Mirko Cro Cop Still Coping With Loss to Junior Dos Santos, Will Finish UFC Contract

This Fan Post was promoted to the front page by Nick Thomas.

In an interview with Nokaut.com (translated by Fighters Only), Mirko Cro Cop talked about coping with his devastating loss to Junior Dos Santos:

"I was very, very disturbed after the loss to Dos Santos. I was in such a state that I wished to hang myself in my hotel room so I would be gone. Three losses in my last seven fights is nothing but a disaster to me. That’s a terrible score and I’m not happy about it"

"I already know some things that I did wrong both in the fight and in the preparation for the fight, but there are many questions that remain to be answered. I am seriously thinking about hiring a psychiatrist to help me out. I have already made some calls about it."

While Mirko has had problems with getting more focused and motivated to fight, he says that he won't stop fighting just yet:

"If someone offered me millions of dollars to quit my career right now I would not accept it. [Fighting] is my life and I don’t know any other way to live... I will make some changes in my training, because I wish to fight twice more in the UFC. I am a fighter, and I will find the motivation and strength I need"
