    Default Cro Cop: UFC stars, Jones included, should be fired

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...ould-be-fired/


    "I don't know what to say. It's nice that they came, that they graced us with their presence. But on the flip side, I think Dana White is going to grow his hair back when he sees them here. Jon Jones is the light heavyweight champion. Werdum is fighting Cain next for the heavyweight belt. Those are people under contract with UFC. Now they come over here as guests. Do your seminar, okay? Do the seminar and go. They came over, sat in the front row at the press conference. Took photos. All of that sends a bad message.

    I would never do that, never. If I am under contract with another organization, whether it be UFC, PRIDE ... if I'm under contract -- and they all are -- under a multiple fight UFC contract, I would never do it. Do a seminar maybe, but I would never appear at a press conference, let alone stand in front of banners that have a logo of a different organization. We all took photos together. I'm the main event. Unbelievable. They basically came over to promote a totally new organization. Dana White is going to go mad, 100 percent, totally justifiable in my opinion.

    I would go mad, too, I would fire them all. Of course, those are fighters who bring the UFC money, but they didn't think it through and it comes off unprofessional. I would never do that. Dana White's hair is going to grow back for sure when he sees this. Mildly put, I think Dana White is going to be pissed off!"

    He is a legend of the sport. Just like bad rutten's opinion would be news.

    He was asked questions in an interview and he answered them. He didn't call a press conference to tell everyone these things.

    On topic; I enjoy Cro Cop interviews and I wonder how Dana does feel about those guys going over there. Was this a publicity thing? Did they all go on their own accord? The UFC usually seems fairly tight about these sort of things. I wouldn't think anything of it had it been just one guy but that was like what five different fighters? It seems odd.

    1.- I don't think you are a big Crocop fan, otherwise you would not be asking that.

    2.- Because he is one of the best fighters in MMA history, and because he is literally a KO artist (He KOd many fighters in brutal fashion, and was KOd by many fighters also in brutal fashion) back in Pride he was a monster and was a also a very good fighter in K-1.
    Because he recently had success in Kickboxing (Though there are rumours that the tournament he won was fixed) and simply because back in the day he was (with Fedor) the most feared fighter in the world.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Because he was the most recognizable name at the event that was crashed.....

    ...Werdum and Jones crashed the Legends 2 press conference in Russia after giving a seminar?

    All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

    wait....did you just say Genki Sudo unretired?

    Seems like that's what's going on. Mirko probably feels like they were trying to steal their thunder. I see where he's coming from.
