Cro Cop: I have no hunger, desire, or ambition


"I feel like somebody stole something from me. I am disappointed by the result, but congratulations to Schaub and thanks to my fans for their support.

"It's clear that in this sport without hunger, desire, and ambition to win there is no success, and its also clear that there is no more left of those in me.

"He surprised me with that strike, everything was same like against Frank Mir. It seemed to me like I was better. What am I saying? If I was better, I would have won!"

Nothing but respect for this dude, and gratitude for some killer bouts and footage! He's overpaid his dues for sure... He can do what the fuck he wants at this point but surely he's stuck his name on some gym and is kicking back?

yea for sure guys........ but i really think that mirko has one fight left in him.... i thought mirko was doing pretty well and just got caught.... i think that if cro cop does fight 1 more time it would have to be against nogueira cause thats the fight mirko stated in the past he wants again.... and with that said maybe he would be more motivated for that fight and come in and get that 1 last left kick ko

o think it's the the UFC rules that affected most of these pride greats than anything else. Mirko and Silva, Rampage etc. are fighters. In pride you had to fight to win they sought to take off their opponents head. In the UFC you gotta be more wary of the wrestlers because they have an advantage. Also please switch to a ring
