Cro Cop is the man, he may not have had much luck in the UFC but you can never take away his glory from K1 and Pride, good luck Mirko, I will always be a fan.

One of the most exciting fighters from the Golden Age of MMA. One of the coolest moments (then biggest letdowns) was when he came walking out to the Pride theme for his UFC debut.
I'd love to read about his highlights, but too lazy to click the link to the other site.
