Cro Cop Wanted to Fight On: "I Knew My Time Would Come"
"Alaister was ahead on points, however its a 15 minute fight and i knew my time would come" said Mirko
Mirko wanted to continue to fight, however the ringside doctor prevented him from continuing.
"I'm angry it ended this way, it seemed as if he was the dominant one, however i wasn't in trouble for a second and was waiting for my opportunities. I prepared very well because i thought the match could last a while. I thought i would knock him down in the end"
His manager Zvonimir Lučić confirmed that he wanted to continue the fight however the ringside officials prevented it as a precaution.
His manager stated that the injury is not a serious one. He doesn't know when the rematch will take place however Mirko's team want one as soon as possible.
It is thought that Dream could host an event in Korea, before the NYE event.
One would think if its economically feasible putting on a show in Korea could be very entertaining. There is all sorts of Japan vs. Korea rivalry going on in MMA and the ever-villainous Yoshihiro Akiyama (or is it Choi Sung-Ho?) would be an interesting addition to the card.
As for CroCop, I'll reserve judgment until I watch the fight, but color me skeptical about what he has left. Like many other fighters, CroCop is very susceptible to the psychological influence of the fears, apprehensions and anxieties created by the mind. Everyone is susceptible to that sort of pressure, but the way in which it affects performance seems particularly acute with him. Unless he is able to bully and cause others to play apprehensive or restrained, he doesn't seem nearly as dangerous. He works best when he waits patiently to land his shot as his opponent trepidaciously tries to avoid damage. If you take the fight to him, he seems far less of a threat. But I do need to watch the fight.
