Wanderlei Silva has made no execuses for his losss and has simply stated he wants to fight Mirko one more time

Cro Cop's redemption

"All about the night when Mirko Filipovic finally conquered his first major belt – after a KO over Wanderlei Siva and a crushing victory over Josh Barnett
The afternoon of September 10th in Japan began with two knee strikes, a mount and the choke from the back applied by Cyborg on Japanese bixer Nishijima. Or, at least, that’s how it started on the ring of Saitama Super Arena. A beginning just like the sushi Murilo Bustamante was eating back in Brazil when he said: “I’m going to root like crazy for Wanderlei Silva…” Let’s allow the reader to reflect for a second. “…In the first fight,” Minotauro’s training mate adds with an ironic tone of voice. He considers the Chute Boxe star to be a most suitable – or a less tricky - opponent for Nogueira.

Aloof to Bustamante’s interests, Wanderlei is jumping up and down in his corner, the mouth protector shinning white while Cro Cop is walking the plank. There’s clapping in Brazil and silence in Japan. The fight begins and Wand charges forward. This time, Cro Cop does not walk backwards. There’s no study. Mirko is more effective both in the dodging and the hitting. So much that Wand shoots the legs and puts Filipovic in his guard. After a few moments when the fight loses its rhythm, the fighters are back on their feet. Silva insists in going for it. Then, a right hand blow lands on his face and knocks him down. Quickly, Cro Cop enters Silva’s guard and punches repeatedly his foe’s nose and right eye – both areas already hurt. Blood gushes out and the fight is interrupted.

Body language is 60% of communication, according to Hitch, the character played by Will Smith in the movie with the same name. Wand’s thumb and index finger close together and the expression on his face give away what’s going on. “Just a bit more,” the subtitles would read if there were any. The referee nods his head. Captions: “It is over.” The gesture discussion goes on for a moment and Wand’s plead prevails: the fight continues. There are applauses in Brazil and agitation in Japan – where fans love the warrior spirit.

Cro Cop insists for the fight to resume on the ground.


It is a wise decision that hinders Silva from his last chance of recovery. From the guard, Wand looks like a tamed beast. There is not much he could do to express his anger. So the Chute Boxe star tries a series of short punches that have no effect at all on Cro Cop. The Croatian knows that once the fight returns to the stand up position, Wand would be a lot calmer.

Even so, it’s best not to risk it. Once both are up again, Cro Cop returns to his usual counter-strike game. He kicks Wand’s ribs. Wand keeps going forward. Mirko hits the ribs again. Wand seems not to be affected by it but he lowers his guard a bit. The next kick hits Wand’s head. It looks like a missile that was fired accurately and leaves a mark. A cut the size of a fist on the right side of Wand’s head. The Brazilian laid down unconscious. He was saved by the referee that prevented Cro Cop from continuing his attack. That was the shocking end of Wand’s adventure among the heavyweights.

“Mirko fought very well,” admitted later Rudimar Fedrigo, leader of the Chute Boxe Team. “I’m very upset. I guess no one expected such an outcome,” he continues. You couldn’t help noticing the prostration of the “big master” – mentor and kind of second father to Wanderlei. “I don’t like to see Wand hurt like that. His defeat affects all the team,” he confesses. “Of course he’s sad but he already told me that he’s going to be back and that he wants to face Mirko again.” Somebody close by comments that Mirko has no clue of the kind of trouble he has gotten himself into. “There’s no doubt about it,” says Fedrigo, looking into the future

What I could read of this was pretty interesting, there were all kinds of symbols inserted into the text. Wanderlei looked beat up bad in that pic. I think he was in survival mode at that point and anger was not the foremost thing on his mind.

CC by KO again.He has Wandy's number.Its just not a good match up for him. Dont get me wrong Wandy is a outstanding fighter but sometimes in sports theres always that one team,one guy that has your number.
Like:
Tito has Kens
Yankees have the Red Sox(im a red sox fan)
Michael Jordan had the whole western conference number at one time
Chuck has Babalu's
Tim has AA
Hughes has Triggs
I think i have made my point.

Another beating!

I would love to see Wandy take another beating. But I want Chuck to get to do it this time. Wandy is just a physically fit animal with no real skill. His fights are extremely entertaining though. I loved the begging for just a little more time in the corner. The doctors do the eye test as more of a test of will. If the fighter doesn't want to continue he can just stop tracking the finger and blame the doctor for calling the fight. He needs to stay at Light Heavyweight. The big guys can absorb most of his flailing away. He would be really dangerous if he allowed a Scottish boxing coach to show him how to throw those 13 punch combinations.

First off, Chuck would get kneed the **** out. And to say Wanderlai has no real skill is like say Shogun doesn't know how to clinch. Cmon, i would like to see you get in the ring and take out most heavyweights, and pretty much everyone in Pride. To have a winnin streak for 5 years says more than what Wand haters think. Didn't Chuck look bad at the Rampage fight, so how can another outstanding fighter have a bad match. The only thing that Wanderlai has a problem with is being so anxious and throwing punches when he shouldnt be..he needed to stay calm and not force the pace like the he did the first fight. And Wand imo opinion was robbed the first fight with Cro cop, so why can't a new fight and I would hope an improved and strategized Wanderlai win a fight with Cro Cop. Anything is possible.

Also, if Cro cop lost to Randelman, does that mean that he has CC's number? I mean its MMA, anything can happen. Cro cop is a beast, but anyones human, and for 2 greats fighters, its hard to predict. Though I think in LH, or Middleweight (Pride), Wandy would still dominate.

I think person A, should beat person B, at least 3 times before you can say person A has person Bs number. Sylvia doesn't have AA number, and Ortiz doesn't have Shamrocks number(until Oct. 10). CroCop has Barnetts' number, and Fedor has Noguieras' number. IMO.

I say if your 2-0 against a fighter you have their number. Chucks got Babalus number and Titos got Kens. Tim doesnt have AA's because he's 2-1.

Agreed. Chuck would destroy the monkey man but it's not gonna happen untill after he heals from the severe beating he just recieved.

Wand looked good for the fight, but CroCop is literally in the best shape he's ever been in. I don't know if he's going to keep up the intensity that he had trained at to ruin both Silva and Barnett at Final Countdown, but even Fedor needs to watch out if that's the case.

Silva is a great fighter to watch though. I've seen only a few better fights than when he busted Rampage Jackson apart in High Octane.

Winning a huge tournament is impressive enough but practically sending your last two opponents to the hospital is impressive on another level. Right now CroCop does have to worry about Silva or anyone else but Fedor and perhaps it is Fedor that needs to do the worrying.

i hope Mirko will not fight for the third time against Silva because i'm worrying about that men's health...and that statement "Mirko has no clue..." sounds to me that Silva will try to revenge to Mirko which is absurd and doesn't sound sportingly...but that man is like he is and their is no help with that
