Mirko - No Respect For The UFC

He walked in there with Pride music, barely said a word during the post-fight interview, and insulted Eddie for running away (in a very politically correct way). He doesnt seem to happy to be fighting in UFC....

In Mirko's eyes, you have to earn his respect. You don't earn it by just being there or running away. I really wished Mirko came out to Wild Boys, that would have been funny. He is usually like that at post interviews, not big on words for a match that is pointless.

He can barely speak English. I wouldn't speak much either.
I don't see what the big deal of any of this is.
Music, who cares really. English isn't his first language. It's a world sport, not USA only. Who would say anything positive about an opponent that runs away?


I think his is just a very introvert type of person who doesn't say much and stays focused.

I know what you're sayin man....I ve seen every one of his fights - but he just seemed the same way he did after the Oyama or Yamamoto fights. He was almost rude with his facial expression.

He speaks perfect English; just because he has a heavy accent, it doesnt mean he cant speak the language.

Dude be serious. Did CC Pay the UFC 7, or even the rumored 8 figures to fight in there? No, so who's kissing who's ass?

Would you rather listen to Arlovski say a lot of syllables but no words? He's a foreigner. At least he makes the effort to speak English instead of having everything translated (not hating on people that do, just saying be happy he even speaks English at ALL.)

hit the nail on the head, cro cop isn't a talker at all. he's stone faced before and after fights. what was there to say? i think his performance spoke for itself.

Perfect english? What school did you go to? lol
I see what your saying but I just don't think he's comfortable enough to speak enough of it.

I'm confused. You have him in your avy though.

I dunno man, I ve heard him speak English with fluidity in several cases in his pre-fight Pride interviews. I just think he didnt feel like talking...

I think with interviews he has people there to help him and they can edit and do more than one take. Everytime I see him in the ring it's really just his immediate thoughts and that's it. Give him another chance man!
