Mirko's Ground Game?

Does he have one? I watched a bunch of his fights and I don't remember any of them going to the ground. If someone were to bring him down on the ground how will Cro Cop handle it?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

CroCop can fight on the ground, he just chooses not to. Fedor had him on the ground for a while and CroCop did good.

Exactly.....Fedor had Crocop on the ground and couldn't submit him or pound him out so that says something. With that said, Crocop is extremly good at defending when he's on his back but you probably won't see him go for a triangle....Getting him to the ground is also a feat in itself, he's got great take down defense and even when you get him to the ground there isn't much you'll be able to do with it cause his defense is so good....big nog is the only one whos been able to submit him.

Submitting a world class wrestler like randleman also says something as well..

Cro Cop works ground game with Werdum...so I think its safe to say he's pretty good on the ground. And if Fedor couldn't submit him, thats saying something as well.

Saku took him down, most of that fight was on the ground.Cro cop has good ground and pound. Fantastic fight too, shame it got stopped due to injury, Saku was doing well and the fight was fought in great spirit with the two fighters even laughing together at one point

Cro Cop has good ground Defence mainly because his legs are so damn strong. His sprawl is probably the best in the business and I seen him actually TKO a guy off his back with punches, I dont remember who it was but i have never seen anyone else do that.
