This picture says it all, an old Cro Cop with bad knees fails to hurt the weak chinned & hearted Overeem with a clean left high kick.

I don't see good things in store for CC vs a prime Barry. Cro Cop is now MMA's Ken Griffey, both were once one of the best in the world and now one was daydreaming of fishing in Croatia while walking to the cage and the other was sleeping during a game when they needed him to pinch hit.

Prime cc (that went 3 rounds with fedor) was arguably the baddest man on the planet in his prime.

NASTY stand up, amazing sprawl, was some next level cop and was just an out and out eastern european bad ass.

What happened mirko ?

100+ fights through amateur boxing, K-1, & MMA, injuries, age and just becoming burned out IMO.

bad knees or legs

he can't move around well anymore and his kicks have no power, remember how Kongo was mocking him? it would make you think Kongo was some kind of super invincible kickboxer when actually he sucks

Not trying to be a stickler but didn't that match prove that Fedor was the baddest man on the planet?

People just age man. The man is still a legend and my personal favorite. I still maintain he did the best against Junior Dos Santos to this point (the man who will become the reigning and dominant HW champion)

Yeah but at the time he gave Fedor a good run... I don't know what happened other than the fact that he choked... he had Fedor wobbly for a second and went in for the kill and then somehow ended up on his back. Fedor did what he does and took over from there.

I agree, but the key word is 'arguably'.

I mean, the guy was a KILLER in mma and a KILLER out of it !

Was big in parliment (sp ?), was in the anti terrosrist unit i beleive, was 'probably' the deadliest striker on the planet and just oozed bad ass.

Only on the OG can you beat someone convincingly and still be called out for ducking them.

Crocop brokedown when Fedor broke him down. His power slowly drained

1st his headkick couldn't even knockdown Mark Hunt

then it couldn't knock down anyone.

Now he can barely even throw it.

Mirko just kept backing off the whole fight and lost a decision because of that, other than that Fedor didn't do shit to him and Crocop almost KOed him.

No he didn't, Fedor clearly won every round of that fight.

 Been a long time since I watched the Fedor/Mirko fight, but from what I remember, it looked to me like Fedor hit Mirko w/an excellent kick to the body and that really affected Mirko for the rest of the fight.  Could be wrong, though.  Never heard anyone else mention that, so maybe it is my Alzheimer's kicking in.

Respectfully:

Fred

cop knew he couldn't get past fedor, so he was happy when he won the 2006 pride grand prix, and realized that was his pinnacle.

CC always had plodding footwork, moving straight in and out, with little head movement. Didn't matter much back then when he was young, fast and strong. But now that he's older, he's slowed down, gotten a weaker chin and isn't hitting as hard as he used to. So, he's going to get picked apart and KO'd by any decent striker. Plus he's a little small for the current crop of heavy weights.

And trust me, I WISH I WAS WRONG.
