If Cro Cop really wants to be back in UFC, why is he fighting in a boxing ring?
 
I mean, what did his fight show us that we didn't already know? Fine, he can knock out a guy with a .500 record. Sure, I suppose it's good for his confidence, but what does it do to make him a better UFC fighter?

We all knew Mirko was gonna fight cans in Japan. Fine. But he says he wants to come back to the cage, and here he is in a boxing ring. How's that going to help him? He should have done KOTC or HCF or something.

Cro Cop's awesome, but I get the feeling he's going to walk through a bunch of low-level Japanese fighters, come back to UFC again, and give us more of what he did before.

I just don't want to see him go out like that, y'know?

he said he wants a stronger better opponent for the next fight.
ill take his word.

Yeah, I have the same concern to! There are times I really question Mirko's logic. Like going into the UFC and NOT training in a Cage. He didn't think that would be important. Well, hopefully after Dream he's does go to another Cagefighting Org before returning to the UFC.

Personally, I don't think that Crocop has any real plans on returning to the UFC. It's not the competition, just that the cage is not where Crocop fights best. In the ring he is able to cut off his opponents and trap them in a corner before KO'ing them, while in the UFC they were able to just circle around and they wouldn't get caught. Crocop knows this.

I could see him fighting someone like Mighty Moe or Kharitonov in his next fight, these aren't cans.

The first one was because nobody else would take the fight like he said, hopefully Kharitonov will.

Hes fighting in a ring ecause they use rings in the organisation where he is popular. Crocop is huge in Japan. I hope the guyis training in a cage, with elbows, and planning a return. I hope.

I think Sergei would beat Mirko.

Pale faced Sergei vs. pudgy Cro Cop would rock. Make it happen!

Yeah, that sounds like all kinds of fun. :thumbsup:

Weird, Mirko said that his physique was because of all the training he was doing before the fight. Is something lost in translation there?
