It shouldn't be a surprise that Cro Cop makes this list as like Wanderlei Silva, he wasn't the same fighter that he was in Pride.
After being given a warmup fight against Eddie Sanchez, Mirko was involved in a title eliminator match against Gabriel Gonzaga and what would become one of the most shocking moments in UFC history when Gonzaga knocked Cro Cop out using Cro Cop's signature headkick.
Since then picked some strong wins before being put up against a newcomer to the UFC heavyweight division, someone you might have heard of, Junior Dos Santos. To say Dos Santos beat him is an understatement, the fight would eventually be stopped in the third round due to Cro Crop sustaining an injury from a punch.
After beating Anthony Perosh and Pat Barry, Cro Cop would face Frank Mir. The two would have a fairly uneventful match until the final minute of the match when Mir would knock Cro Cop out with a knee to the head.
Cro Cop would be knocked out in his next fight as well, this time against TUF alumni Brendan Schaub.
After the Dos Santos fight Cro Cop had stated that he wasn't feeling the hunger anymore to fight although it was all he knew in his life. It seemed that that sentiment has carried through with his last batch of fights.
It seems that his next fight against Roy Nelson may be a “loser leaves the promotion” as both men have lost their last two fights, so Mirko may be able to redeem himself with a strong win over “Big Country.”
If he loses again, it may be the last time we the fans see Cro Cop in the Octagon. Hard to imagine that a headkick could lead to the fall from grace that it did.
