    What happened to the guy in the background? He was like mirko's shadow throughout his entire career, but now he's nowhere to be seen.

    I don't know what happened to him but that guy was CroCop's original financial sponsor. He was a businessman whom I think owned a gym and saw Crocop training really hard when he was 17 or so, and he ended up sponsoring him financially with monthly payments and an apt so he could focus 100% on training with the goal of turning pro.
    That's why he was always with him before.
    It's possible their contract had a termination clause at a certain point b/c you are right, I haven't seen him in a while.

    Thanks for explaining that.
    I don't remember seeing him during his UFC days either, but I could be wrong.

    Good post. I wish fights were open weight. I don't care to watch the 100m for people over 200lbs, I just wanna see who is fastest. Same with fighting. And I'm a lightweight, and can see the value in smaller fighters in terms of being great training partners for the real fighters.

    Zvonimir Lucic. He was Mirko's manager since his K-1 days. I believe they had a fall out and are no longer on speaking terms.

    Was that before or after his UFC career? Haven't seen him for years now I think about it.

    I think it happened in 2011 sometime around the time he fought Mir or Schaub. Not sure why it happened either.

    Not mention Crocop was fought 8 TIMES IN 2004, and 5 times in 2005. Cain cant even fight more than once a year and people question the wear and tear guys like Crocop, Nog, and Fedor put on their bodies before coming to the UFC.

    After all these years does Cain even have 13 fights in his entire career???
