Default Thanks for the memories crocop!

SOOOOOO....WHOOO was right?....huh? Whoooo?

I was!...
check it for yourself

So , ok , I predicted Kongo by KO...it wasn't a KO but he still won.
And do you know why i ****ing knew it in advance?
Because the guy who got owned by Gonzaga (fluke or not is irrelevant)..

was just a poor man's version of the original.
the guy's career is over. he's past his prime.

NO SURPRISES , here..
same thing happened to tyson's career..
only this is in mma...

The likes of Gonzaga and Kongo are nobodies (no offense to their fans)
and they had no problems beating this guy.
He's just a name now...nothing more.

Suddenly fedor's (eventual) fight against Gilbert Yvel looks a bit more legit now doesn't it?...afterall , Yvel Tkoed Kongo in the past , so why not right?

Who the F%ck is Kongo as a kickboxer? Mirko is out kickboxed by this guy in stand up, indeed , he is done.

compared to crocop? he's no one.
but not just in kickboxing...in mma too.

but hey , same goes for gonzaga.

the real problem isn't these guys , it's crocop himself..
the guy's career is dead.

the sad thing is that he's not allowed to retire because he needs to finish his contract.
(or give the money back maybe?)

All my picks correct except outcomes and yeah Cro Cop needs to think where his career going

RAMPAGE is the man - next rematch with Rua or Silva

A muay thai champion, and Mirko is allergic to the clinch. Anyone who knew shit about these two called this a bad match up for Cro Cop since day one, and just hoped that his experience would pay off.

Me too, Jesus christ I aint watching this shit. I am pissed off.

Henderson lost too after he ran out of stanima and gave away the late rounds, it sounds. That is just ****ing great.

I like both fighters in that fight.

But Ive been a fan of CroCop but it seems like hes been giving up or not taking fights seriously.

its not that he's given up. Crocop needs to adapt. His styles and weakness has been figured out. Force him backward and watch out for the left kick or left cross. That is 90% of Ccrocop's weapon.

He's a one dimensional fighter who specialized in fighting wrestlers kind of like Liddell does. It's amazing he was as successfull as he was. I think because of his highlight reel head kicks it made him out to be a little over rated. In 3 rounds against Kongo he only threw a couple kicks and handfull of punches.

K1 is close but not the same as MMA. You don't get pounded in a take down like you do in MMA. In both his last two fight he was hurt while on his back. He's not done. He just needs to re-tool his fighting style.

his best moments were when he had Kongo on the ground, he did squat for 3 rounds on his feet, he just walked around with a dumb look on his face.

He has terrible gamplans really, refused to take the fight to the ground when it was apparant he wasn't going to win on the feet.

Came out looking for one big left hand and never bothered to adapt.

Hate me for it, but I think this at least somewhat diminishes some of the former Pride HW's reputations, Gonzaga and Kongo both looked better against Mirko than Fedor, and Barnett lost 3 times to him, just something to consider.
