Cro Cop knows the best base for mixed martial arts is pro wrestling. Only three months from arm triangle choking a dude in the Rizin Open Weight Grand Prix, Cro Cop’s MMA game is ever evolving. While you’re thinking about head kick defense, he’s dropping to his back to play the Jiu-Jitsu game with you.
With the world around him going left, the former K-1 champion is taking a hard abrupt right turn when it comes to his MMA training. Only a month away from a New Year Eve’s weekend date with Wanderlei Silva, a buff as hell Mirko Cro Cop is over here slamming and suplexing the hell out of his poor sparring partners.
For what reason? Who really knows but Mirko why the 42 year old heavyweight is suddenly more muscled up than the 25 year old version of himself?
Don’t question the methods of Cro Cop just watch him belly to belly suplex and body slam a series of grown men like he’s The Ultimate Warrior and they’re a helpless heel Ravishing Rick Rude circa a 1990 pro wrestling ring.
