This is for all of those morons who say cro cop has fallen off the horse: He just got back on that bitch. Thanks Bruno!

Anyone who picked Barry to win must lick their own taint, NOW!â™

fight of the night…good for cro cop…but not sure why barry didn’t attack after landing the second punch in 1st round…might have been different outcome.

Savage Says, in 6-13-2010 at 01:45:11 from    

This proves he can still stand with anybody in the division, he can also still take a punch

sins4given Says, in 6-13-2010 at 01:46:04 from    

fight of the night…great for cro cop…but not sure why barry didn’t attack after knocking him down second time in 1st round… Cro cop seemed dazed for a moment…maybe too much respect or big fight jitters…might have ended differently

Venomous Says, in 6-13-2010 at 01:46:52 from    

Damn, I bet Barry is kicking himself for letting Mirko recover after getting hit with those rights. Oh well, Long Live CRO COP!

BX Representer Says, in 6-13-2010 at 01:51:21 from    

Pat Barry has the stand up skills to compete in the UFC but he doesn’t have the dedication or killer instinct. He could and should have tried to finish Cro Cop in the 1st. He didn’t and when he gassed Mirko picked him apart. Good to see Cro Cop get a win.

Irootoko Says, in 6-13-2010 at 01:59:00 from    

The most disappointing fight in a long time. Of course we are going to here some Cro Cop fan talking like he is the man now because he choked out barry without using his hooks. this was far from impressive for both fighters.

pope Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:07:18 from    

i think i just jizzed my pants. cro cop needed this real bad and he is a legend. It seems mirko has gotten his training in order…he will never be champ but he still will put on a hell of a fight.

Beutse Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:09:27 from    

His eye look seriously injured

great fight

Invectrum Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:15:04 from    

I thought Pat Barry was going to destroy Mirko…
I’m really impressed with that fight, after a few disappointments in the last few cards, I’m glad to see some stand up and knockouts.

justafan Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:17:07 from    

hell yeah!! fckn Mirko looked awesome even when he went down.

Invectrum Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:19:07 from    

@BX Representer I dont think theres anything wrong with his killer instinct i think its his ego, being cocky and letting him up to try knock him out cold with the right hand, he was over confident. Atleast he learned his lesson.

JusMe Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:19:23 from    

Yeah…true enough, Barry must learn the difference between respect and competition if he ever wants to elevate in the rankings. I agree with anyone that thinks he lacked the “killer” instinct you need to beat a beast like Cro Cop or anybody else that “came there to kick ass!” I couldn’t believe he didn’t get after him on the first knockdown, but the “second…” well…he “paid the price” for his lack of whatever it was or is. He won’t be around long if he does that again. That “why can’t we be enemies and friends…at the SAME time,” doesn’t work in the Big Show. Damn, Cro Cop “might” have had a very hard day were only one “vicious” right hand to smash his highly damaged mug against the canvas. You see what Cro Cop did when Barry gave “him” the chance to finish him…”lights out, nights’ out!” They’ll both be back, but Barry didn’t learn his lesson when he wanted to touch gloves in his victory that propelled him from literally almost living “outdoors” to the “top floor” of the UFC. Third time WON’T be a charm for him…he should just ask Loiseau (sp?). Cro Cop’s “far” from old or done!

Shinshoryu Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:21:37 from    

I’m very happy for the great performance and the big win for Cro Cop. But I gotta keep it real. I really dig how much respect both fighters had for each other during the bout. I honestly feel that Pat Barry gave Mirko too much respect and in the end it cost him.

twoface Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:29:56 from    

Bx no doubt.pat let it slip away.

Mao Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:32:00 from    

awesome fight! glad cro cop looked good in this fight, even though he got caught those two times..

straightAhead Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:53:02 from    

CroCop should retire. He was outstriked in the 1st and admitted getting dazed and was seeing double after that 2nd knock down. If Barry would have attacked at that time it would have been over. Barry lost the second due to having no ground game and gassed in the 3rd.

This was not a good Cro Cop showing. I am a fan of his but his days of competing well vs top tier fighters are over. He should hang up the gloves on this win and never look back.

sawbuck Says, in 6-13-2010 at 02:54:30 from    

barry has a lot of heart and power, but his lack of skills in the clinch and on the ground are going to put bullseyes on him. cro cop dominated him on the cage with punches and knees to the legs, took away his standup then finished him on the ground. barry also seemed gassed (or was it just the leg punches), and anyone looking to make a name in the ufc needs off-the-charts cardio.

as a kickboxer, barry was 18-6, so he is not unbeatable on his feet, either. i like the guy, he’s got a great story and real talent, but he’s gonna need some real work to make it up the ufc ladder.

