I wasn't really shocked about this, I think Kongo is a great striker but didn't know he was better than cro cop. Kongo had a great game plan, felt cro cop out in the first round and then came out in the 2nd and 3rd round and went to work. Cro cop couldn't land very many strikes and couldn't defend very well. Being a Cro Cop fan I felt bad for the guy, but pure and simple he got beat hands down.

cro cop had me reasonably impressed in the first round...looked like Kongo was backing away...

then in the 2nd and 3rd...wow. total lack of heart IMO. cro cop I don't think threw more than 2 left hands for the last 10 minutes of the fight. To me, his best chance was to go for the head w/ the punches, not kicks to head right away.

I'd say this loss unquestionably takes him out of the top 3 probably in 7th or 8th in the world, but I think he's pretty close to being done.

Cro Cop really needed to come out and make a statement. Unfortunately, he made the wrong statement. I am questioning if Cro Cop even wants to fight anymore. He looked horrible. He has dropped significantly on the rankings list in my opinion. I would almost guarantee that Dana White and Mirko are going to meet to possibly renegotiate his contract. Perhaps writing him a check and releasing him because he still has three fights left on his contract at $350,000. Not sure about you guys, but at this point, I have no interest in seeing him fight in the UFC again.

the "new" cro-cop doesn't have the passion and love for the sport the old one used to. He doesn't have the ice cold stare, and he didn't even look as physically fit as before. Cro-cop needs to fix up quickly, because he's seriously not delivering.

I'm very dissapointed to say this but based on his last three fights strictly he's probably about 8. If he's even top 10.
Still, it doesn't erase what he's done in history. He's a great fighter, maybe he'll come back strong =/.

Yupp, he is no longer top ten PERIOD!
