Mirko Cro Cop: “I’m sorry like a dog! I could eat myself alive”

The fans are not the only ones who were disappointed with the UFC 119 main event, UFC heavyweight, Mirko Cro Cop is extremely disappointed that he was knocked out by Frank Mir in the dying minute of the final round.

Cro Cop, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“I’m sorry like a dog! I could eat myself alive! I can only congratulate Mir, he really caught me with that knee. But taking all circumstances in to consideration I think I did a pretty decent job. Its too bad because there was only a minute left to go [when I was stopped]. I had him against the fence and that was my chance.”

“The deal with my coach was not to go in any hard exchanges until the third round because I thought I was not as prepared as him. But it turned out that I was more prepared than him. I felt more powerful than him in the third round and I went after him aggressively. Too bad I caught that knee, but that’s what this sport is about. I want to thank everybody for their support and apologize to the ones I’ve disappointed.”
