Crocop looking less scared

I do not think "crocop is back", but I was very happy to see him eat a big shot and pop right back up and keep moving forward. I think we can all agree crocop has looked like he is fighting scared since gonzaga ko'd him, but last night was different. Although I know we will never see crocop hold the belt again, it is great to see a legend fight more like his old self.

Something changed in crocop, for this fight. I think maybe seeing Barry so giddy over the fight made him remember his younger days and awoke his passion for the sport. I hope he doesn't have to take off too much time for his face.

That's one way to look at it.... I agree.

Showed a lot of heart in that fight.

Mirko always fought scared, even in Pride. Its just he was rarely pressed. When Fedor and Hunt brought the fight to him and werent intimidated Mirko ran to avoid exchanges. I give it to him he could have easily quit last night like that. He didnt really run from Dos Santos either. I gained a ton of respect last night for Mirko. It was Barry who couldnt handle when Mirko took the fight to him to start the second. I was watching it with friends, this one girl knew Barry real well. I told her it was over when Mirko stormed him then landed that huge body kick to start the second. Barry didnt have the killer instinct and let Mirko have a second opportunity.

I think his last two fights he has looked more aggressive.

it helps when you fight a guy who waits for you to get up after he knocks you down and then gives you a hug
