Man, Mirko was def at his A-game during the OWGP. I dont know if hes ever going to be capable of that again but seeing someone perform as good as he did is inspiring. I hope to God he can recapture his glory

Heres how I see it though. Given his position right now after 2 losses, and the fact that UFC had so many intentions for him, he will be given a very light opponant, hopefuly if he beats him in impressive manner then he will either get contender status or another mediocre fighter to get steam.

If he does good in his next 2 fights I def see a contract extention and a possible title shot. It would be too big of a waste of money not to.

I don't see how he is gonna be deserving of a title shot until he can beat a top 5 HW. So far (excuses be damned...these are professionals) he has racked up a great big zippo. Yeah...he is indeed a world class fighter. But so are the rest of 'em.

I see that belt around the waist of Tim Silvia or perhaps even Kongo shortly after the new year.

I think we'll see the best crocop in his next fight. I think he's really determined now that his career is on the line.

**CRO COP Interview!!** 10-12-2007

"I will change something in training methods and I will go in Amsterdam to train with Hypolite and on sparing with his fighters."

After nose surgery (septum deviation-causing breathing problems) Mirko started to train again.

"There are many peoples which deductes me, but I am motivated to show them they are wrong.

Because of his nose surgery he will not have sparing for 6 weeks. But in this period he will not spare boxing bag.

" I want to enlarge my weight from 100 to 105 kilos. In fights vs Gonzaga&Kongo I saw that this is necessary because against heavier fighters I am losing a lot power in clinch and parter. We will do it step by step so I will not lose on my speed."

This year Cro Cop is not gonna step into octagon. He should have first fight in first 2 months 2008.

"I would like to fight against Minotauro. Because deptum deviation I was losing power in middlle and at the end of fight but know I will not have that problem and I will prepare with pleasure for my future fights."
