Cro Cop Giving Big Tim Some Credit...

i was looking at some of cro cops quotes and came up with this



"He is the reigning heavyweight champion of the UFC, and I should respect him for that," said Cro Cop of Sylvia. "It's not easy to become the champion in any ring or cage. I know that for a fact. He must have worked harder, and spilled more sweat and blood than his rivals, that's why he is there at the top. Nobody should discredit him for his effort and determination and I'm looking forward to meeting him in the Octagon."

aparently when he was at pride he wasnt so keen on him

Yeh I read that article too. Cro Cop is a very intelligent guy I couldn't see him as the type to come into the UFC stirring up problems other than with his skills. It seems he respects Tim for getting to the top of the chain where Cro Cop came so close until meeting Fedor... Let the Class Act begin his reign of terror in the UFC 07!

Cro Cop is, and has always been, a credit to MMA as a whole. He is the kind of person who really is what a fighter should be, and obviously is.

Of course Cro Cop isn't going to discount Tim. More than other foreign fighters, Cro Cop is a representative for his native Croatia, both as an athlete and a statesman. It certainly wouldn't be prudent for him to bash any of the reigning UFC champs no matter now boring they may be. He's right that Tim has worked hard to get where he is, even if he has forgotten how to finish a fight. Tim has a right to be proud of what he has accomplished. However, it must be noted that Tim's size is largely responsible for him being where he is. He is king of the heavyweight hill, but he also has to cut weight just to be able to fight in that division, a division which has the highest weight variance in MMA. Tim outweighs most of his opponents by at least thirty pounds, an advantage that no other UFC champ enjoys. Where guys like GSP, Anderson and Chuck dominate and finish guys their own size, Tim DECISIONS guys who are at a serious size disadvantage.

crocop isn't gonna talk crap on tim simply because if he points out how bad he is, then its not gonna be a big deal if he beats tim. crocop has to treat sylvia as an upcoming opponent...with respect and class.

Notice how the guys always talking shit (Ortiz, Diaz, etc.), never seem to be able to back it up? Cro Cop is a class act, but eventually he'll have to get some good sound bites, and know how to sell a fight. Randy Couture is a good example.

I"m so happy Crocop is in the UFC now. Class Acts just make the fights much more enjoyable.

CroCop is such a classy dude. I wish I could say the same for Tim, but he's not.

There are only a few guys in the sport who have CroCop's kind of class. Fedor and Couture are both definitely up there, but CroCop is a totally different level of smart. He's got that Croatian Education.
