Joe Rogan appeared on 106.7 FM KROQ “The Roq of the 80’s” to talk about mixed martial arts. He stated:
“If you watch the last UFC, this is something nobody knows, the Mirko Cro Cop fight that was on Spike last week – he got kneed in the balls, he went down and said to “Big” John McCarthy, “I’m too old for this shit.” and Big John said “No man you’re fine, you’re fine.” and he goes, “No I should just quit right now.” He said this while he was down and Big John goes, “If you want to quit just let me know and he said no, no I don’t.” So he had 5 minutes to recover and said he was too old for this.”
Earlier this year Cro Cop stated that he will be retiring when his four fight UFC contract is over. It would suck for us big PRIDE fans to see Cro Cop end his career as a defeated fighter and not the bad ass striker who decimated opponents in PRIDE.
