One of the storylines that some of the major MMA media have been focusing on in the aftermath of UFC 110 has been the poor performance that Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic displayed in his beatdown of Anthony Perosh, a fellow Croatian fighter who took the fight on short notice.

I don't think he can really throw a head kick any more due to his ankles.

That's sad.

You guys are crazy.

I believe Cro Cop held back alot.. Looks like he didnt want to brutalize a guy that took a fight on 2 days notice. He knew it was a W for him from the get-go.

You guys will see once he faces a legit opponent in Rothwell

Did you watch his last fight ? He threw a head kick 30 seconds into the first round.

I don't see what you guys are talking about, CC was moving forward the entire time trying to engage but Perosh didn't want any part of it....he tried for a few sluggish takedowns that CC easily shrugged off and put Perosh on his back.

What a lot of people don't realize is how hard it is to strike inside an octagon as opposed to a ring. An octagon you can constantly circle away from certain strikes, where as a ring you can get caught in the corner with no where to go. Perosh was circling away from that left leg the entire fight, I thought CC did what he had to do to win the fight and I thought it should have been stopped the first time b/c of the cut.

The Perosh fight or the one before that?

Because I did see the 110 fight against Perosh and didn't see any head kicks. One mid kick and a lot of punches and sprawls.

in the perosh fight he threw one that glanced over the top of the hippos head very early in the fight.

i disagree totally with all the anti-cro cop stuff goin on here. granted the perosh fight was pretty much a given, i think mirkos hands looked much crisper and more purposeful than his last 2 fights

i do feel blue balled by him for lack of death head kicks recently, but that doesnt mean he has to do that...after he had a few slips on teh ufc mat while throwing kicks, hes been a bit more timid..i wonder if pride/k-1 mats have better grip?
