Woah, I thought I was the only person that contemplated suicide after Cro Cop’s UFC 103 loss against Dos Santos. It looks like Mirko was pretty bummed about the loss, so much in fact that he thought about hanging himself in his Dallas hotel room. Wow.
“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 … 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 … 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.”
That is some pretty intense stuff. Dude pulled an Arlovski but luckily didn’t go through with it. I don’t need another one of my heroes to die. I’m still getting over ‘Cotton’ from King of the Hill. [Source]
