It's over. After 15 years in MMA, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic has officially retired today. His manager was instructed to release all Team Cro Cop members from their duties. Mirko simply said "I have no motivation left and it's time to leave. Thank you all for supporting me."

Everybody pay respects to one of the Top 5 MMA Fighters of all time. His era of dominance and fear in Pride was untouched. Maybe Igor Vov compares in terms of fighters not wanting to fight him.

Bad day for the sport. Good look to Mirko in whatever he decides to do now.

Wish him the best of luck. The good thing about this is Mirko has so many other things going on that his retirement will be permanent.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Great Career Mirko!

i hope this time off makes you realize how much you love fighting.
maybe it will re-ignite the fire that once burned so bright in Pride.

As much as I hate to see him end on this note, I am happy. Happy that I do not have to see him look like he did last Saturday. It just about broke my heart.

To one of the Great, Exciting performers. I salute Mirko for giving combat sports all that he had. Mirko is a legend, a gentleman and was a great entertainer. He deserves to be in the hall of fame with out a doubt in my mind.