Kella Says, in 6-13-2010 at 03:02:56 from    

Bruno, you’re simply amazing. Thank you!

paalle Says, in 6-13-2010 at 03:39:09 from    

man, it was good to see cro cop win again…. War cro cop.
Thanx Bruno. You are the man :)

Chechão Says, in 6-13-2010 at 04:08:57 from    

Crocop did a great fight but i think he could retire after this win!!! because the opponent has no ground game and didn´t knock him out when he could… i love Crocop and would be great get a retirement after a good fight and a win

joejoe Says, in 6-13-2010 at 05:35:33 from    

agreed with straightahead
i have to see more of cro cop to say if he should retire
but im soooooooooo happy he pulled this one off

natedog Says, in 6-13-2010 at 06:03:51 from    

awesome fight, mirko can take the knocks still, might teach pat a couple of lessons

vergil Says, in 6-13-2010 at 07:06:48 from    

the reason pat let crocop stand up was because he felt he’d have a better chance of knocking him out from the feet. mirko is 10 times better on the ground and pat knew that. sides, crocop said he was dazed for a couple of seconds but he didn’t look dazed and got up quickly. pat didn’t know crocop had double vision for a couple seconds. if i were pat, i’d do the same thing, i wouldn’t risk getting sucked into the ground game like that. and pat did try to ko mirko. the shots he threw had bad intentions written all over them.

this is to all the people who said mirko is washed out. seems like this really is his last fight in ufc and maybe in the whole career but he showed he can still fight like a beast! he won the second round and absolutely dominated in the third round!


enkilis Says, in 6-13-2010 at 07:14:40 from    

I love hearing all the idiots that dont fight bullshit about someone getting rocked by a punch, WTF do you think this is? People need to realize these fights are 2 skilled fighters going at it ANYONE of these guys in middle weight up can KO anyone else if they just graze the chin right. its rediculous hearing all these morons that have never been in a fight say omg he got knocked out or he got rocked by that punch, no s*** you dumbass!

Any of these fighters have the ability to KO, just look at the Duffy fight if this doesnt make sence to your imature non experienced mind, give these guys respect win or lose, they come to fight and normally put it all out there, I was very irritated by Rogans Bs about Liddel, that was the best looking Liddel we have seen in years and these idiots say ” o I hope he retires” after he was dominateing and got caught by 1 f****** punch, people are just idiots!!

Idiots with ZERO fight experience see a guy take a couple losses / Kos and say , hes washed up or should retire, its f****** pathetic man WTF learn how to fight before you open your mouth!!! Show some respect to guys that you arnt worth of holding there jock strap!!

The Stank Says, in 6-13-2010 at 08:21:52 from    

All you are chair quarterbacks lol! Barry is a great fighter and doesnt need to learn much of anything. Cro Cop brought a fight and came out on top. Barry will beat most light heavyweights in the UFC.

Somebl0ke Says, in 6-13-2010 at 09:04:40 from    

Barry snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Great fight but too much respect given. Good for Mirko but he must realise that he isn’t going to get the space to recover with any of the upper tier heavyweights.

Barry is a game fighter and I like watching him strike but at least get some grappling defence and for f**k sake stop relying on one strike power and throw a combo!

riba27 Says, in 6-13-2010 at 09:27:27 from    

I will always support Pat Barry. He is hero.

Twana Says, in 6-13-2010 at 09:51:11 from    

Still Crop-cop will never be the same aggressive quick Crop-cop he was long time ago….I think it is better for him to stop fighting or this could be his last lucky win of his life.

Gt03champp Says, in 6-13-2010 at 10:02:12 from    

last night my friend made a stupid comment and said “Berry doesn’t even belong in the same ring as Cro Cop” so we got in to a fist fight at the bar.

BigPuffyBrown NippleTweaker (AKA Rashad) Says, in 6-13-2010 at 10:02:57 from    

@ straightAhead…why do you think CroCop should retire? Because he is older or just doesn’t have the ability to compete for the belt anymore? I do agree CroCop is not as sharp as he used to be and realistically only has a punchers chance of ever being “The Champ” again, but I think alot of fans try and retire guys way to early around here. Franklin will never be champ again, maybe he should retire as well…Couture, Mire, BigNog and on and on. The only point I am trying to make is CroCop can still be competitive and exciting to watch. I feel if you are really a fan of the sport you can appreciate watching alot of match ups with older fighters, like CroCop and Franklin even though they may never be in the top five again. Sure nobody wants to have their last fight be a loss but if you love to compete at something and can still do it at a high level then win, lose, or draw is still A-OK in my book. UFC does a pretty good job of weeding out the fighters who don’t need to be in there anymore : )

Bas Ruten Says, in 6-13-2010 at 11:14:48 from    

CRO COP vs RANDY COUTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ImportMafia Says, in 6-13-2010 at 11:28:31 from    

Thank you, thank you!.. I called this fight, along with 3 other voters I think on the poll.. CroCop by Sub!

leon Says, in 6-13-2010 at 11:33:27 from    

Damn Mirko looked good in this fight! I love it…!!! :))

Svaka čast majstore!!! :)

Hatchetman Says, in 6-13-2010 at 11:34:20 from    

I think
barry was starstruck and too much respect was given for a mma fight.

