    he's had a great career and someone of his ability, guts and determination will be missed a lot, but yes this has been coming for a while

    It's better than going out being embarassed by mir for an unnecessary 3rd time.

    True legend

    Good for him, he had a great career. Dude's a legend, tough as fuck but he doesn't need to take any more damage and he has nothing left to prove.

    Good.. his fight against Struve was fucking terrible, he should have retired after KOing Schaub in Brazil.. epic win, in front of home crowd, big ovation etc etc

    Would have avoided getting his arm torn off by Mir too

    I'm glad.

    Now this is one less pointless rematch for Cro-Cop which would have proved absolutely nothing.

    He should've retired after Mir broke his arm. I understand that it's hard for these guys to give it up, but at some point they have to think about their personal safety

    Should've retired after knocking out Schwab. Go out on top at home, don't hurt your legacy, avoid a fucked up arm and save at least 5 years off your life. The trauma from that arm and KO by Nelson were viscous.

    I'm just glad he didn't go out on another KO loss as he showed how much heart he has one last time and finished the fight standing.

    Every fight he has had lately he's taking damage he shouldn't be taking. Hopefully he's still healthy and can enjoy the good life now as I'm sure financially he's set.

    i think a lot of the times they keep going because they want to go out on a win and then just end up with loss after loss

    Actually very glad to hear that. I was in Abu Dhabi when nelson knocked him out. One of the saddest things I'd seen.

    Good. Sail off into the sunset and enjoy the retirement. Got nothing left to prove.
