I'M GUESSING THIS IS A LINK

Mirko broke his rib in the 1st round of his disappointing loss vs Cheick Kongo. It makes sense, seeing as how he dominated that round and performanced poorly after. He has a message for his fans.

I thought thats what was up. Kongo laced him with at least three solid body kicks and he was on the retreat after the first round, which doesn't make sense considering he was winning the fight in the first. Hopefully he'll heal up and bounce back. He might be getting older, but I bet hes got a few more good fights in him.

Hell, Cro-cop vs. Herring might make for a cool rematch, as they're both coming off loses.

I agree bro. I thought he has something wrong too, he was looking at it during the fight almost as if he knew it was broken (same way Rampage did after Shogun knee'd it in)...I also wouldn't mind seeing him get a rematch with Nog, Nog didn't look impressive IMO in his UFC debut and looked out of shape.

I like that rematch for both fighters.

Yes Herring is the logical choice for Cro Cops next fight. To bad he broke his rib, I feel bad for the guy, Hopefully that was the main reason he lost.

If it's the last fight of his career let him have a chance to avenge his loss vs Nog, I think he'd win that fight. Herring is a can, CC demolished him in PRIDE, the fight makes no sense.

Actually CC vs Herring does make sense, and since when did Herring become can? I understand he is not the fighter he used to be, but either is Cro Cop and there is nothing wrong about that.

Fighters dont stay dominant for their whole life, the new Cro Cop is fine, he just isnt the killing machine he once was and I am ok with that. A fight against Herring should result in a KO for someone and be an entertaining fight for the fans.

CC has had three of his five fights already...if he decides to retire after his fifth fight, maybe they will let him fight Nog one more time so he can try and avenge that loss.

Not at all. Penn hurt himself. Kongo caused the damage to Cro Cop.
