I agree. I dont think he had any plans on going back to the UFC either. I think its pretty much a choice between being a superstar in Japan and being a mediocre HW in the UFC. Its not much of a choice really.

Weird, Mirko said that his physique was because of all the training he was doing before the fight. Is something lost in translation there?
Well if he is trying to gain weight and get bigger and stronger, hes gonna gain some fat aswell.

don't think he wants to be in UFC-- think he's a great fighter that just is not used to the US, UFC crowd... He just fought great in DREAM and is planning on going back into the ring with Fedor.

I think he's a true fighter that had a bad case of nerves in UFC...
Dana should nt have let him go!
