Mirko Cro Cop: "Brendan Schaub won't last three rounds with me."

Quote:
"I still have even bigger competitive fire than before. Right now, I'm completely healthy and looking forward for the fight. He's good, he's young, hungry, but he's just a rookie in this sport. Brenden Schaub won't survive three rounds with me." -Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic


Coming off of a loss in what some viewed a lackluster performance against former UFC champion Frank Mir, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic has declared himself completely healthy and ready to put "rookie" Brendan Schaub in his place.

Schaub (8-1) is coming off of a huge win over heavyweight contender Gabriel Gonzaga, who famously gave Cro Cop a taste of his own medicine at UFC 70 where he landed a head kick which floored the then highly regarded UFC heavyweight contender.

Since then, Cro Cop's career has been a mixed bag. He lost subsequent fights against top contenders such as Cheik Kongo, Junior dos Santos and the aforementioned Mir, but has gotten by lesser skilled opponents over that time frame including; Tatsuya Mizuno, Choi Hong-man, Mostapha Al-turk, Anthony Perosh and Pat Barry, which has kept him relevant in the division.

A win over Schaub could thrust him back into title contention, but at 36-years-old and the sport advancing at a breakneck pace, does Cro Cop have another run in him, or will another young lion capitalize off of his legendary name

I like Mirko as much as the next guy, but I think he's delusional at this point. I don't see anyway that he wins this fight. When was the last time he really put it to someone in the UFC? I think it's going to be another sad night of watching Mirko get beaten to the punch.

EbonGear has a little shameless behaviour in the past
That would be awesome but he's probably not going to let his hands or feet go and eventually get himself knocked out or submitted.

I root for Mirko each and every time, but I think Schaub takes this, and probably by TKO/KO

I'm up for whatever Mirko has to say to get himself pumped up for this fight as long as he delivers something devastating.

Realistically Schaub takes this one but I'm 100% Mirko either way.

i still think schaub is terrible, and even though cro cop isnt NEAR what he used to be i still think he can beat schaub

schaub will never be a TOP HW IMO...idk why so many ppl think he has so much potential, but hell..maybe im just being a dumbass and he will prove me wrong this fight

his win over gonzaga wasnt really impressive to me, i think even an old cro cop can take care of him, if he fights like he did against barry he can win

i think the mir fight he didnt really care, stepped in late just for the money, this fight he probably doesnt care much either but i doubt he will just accept the loss like he did against mir
