Rizzo and Big Nog on Cro Cop (2005)

Below is a few comments made by Rizzo and Big Nog on Cro Cop in 2005..

Rizzo: I was betting everything on Fedor. I lived with Mirko in a gym for two months, in the same room. He doesn’t have a warrior’s heart. You just have to see his style, always backwards. Peter Aerts said something I agree on: “The longer the fight takes, the more chances Mirko has of losing it.” He has no heart to turn a fight upside down.

Nogueira: Fedor, on his side, will fight you to death.

And Cro Cop fights in the counter-attack, waiting for a hole to get in, which is easier in any kind of martial art. The one who attacks more exposes themselves…

Rizzo: But when you push the rhythm up it gets easier to trap them. Fedor has that styles, like Shogun’s, of going irresponsibly, and that smothers counter-attacks. But indeed Fedor got out of that fight more injured than Mirko.

Nogueira: What if the opposite happens: Fedor gives Mirko one of those nose blows? I think Mirko just calls for the waiter and asks for the check.

Rizzo: Yes, Mirko never takes the initiative. I always cheer against him. It’s like Bob Sapp winning K-1, a big guy with no technique.

Pretty tough words from Rizzo and Nog, does anyone here see a bit of truth in there comments?

I for one would love to see Cro Cop do better in the UFC, but if His last 2 fights are an indicator of things to come, then maybe He should retire?? I am ofcourse speaking as a Cro Cop fan, I love the guy...

Also, given the situation where He told Big John McCarthy "I'm to old for this" during the fight where Kongo kicked him in the balls..Does Cro Cop have the heart to succeed in MMA/UFC? Discuss

Rizzo would get his ass kicked by CroCop so he should just leave it at that. The fight can last 30 years and CroCop would just beat him senseless.

K thanks well that is an intersting interview. They make very good points. Cro Cop is very passive which we all already knew and when he has been attacked he has had problems.

But the best part of that interview is them calling Fedor fat.

I know! That's funny shit!

What we must do is to push one another and train harder. Further, the fact that he is fat makes it even more complicated when it comes to such an explosive, slippery fellow. It’s like Jeremy Horn, when the guy is fat an the skin is smooth, it gets hard to grab him.

I like it when fighters share their thoughts as open as they did. I hope this will happen more often.

I agree Bro!

It makes you feel like you kinda "know them" when other fighters talk personally about each other.

Repped.

Rizzo really shouldn't be talking about Mirko having no heart. I mean, Rizzo has done far worse than Cro Cop has.

Mirko has all the talent in the world, but yeah, he does have a tendency to mentally quit if the going gets tough.

Pedro Rizzo can't say anything about backing up and not taking the initiative. He never, ever takes the initiative and counter punches the whole fight whether he's winning or losing.
