On non-financial reasons for parting ways with the UFC: “I was in full training and wanted to compete in March. However, the UFC couldn’t find me an opponent that fast and I didn’t want to stop my preparations and start all over again for a match in May. Besides I was HUNGRY for a fight and nervous (anxious) like a dog…I asked for a rematch with Gonzaga but that was not possible because he lost to Werdum. Then I asked for Kongo but that wasn’t possible either.”

On business practices that will eventually screw him: “Although I didn’t sign any contract [with DREAM] we came to an agreement for 3 fights in March, June and September. I never had written contracts with the Japanese because we have always done business by oral agreement.”

On returning to the UFC: “I’m going to go back to the UFC without a doubt…The date of return depends on a possible fight with Fedor. The fight should take place on 31st December if Fedor accepts. If that fails I’ll be back in the UFC by the end of this year.”

On his “psychological crisis”: “I lost that killer instinct. I lost 5kg (10lb) before the fight with Kongo, I had a hard time wanting to train and on the day of the fight I thought to myself: Why do I even need this, why am I fighting a guy I have never seen before. I was fed up with it all.”

On diplomacy: “I have managed to come to terms with Dana and I’m thankful for his cooperation and understanding.”

I was reading this earlier, I hope he gets his shot at Fedor, I think that fight means the same thing to him as it does to Randy. I think he's on a revenge tour, hope he gets it done.

I am a huge fan of CroCop and want him to get back on the right track. Hopefully CroCop can garner his old attitude.

because Randy is still under contract with t hem so they don't want him to fight anybody, let alone Fedor unless it is in the UFC. CC is no longer obligated to the UFC thus he can fight CC while Randy has a legally binding contract.

do not hear this about Dana but I am sure HDNET will say Dana scared away another one of the games great Bas is cool but the other two are so annoying and stupid I want Diaz to apply a gogoplata to their throats.

To me, Cro Cop is kind of strange. Sometimes i dig what he says and other times I hate him cause he can be a dick. But ya, he hasn't looked like that same dude from pride, I think the Gonzaga fight really f'd with his head.

No Cro Cop's not in the UFC anymore he's signed with Dream for 3 fights, but as he's said he never has written contracts with Japanese companies, just verbal(probably don't want to screw a man who is a Croatian commando), and I think the contract will be more like 4-6 fights.

exactly

yea CC opted out of his contract, Dana was cool about it apparantly and hopefully he will join back with the UFC after he puts together a run in Dream.

Cool, I hope he does get to fight Fedor again. Hopefully, he can beat Fedor and really shut up the naysayers.

CroCop will come to terms with himself and go on a tear in the DREAM organization.

Then CroCop will come back to the UFC and kick some heads in the crowd starting with Gonzaga's

Are you familiar with Pride? Lol they had plenty of match ups that weren't announced until the week of the fight.. They're weird like that.
