I guess all you guys are hanging off CC's nuts cause this just sounds like and weak play to me......



His manager did it, not him. Read the actual interview.




I know who refused the fight....I didnt say anything about CC himself i just said it sounds pretty weak.....



if he wants Cro Cop to get back in the mix, and get his confidence back and his stand up back to the way it was, why would he put him against the best kickboxer in the world as his first match.......dont see how people think this is a bad decision, from the manager or mirko himself i think this a good decision, i'd like to see sylvia being offered to fight schilt and see what he says




If CC doesnt have confidence then he shouldnt be fighting at alllllllll



what are you talking about.....he is trying to build his confidence back up, getting back to the way he was before, and you start from the bottom and work your way up, you dont go from the bottom straight to the top.....its like saying because the dolphins had a bad season, they should just retire their team, and never played again because they are at the bottom thats not how competitive people are, you loose, well than you gotta work harder, and get back into it, Unlike other people who fall down, and they decide to stay there.

We really need that negative props button.

It's just blind hatred coming from an ignaramous. His manager clearly made the decision, not Mirko. I don't see that as a weak play. I see that as a smart managerial decision. This is just as much of a business for these men that stake their livelihood on it as is suiting up for work every day for the average joe.

Lol to this thread. Some people have no idea what it means to be a manager, or a pro athlete. Why would you let your fighter go fight a guy who is the best of the best when your guys hit a huge rough patch? When your a fighter why would you take a fight against a guy your not ready for? Little bit ignorant in here...

If CroCop and team were struttin around saying he is the best and wanting a shot at the best and then turn a fight like this down then I would say that's weak. A career is a career and you have to manage it your own benefit. If he were at the top of his game then Shilt would be a good move but he knows he isn't and the managers are also aware he isn't. I want to see Mirko bounce back more than anything. I believe he can. Shilt would be a stupid move so again I say smart move.

This is a business just like any other. That is what some don't or don't want to realize.

They just want a battle royal.

CC is not ready yet. 1-2 more fights, then let him knock Semmys head off, or his body off from under his head

Good old Schlit has lost 4 of his last seven. If Mirko can't beat a sack like that he shouldn't be ranked anywhere near the top ten.

i dont like the call. bad Managing. Instead of fighting Schilt, he fought some shlub no one knew. Granted Semmy is a great fighter. but i think it would have done more for his "confidence" if he were to lose a war with Schilt (a fight i would pick him to win) than bashing a can for about a minute. CC has been a favorite of mine for a long time, but his time is now if he want to make a run at any type of MMA " GOLD". He isnt getting any younger at 34

It is true that Shilt wasn't so successful MMA fighter at all, so I do not see why should Mirco or his manager fear him...

Good dec. Woulda been stupid to fight Schilt now. His career woulda been done after losing that one.
