Quote of the Day: Cro Cop Says Sonnen is Slow and Has the IQ of a Kid’s Shoe Size

Quote:
It usually takes a lot to upset Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, but the Croation fighter seemed to have reached a boiling point while doing a live chat on Croation sports news website Gol.hr this week. Although he made mention a handful of times during the interview of the fact that he wasn’t mad at Chael Sonnen for the recent comments “The American Gangster” made about PRIDE fights being fixed, you can tell that Chael struck a nerve with his offhand remarks.

“There is an old proverb that says: ‘Don’t argue with a fool. People won’t be able to tel the difference.’ I’ve always upheld to that. I never wanted to lower myself to that level…I’m not the first one he has taken a shot at. I had the opportunity when I was in the United States to ask some people who work for the UFC, ‘Is this man crazy or is he just craving attention?’ A man higher up in the UFC told me, ‘He’s both,’ which means he is crazy and is also craving attention,” Filipovic explained. “I’m not mad at him. I’m really not mad at this Sonnen character.”

Filipovic, who is preparing for perhaps the last fight of his storied MMA career against Roy Nelson at UFC 137 in two weeks, then went on to take a few potshots at Sonnen’s intelligence.

“I don’t want your viewers to get offended. I am not the creator of any anthropological theories, but you can tell by his face that the man is slow — that he is stupid and he has the IQ of a children’s shoe size. You can tell this by his face. The way he communicates and let’s not get into his calling out of people like [Minotauro] Nogueira, diminishing Fedor’s or Wanderlei Silva’s or my accomplishments and so on — people whose heights he will never reach. Is he crazy? He obviously is, but I’m not mad at him,” cro Cop explained. “It’s just as I can’t get mad at my eight-month-old son, Fillip. The other day he walked over, took my glove and threw it on the floor. Should I get mad? That’s a child who doesn’t understand. It’s the same with Sonnen. He doesn’t understand. I can’t be mad at him about such accusations about fixed fights.That is a man who no one should pay attention to.”

Whether or not he’s mad at Sonnen is of secondary importance to the more pressing question: Did he really name his son Fillip Filipovic? Man, that’s a name that’s going to haunt that kid later in life.

I recall having read this a few months ago. I personally think Cro Cop's claim to be able to facial profile someone's IQ is rather absurd.

I like Crocop, but Chael even at his weight would give him a challenge in the cage.

If Chael doesn't win the MW belt this would be a great fight at LHW. He would retire Cro cop.

I can't believe any pro fighters take Chael seriously. Ideally, if you interview any UFC fighter about Chael's antics, the response should be "He markets his fights well."


Anything beyond that is just being absolutely naive. CroCop taking Chael so seriously is sort of disheartening, I'd think CroCop to be smarter than that.

I think he knows the deal like everyone else but, when it's his name in Chael's mouth it's different.

He is a PRIDEFUL man.

Translation:

"I'm not mad at Chael Sonnen, but he is essentially a retard who I would fight - out of anger - on the streets were our paths ever to cross."

Crocop would destroy Chael Sonnen in a verbal face to face battle.

When Wanderlei Silva is humiliating you face to face in a verbal situation, you've got problems.

We've still yet to see the comedian Chael actually challenge a fighter face to face and engage in a verbal battle of words. Well, the only time we actually witnessed some one stand up to him was when he was locked in a car with Wanderlei Silva and he just sat there as silent as a lamb with nothing to say.

Chaels interviews can be funny, but they are all rehearsed and planned out, he probably went over that post Stann fight speech in his head over 100 times.
