GLORY 17’s Mirko “Cro Cop” on Jarrell Miller: “The Strategy is to Kick His Ass”
By FCF Staff
There’s been no shortage of verbal jabs between Mirko “Cro Cop’s” camp and Jarrell Miller, as the two prepare to rematch at GLORY 17, and that trend continued at the event’s pre-fight presser.
“Cro Cop” decisioned Miller at a K-1 event last March, and the latter has repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of the defeat since. Here is some of what the noted strikers had to say about tonight’s bout, which will headline the even’t SPIKE broadcast.

“Everyone has their own style. I don’t like it personally, but if that is how he feels like promoting himself to the media, that is up to him. But personally I don’t like it.”
[Miller leans forward and looks at Cro Cop, saying “Boo hoo” into the mic.]
“I don’t care. Talk is talk and a fight is a fight. If it makes him relaxed, then good for him. I don’t care. No big deal.”
“The strategy will be to kick his ass. I will use my kicks much more than in the previous fight… [to Miller: Don’t interrupt me please!] so we will see what happens in two days. Either you see me knock him out or you see him take care of me. We will see.”
“I talked smack, he didn’t like it, I fought him in his country, they jerked me around. So I’m gonna talk smack, fight him in my country, beat him again and get the right outcome.”
“I’m not playing no games. I didn’t come here all the way from New York to LA just to talk smack and not do my job. I’m gonna do what I do best and that’s kick ass. If you don’t like smack-talk, so what? That’s part of the sport. This is a business. And I back up what I say. Coco-Cop is going down. Look out for it, it’s coming.”
