Former PRIDE grand prix champion Mirko Cro Cop has announced his retirement. In a recent appearance on the Croatian network Nova TV, Cro Cop, 44, said he was no longer able to compete after being hospitalized due to a stroke. He told the host: Itís over. I hope Iím not going to cry, but itís the inevitable retirement.Ē His last fight was for Bellator where he lost to Roy Nelson. He suffered a neck injury two or three months ago and may have had a seizure before the Nelson fight. He says he will continue to train but in his condition he could never let anyone hit him.
