I personally just want fun fights for Mirko from here on out. Nog, Kimbo and then maybe a couple up and comers, let him give some hype to Duffee or something.

JMO of course. I like Mirko. He is a respectful, classy guy. I just fear he lost the fire along time ago.
Don't get me wrong, I agree with most of what you are saying. And yes I'm a Mirko fan but I certainly don't see another run at the title for him. Nor do I see one for Ben. JDS is a top level heavyweight or at least appears to be at the moment. Losing to Junior showed that Cro Cop probably can't hang with the elite fighters at HW anymore but I don't see Ben being among those fighters. Ben's a tough SOB but I would put him more around the upper-mid to mid-level mark as far as the HW division goes. Basically I see this fight as making the difference between Cro-Cop being a mid-level gatekeeper or a high-level gatekeeper.

From the way things looked prior to his fight at 110 (I don't like to use 110 as an example because it wasn't typical UFC HW talent that he was facing and it was on short notice) Cro Cop seems to be on his way down the path toward becoming a big name for up-and-comers to make a name off of. I don't like the idea of this at all though and still have hope that Mirko can get his fighting ambition back. I'm not gonna hold my breath though .

Nice that we're getting to see this fight still. I was hoping they'd be able to sneak it onto the Versus card though. Given Anthony Johnson had to pull out of his fight there's a spot there and Cro Cop vs Rothwell would have filled that beautifully. A month's not long for Cro Cop to get ready, but I reckon he could have done it.
