Let Cro-cop's demise teach a lesson to all the loud mouths (attn: Floyd Mayweather) who say UFC is toughman or crap because the striking isn't always crisp.
The game changes completely when you have to worry about takedowns. If Mirko didn't have to worry about takedowns, he would've destroyed Gonzaga, however, because he did, it changed him as a fighter. ANY striker, no matter how good they are, would need to change how they fight if there were to fight MMA.
Floyd Mayweather won't read this, but let is be known that if he, or any other boxer, ever showed the balls to step into the Octagon, they would get absolutely wrecked.
