Your best chance is to wait it out and hope CroCop comes back to the U.S. If you sent those out to him, expect them to never return, unless you happen to have a Croatian contact to help you.

I would try contacting Pay Barry for Cro Cop maybe he can help you out since they do a lot of training together.

For what it's worth, I don't think there is anything more insulting than asking one athlete to get another athlete's autograph for you. Just my opinion...

Thats why he should ask Barry how to get a hold of Cro Cop,not ask Pat to get it signed for him.

sad to hear of your experience ritchie...
haven't met crocop so cannot comment on him..

Out of all the mma, biggest prick I met had to have been babalu.. it was at an auto meet n greet and it felt like he was just there taking up space.. sure he signed autos and took pics, but thats about it.. no personality I saw.. unless he was having a bad day idk..

biggest prick I met in sports would have to be reggie jackson..

I was at an autograph/signing cardshow and he was totally rude.. I am an adult and can take the abuse/rudeness, but when you are,rude to kids is where I lose respect..

kid was in line wanting his auto and he ripped card from kids hand and said "i aint got all day kid" then scribbled a poor excuse for his auto on it.. then proceeded to say "theres your f'n autograph kid, I bet you will put it up on ebay"

After that, I lost respect for Mr. October Phone Post

Thanks for the info guys. I'm done trying to "complete" posters myself. It's too much of a pain in the ass going to autograph events

Some of you guys were asking about my UFC 43 and Real Deal extra posters. I'll be selling them soon as well as some others that I have doubles of that are "incomplete."

Times have changed from when I first started collecting. Before TUF 1 and the UFC going bigtime, most the big name fighters were cool and happy to sign for fans.

I remember Randy's premier of his movie "Fighter," and only about 10 people showed up. Randy was standing alone at the autograph table afterward with nobody in line with people just walking by without a clue. He was so genuinely happy to shake your hand and sign an autograph back then. The last time I got Randy's sig was Ryan Bennet's charity golf event and Randy refused to sign my 43 without personalizing it. So much for completing my 43 which alrady has chuck, kimo, and vitor sigs.

At a charity event where Rampage was attending before the UFC went bigtime, Rampage did not show up - so I asked Savant where he was. Savant called Rampage and told him there was a fan with a pic for him to sign and Rampage could not believe it and drove to the event just because of Savant's phone call. After Rampage became a UFC superstar, he had an attitude like he'd just as soon beat my ass down as sign an autograph.

I sat right next to GSP at the adcc 2005 and he was cool and down to earth. At the Dec 2011 Affliction event, he was fucking up people's merchandise and had a aura of arrogance about him.

I really can't blame the fighters for hating on mma fans these days though. Most newby mma fans are wwe loving retards that have no appreciation of ground technique and just want to see 2 guys beat each other bloody.

Yes I have no respect for fans that want to get their collectibles signed either...it's so morally repugnant and such borderline criminal behavior - how could anyone respect that...

I have no respect for them just like I have no respect for fans that collect belts that they did not earn...fans that collect rickson/fedor autographs...those that have stores and provide what collector seek...fans/collectors that go to the shows/expos/events/etc...I gotz no respect...they all suck!!!

LOL, at mr. high and mighty. Why would anybody want a belt they didn't win themselves? Do you go around to garage sales buying up old trophies too? LULZ

I live in Las Vegas, and I used to go to all the Weigh-in's to meet fighters and get my Autographs. Ufc 33 was my first Ufc I attended, Fighters and thier camps were more than happy to stop and take pictures and sign autographa, there must of been like 150 people or less at the Ufc 33 Weigh-in during that time. Fast forward to current days, and Stich the cutman and Bruce Buffer have lines at the Expos. I feel your pain Bjjdna.

Yep griffey is a dick... Have seen him many times at his sons football games when he was at Dr Phillips here in orlando. He acted like it was killing him when someone would talk to him.

Yea Jamie Varner was cool when I met him too...having fun and cracking jokes

I've been collecting for over 10 years now and most the fighters I've met have been really really cool to mma fans

I've only had a few bad experiences.
