Kimbo won't win, I can't imagine him win this fight. I'll be kindly surprised if he wins it though.

After all the leaks and what not, if he win's i'll be shocked. I'm guessing brutal life ending KO win for Kimbo, or maybe i'm just hoping for something more exciting then the two bore fest's so far.

I also am hoping for a brutal KO. These damned articles get you all turned around though, I guess I'll find out in about 30 minutes.

Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic: Fighting is a matter of life and death

http://mmamania.com/2009/10/11/mirko...ife-and-death/


Quote:
“I was very, very disturbed after the loss to Dos Santos. I was in such a state that I wished to hang myself in my hotel room so I would be gone. Three losses in my last seven fights is nothing but a disaster to me. That’s a terrible score and I’m not happy about it. I already know some things that I did wrong both in the fight and in the preparation for the fight, but there are many questions that remain to be answered. I am seriously thinking about hiring a psychiatrist to help me out. I have already made some calls about it … I will make some changes in my training, because I wish to fight twice more in the UFC. I am a fighter, and I will find the motivation and strength I need … If someone offered me millions of dollars to quit my career right now I would not accept it. [Fighting] is my life and I don’t know any other way to live.”
Former PRIDE FC superstar, Mirko Filipovic, reflects on his state of mind following his submission (verbal) loss to Junior dos Santos at UFC 103: “Franklin vs. Belfort” from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on Sept. 19. He was beaten to the punch, and pretty much beat up, in what essentially turned out to be a striking match for two-plus rounds. The Croatian waved off the Brazilian in the third after eating a brutal knee to the face that wiped out his vision. It marked his third loss inside the Octagon in five attempts — a far cry from the world beater who was scalping his opponents just three years ago under the Pride banner. In fact, he has not defeated a top-level fighter since he made Josh Barnett quit at “Final Conflict Absolute,” which earned him the Pride FC 2006 Open Weight Grand Prix Championship. Could this be the end of the road of Cro Cop’s long and distinguished professional career, which dates back to the mid 1990s? Or will he rise from the ashes and give it one more shot?
I certainly hope Mirko can get himself together because he certainly sounds like he is in a bad place....

I only seem to remember a lack of normal intensity wen thinking back over his last several fights....

I feel like he is the Brett Favre of the UFC is he coming back is he not.....after the last fight it seemed like he might be done.....It def seems like there is something going on in his mind but whatever it is he is battling it...

Thoughts??

I still think CroCop has the talent to have an impact on the heavyweight division in the UFC. But he needs to make some serious changes, changes that I am not sure he will be open to.

First, he really needs to take some time off and get his head together. He just doesn't seem psychologically strong, which is so important in fightng. In his Dos Santos fight it seemed like he was hesitant t pull the trigger. He needs to get his confidence back.

Second, and equally important, he needs to move to the U.S. and get a real training camp. He isn't training with the calibur of fighters that other UFC stars are now, and it shows. The only way I see him winning int he UFC again is if he takes the time and move to the U.S. to train at ATT, Team Jackson or Xtreme Couture. Yes, his striking is great. But it hasn't been great in a cage and he needs a great coach that can help him get used to the cage and use the cage to his strengths.

If he does these 2 things, I think he could do some damage.

I would love to see the resurrection of Mirko Crocop but here is what I have picked up on in his recent fights:

He always looks nervous like OH SHIT! when he is walking out to the octagon. He seems to lack confidence from even before the fight starts. So here's where I'm going with this:

I'm not a fighter but I have done law school and the exams are kinda like fights, for real. You have 12 weeks to "train" there are usually no mid-terms or whatever and then come test day you have to give your all and get your grade. So with that single performance determining my grade there were times that I was hungry to kick the test's ass and there were times when I felt like I was being lead to my execution.....because I knew I wasn't prepared for the test and I was pissed that I hadn't done more to prep when I knew I could have and really kicked ass.

I think Mirko is there. He needs to go to some camps....while his name means something still. A Greg Jackson camp would be ideal to rehabilitate Crocop. But for him to just continue to go back to what is not working and through out the same hyperbole "Ive trained harder than ever" for each fight. It doesn't seem like he believes that on the way to the ring or in the fights. I think he was working harder in his Pride days and that is evidence on film.

I have been critical of Crocop for a long time but there is no better fighting story then for someone to redeem himself.

The second part I think def would make a difference and people will go to great lengths to explain why someone is losing, I have heard he travels like 2 das before the fight all the way from home.....

Thats actually really bad, and would be somthing that your soloution fixes....

I think there needs to be huger there, and I also believe there is such thing as being hungry and still thinking you are!
