Dana White: “tonight is probably the last time we’ll see ‘Cro Cop’ fight again”

UFC President, Dana White has confirmed that former PRIDE open weight grand-prix champion, Mirko Cro Cop will no longer be fighting for the Las Vegas promotion after losing yet another one inside the octagon, this time to top prospect, Brendan Schaub at UFC 128 last night in Newark, New Jersey.

White, speaking at the post-fight press conference, said:

“I don’t think I’d have an argument from ‘Cro Cop.’ I was talking tonight about how tough Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ is,” White said. “At his age and with the wars he’s been in, to see how he gets in there with these heavyweights now that are bigger, stronger and younger than he is – and he still holds his own – it’s a testament to what a great fighter that guy was in his prime.”

“I have all respect for Mirko ‘Cro Cop,’ but yeah, I’d have to say tonight is probably the last time we’ll see ‘Cro Cop’ fight again.”
