crocop needs to retire.

seriously.

its getting sad to watch.

 

Dana White: Following UFC 128 loss, Mirko "Cro Cop" headed to retirement

NEWARK, N.J. – Following back-to-back losses and his steady descent in the world heavyweight rankings, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic (27-9-2 MMA, 4-5 UFC) apparently is headed into retirement.

 

And following Filipovic's loss to Brendan Schaub (8-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at Saturday's UFC 128 event, UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) he doesn't expect much push back from the fighter.

 

"I don't think I'd have an argument from 'Cro Cop,'" he said.

 

In a pay-per-view main-card bout at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., Schaub delivered the former PRIDE great a violent third-round knockout defeat. Schaub overpowered Filipovic for most of the fight and then floored him with a right hook to the side of the head in the final few minutes of the fight.

 

Filipovic also suffered a knockout loss in his previous bout, which came at UFC 119 to Frank Mir.

 

White said he'll always respect what the 36-year-old Croatian has accomplished in the sport. But he doesn't expect Filipovic back in the cage.

 

"I was talking tonight about how tough Mirko 'Cro Cop' is," White said. "At his age and with the wars he's been in, to see how he gets in there with these heavyweights now that are bigger, stronger and younger than he is – and he still holds his own – it's a testament to what a great fighter that guy was in his prime.

 

"I have all respect for Mirko 'Cro Cop,' but yeah, I'd have to say tonight is probably the last time we'll see 'Cro Cop' fight again."

 

White, though, said he hadn't talked to Filipovic before or after the fight about future plans. But based on his assessment, it's clear it's likely not the fighter's decision to make whether he returns to the UFC.

 

Filipovic went 2-3 in his most recent UFC stint and 1-2 in a heavily anticipated first stint back in 2007. The 2006 PRIDE open-weight grand-prix winner failed to capture the form that led him to a top world-heavyweight ranking and past victories over the likes of Wanderlei Silva, Josh Barnett, Aleksander Emelianenko and Mark Coleman.

 

Additionally, while once known for an electric striking game and head-kick knockouts, his recent bouts lacked that pizazz. In fact, after back-to-back losses to Gabriel Gonzaga and Cheick Kongo in 2007, he briefly left the UFC and fought in Japan before rejoining the UFC for his latest (and apparently final) stint.

that wouldnt even be worth it haha

 

 

on a side note..

Silva vs. St-Pierre, Silva vs. Jones "super fights" not currently on UFC's radar

 

NEWARK, N.J. – With newly crowned UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones' dominating UFC 128 win over ex-champ Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, the fantasy matchmakers already are at work.

 

And though Jones hasn't made a single title defense, fans are already anticipating a slew of matchups, including one with middleweight champ and fellow pound-for-pound-rankings darling Anderson Silva.

 

But UFC president Dana White said that fight currently is no more likely than Silva vs. welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre.

 

Up until Jones' victory at Saturday's UFC 128 event in Newark N.J., which made the 23-year-old the youngest titleholder in UFC history, the buzz was over a possible St-Pierre vs. Silva "super fight." St-Pierre – largely due to the constant questions and even encouragement from White – said he'd need to vacate his welterweight belt, pack on pounds, and move to middleweight for good if he fights Silva.

 

All that apparently is standing in the way is St-Pierre's upcoming UFC 129 opponent: former Strikeforce and EliteXC champion Jake Shields.

 

But White said St-Pierre vs. Silva may not be as close as we originally thought.

 

"This fight isn't happening," White said. "It's not a fight yet. It's still a big fantasy fight. There are still things that need to happen in the meantime before we sit down and discuss where this fight would be, what weight it would be at, how it would work. It's all just fantasy yet.

 

"I literally have not talked to Georges St-Pierre or Anderson Silva about this fight."

 

The same obviously goes for Jones vs. Silva. White admitted numerous people stopped him on the way to the post-UFC 128 press conference to ask about Jones vs. Silva.

 

"With what I saw tonight, [Jones] looks a mile ahead of everyone else," White said. "In my opinion, not only is he the No. 1 light heavyweight in the world, he shot up the pound-for-pound (rankings) as well."

 

But that doesn't mean he's ready to throw him into a fight with Silva just yet.

 

Besides, Silva really has no interest to fight at light heavyweight, White said. He only did so before (in wins over James Irvin and Forrest Griffin) because he largely had cleaned out the division and was pushed by White.

 

"Anderson Silva has made it very clear to me that he doesn't want to fight at 205 pounds," White said. "That's why originally when I was always talking about him trying to go for another belt at 205 pounds. ... He stuck his big toe in a couple of times because I was pressing the issue. He made it very clear he doesn't want to fight at 205."

 

However, like White and other true MMA fans, he thinks Silva might be lured after what we've seen from Jones, MMA's next big star, in the past couple years.

 

"Who knows?" White said. "Maybe he sees a guy as talented as Jon Jones, and he'll want to try it."
