Only one day after brutal and humiliating KO by Gabriel Gonzaga in Manchester, Mirko Cro Cop came back to Zagreb. Several of his friends, members of the special forces, were waiting for him at the airport. As soon as he got out of the terminal, walking with a limp, reporters gathered around him to hear his opinion on last night's fight, the fifth loss of Mirko's career.
Although just 10 hours passed from the KO, Mirko was calm and collected, and if it wasn't for the visible limp, you could never guess it was the same man who lied unconscious last night in the UFC cage.
"The fight went the same way I fought it, I didn't deserve any better", analyzed Mirko and continued: "That's seems to be the cross I'm carrying, I fall down every once in a while, I don't know why. I've been two times through such crisis, against Randleman and I came back, against Fedor and I came back. I'll come back after this again. It's part of my carrer, so I should handle it."
It didn't take long since last night's defeat for speculations to arise whether Gonzaga's hick-kick ended Mirko's career aswell. But to our question whether he'll continue fighting after this Cro Cop answered: "Of, course, I will fullfil the contract, I have 4 more fights to go."
After this short statement Mirko entered his car. Before anything, it's time to recover, and after that he'll start thinking about his next opponent.

Cro Cop is the boy, what a warrior. He has taken lost fights that he clearly should have won before, and he will be back crushing skulls again.

I see what he's saying bout the loss and comebacks. He is a great striker. He needs to cross train more and realise that the ufc has the heavyweights, dont take no one lightly.

Hey, he's a fighter, he'll be back !! 4 fights left on his contract !!

It's not the first time this has happend. He'll bounce back from it.

kerazzle » Posted 2/17/07 4:21:00PM

yea he'll be back. He was taken completely off-guard, he never thought Gonzaga could throw a highkick. He actually lowered his hands to block his body when gabe threw that kick. Mirko will be back. He is top of the food chain an d always comes back strong.

Of course he'll be back, and he will have more great matches. I like how he just said it straight up "sometimes I fall down. I don't know why" that's how his career goes. This time he didn't look "right". He has said before that his own biggest problem is when he doesn't move forward enough and tries to be defensive. He was flatfooted (compared to his normal fights), he wasn't moving like he normally does. Sometimes a guy can step in and he almost can't win before the bell starts, sometimes a guy can't lose (that's what Barnett said about cc the finals owgp night). I personally think all these upsets just make things more interesting. Who knows maybe we all just underestimated GG. Randy should give us a better idea.
