CroCop at MW

If Mirko can't beat Fedor when they fight the second time, I think he should drop to MW. From what I hear, Chuck walks around heavier than Mirko and they fight in different weight categories (he can probably cut at his current weight to make 203). Since Shogun is going to HW to not face Wand for the title, I think Mirko should go down to face him and settle it once and for all, so there is no excuses that Wand was too big or whatever....In the same regard, we'd be able to see a Shogun-Mirko title fight. That would be sick.

I think Mirko/Shogun would be a great fight. I'd love to see it. If I could make any dream matchup this would be one of my top choices.

ive never heard of a fighter dropping 1 weight division because he cant beat the champ, the one no1 has ever defeated.. If he was to do that, i, and probably of a lot of other ppl, would simply never give him respect as a MW champ.

Also, there would be no challenge for mirko... mirko doesnt feel challenged by silva at all, he crushed him easy, and besides silva, shogun and liddell arent more of a challenge either.. he has a better reach, better striking, and probably more powerful strikes.. id like to see those big flurrys to even touch his head..

U dont see nogueira crying over 3 losses to fedor, hes just going to keep trying..before the barnett fight, he was undefeated against any1 but fedor... and mirko has lost a few fights, so its not like fedor is his only goal..

Mirko would do very well at Middleweight. I couldn't see him losing. He could be the best Middleweight of all time! Oh, goodie..

I have a hunch that if Mirko can't beat Fedor, he will retire.
I know he's contemplated it in the past and even during the OWGP(If he didn't win, he said he would retire).
But I have a feeling that if he can't beat Fedor, he won't see the reason for fighitng in MMA any further.
He's aging and hes already got a great side job as a Croatian parliament.

But I do hope he atleast puts up a great fight to the point where he might have another few fights in him.

He is not old man, he's only 32 years old...which makes him younger than a lot of people that think they are still in their prime. Really though, what is "old" in MMA nowadays?
