Getting hit with a left high kick from Mirko Cro Cop must be the same feeling you felt when your idiot friend tripped over the cord of your NES controller and yanked everything out of the socket just as you were about to finish off Dr. Wiley in Mega Man 2 (Don’t act like that hasnt happened to you). Scientists should create an alternative energy car that is powered entirely by the force of Cro Cop’s left high kicks. It would run forever and whenever someone cuts you off, just open up your fuel tank. Future archaeologists are going to find the skeletons of PrideFC contenders and determine they were KOd by a Cro Cop left high kick based on the trauma to their skull. After his Junior Dos Santos UFC 103 loss, Cro Cop decided to train with Muay-Thai legend, Ivan Hypollite. In an interview with a Hungarian Sports News Source, Cro Cop says that for the first time in his career he is finally training to KO his opponents.
“After all this time I realize that you can not prepare well without real camp and an authoritative coach. That’s the biggest mistake in my career. I was too lazy to go train at an elite camp. For example Hyppolite kills me on the pads and then I spar with three partners in a six minute round.
I couldn’t spar to KO my sparring partner because those were mostly people who were training with me as a favor to me.
In Amsterdam it’s a battle for life and death. I go for the KO and so does my sparring partner. In the future I think I will do most of my preparation in Amsterdam”
So it looks like all those left high kick KOs from Pride were a mistake. Dude didn’t even train for them, it was a freak accident like Sarah Palin being John McCain’s vice-presidential nomination. Nah, I’m just playing Chael Sonnen. Republicans have to eat too. [Source]
