dam, good fight .. nelson looked good, i knew this was going to happen .. guttered that cro-cop couldnt bounce back with a win ! but he should have utilized the jab and made some distance, it wouldve opened up more punches and kicks!! but at the end of the day, cro cops chin and stamina is just fading as he gets older !

Pope Says, in 10-29-2011 at 23:39:54 from    

Mirko looked good at first, but lately he fades in the 3rd and gets knocked out. Hes done that in the past 3 fights if I recall correctly. He has no chin or reflexes left to be fighting…retire now. Roy looked like the usual roy….I like him but he will be a gatekeeper for the rest of his career.

Sad to watch. Cro Cops time has come and gone.

Good for Roy though. He did his thing. I think youd have to hit that guy with a brick.

Thank you Mezgec!! ill be buying a whopper with that 10 bucks!!

wcoastassassin Says, in 10-29-2011 at 23:42:07 from    

Good fight, maybe a little early stoppage. Nice to see CroCop giving it his all and some vintage Roy Nelson. Good fight, hope to see them both again.

Scottc Says, in 10-29-2011 at 23:47:15 from    

Good job by Roy “Big Belly” Nelson using his weight to wear down Cro Cop. His mountain man look is hilarious to watch.

123 Says, in 10-29-2011 at 23:47:30 from    

Yeah, it was little early, but I did not want to see Cro Cop knocked out again. Shame to see him and another legend retire tonight. Sad night for MMA…

Hurry man. I saw in Portugese and didn’t know what they were saying. What a fight!

R I P Crocop, til we meet again one day my friend.

Hey its all good Mirko! Good Fight!

walket6678 Says, in 10-29-2011 at 23:57:07 from    

Man, it’s sad to see what has happened to Mirko since PFC.

jchez Says, in 10-29-2011 at 23:59:17 from    

I love cro cop, but Rogan’s commentary was right on the money. If Mirko would have just thrown some right hands, he could have take that fight.

Maximumpain Says, in 10-30-2011 at 00:04:32 from    

FuK! I’m sick of seein the legends lose. Gotta give Fat Bastard props though.

Chemosux Says, in 10-30-2011 at 00:20:25 from    

Really time for cro Cop to go! He’s a legend, but seriously he has no right to be fighting in UFC anymore. He’s now a second tier fighter. His skills have left him a few years ago

rjcowger Says, in 10-30-2011 at 00:20:57 from    

why did cro cop take a dive in the third? it was so obvious, he just fell down and put his hands on his head.

Pope Says, in 10-30-2011 at 00:40:57 from    

@walket6678 Cro Cop didnt work at PF Changs, or are you saying he’s gone downhill since he started eating too much PFC?

mmafan Says, in 10-30-2011 at 00:59:36 from    

I did not like the early stoppage, would have liked to see Nelson whale on Mirko a bit more before ending it.

BLACK Says, in 10-30-2011 at 01:10:07 from    

A LITTLE EARLY MAZ. could have gave a warning for the shots to the back of the head. let them fight. great fight tho….ROY’S CHIN IS IRON AND YOU CAN’T HURT THAT BELLY….WHEN YOU TRY TO BREAK DOWN HIS LEGS, HE TAKES YOU DOWN…AND NOW HIS CARDIO IS GETTING BETTER. HE’S NO JOKE!

jhu Says, in 10-30-2011 at 01:22:02 from    

LOL anyone of you saw that before the fight Nelson was like rubbing his own tit….

baller Says, in 10-30-2011 at 02:58:55 from    

i have been saying it cro cop will do better at lhw. but its ova now nice career.

asdf Says, in 10-30-2011 at 02:59:54 from    

Sad to see Mirko lose like this so frequently. Well, its time to hang em up. Thanks for all the fights you gave us Mirko!

jadda Says, in 10-30-2011 at 03:33:31 from    

Something wrong with Crocops right biceps, seems like it’s ruptured. Too many bruises and injurys over the years, but I always root for Crocop.

ibunn Says, in 10-30-2011 at 13:46:48 from    

nice shots to the back of the head roy! way to go!

hooch1967 Says, in 10-30-2011 at 14:54:11 from    

Miirko looked pretty good. I’ve seen him look worse. He should try and cut to 205.

paul Says, in 10-30-2011 at 15:09:05 from    

Mirko should stop come on, it is time. No for him, he has done alot for MMA. We all know that UFC did not work for Mirko, like it worked in Japan.