THE HEADBUSTER Says, in 6-13-2010 at 11:48:29 from    

@ BigPuffyBrown Nipple Tweaker- Very well put sir, that just what I was thinking…. Great name BTW..

PitfighterZ Says, in 6-13-2010 at 12:19:18 from    

Excellent fight! I don’t think any of them held back out of respect, on the contrary, because they respected each other they went for the kill. Barry knew that going after Cro Cop on the ground was a bad idea. I think the fight would have been over sooner with the same result if he had tried.
The difference in this fight from previous Cro Cop’s fights was that he seemed much more comfortable letting his strikes go and much smarter using the cage to his advantage.

trsix Says, in 6-13-2010 at 14:23:12 from    

The old Cro Cop would of really brutalized him. Great fight though.

straightAhead Says, in 6-13-2010 at 15:13:10 from    

@BigPuff… (Rashad)

You sited some good points. My suggestion that he should retire is more emotional than anything else. As I said, I am a fan of his and hate to see him lose and get dominated by the newer HWs. Its frustrating because i dont think he uses his kicks effectively enough, for example: He should throw more leg kicks as a way to set up a high kick, but he rarely does that. He did add some variation to his kicks this past fight but he really didnt set them up. He just kind of threw them out there.

Anyway, he is one of the all time grates even though his ground game offensively is generally lacking (yes, i know he subbed Barry but Barry is below average on the ground).

BigPuffyBrown NippleTweaker (AKA Rashad) Says, in 6-13-2010 at 17:45:16 from    

@ straightAhead…I totally agree with you about being frustrated. CroCops UFC career has been a bit frustrating to watch sometimes because the point you made about him not using his kicks effectively and frankly he looked a little out matched in a few of his fights but I personally would hate to see him hang up the gloves and retire after this one. He has a few more fights left in him…as long as the UFC does not feed him to the wrong guy. I am sure the UFC will be pretty selective with who they match him up with since he is a big draw for the company. $$$$$$$COW$$$$$$$

fletchman87 Says, in 6-13-2010 at 17:56:34 from    

Cro Cop looked good but not top level quality.Alot of this result was pure experience and thats one thing you can’t take away from mirko he has fault the best in the world for years now.barry needs to realize this isnt kickboxing,he isnt invincable,and he needs to developed a more balanced style.nothing wrong stand and stick but you should capitolize on any openeing you get.he is so talented but he needs to find a new camp i think.that trainer he has is a fool and looks like an extra on the andy griffith show.im sure he knows kickboxing but if i had a fight with a huge name i wouldnt take just freddie roach to camp with me.

Durka Says, in 6-13-2010 at 17:58:33 from    

I am highly unimpressed with this cro cop victory. Cro Cop only started to get on top once barry was gassed. Cro Cop’s ground game still looked average Barry’s simply looked worse. I would like to see Cro Cop get a rematch with Gonzaga or mayb a Heath Hearring. someone in the middle tier of the hw division that can test him in all areas before im convinced hes still able to seriously compete…

chiroguy Says, in 6-13-2010 at 18:00:59 from    

Kudos to Cro Cop…his face was busted up in the first and he came out on top. He looked more like his old self in this fight. He let his hands and feet go more in this fight than we have seen from him lately. Pat better learn some ground skills if he wants to be relevant in the UFC. Choked out by a rear naked with no hooks in…c’mon!

Murell Says, in 6-13-2010 at 18:51:59 from    

Cro Cop will never be champ in the U.F.C!

dk Says, in 6-13-2010 at 19:50:36 from    

great fight, i’m so happy for cro cop.

barry definitely wasted his chance to finish it in the first round though.

scruffmuppet Says, in 6-13-2010 at 21:24:00 from    

Barry looks as though he really wants to be a stage performer and someone should tell him about the WWE.

Barry is “wasting his potential.”

it was fun as a fan, but just plain stupid if you’re pat barry. Mirko looked good.

j_satan_666 Says, in 6-13-2010 at 21:29:16 from

poopiestick Says, in 6-14-2010 at 10:38:35 from    

Well done Mirko!

bla Says, in 6-14-2010 at 11:17:36 from    

i dont see how that was a good performance at all..it looked like barry just gave the fight to cro cop

No workie:(

Sharko Says, in 8-18-2010 at 08:27:07 from    

Yes cc is 35 years old !

But it’s interesting here to read so many frustrated guys by this fight.

Nobody here has ever entered this octagon and nobody is in the head of any fighters.

Except one or two post, I’ve never read so much s*** in my whole live…

Barry has a real opportunity to be a UFC champ
Lack of experience!
CC we know, maybe never a champ but already a Legend, …

I ask you silly guys to take a right hand like he (CC) does (even the first which was weaker) and stand up in the following second…

It’s easy in front of the TV screen !!!
