    Default Cro Cop and Trigg could be cut

    Dana:

    "I'm not saying that I've ever been at the level of a Mirko 'Cro Cop' or any of these guys, but I used to fight," UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "You get to a certain age where you remember what you used to be able to do, and you can see all the openings. You just can't pull the trigger. I think that's where he's at."

    White admitted Filipovic may soon be forced to finish his fighting days against sub-par competition in Japan rather than fighting the world's best heavyweights in the UFC.

    . . . .

    "I think Trigg is one of those guys (like Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipovic)," White said after the conclusion of the UFC 103 post-fight press conference. "These (other) guys are young and explosive. There's just a whole other level of talent out there, man, and that's the way it works. That's the way this business is."

    So, will he give it some thought before terminating the contract?

    "I doubt it," White shrugged. "He got smoked tonight."



    Cro Cop:

    ?This was not the kind of performance the public pay for,? admitted Cro Cop. ?I don?t feel the hunger anymore. I have started playing it safe, I?m not prepared to take risks.?
    ?I?ve been living a military life for 20 years now. Getting up at 6 am and working hard physically until 8 p.m. I want a normal life. I?m entering a cage and thinking about fishing in Privlaka. You can?t win that way. Maybe I should have quit after I won the [PRIDE FC] Open Weight Grand Prix.?

    LOL - as undocumented as Adolf's boxing career on the east side of the wall.

    If Cro Cop gets cut (and I know he may want out) it's hypocrital when you think of Dana's reaction to the report that he was going to Dream after his last fight.

    I think the UFC would keep him, however, if they thought there was any chance that he'd end up fighting Fedor

    Cro Cop hit the nail on the head. He achieved his ultimate goal when he beat Barnett in Japan. He hasn't been the same fighter since.

    I think his endless battle to be respected as a fighter is some variation of penis envy. I'm sure you studied a lot of Freud in Germany (I believe his writings were in German) - do you agree?

    Cro Cop will not be released....yet. Mark my words.
    Trigg was fed to the lion out of spite. He is now gone.

    You might be right as that was a bad matchup for Trigg and "he got smoked" is a pretty rude thing to say the night of someone's KO loss.

    Trigg made a lot of noise when he was cut after losing to GSP, saying the UFC didn't pay him enough to cover training costs and then they cut him with that loss.

    I think they'd love to not use Cro Cop, but they want it to be like Randy stepping down; that he can't fight elsewhere since a rematch with Fedor would create buzz.

    I don't have any reason to doubt Mr. Dana White. I don't follow every move he makes, so I can't possibly know if it's penis envy, or if he's really a hard ass that used to fight. I'll say that he looks like a fighter. He surely has a background for fighting. I don't see what all the fuss is about.
