Mirko Cro Cop Wants To Finish Out His UFC Contract

New, 6 comments


"I was very, very disturbed after the loss to Dos Santos. I was in such a state that I wished to hang myself in my hotel room so I would be gone. Three losses in my last seven fights is nothing but a disaster to me. That’s a terrible score and I’m not happy about it"

"I already know some things that I did wrong both in the fight and in the preparation for the fight, but there are many questions that remain to be answered. I am seriously thinking about hiring a psychiatrist to help me out. I have already made some calls about it."

Here he communicates that he would like to finish out his UFC contract:

"If someone offered me millions of dollars to quit my career right now I would not accept it. [Fighting] is my life and I don’t know any other way to live... I will make some changes in my training, because I wish to fight twice more in the UFC. I am a fighter, and I will find the motivation and strength I need"

I gave Mirko credit for fighting someone like Junior dos Santos and he did hang in there even though he was getting bullied around.  I'm not sure I want to see him keep fighting, but I do respect him for wanting to honor the contract that he signed.  Would you like to see Mirko back in the cage?
