As well as it should be. I was a little heart broken when Schaub finished him. Mirko has to know that he is done as well. Father time is a bi***.

Mirkos highlight reel in the UFC has been being knocked out & his body folding violently. His leg twisted again & he landed on it & his face ...again.

Cro cop was already on his way out after barley pulling off the win over Pat Barry he's just getting to old for these young up and coming guy's. Maybe we will see him in Strikeforce now. Brendan called it , he said he would retire the legend.

I give CC props for doing well last night,he put up a good fight but I wasn't too surprised when he got floored and am not too surprised Dana says he's done in UFC. either.

I was soo hoping he was going to be able to pull it off, I thought that Brenden was a perfect opportunity too.....the guy has been KOed by Roy Nelson and CC still hits real hard, the poor guy just can't get the shots off in time before getting hit anymore.

Cro Cop may have been on his way to winning a decision before getting KO'd...or at the very least a draw.

why isnt Dana pitting Cro Cop vs Big Nog on the Rio card

if cro cop doesn't wanna go to lhw he should retire, he probably was the better fighter but schaub had too much weight on him

Can't blame Dana. though to be fair to CC,man the guy was fighting a lot of up and comers and I would have liked to have seen a few legend fights with him before his time in the UFC was up.

like everyone else, knowing that cro crop is older and past his prime is sad. I was in middle school i think, when i first heard of him and his left kick hahah. Two or three years later he fought in pride and his name spread through mma. Its sad to see him not on the top tier anymore, but all good things find an end. In my opinion he has had 4 phenominal careers. He was a high level tacticion, probably equivelant to a new Navy Seal or a Recon Marine, both hardcore. Then he was a word-class kickboxer. Then a top 5 HW in MMA. On top of that, parlament member. That guy has achieve more in his life than most people could dream of.... 4 times over. haha. I have nothing but respect for that guy. Sad to see him leave the top echelon.

Yeah, because that's exactly what Dana posted on Twitter, right?

The guy (legend or not) is 3-5 in the UFC and has basically looked like sh*t in 90% of his octagon minutes. Don't feed me this line of BS about Dana trying to force someone in to retirement.

I agree we should have seen Cro Cop vs Nogueira in the UFC long ago.
