I hope Cro Cop can get it together. He's a great fighter and seems like a great guy. Is he still training out of his basement as they implied in the UFC not too long ago? If so, as said two comments above mine, that is his biggest hurdle right now. He needs a good camp, and more importantly needs to surround himself with good fighters and good people, I think Jackson's camp would do wonders for him.

His fight against Dos Santos was only he second time I had to cheer against Cro Cop, the first being Gonzaga... other than that. I truly hope Mirko can come back and send some people crashing to the mat.

Cro cop will pull his head out of his ass. I got faith in him.

Cro needs to surround himself with a positive team that can cater to the skills that got him there in the first place mixed with the usual. WHat or who does his training camp consist of these days anyone know?

It pains me to say I think Cro Cop is done. I don't think he can really make much of an impact in the current heavyweight division, and if his mental state is really that bad he just retire and get the help he needs.

I've always been a big Cro Cop fan but enough is enough, reading that was difficult and continuing fighting isn't likely to help the situation.

While I was reding his quote I thought that Jackson's camp would be perfect for him too. Arlovski is going to be training there for 10 days, so he should go with him. Jackson can light that fire under his assagain and I'm sure having Rashad, Marquardt and GSP as partners wouldn't be too shabby either. Perhaps GSP can lend Cro Cop his psychiatrist's phone number as well.

Sorry but after that brutal K.O I think he will always be gun shy.

I think spending some time at a high-profile camp would do wonders for Cro-Cop. Do I think he still has a chance to make an impact on the HW division? Yeah. But that's best case scenario for sure.

I think Mirko should have retired after he won the OWGP...

Gonzaga stole his soul, Kongo & Overeem proved Cro Cop left long ago, those wins over that japanese guy who Thiago Silva toyed with and Al-Turk didn't prove anything that we didn't already know, and Dos Santos sealed his fate.

We'll never forget your epic battles against the greatest fighters in the world and your highlight reel KOs... Have fun fishing Mirko.

Crocop is a great kickboxer and could dominate low-level organizations but he shouldn't be back in the UFC cuz he can't win against the top guys, or even the prospects.

I really feel for him. Sounds like he has a lot to sort out in his life. He isn't getting any younger so if he still wants to be a force within the MMA world he needs to take the advice of the other posters on this board and go to a top level camp that can make use of his skills. Heres hoping you get better soon, Cro..
