mirko cro cop

Once consider top MMA heavyweight, Mirko Cro Cop told Fighters Only Magazine:

“I believe that during 2009 I will fight three more times for Dream, then I hope for a farewell fight in the UFC.”

Cro Cop is expected to have knee surgery in a couple of weeks, which could take him out of training for three months. Then some fights for DREAM, and a possible UFC sendoff sometime in late 2009.

“I’m not in the years when you can create a long-term plan… today my health is my priority.”

Comments

  1. seems a low key end to a good career… doesn't seem that long ago that he was the number 1 Pride FC wrecking machine… who's he gonna fight in the UFC – Chuck Liddell at a catch weight around 220 would be great!

  2. Shogun of Harlem says:

    sad ending to a great fighter. i would like to see him retire on top not like this.

  3. dane drebin says:

    hopefully the ufc takes him up on his offer and gives him someone good to fight. i bet if mirko wins all of those fights he will change his mind and stay a little longer.

  4. a rematch with gonzaga or kongo would be excellent.

  5. dane drebin says:

    eh id rather see him fight a real name like randy, chuck, mir, or even shogun

  6. let him have a rematch with nog, they both seem to be slowing down.

  7. cro cop would eat chuck alive if dana had the balls to make the match…but seeing chuck lose makes him wet the bed!!!

  8. yeah a send off vs nog would be good, i would like to see cro cop vs antoni hardonk

  9. JHON CARDENAS says:

    MIRKO PARA MI SE RETIRARA COMO LOS GRANDES COMO FUE ANDY HUG YA LO VERAN

  10. RUBEN ESCOBAR says:

    PARA MI ES LA MEJOR PATADA DEL MUNDO QUE NADIE LE VA A IGUALAR,QUE ES UNA TRISTESA QUE SE RETIRE SIN HABER GANADO A CACHETON OSEA FEDOR EMELIANENKO.
