It wasn’t the dramatic finish we saw in the Gonzaga rematch, but Cro Cop notched his seventh rematch victory. Who’s next?
Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipović is the first fighter who I became a fan of, and it would be disingenuous to present this as anything unbiased cartoonery. I couldn’t even watch the Gonzaga rematch live and had to check the results before checking the replay. His traps appear unnaturally robust and his movements are more rusty robot than peak performance, but to feel like a fan again is a rare and valuable moment for every jaded fight fan.
Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow. Chris.
P.S. who’s next? Mir? Fedor? Schaub?
