Croatian UFC heavyweight, Mirko Cro Cop is seemingly having trouble coming to terms with his fall from grace over the past few years, claiming he still belongs at the very top of the divisions ranking’s.

Speaking via a Croatian sports channel, Dnevik, Cro Cop said:

“It is difficult to comment on the rankings. After fighting Fedor I was second, and now I'm 20th. I do not know how realistic it is. Do not bother about these charts. After the defeat of Dos Santos, I was mentally exhausted. Personally I do not think I belong in the 20th place, but at the very top.”

 

Cro Cop returns to action on February 21st against Ben Rothwell in Sydney, Australia, a fight he desperately needs to win if he’s to remain relevant at all in the division.

“There is no better motivation than what was mentioned earlier, which is that I am ranked in 20th place. Even with the performances I have had lately, I do not believe my place is that low, I believe I am in the upper end of the scale and now I have to go out there and prove it.”

 

 

UFC 111 will be headlined by the heavyweight clash between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Cain Velasquez, while middleweights Michael Bisping and Wanderlei Silva will lock horns in the middle of the octagon.
