Cro Cop was such a bad ass in Pride
Pride is so surreal to look back upon now, the level of fighters was simply amazing, and Cro Cop was no exception.

This stare down in his first fight with Wanderlei is so epic. Silva tries to maintain his stare but he appears to be cracking. Cro Cop was just full-on. Sorry about the music.








In the rematch, Cro Cop nearly killed Silva, and Wand was never the same fighter again.







On his path to taking on Fedor, he smashed his way through the best in the game, Coleman, Barnett, "Sapp", Fedor's brother, lost to Minotauro and Randelman but avenged the latter, and finally took on Fedor in what is regarded by some as one of the greatest fights in MMA.







His UFC career never really worked for him, although he had some good fights and victories, he claims he was always injured and now he's finally recovered due to surgery and is now in his best shape in years. Too bad he's retiring for good.

I was glad to see him go out on a high note when he won the Rizin Grand Prix, he's now calling out Fedor for one final fight.





I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

the venue has a big effect on the fighter's performance

cro cop looked disgusted when he debuted in UFC with how greasy the venue appeared.

the rules made for the excellent fights

no elbows, soccer kicks, 4 point knees

yellow cards to prevent stalling

you also fight differently in a ring

Crocop vs Fedor is the greatest fight in MMA history. It was like the Tyson - Holyfield of MMA. Antecipated and talked about for years, but postponed due to many setbacks such as Fedor getting injuried and Crocop's fluke losses to Nogueira and Randleman. So much build up, But unlike Tyson/ Evander, not only were both fighters at their absolute peak when they finally collided, but their fight took place int he same card as the greatest LHW tournament ever. God I miss PRIDE so much.

Crocop did much better than expected.

All these guys fought better in Pride. the org and venues energized them to a higher fighting level.

UFC has the atmosphere of a slightly upscale dog fighting arena. Nick said it best when he said he felt like a stripper fighting in UFC but a warrior in Pride.

Both Fedor and Cro Cop seem to do much better in a ring than a cage.

It's shame that Bellator couldn't sign him for their Tournament.
