Crocop Takes a Cheapshot at Fedor aswell!

Talk about being a corporate hack!!!

Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic uttered the phrase "I don't know" more than a dozen times Tuesday afternoon when asked for his thoughts about why Fedor Emelianenko declined to sign with the UFC, saying over and over again that he can't figure out what is preventing his old Pride rival from fighting in the world's biggest mixed martial arts promotion.

Cro Cop, who lost to Fedor four years ago in Pride in a battle that was widely regarded at the time as featuring the two best heavyweights in MMA, said he couldn't come up with a logical explanation for why Fedor would prefer to fight in Strikeforce/M-1 Global co-promotions, rather than in the UFC.

"I like Fedor as a fighter, as a man, I don't want to insult Fedor, but I don't understand his attitude -- I don't know him well enough to say anymore, I don't know if someone else controls him," Cro Cop said. "I don't know. I don't know the situation. But I really don't understand why he doesn't want to enter the UFC. Definitely the UFC offered him the best possible deal, to pay him much more than Dream can offer or Strikeforce can offer, but he's just refusing to go there. I don't know why. I think he should take the challenge but why, i don't know. I don't think he's afraid, but I think he wants to keep his perfect record, maybe he thinks the UFC is too tough. I think he should come. Why he's not there, I don't know."

Cro Cop continued in that vein for a couple more minutes, repeatedly saying that he doesn't know what Fedor is thinking in his refusal to sign with the UFC. Cro Cop stressed that he respects Fedor, but he also said he believes the UFC has the best heavyweight division of any MMA promotion, and that he believes Fedor should fight the best.

The bottom line, though, is that Fedor has made it very clear what his reasons are: He's made a business decision to work for M-1 Global exclusively, and he won't fight in the UFC until the UFC agrees to co-promote with M-1. And that means we all need to accept the likelihood that Fedor will never fight in the UFC

Its pretty simple Fedor can make a lot more money co-promoting then he can simply fighting for the UFC. He is a smart buisness man. I dont see the problem with that.

How is he being a hack? Seems like a pretty legitimate opinion to me, I would love to see CroCop vs Fedor. People are thinking too little of Mirko right now, he's a world class fighter. Thanks for the article man.

If he was being spoonfed by Dana it would've been more like

"I don't ******* know why Fedor didn't sign. This ******* guy can't fight and he's expecting to viciously knockout every Strikeforce HW because this guy is scared of the UFC...****"

Quit instigating stuff.

A cheap shot is hitting him in the back of the leg with a lead pipe 25 minutes before his fight... this is his opinion.

I'm glad he's found a business solution that works for him, but in the interest of his career... he picked the wrong avenue. Now instead of Fedor going down in the record books as the best HW ever... he's going to be known as "could have been the best HW ever".

Cro Cop - "Fedor completely wrecked my shit when we fought, he kicked my ass, he's better than I am, he proved it. He will also eventually fight Overeem, the man who beat the shit out of me. This must be a good time for me to say he is avoiding tough competition while I sit and explain to everyone how I'm manning up and fighting guys who have the UFC brand slapped across their face".

That's what I got from the article, anyways.

Honestly, people trying to bring down Fedor's reputation based on the fact that he's not fighting with the UFC brand slapped across his face, lose almost all respect from me instantly.
