I heard about this on other MMA sites too Bruno. Not confirmed. It would suck to see him retire like this without announcing it in the North American media post-fight and giving a little speech.

He should retire anyone else would have finished him in the first round instead of hugging and kissing like some bitches

bigsexy Says, in 6-13-2010 at 23:11:59 from    

crocop should retire, the only reason he beat barry is cause he hugged him in the first round and begged him 2 let him go out on top, barry was destroying crocop they after they hugged and cropcop said something 2 him thats when cropcop started dominating, thats what they do in pro wrestling they talk during they match and about what gonna happen next, ufc is very close 2 wwe and gets closer every ppv.

He should get out while he’s still in one piece. Leaving on a high note is the best way to leave.

bigbank, you dont understand mma if you dont understand the respect the two had for each other during that fight. Why do so many people think that mma is about hurting the other person?

noooo! say it isn’t so!

Barry couldn’t finish, he broke his right hand and his foot. His strategy was to use the right hand to beat crocop

if this is true it was an awesome way to go out against barry. Its been an awesome career for cro cop i was nvr really a huge fan of cro cop but i did enjoy his fights everyone of them in his pride days i really do hope the best of him in the future.

“Another good stitch me fired. I felt a pain in the eye, under which I have now, “ham”. The translation was pretty funny

That would have been a great fight for him to retire on. It would have been epic if he announced it in the ring, even if it wasn’t a sure thing at the time.

Also, Saku breaking Zelg’s leg would have also been an epic way for him to retire. I wish he retired after that fight on that note.

could be to help negotiations with the ufc.

Beats going out like Chuck.

I don’t know how anyone can bag on Cro Cop, he’s one of the most entertaining fighters of all time.. Retired or not retired, he’s the man.. Him and Wandy are icons and deserve everyone’s respect for the wars they have been through.. They might get knocked out here and there, but damn do they entertain..

Throne Says, in 6-14-2010 at 02:07:10 from    

Grape….think you nailed it there.

factman Says, in 6-14-2010 at 02:11:43 from    

crocop vs the iceman literally one one mas survives and someone will go to the cemetery

@bigsexy You’re an idiot and you obviously don’t know a thing about sportsmanship and respect. The fact of the matter is that Barry got his hand broken, foot broken, gassed, and TAPPED OUT. End of story.

Dick Cheese Says, in 6-14-2010 at 06:57:55 from    

Good for him if he goes out on top like this. I’ll miss watching him fight, but what a way to end a legendary career.

Big sexy wins the award for dumbest post on this thread.

Savage Says, in 6-14-2010 at 07:31:57 from    

im sure in between them trying to punch each other in the face, the screaming crowd, and the screaming cornermen cro cop had plenty of time to talk to barry and ask him not to dominate him…bigsexy my friend, you are a troll…go away

AussieMMA Says, in 6-14-2010 at 07:56:33 from    

Damn Straight Grape Soda.

jbrisk Says, in 6-14-2010 at 09:19:12 from    

this is all bullshit…….he’s not retiring….after he finally got healed up and put on his most impressive fight in a couple years he wouldnt automatically retire, it just doesnt make sense, someone is just putting out some dumb s***

The Stank Says, in 6-14-2010 at 09:36:43 from    

Retire on top Cro Cop. Your the man…stay the man. Great fight!

sandro s. Says, in 6-14-2010 at 10:00:08 from    

bruno, as a croatian i tell you the croatian press sends crocop in retirement after every fight, dont belive that s*** they are writing , crocop will sign a new contract…

steamer bean Says, in 6-14-2010 at 10:08:18 from    

If his heart isn’t in it anymore he should go ahead and hang em up. Taking out a young up n comer is a good jumping off point.

Beutse Says, in 6-14-2010 at 10:11:00 from    

This is highly speculative but maybe Crocop eye got seriously damaged in that fight. I had that impression because the way it look during the post-fight interview with rogan. But now, he also said he had pain in it and double vision during 10 sec…could it be because it burst?

It would explain why he would want to retire now…I hope I’m wrong!

madona Says, in 6-14-2010 at 12:22:02 from    

Would rather see him fight atleast 2 times, would make tons of money if veryone knew it was his last 2 fights.

PitfighterZ Says, in 6-14-2010 at 12:39:39 from    

Dana said he didn’t want Cro Cop to retire and Cro Cop seemed very excited after the fight.
Even the way Dana talked (I think it was in the interview with Ariel), it seemed like a new contract was almost a done deal.
More than that, getting the bonus may have gotten into Cro Cop’s head. Instead of fighting to be a champion, he could get some exciting fights and get more bonuses, which I hope will happen. Now that he’s in shape, what would another 6-fight contract mean? Money, lots of it. And he could be done with 6 fights in 2 years more or less and, then retire.
As long as he doesn’t face the top 5 contenders, he should do all right.

“Spartan training” ???

BIGSEXY, you are either illiterate or from a foreign country, I HOPE it’s the latter….but either way you sure are a damn RETARD.

Sunfish Hero Says, in 6-14-2010 at 20:16:13 from    

It’s probably for the best. It’s only a matter of a few fights where he ends like poor old Liddel out staying his welcome and becoming a walking bad-end of a highlight reel.

BIGBANK763 Says, in 6-14-2010 at 20:35:11 from    

Ok savage u do know the by product of the very sport u watch is the other person getting hurt in some cases even permenent damage can occur so ur statment that its not about the other person wanting to hurt each other is absurd to put it mildly….o yeah i personaly hope the hurting continues…love the site bruno much respect

aiquileno Says, in 6-14-2010 at 20:47:00 from    

How easy to bush a great fighter like Cro Cop; I would like to see all of those big mouths in the octagon. My respects for Cro Cop and every fighter who do put their actios behind their mouths; they all deserve it.

BigSexy…do us all a favor and drink some cyanide!!!

locos13 Says, in 5-28-2011 at 13:58:34 from
