At least he won. No one seems to care though. I'm relieved for the moment.

I hope they give him a formidable opponent and he destroys him. I miss the Mirko of 2004 and 2006.

Oh so when Pat Barry chops someone down, he's the next crocop. But when Crocop chops an actual tree down, no one cares.

I'm glad he won, I hope he makes a return, maybe after one more fight...but anyway, that's how you defeat a giant. Impressive.

Now that I have seen this fight, I think that Cro Cop should retire some time soon. Yes, he won. Yes, we love him. But I am starting to think he won't be able to get back in contention, or back in league with alot of the top HW's anytime soon.

Despite his win over Hong Man Choi, its clear that Crocop hasn't been doing so good of late. Its been a real shame to see him failing (at the least by his standards) in the UFC. Its a long way from his glory days back in Pride, the sort of standard he showed against Fedor in their title bout for example. True he lost but it was a close call, and anyone who goes the distance with Fedor and manages to do some damage of his own if pretty awesome.

Still Crocop's recovering from some injuries, after his surgery he'll not be fighting for six months but hopefully after that he'll come back with the sort of skills he used to show. Who knows though, it may be too late by then. And there's a lot of really good heavyweights around at the moment.
