I'll never believe in CC again. Sorry guys, he is dead to me. His never ending cycle of "the fire is reborn" followed by crappy performance (win or lose) followed by excuses is enough.

I think Grabriel broke him and Overeem crushed what was left of his spirit.

how did he "accept the loss" against mir? it may have been a boring fight, possibly the MOST boring fight I have ever witnessed, but he didn't "accept the loss", Mir KO'd him hard.

ps. aside from that, I'm still not impressed with Schaub. I think Crocop still has what it takes to take him out.

Yup, he should go in there and block right hands with his face so he can break Brandon's hands/feet.

well even before the fight he was already saying how if he lost its because he didnt have time to prepare, what kind of mentality is that? and he always kept saying that it was just a favor for the UFC, he wasnt ready for this fight and bla bla bla

it just seemed like he knew he was going to lose, he was already prepared mentally to lose, watch the fight he doesnt even try to win, he does nothing, he went in there to survive and thats pretty much it, he got a HUGE paycheck from the UFC for that fight, i think he just wanted the money, not the victory

obviously these are only assumptions, i could be 100% wrong, but in the barry fight to me it looked like he wanted to win, in the mir fight he just didnt care, just wanted to grind out a decision, win or lose, get that nice paycheck and get out

i think he will want to finish schaub, especially because he probably thinks he really can..thats what i hope!

Cro Cop is an awful fighter.

He won't last three rounds because hes going to knock you out and go home unscathed.

Schaub at least comes to fight and is a spledid athlete.

I disagree to a point, I compare Cro-cop to a Corvette with a novice driver: A total beast and capable of hanging with anything, but not the right driver.

If he came in trying to WIN like he did back in Pride, he'd be more than just a big name, he'd be relevant. BUT since he seems scared to engage and timid as hell he'll probably get KTFO'd

He's not even physically good fighter. He's old and undertrained.

Just like a younger CC got high kicked to sleep by Gonzo?

He looked good vs. Barry? What I remember is Barry kicking the shit out of CC but not trying to finish him while break a foot and a hand, while CC had to resort to TD attempts.

I'm not sure what Schaub will be but he is praised because he is an athletic HW that is new to the game. Each fight he is going to improve a lot.

He isn't good enough yet to say CC has no shot. But Cro Cop hasn't had a relevant win since 2006. He is all but done at this point.

I wasn't going to say "awful" but yeah, this. Based on his last few fights it would be a miracle if Cro Cop lasted three rounds with Schaub, not the other way around. Cro Cop had his moments but honestly how many mediocre/bad performances can he throw out there and STILL have people thinking he is going start knocking people out?

He is done and the sooner he stops fighting the happpier I'll be. I don't want to remember him losing to mediocre fighters I want to remember his glory days and he is making it harder and harder to do that.

Schaub is going to think he's back in the TUF house after this fight.
