I mean I don't think there is to much you can read into this fight besides the fact he kicked the crap out of a guy who shouldn't have been fighting him. This fight doesn't prove Mirko is back but it doesn't mean his career is dead either.
He just stalked, he didn't look agile and active. He hardly looked compelled to even compete because he knew he was being fed a win. It must be hard pill to swallow, being a guy that can whomp someone like Josh Barnett repeatedly, then have a problem winning fights, leading to fights with nobodies. He must feel demoted.

It was an obvious win like you said, but I really thought he still looked like the Cro Cop that fought Eddie Sanchez. Stalking and tentative.

I mean he was fighting a complete can. I think if he looks like that against a solid opponent he should've trained for then I would agree with you but this guy wasn't any good.

No he didn't look agile and active but he didn't need to I find it hard to base anything off a fight like this.

What was up with the stupid shorts? He looked pretty chubby as well, definitly not the lean Mirko we used to know back in 04-05. He also looks pretty sluggish and flat footed.

I also didn't gain anything from that fight, and as much as I love Mirko, this was really low, the dude needs to pick it up and get his standards and mind right. If he fights another nobody, thats it for me.

Hopefully DREAM isn't stupid and realizes Mirko can be a force again and actually gives him name opponants. But other than Mirko and a bunch of nobodies, who does DREAM have in their HW roster????

I think Cro Cop looked alright, but it's kind of hard to gauge because of the opposition and length of the fight...
He looked to me like a bear that had just awoken from hibernation and was testing the water before jumping in...
Also, Cro Cop is going to be 34 this year and his speed is naturally on the decline. I don't think we'll being seeing the same fighter that we saw just a few years ago, so hopefully it's one that is even a smarter fighter than ever before...

I was just glad to see Crocop beat someone up.

I don't get the hatefor the shorts.

Yeah, I can agree with that. I just hope he turns it up for some real competition next time.

I didn't think he looked bad at all, I liked his knees and also liked the leg kick from the clinch... that was cool. He looked bigger and idk if that's the best idea for him, I think he should worry about being quick and explosive not bigger and stronger.

I don't think he necessarily looked bad, I just think he's going about the winning thing the wrong way. It's just like you said, he shouldn't be concerned with bulking up, that's not what lost him his UFC fights. He needs to desperately find his feet again, what made him so dangerous before was how explosive he was. He wasn't nearly as flatfooted before, and against real competition he's going to get bullied unless he starts moving again.

The kick inside the clinch was cool too, definitely didn't expect that and the knee.
