Cro Cop out of Pride Finals

Quote:
Cro Cop is angry.But not with Wanderlei Silva but with DSE.DSE has refused to pay Mirko what he wants so he won't participate in the GP."We couldn't make a deal so on monday i'm leaving to Pula on well deserved vacation.I don't care how others solve this problems,but i won't give up my principles, and they say i'm to exspensive to them.I just want to be paid for the risk I take.
I'm very sorry for my fans,but also for all MMA fans who expected a great show."
Unofficialy we found out that DSE refused Mirko's request that if he gets to the finals he gets paid for the second fight.If Mirko defeats Silva in semis and fights in the finals (Nog/Barnet) it's logical that he requested to get paid for that fight including the prize money if he wins the GP.
If Mirko doesn't travel to Tokio he probably won't fight in Pride anymore, but he has a great offer from a new american organization (WFA).
Sucks.
Hopefully we'll see Tim Sylvia get sent over now.

He's not officially out yet. It may still be speculation, and Pride hasn't officially yet themselves said they wouldn't fulfill what CC wants. But then if it's true it does suck. I think Pride is going to be in big trouble the next few years unless they can get themselves back on TV, which is highly unlikely. Time for K1 to start stealing all the talent and establish themself as the next Pride.

Wow! If he ends up not fighting, does the guy he beat last take his place?

No. The opponent will just be someone Pride thinks will be a good fill-in.

And now the news is officially on Sherdog, though again CC is not officially out yet.

Actually they had a uhhh...what the hell is it called? Wasn't there a fight on Total Elimination Absolute that was to determine who would fight if someone dropped out? Roman Zentsov and Gilbert Yvel and Roman won, so maybe he will take CroCop's place if CroCop should decide to drop out? Maybe wrong but I think I'm right.

Mirko complaining & possibly quitting Pride

leaving PRIDE to go to the World fighting Alliance along w/ Bas and Quinton Jackson.
here is the article: it is from sherdog.com, do you think Mirko is being a big baby or do think he has a valid point? you dont hear Barnett, Silva, or Nogueira complaining right??? ALSO, what do you think about him possibly going to WFA? good or bad???

dispute over money has apparently caused heavyweight Mirko Filipovic (Pictures) to remove himself from September 10's PRIDE Open-Weight Grand Prix semifinal versus Wanderlei Silva (Pictures) and thus the highly anticipated Final Four, Croatian newspaper Vecernji list reported Saturday.

Filipovic's main point of contention appears to be the $150,000 purse that goes to the victor of the tournament which the Croat said is insufficient considering he will have to win two bouts in one night to become Grand Prix champion.

The explosive striker, best known for a missile-like left high kick, said that he will close down training camp on Monday and leave for vacation.

When asked for reaction, a representative for Dream Stage Entertainment, the parent company of the PRIDE Fighting Championship, told Sherdog.com that they are in contact with the Croatian star. However DSE declined to offer any comment beyond that.

Vecernji list also reported that "Cro Cop" has fielded a substantial offer from the World Fighting Alliance, an American promotion that held a pay-per-view card on July 22 in Los Angeles.

I'm freakin pissed. I was looking forward for Crocop to fight Silva in a rematch and someone win this time and then a Nogueira and Crocop rematch in the finals. And also Crocop fighting Fedor in a rematch. This blows. Now its obvious that Nogueira will win. Is Crocop leaving PRIDE for good? I heard K-1 offers a lot of money/a fight.

I hope he goes to the UFC, i love watching him, Jackson and Bas fight.

i agree though, seeing how for 1 fight even loosing main events are getting about 140k and around 300 almost for winning fighting 2 fights would suck for just a chance at that.

I don't blame Cro Cop, he deserves a better deal then that at the level he's at.

But at the same time i dont think the WFA will get him more then that either.
