Nokaut: Do you have any plans for fighting in K1 again?

Cro Cop: Not at the moment, but I would like to have a fight in K1 next year, or maybe even two fights. Especially considering DREAM being owned by K1 too. So I am attracted to it yes, but I won't be focusing only on K1, that's for sure.

As much as I would like to see Cro Cop doing some straight up kickboxing again, I feel that so much time off from it has put him in a position where he would have a lot of catching up to do. Even Remy said when they were training that Cro Cop lost a lot of his skills.

Of course, it is to be expected considering he is training in MMA.

I'd prefer Cro Cop stick with MMA and focus on MMA. I think his K-1 glory days are long behind him at this point. But who knows....

I'm a big K1 fan. Would be great to see Mirko fight, but his MMA career right now is at a hault. Let's see how he does against Overeem.
