I agree.

As of right now, he hasn't done anything in particular w/ dream to indicate that he would do any better.

He needs a few more fights to indicate any kind of change or development.

Yes, because past performances over some of the best competition in the world should have no bearing on Mirko's capabilities.

What because UFC's top 10 heavyweights are any good?

And people aren't too well rounded for him at all, you think that he is just as good as he was, but people are just better now than they were when he was killing fools??

Not a chance. Mirko in his old form would be UFC champion right now, his standup would KILL Gonzaga. And Gonzaga won't take him down, he wouldn't be able to in Mirko's old form. The only reason he got him down this time was because of a caught body kick.

Nobody has ever recovered after two losses, you're right.

Your right, Mirko looks great. He is still the same fighter he was in 05-06 and is the 2nd best fighter in the world behind Fedor, my bad.

Gonzaga truly took everything Crocop had in him. You could see it when he faught Kongo, he was a shell of him former self. Is it impossible for him to get back to the way he was, I guess not. But do I see it happening?? No, not a chance. If he fights Overeem he will lose.

We'll have to sig bet on that one.

Do you think he would lose to Sergei aswell or not?

I disagree with almost everything you said.

When CC fought Kongo, he looked good until the axe kick the messed up his rib. Plus, he took about three straight knees to the boys. So I don't see how you can use the fight to establish that he's done.

And as for Gonzaga, he lost. There is no reason to extrapolate from that one fight that CC is done as a top fighter.

Also, any flaw that CC has currently, there is no reason to think that he can't still overcome them. He's only 34, way below retirement age for MMA fighters, and still has arguably the best striking in MMA. To think that he is finished and can't possible come back to the top seems awfully short-sighted IMO.

See, heres the difference, what I said sarcastically about what you said actually had some relevance, what you said just there did not have any. Fail.
