I'm very sorry Ben had to pull out few days before the fight, but Dana said we might fight on UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi.

I admire Perosh for taking the fight. There were much better fighters there who turned down the fight but I understand them, they didn't have time to prepare.

I'm very sorry I've hurt Perosh. I tried to do the fight with as much consideration for him as I could. I avoided the ground cause i'm 7-8 kg's heavier then him. Even Dana asked me why I didn't finish im but I just couldn't do that to him when he was so bloody.

Mirko says it's possible he will take just a few days to rest and then he probably goes back to training cause he's maybe fight as soon as april.

Mirko also commented his old rival and friend Nog

Nog asked me before the fight what do I think Cain's game plan is gonna be. I told him Cain certainly won't go for his legs. Even his trainer said to me after the match that i guessed the game plan right. I'm sorry it ended that way for Nog, but he entered the fight a bit careless. He held his hands to high and naively enetered in punch exchange and in that kind of situation it's 50:50 and you need some luck.

So all you haters need to shut up!

Cro Cop felt bad for the dude. Dont you think he would of threw a lot more body and leg kicks if he was fighting a legit opponent. Its not hard to see that Mirko was holding back.

I think your right he was holding back but, to be one of the best in this sport there is no room for compassion!!!

Perosh should definitely not fight another striker.

Unless your just trying to see Kimbo get another Win..

I already think Mitrione is a given win.
