Seriously....3 close losses to very very very top of the food chain fighters. And 1 fluke.
Mirko beat a lot of amazing wrestlers and BJJ people, and just fighters in general. HOW could Gonzaga win this? Its insane...the skill level gap between Gonzaga and Cro Cop is rediculous...
Mirko by first round KO/TKO, and ill bet anything on this.
How could anyone have ever honestly thought Rogerio, Wandy, Gomi, Misaki, Herring, Babalu, Sylvia, Arona, or GSP would lose. Now not all of those upsets would be the same caliber as Gonzaga beating Mirko but a couple would. My point is its been a crazy year in mma.
