I loved watching this dude fight when watching the old Pride videos. He was ultra quick and powerful, now he is a shell of himself. I am psyched Pride is on Friday nights now so that people can see the old and impressive Cro Cop before he became old and lethargic overnight, it seems. I doubt he can recapture what he had, but in his prime he was so sick with that lefty high leg kick.
Someone mentioned on here months ago that they got all twitchy whenever they saw CC's left leg come up. I stole that line and have been living by it whenever I see CC fight (which is mostly on YouTube now )
Don't cry for CC. He is a member of his country's legislative body, I think, and has legend superstud badass status throughout most of the world.
Cro Cop will always be a favourite of mine, was hard to see him spiral after Pride, but he will always have one of the best MMA highlight reels. No one even comes close to his image, backed up by the best high kick in MMA.
It's very sad, his situation. Unfortunately he is not a member of Parliament for a long time now. He resigned from his position 6 months through his term, which was a long time ago. At least we have his old fights.
