Notice after being let go from the UFC he says they paid him well and had nothing bad to say about the organization. Nitwits who cry about evil Dana and talk about the two or three boxers who make big money, should take note.

I used to think Cro cop was gun-shy in the cage because he didn't have the killer mentality anymore. I have realized that is it because he just can't physically do it anymore. His knees and now his arm is fucked up. He is falling apart. I just hope he calls it a day, get healthy, and go fishing.

Yes and No. Master Ishii regained control of K-1 and is partnering with WAKO-Pro to make a new K-1 league.
