    1. was refused payment for the finals if he were to beat wanderlei, and consequently backed out of the GP and went on vacation to some place called Pula

    :eek3: they don't want to pay him for 2 fights if he makes it to the finals, i thought you meant they didn't want to pay him at all if he beat wanderlei

    also pride only pays 150k while K1 pays 400k :eek3: thats crazy

    I wonder who they'll have fighting now

    This is the source http://www.vecernji-list.hr/newsroom...04977/index.do

    I'm still can't belive it.!!!!!!!!!
    The article is in croatian, so i'm gonna translate the most important part.

    Cro Cop is angry.But not with Wanderlei Silva but with DSE.DSE has refused to pay Mirko what he wants so he won't participate in the GP."We couldn't make a deal so on monday i'm leaving to Pula on well deserved vacation.I don't care how others solve this problems,but i won't give up my principles, and they say i'm to exspensive to them.I just want to be paid for the risk I take.
    I'm very sorry for my fans,but also for all MMA fans who expected a great show."
    Unofficialy we found out that DSE refused Mirko's request that if he gets to the finals he gets paid for the second fight.If Mirko defeats Silva in semis and fights in the finals (Nog/Barnet) it's logical that he requested to get paid for that fight including the prize money if he wins the GP.
    If Mirko doesn't travel to Tokio he probably won't fight in Pride anymore, but he has a great offer from a new american organization (WFA).



    how much does he think wfa will pay him LOL

    If this is true, that's fucked up. I don't think there is a suitable replacement. The only other appropriate fighter would be Fedor, but this whole thing is to see the next contender to him. I hope they can fix this or this tournament is fucked.

    this tournament was not originally set to make a contender for fedor...I.E. Fedor was supposed to be in wandys place, but his hand is still healing.

    I was thinking about that, but I'm not sure if his leg will be better by September 10th.

    Sherdog.com confirms it. But it doesn't say anything about him not getting paid if he beats wanderlai. It just says that he wants more money if he wins because he has to fight twice in one night. Also, WFA did offer him a huge sum of money.

    it's also fucked up from him to disappoint all the fans that were waiting on this, and also the organization that build him up. He could've waited till after the GP, fight the fights, get the money and then leave the organization. It's not like he's gonna get any fights with the wfa the day of pride owgp

    true, i dont think crocop cares about fighting anymore. He misses his family alot and i doubt he regrests this move. he said he would quit if he lost the gp anyway. grats to him for being a family man.

    Grats to Silva for being a ferocious, rabid animal and grats to fedor for being an unstopped killing cyborg though.

    Minotauro and Barnett, you guys are cool too.

    Ok here's my take on this....

    Pride is afraid that if wandy gets beat too badly by mirko that he won't be it good enough condition to fight Chuck.

    This is going to be one of the biggest Pride vs. UFC events ever and you are going to want Wandy in the best shape.

    So they paid off Mirko to drop out of the tournament but SAY he dropped out because he's not going to get paid.

    Pride is a huge organization with alot of money, and I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem with paying Mirko or any of the top Heavy Weights what they want.

    having mirko drop out does not mean wandy does not have to fight though, so would you rather have him lose one fight or fight one get beat up and win...then fight again and possibly beat up again win or lose
