Just saw the guy's highlight video off www.sherdog.com and this guy just doesn't kick your ass....he rapes your soul. He's one helluva badass.

defintely one of the best stand up fighters out there. if his ground game improves he'd be a force to be reckoned with!

are you serious? Stop watching that $4 an hour UFC crap and check out Pride. Better rules, better fighters, more money....equals better fights.

CroCop is good standing but as an all around fighter he is seriosuly lacking.
They are warming him back up by fighting cans (except Alexander).

Mirko was very hesitant to fight in MMA rules...but Pride saw great potential in him mainly as a crowd-attracting fighter......so they did set him up with easy fights and slowly worked him up....he has however faught some very legit fighters and beat them like Igor, sakuraba, herring, .... he's impressive for someone with very little ground work.....other K-1 fighters that thought they could walk into pride and do what mirko did failed badly....Its funny how when mirko loses a fight he needs to fight a tomato can right after to lift his self esteem.

PLease don't tell em you truly believe Saku was a "legit" fight for him as far as Saku chances?
Saku was only outweighed by 35lbs.

Mirko's ground game isn't too bad, he's just plain more of a striker than a grappler
taking into fact that he's probably the best kickboxer in MMA right now, Chuck Liddell vs Crocop would be a good matchup

Mirko's ground game is non-existant, he knows how to lock his legs and hold onto your arms and thats it. Watch him, he freaks.

To bad cro-cop isnt doing any k-1 competitions nowdays, he was by far the most exciting fighter to watch.
