Crocop is back in Croatia and aside from apologizing to the press for his performance (in retrospect this card will be known as UFC 119: We’re Sorry) he also told them what he and Frank Mir were talking about against the cage before he got knocked out. According to Mirko, the conversation went something like this:
CroCop: Let me go, lets go to the centre and fight
Mir: Let’s go to the mat
CroCop: OK – if I’m on top
Mir: We’ll stay in the clinch
Which means the whole thing was not much different from Koscheck / Daley’s “Get up and let’s fight” exchange. Crocop has a habit of chit-chatting with his opponents in the cage – most recently he did it with Pat Barry too. Personally I’m more of a fists do the talking type guy, but let’s not blow this out of proportion. Some are suggesting a fix and then there’s that sad, sad group of people who take every wonky moment and try to weave it into a reality where MMA is fake. Those people should probably take their medication.
