For someone who’s famously introverted, every so often we really get a close glimpse of Mirko Crocop’s life. I guess with a lot of other fighters, there’s so much information out there about them that no one gives a shit what they said yesterday because it’s likely to be the same thing they said last month and last year. With Mirko, every interview or article is like a drop of liquid in the fucking desert: that liquid could be urine and you’re still licking it up and begging for more.
The latest news comes from Mirko cornerman ‘Fortunal’, who’s a part of Nokaut, Mirko’s website. The gist of the article is that he sat down with Mirko and our boy is basically re-energized and ready to do his best against whoever the UFC puts in front of him.
Yeah … so what? Well, you really have to read the article to pick up on the optimism and enthusiasm conveyed through it. God knows I’m not good at presenting that kind of ‘positive’ stuff. But after reading that thing, I’m confident that I won’t be feeling shame next time I slip on my Croatian flag underwear for a Crocop fight.
