Not only did Gonzaga brutally destroy Crocop in the ring, he stole the fucker’s will to fight completely. Reported all over the net first as a rumour a week ago and now confirmed by many outlets, Mirko Crocop plans to retire once the final 4 fights of his UFC contract are up.

In a recent interview, Filipovic, 32, had voiced his interest in revisiting his former trade with the special police. “It was a great time of my life,” he said. “I’m seriously thinking of returning to my unit after I finish my Parliament duties.” Filipovic has six months remaining on his government term.

Of course, it’s more likely that Crocop is just tired of having to drag his way up organization ladders. First K1, then Pride, and now the UFC. I’d be fucking pissed off too if I iced half of the best heavyweights in the world and then had to start from scatch again. I can also understand why he would undertrain. Where’s the motivation?

Anyways, Crocop is always talking about retiring from fighting, but I think he’s like a junkie: he hates it but he loves it. He’s going to push himself hard to establish a legacy with these last four fights, and then he’ll just get caught back up with the quest to be the #1 heavyweight in the world.

So whatchoo waiting for? Go listen to it!

Everyone else is doing it, so I guess I should put my two cents in. Damn peer pressure. First pot, then heroin, and now a UFC71 summary. I’ve officially hit rock bottom.

Most Boring Fight: Terry Martin vs Ivan Salaverry
Ivan Salaverry is a dull fighter. It’s not his fault, it’s just his style. Regardless, I see this matchup as Dana White’s final olive branch to the salty veteran: beat Terry Martin, do it in an exciting fashion. But considering Ivan’s attitude going into the fight, I think at best he’s going to come out and play it safe. At worst he’s going to try and make this the most boring 15 minutes of our lives. Terry Martin simply hasn’t exhibited the skills needed to put away someone like Salaverry.

Most Exciting Fight: Karo Parisyan vs Josh Burkman
If you consider a bloodbath exciting, then Karo Parisyan vs Josh Burkman is your fight. Karo is at his best when he’s pissed off, and from the last few weeks of interviews it seems like the chip on his shoulder has turned into a boulder. Burkman is known for blowing his load early, so expect a good push by him at the beginning followed by a sound thrashing by Parisyan.

Biggest Upset: Houston Alexander
Keith Jardine is getting all sorts of hype because he beat Forrest Griffin, but I think he’s overhyped (seems like nowadays just saying Greg Jackson’s name gives people a boner). After watching his previous fights, I don’t think he’s got what it takes to be considered a top guy in the LHW division. Expect this to go to a decision, with Houston Alexander edging out a win.

Best Submission: Kalib Starnes
Chris Leben’s going to go in swinging, and Kalib Starnes is gonna catch him.

Best Knockout: Quinton Jackson or Chuck Liddell
I don’t know who’s gonna win, but I know it’s going to be impressive. Chuck will take him out early or Quinton will push this to the later rounds and tag a gassed Liddell. Either way, someone’s gonna get KTFO.

Who’s on the edge:
Carmelo Marrero: Win or lose, this guy always looks terrible. Unless he pulls out some fireworks in this fight, don’t expect to see him back in the UFC

Chris Leben: Combine a loss against Starnes with his idiotic talk about wanting to fight in Icon and you’ve got a guy who’s not gonna be around much longer. Don’t expect him to make it off the prelims of a Fight Night if he loses.
