Cro Cop Talks Fedor, Lesnar And The Title

Fresh off settling his own UFC contract negotiation fiasco, Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ took time to talk to Croatian website about the Fedor-UFC situation. Cro Cop also weighed in on UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and when he thinks he’ll have the opportunity to fight for his belt. The interview’s in Croatian, but thanks to Robert K at here’s a translation of the pertinent quotes.

Fedor Emelianenko
“Everyone knows that all the top fighters are in the UFC and that the its is the only global MMA organization. One would think that it should be Fedor demanding to fight in the UFC [not the other way around].. I cant really see who he’ll fight outside the UFC.”

Brock Lesnar
“He has been an athlete all his life but he ¬†still very new to MMA. I’m an old school fighter, I believe in technique, that’s not a strength of his at the moment but everything he lacks in technique he makes up with his incredible physical strength and size.”

The UFC Heavyweight Title
“I’ll take it one fight at a time, with the aim of winning the title and staying happy and healthy. Should I win my next two fights, a title shot could be next and that could come soon. Maybe even before the year ends.