JoeDog Says, in 10-30-2011 at 15:26:55 from    

Nelson is impressive. He is really just a light HW with a 40-50 pound belly out there beating guys who are composed of lean muscle who are true HWs. It would seem that he could be deadly at 205.

Tempted Says, in 10-30-2011 at 18:45:43 from    

I love Roy and while I’m glad he won I am going to miss seeing CroCop in there. He was just an animal when he was fighting the Pride heavyweights. While we all see how Pride fighters have failed in the UFC at least we get some awesome knockout replays from the days in Japan. I did at first feel the fight was stopped early but CroCop didn’t protest and wasn’t upset so I guess it was called right.

murell Says, in 10-30-2011 at 19:44:37 from    

The power of the Beard!

zagor Says, in 10-30-2011 at 19:56:30 from    

Pride fighters have not failed in the UFC because they were not good enough to compete with other fighters who started in UFC. In my opinion it has also something to do with not being able to adapt to new rules and octagon. Besides, most of them are getting rather old, and would probably fail in Pride too (if Pride still existed).

AFan323 Says, in 10-30-2011 at 21:12:14 from    

I gotta say Roy looked WAY better with that weight lost. Honestly he would do really good at 205 and he’d be a big 205er!

Props to Cro Cop for an entertaining and sucessful career been a fan for years and I’m sad to see him go.

But again Roy is looking way better slimmed down.

Pope Says, in 10-30-2011 at 23:07:39 from    

^^^ pride fighters like wandy and cro cop failed because their style involved stalking and cornering people, you can’t do that in the octagon. Rings definitely help with strikers who stalk people, thats why counter strikers are often more successful in the octagon. Some pride fighters came in past their primes as well.

Also btw there is a video of cro cop post fight and he is twitching and spazzing like mad. He always had some sort of tick, but it looks worst then ever. Could you post that video BRUNO? It is very sad, but it shows what fighting for too long can do to you. Hope Cro Cop is ok, the man has been in many epic wars and has taken a lot of damage between boxing, kickboxing, and mma.

Pope Says, in 10-30-2011 at 23:10:54 from    

Off topic, but if Jones fought Rampage in a ring he would not have been able to run away like he did and rampage would have at least rocked him a few times and had a better chance. The octagon has it’s advantages, but I feel like it encourages running away too much.

Tempted Says, in 10-30-2011 at 23:52:38 from    


The problem is Dana let some UFC fighters go over to Pride and they still had a winning record while coping to new rules. Some have had problems with cage vs ropes but most were the same age and size as the UFC guys so older isn’t really an excuse for them. I still love watching Wandy and Rampage fight. I love watching replays of CropCop and Fedor. With less skilled competition they made some great highlights. Hell for that matter I still watch Don Frye replays.

dave Says, in 10-31-2011 at 01:54:45 from    

what I don’t understand is that when Mirko was punching nelson with nelso’s back to the cage why he didn’t use knees???? he could have finish roy right there with few knees to the face! and no jabs at all? he could have kept roy away just with jabs. oh well

Mirko we will Miss you :*( in mma!

Nambo Says, in 10-31-2011 at 03:16:04 from    

Roy’s “squeal like a pig” beard actually makes his belly look a little smaller than usual…..pretty impressive

JoeDog Says, in 11-2-2011 at 11:57:58 from    

Regarding Cro Cops tic: There is a 24 second Youtube video titled “Cro Cop Twitching” that shows what seems to be a pathologic issue. I’m guessing its not a “nervous twitch” and we will see it labeled if media attention follows him into retirment. Only his neurologist knows for sure.
