Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

You’re Going to Have to Do Better Than That If You Want to Surprise These Kids, Cro Cop

(Props: MMA Scraps)

Now that Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic is on the verge of making his possibly glorious, possibly disastrous return to the cage against Ben Rothwell at UFC 110 this weekend, we might as well take a look at the man’s softer side. Granted, he’s a bad-ass Croatian fighter, so his soft side isn’t even really all that soft.  It’s more of a malleable metal than a bowl of jello, really, but that’s not the point.  The point is, if there’s one thing Cro Cop respects it’s kids who kick other kids in the head.

I don’t know about you, but the build-up to the Cro Cop reveal in this video had me expecting a little more of a reaction out of the kids. The cameras in their living room might have tipped them off that something was afoot, but even when the guy who’s supposed to be their idol walks in the door they barely crack a smile. It’s not until he starts pulling out the free gear that they even look like they’re glad he came.

Of course, some of that may have to do with the advice he gives them. Be good to your mother, stay away from drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol, try and do a little better in school – it’s basically the same tired rap that Mr. T used to peddle when I was a kid, only Cro Cop doesn’t even go to the trouble to present the message through the majesty of song…

This advice coming from the guy who high kicks his mom when she skips out on the milk in his cereal.

Awesome throwback to Mr.T that video was perhaps the origin of Epic Fail.

The jump cuts in that video felt like a roundhouse upside my head. Now I'm nauseated and closing my browser.

God..I wish crocop would just go away already. He's too small to be a HW, too old to cut down to 205 and just looks like a fish out of water in the UFC. Just retire already dude, your Croatian sheep will worship you regardless (vain pride is their specialty).

Surprise was quickly replaced with relief when it was apparent that Mirko had not rolled a hand grenade into the apartment before making his entry.

Seriously, it's Croatia.

Deleted Scene: Dranor puts on the UFC gloves and uppercuts the fishing daydreams out of Mirko's head.

Those Croatians are way too emotional. They need to turn it down a notch before the rest of the world stops believing that Croatia is a joyless place where every day is as gloomy and overcast as the last.

Fuck those little ungrateful little assholes. Cro Cop should have handed out a few roundhouse kicks and called it a day.

I pity the fool who looks surprised when Cro Cop walks through the door!

Hell yea MR.T

Awesome! Mr T, with backup vocals provided by Laverne, Shirley and Chaka Khan? How is it that I've never seen this before? A classic illustration of why celebs should leave the music to the musicians. Instantly ranks right up there with The Superbowl Shuffle, Roseanne's rendition of the US national anthem and anything put out by W.Shatner or D.Hasselhof.

@ El Guapo

I was thinking the exact same thing about the older one.

The entrance music they played for him to walk into their apartment freaked those kids out. They could only think that left leg was coming to put them in the cemetery.

Great I finally got the "I'm a Banana" song out of my head and now I'll be humming "Treat your mother right"... Not really an upgrade.
El Guapo- February 17, 2010 at 3:52 pm
Mirko's too late. Those kids look like they've been stoned for a while now...
Kittarl- February 17, 2010 at 3:50 pm
That is funny as fuck, freeloada kids.

I went to babelfish and translated predispozicije. It's croatian for "lazy translator"
