One more for Mirko Crocop

Everyone thought that Mirko was getting the ol’ forced retirement from Dana White following his losses to Frank Mir and Brendan Schaub. Dana even went so far as to declare the end at a press conference following the Schaub knockout. But everyone knows that Dana has a fanboy g-spot tucked deep inside and Crocop knows how to get up there and tickle it:

UFC president Dana White on Wednesday said that Cro Cop asked for and will receive the final agreed-upon fight from his contract at a future date to be determined.

White stated that he and Cro Cop (27-9-2, 1 no decision) had made a deal, and he would “honor my deal.” He offered no further details as to when or who he would face in the bout.

“Do I think he should have retired? Yeah,” White said. “But I don’t think he’s in one of these situations like Chuck Liddell, who needed to retire right then. He’s a man, a grown man, and if he wants to continue to fight, that’s his right. And he still has a fight with me.”

Let’s just pray that the UFC puts him in a fight that fans actually care about for once. No more Ben Rothwells, Pat Barrys, or Mostapha Al-Turks. Give us at least one fucking PRIDE legacy fight, huh Zuffa? Just goddamn one??? Mark Hunt is still on your roster. Or we could wait until Big Nog’s new hips get tested out against Brendan Schaub and make that fight. I guess a rematch with Cheick Kongo would also be acceptable if the cheating Frenchman promised not to pulverize Mirko’s nuts again. Just … something interesting.

    Barnett maybe? I wouldn’t bet on him ever fighting on a UFC card but that might be an okay fight. Fedor maybe, in the same vein.

    The problem with these matchups is that they’re fan service for the longtime/hardcore crowd and they’re not what moves the needle necessarily as far as money goes.

    God I know its wishful thinking but as a die hard Cro Cop fan I want so badly for him to get one last impressive finish. And I agree please put him in there we someone he is on par with and that the fans give a fuck about. 


    War Cro Cop

    Cro Cop suxx.

    Dear Nite Rider,

    When you get a moment please leave last decade & join us.


    The present.

    Anyone but Nog or Herring is pointless.

  • Night Rider

    Dear Frick, Could care less, Cro Cop is and always will be a legend, that said I think he deserves whatever sendoff he wants.


    If you choose to hate on these guys once they are past their prime from war after war throughout their career that’s fine. I choose to give these guys the same thing online that we all would in person. Respect. I truly don’t understand the mentality of clowning these guys, like Chuck, Wand, Cro Cop etc. who just want to go out on a big win, when they have more balls than most of us . Get real

    night rider: if you could careless… why dont you?

  • Night Rider

    Sorry, by care less I meant I could care less if I’m trapped in last decade.

    And on the other front still feel the same and I was just surprised to see it from Frick, he like most on this site will rag on fighters make fun etc. but still usually respect them, just reminded me of shit I see on other shitty sites.


    I agree that Cro Cop is not what he once was at all. However I wouldn’t say he “suxx” and I still believe he deserves an honorable sendoff. I don’t blame him for wanting to go out on a win. That’s all

    Nighty Nite–>Cro Cop is acting like a desperate gambler down to his last chip. Instead of hoping for the 100 to 1 payout…..walk away with some dignity.

    Considering you’re new to posting & don’t know me very well, I’ll give you a quick recap: I respect the shit out of any high level athlete. That doesn’t mean I should lie about their current state of skills. Mirko is not only on his way down (physically AND mentally)…..he’s almost to the bottom. So even though YOU don’t give a fuck about his health…..I actually do. He doesn’t “owe” us any more thrills. He had a Hall Of Fame career. That’s enough. Time to hang it up.

  • Night Rider

    If that was your original post , or something similar, I wouldnt have had that reaction. But your first post was just he suxx. Agree or disagree I can definitely say that I can respect your updated opinion.

    I just respect Mirko’s more.


  • G Funk

    You know that Frick’s first post was funny and you fucked up a potentially good comments section with your reactive words. This. Is. FIGHTLINKER!

    I can’t believe how uncouth the guy named after a drunken cage fighter was.

    And thanks G, it’s the manifestation of Homer Simpson in flesh.
