That's enough of the "CroCop wasn't himself" arguments.. we saw exactly what he was the last two times. CroCop has just got dominated twice in a row, both on the ground and on his feet, fair and square. He's a great fighter, but now we find his true worth, definitely not the #2 in the world. Over half his wins have come from japanese cans and B levels like Yoshida and Fujita, and another good chunk against tired out guys in the Pride GP (which I think is an unfair competition to begin with; If some guy gets a can in the first round and another gets an all out half-hour brawl, who do you think has the advantage later that night? Unless you're inhuman like Fedor of course). Mirko needs to shape up if he wants that top HW hype to be believable.
