People simply have the confidence against him now. He has that straight left, and that brutal high kick... but what is his plan when that doesn't work? He doesn't seem to have one. He gets completely flustered, and timid.

He's not taking UFC fighting seriously...he doesn't even train in a cage. That sounds like a guy who's already got one foot out of the sport to me.

Crocop looked like he was comatose in this fight.

Kongo is big and awkward with long arms and legs, and he's strong and hard to control, which I think neutralized crocop a lot, but who can expect to win a fight if they do practically nothing at all, like crocop did tonight? He looked absolutely terrible.

That excuse doesn't work anymore. He trains in a cage now, and trained hard as hell for this fight.

Henderson lost too after he ran out of stanima and gave away the late rounds, it sounds. That is just ****ing great.
Both guys were tired by the third due to the pace. Henderson won the first; the third was dead even. Jackson won 2, 4, and 5 clearly. He outcontrolled, outmaneuvered, overpowered and just plain outfought Dan.

People are not over that quickly. I swear there are a bunch of fairweather fans now. Give him some time before you count him out. Kongo was a tough matchup for Cro Cop and Cro Cop didn't use octagon intelligence and take him to the ground much. That was his major fault, a fault from which he can recover quite soon.

And yeah, he is over, he's said he was thinking about retiring for a while now, in fact he said he would retire in 06 if he didn't win the OWGP. After two straight losses to the level he's been facing, he will surely retire after his next fight, as his contract will have been up. He's not even close to what he used to be, that's just how it is.
Simple. Because Kongo is a pure striker who can't fight on his back. That's where Cro Cop's most damage was done but the bell sounded to end the round before he could really inflict anything serious. Cro Cop is facing a striker who is taller with more reach and no ground game and you wanna know why he should take it to the mat? It is apparent that you did not see the fight. Watch it before you pose dumb questions.
