MMA  > General MMA  > MIRKO CRO COP OUT
March 20, 2011, 02:25 PM
According to Dana, this was his last fight.

I just wanted to say that while it is sad to see him retire like this, I am really happy for his decision to leave.

I salute this warrior and legend! You are one of the greats of the sport!

Thank you for all the good moments! (all but the KTFO on Wandi!!! You broke him!)

Sad way to go, especially since he was winning that fight.

I was hoping Cro Cop would rise to the occasion.
I fell bad for Outlaw. I was hoping he'd either cash in on his bet or see Mirko tune Schaub.

Is it worth an Arlovski vs. Cro Cop retirement match in Strikeforce? That was at least one of them could retire with a win... I know Peachy likes the stipulaton matches...

Outlaw had a bet on Cro Cop? Dam that sucks. I won a cool $220 on Schaub.

Sorry, didn't say that right.
Meant that since Outlaw lost money on the main event, it would have cushioned the blow for him if he got to see Cro Cop go old school on Schaub.

I had a Schaub-Faber-Miller parlay. Baby bet though.

So you don't think he was winning?

He won the second in my opinion, though it was close, and was going to win the third. He was picking Brenden apart in the third and all Brenden could do was shoot wildly. And Mirko was finding his groove and sprawling left and right.

In the third, Schaub had no meaningful offense standing, that is why Mirko was dropping his hands.
