I would much rather he remains a coach. I'm also sure he speaks at least Croatian, if not Japanese and he'd be a hell of a cool commentator. He needs to train up and coming dudes. I don't want to see him getting spanked around the octagon

I have no problem with CroCop continuing to fight. The fights in the UFC havent been that bad. He gave JDS the toughest fight. He had Nelson seriously hurt. The fight with Frank Mir was horrible for both guys. He certainly cant compete in the UFC but he could still have some fun in some lower level organizations with fun style type fights. Id watch him fight.

with K-1 failing to pay their fighters (and reluctance to pay any in advance) I guess MMA would be his only way to make money. But for the love of god Mirko, stick to the Kickboxing for crying out loud!

It's true then again Ray has been out of the game for awhile. Still enjoyed that bout though, but for sure his mentality in kickboxing and inside a RING is completely different. He seems to shut down inside the Octagon...definitely doesn't let his hands go or utilizes his combinations the way he can. He unleashed once against Roy and had em against the fence and that was it. It was so anti-climatic.

Overall I would like to see Crocop with a two fight contract. He gets to choose. The fans don't want to see him hurt, but as Roy said he can still bang.

Some interesting matchups.

Bigfoot - interesting to see if he can win as his old adversary (Fedor) was unable to. This could also end very badly for CC.
Hunt - rematch
Big Nog - rematch. I think Crocop should be able to win now.
Struve - very winnable match for CC
Kongo - rematch. Shave a couple of years off and CC would have kicked him into oblivion.

Even though they're friends a bout with Werdum would propel him right back into the mix.

At this stage of his career he shouldn't fight the younger kats with power; Travis Browne or even Lavar Johnson.

Marquee match ups is the way to go for the purists and casual fans alike to enjoy. Heck I'm certain Randy would come out of retirement for a special event fight against Mirco Crocop.

I hope he comes back so I can make some easy money/creds. I learned a while back that as long as you bet against Cro Cop you will come out on top because he only wins when lightning strikes or he is fighting a can.

Sucks when you want to compete at the highest level but just can't anymore.

I don't want to see this at all. Fight after fight I would watch him with one eye closed hoping he didn't get flash KO'd again and the other eye hoping he would show us that signature LHK. His chin is shot and he doesn't do well if there is any possibility of being taken down. I don't mind seeing fights like the one that he had with Sefo but would be nervous to see him fight someone of a high skill level at this point in his career.

I dont actually know how bad his chin is though. The KO's from Gonzaga and Mir would have KO'd anyone. JDS didn't put him out. The Nelson fight though.....CroCop just seemed to fall over and give up.

You bastard...lolz...so true though. Lost everytime I bet on him...that's when I realize you can't bet on emotions.
