Lightbulb How Much Does This Effect Cro Cop Mentally?

I honestly think with another loss in the Octagon for Mirko Cro Cop, tonight at UFC 75, could possibly spell disaster for Mirko Cro Cop. The only reason I say this is because Mirko Cro Cop had such great success in the ring, I think his record was 23-3 or something like that before he made his transition to the Octagon, and with 2 back to back losses in the Octagon I think Mirko Cro Cop might start thinking that he just cant win in the Octagon. And when an athlete's mind starts to wander into that dangerous subject and starts to make you think that you can no longer win that battle, you will never win that battle. Honestly I hope that Mirko Cro Cop never once has this come across his mind, because if it does, I think it could spell disaster for his UFC/MMA Career.

Your thoughts?

He will never hold the UFC belt, and will probably have 1 more fight before the UFC lets him go.

I'm not sure where he can go. I'd like to get all of the details of the fight tho, cuz Kongo could have broken some ribs of Cro Cop, causing the lack of punching and aggression...seriously...he threw like ZERO punches in the 2nd and 3rd round.

Cro Cop has been talking about leaving Parliment and going back to their special terrorism force for a while. I bet he took this contract to retire on and probably could care less, other than pride, about his fights.

If he wants to continue fighting another organization would easily pay top buck for CroCop. But I don't know whether or not he plans to retire. :/

I read in an artice recently that he only trains for a couple hours a day. I think he's more involved with other parts of his life, and honestly it just seems like he's using the UFC as a big pay day and not being serious about it at all.

Well if he got picked up by another org other than a few names who might give him a good challenge there's a good chance that he would end up champ. Maybe that would stick the fire behind him. If he retires I'm sure he'll miss MMA, but sounds like he's got more than enough stuff going on in his life to keep him busy and content.

actually its a known fact that he trains for about 12-16 hours a day, and has bought a freakin cage and put it in his basement. he also PAYED WITH HIS OWN POCKET to have the guys that beat kongo to come and work with him. id say he was taking this pretty seriously, wouldnt you?
