock getting "manhandled" for the 20 secs he stood for the fight, isnt Mirs thing his Jits? Hes not known for being a great striker except against sick old men. You people cry over stupid shit that is trivial. Honestly, hes a wrestler what did you expect him to do? Box Mir?
JPfighter- July 21, 2009 at 5:36 pm
Cro Who?
Fight Fan- July 21, 2009 at 4:47 pm
Machida would kill Cro Cop. Silva would kill Cro Cop. Lastly, with any decent odds, I'd take GSP over Cro Cop.

The Truth- July 21, 2009 at 4:33 pm
If Machida gained up weight to fight BL, he would lose his life. He would actually do better with his normal weight and stay elusive as long as possible.

That being said, his only chance would be a 3-acre octagon to avoid the Bear.
TheSlothman- July 21, 2009 at 4:08 pm
Would anyone like to see Rampage fight Kenny Florian? what , thats ridiculous? well, its the same difference in pre fight weight that exists in almost all of Cock Chesters fights.... just sayin.....NEW WEIGHT CLASS NEW WEIGHT CLASS NEW WEIGHT CLASS.... IS MANDATORY.. for the continued growth of the sport.....open weight fights are sooo last century.
mmaflunkie- July 21, 2009 at 3:58 pm
Is Logan refering to Brock being gross or that pinky finger of hers? Either way, she better watch her lip. UFC can replace her in a second.

And honestly, who f'ing cares what Logan Stanton thinks or says regarding MMA. She get's paid to look hot, that's it. Now shut your trap because no one cares to hear you talk. If we did, then the UFC would have Rogan prancing around with a Bud Light round number card and you'd be providing commentary next to Goldberg.

These chicks amaze me... just shut up and look good. Is it really that tough?
