the fact is when he arrived in the ufc he was absolutely useless and his fight spirit was gone look at this stat, pre ufc 21-4-2 after he joined the ufc 27-9-2 and a 3-3 ufc record with a few asian fights in between, koed 3 times and lost once on submission to a jds punch in that time and has only beaten the bums in perosh,sanchez,a handicapped barry and mostapha al turk, and finally the head kick finish never came in the ufc

I cannot say I'm saddened by this.

Mirko should have known after that he's just done as a fighter. Pat Barry pretty much gave him that win...he beats up on guys that even HE isn't proud of doing so. Now he's just become a highlight reel. He should have left with dignity years ago. I can't blame a guy for not wanting to leave a sport he loves, but I just can't feel bad for what happens to him in the process.

God i love CroCop. I put 200k points on him purely because i use his NUTS to keep warm at night.

CroCop was doing so well too. Even threw a couple of LHK that he didnt set up though. A few times throughout the fight i was thinking. "If he threw the LHK there he would have gotten the KO." Im sad his mind aint as sharp as it used to be. I still thought he would have won a split decision or even thought he could have gotten a finish late in the third. Then he got dropped like a rag doll. Killed me a little inside.

That would be the best thing to do for him really!

And Dana's comment leave a lot for interpretation. He didn't say Cro Cop was cut/fired by the UFC/ZUFFA.
just that he won't fight in the UFC anymore.

I'm assuming that means Strikeforce for him.

There are some names that would sound good for him, fedor included.

.



BELIEVE!

He may end up in SF, but Dana seemed to think he was just done. I didn't watch the post fight presser, but this's from mmajunkie:

Quote:
Following back-to-back losses and his steady descent in the world heavyweight rankings, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic (27-9-2 MMA, 4-5 UFC) apparently is headed into retirement.

And following Filipovic's loss to Brendan Schaub (8-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at Saturday's UFC 128 event, UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) he doesn't expect much push back from the fighter.

"I don't think I'd have an argument from 'Cro Cop,'" he said.

In a pay-per-view main-card bout at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., Schaub delivered the former PRIDE great a violent third-round knockout defeat. Schaub overpowered Filipovic for most of the fight and then floored him with a right hook to the side of the head in the final few minutes of the fight.

Filipovic also suffered a knockout loss in his previous bout, which came at UFC 119 to Frank Mir.

White said he'll always respect what the 36-year-old Croatian has accomplished in the sport. But he doesn't expect Filipovic back in the cage.

"I was talking tonight about how tough Mirko 'Cro Cop' is," White said. "At his age and with the wars he's been in, to see how he gets in there with these heavyweights now that are bigger, stronger and younger than he is – and he still holds his own – it's a testament to what a great fighter that guy was in his prime.

"I have all respect for Mirko 'Cro Cop,' but yeah, I'd have to say tonight is probably the last time we'll see 'Cro Cop' fight again."

White, though, said he hadn't talked to Filipovic before or after the fight about future plans. But based on his assessment, it's clear it's likely not the fighter's decision to make whether he returns to the UFC.

Filipovic went 2-3 in his most recent UFC stint and 1-2 in a heavily anticipated first stint back in 2007. The 2006 PRIDE open-weight grand-prix winner failed to capture the form that led him to a top world-heavyweight ranking and past victories over the likes of Wanderlei Silva, Josh Barnett, Aleksander Emelianenko and Mark Coleman.

Additionally, while once known for an electric striking game and head-kick knockouts, his recent bouts lacked that pizazz. In fact, after back-to-back losses to Gabriel Gonzaga and Cheick Kongo in 2007, he briefly left the UFC and fought in Japan before rejoining the UFC for his latest (and apparently final) stint.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
