[VIDEO] Mirko Cro Cop Scores KO Victory Over Loren Javier Jorge at K-1 Rising

(Who wants to learn how to maker Tater Tots the *fun* way?) 

There are two schools of thought on how a given fighter should end their career in the UFC. The first, and perhaps most honorable method, involves a fighter going out on their shield, fighting until they can fight no more, so to speak. The second involves a fighter talking a ridiculous amount of trash, losing a fight in embarrassing fashion, and throwing a hissy fit backstage that only enforces their bosses decision to fire them. Thankfully, Mirko Cro Cop chose the former method (though he perhaps stuck around a couple fights too long), and after suffering a trio of (T)KO losses to Frank Mir, Brendan Schuab, and Roy Nelson, was ousted from the UFC.

This is not to say that we got any enjoyment out of witnessing the Croatian’s demise, but more so that we were happy to see Cro Cop come to the realization that his career in mixed martial arts had gone as far as it could go. His career in kickboxing, however, has seemingly yet to come to a crashing halt, and in fact maybe on the upswing, as Filipvoic managed to pick up a rather impressive second round knockout victory over Loren Javier Jorge at K-1 Rising earlier today in Madrid, Spain.

Cro Cop looked better than we’ve seen him in quite some time, unleashing a few beautiful, snappy head kicks that were nothing short of nostalgic. But the finishing blows did not come as a result of his well-documented kicks, but rather from a series of uppercuts that dropped Jorge a two occasions, the latter of which he could not recover from. Cro Cop looked quick, efficient, and more than anything else, eager to finish the fight when presented the opportunity. Again, it was a very nostalgic experience for both Cro Cop and those who had the privilege of catching the fight.

Though the finish comes toward the end of the video, my personal favorite moment comes around the 6:43 mark, where, after the referee separates the two, Cro Cop pulls off a dead-on Robert Deniro impression without uttering a word. If there was anyone doubting his acting talents after Ultimate Force, they can promptly suck it.

JDS is a bad man. Cain looked good but I don't see him beating JDS. Will be a better fight this time around than Frank Mir though most likely. HAHA Jamie Varner crashing parties. Can't believe Diego Brando couldn't finish that fight in the first round. Homeboy had a chin/heart on him.

Seemed like the guy was looking for a way out after the second knock down, made sure the ref counted to ten then walked away without so much as a wobble.

I guess some people just know brain damage when they feel it tingling behind their eyes...
