I'd like him to come to the UFC and clean house. but until then stay put.
CroboCop has done this dance before; I think he will stay in Pride. He would get more U.S. exposure in the UFC, so being from the U.S. I would like to see Cro Cop in the UFC. Cro Cop in the octagon cage, now that thought pumps me up. However, he has already said that he is fighting on NYE and he just wants a little more money from Pride. He also wants this fight w/ Fedor soon, and Pride will work this out with him. They have done too much for him in the past. He only comes to the UFC if he believes the rumors that Pride is crumbling, which I doubt.

Not that I understand it much, but how can you say you dont believe Pride is crumbling when theres News that Pride is talking to the WWE and UFC (to name a few) about buying it?

As for people saying Mirko should stay in Pride, stop nuthugging... Hes not gonna stick around and sign a brand new contract to FINISH what he started in Pride, fighting Fedor... Hed be dumb to sign a long term deal with Pride with the crap going on there right now.

If he gets more money from the UFC you KNOW hes gonna go there. And Dana (Unless hes as retarded as everyone thinks he is) will jump all over this one and shock the world!

Can you imagine the dollar signs in front of his eyes when he envisions CroCop in the HW division? OMG man lol

He said once that he's tired of pride. Right before the open gp. He has a title shot in pride so if he went to the ufc that would be a kick in the nuts. He said in the interview he was tired of fighting in japan. Not the crowd but the flight and all that is tireing. I don't know if the u.s.a is better for this type of problem but who knows.
