There’s not much more we can say about Mike ‘The Croatian Crippler’ Rožić. After joining the team immediately after the launch of CroatianSports.com in October, the Crippler quickly jumped on the UFC scene, reporting on Croatian fighters weekly and ultimately landing his stake on the Croatian media scene when he covered Igor ‘The Duke’ Pokrajac at UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada. Not only did Crippler gain credentials for the event, but Pokrajac invited him to join his camp giving Rožić exclusive interviews along the way. We thank The Crippler for putting in the work he has thus far. CroatianSports.com is a better place because of it.
A notable mention goes out to Dr. Colin O’ Haravić for his exclusive interview with Ivan Klasnić this past summer.
The first of many exclusive MMA interviews for The Crippler
yea maybe you should have a recount , that klasnic interview was damn pretty good too and afterall this is mainly a football site …….. is this another florida recount thing……… -U-
Congrats to the Crippler. Seriously, he deserved it. He has taken us where most fans of the sport never get to go. Great job, man. I’m very happy to see I was nominated w him for rookie of the year. Hopefully I will bring more to this site in 2012. 🙂
I invested all my $$$ into soybeans like the great Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
You know I love you man. Gotta push your buttons just to make sure your heart’s still pumping. Do the same with my good friends Fistonich and Agent Argentina. Never take it personal.
Talking about retirement already huh? Who will be your grasshopper?
Close to retirement and your what going to turn 30 years old? What do you play for Manchester United and Sir Alex told you to retire from your national team care and only care about personal club issues.
relax fellas relax. No harm intended with Allen’s comment and Ante is trying to push someone’s buttons.
Not to rain on the Crippler’s parade, but who will be the rookie of the year in 2012?
We’re building an empire here. I’m getting old, close to retirement. We need some young blood in here taking charge.
Alright then it’s good to know that Crippler is just that. You like to make sneaky comments which is fine but at least I’m not the guy who puts up things on the headline that are completely false just because I saw it off some site. Corluka to Championship, that’s a laugher. Talk to you Sunday, get ready for an explosion on Sunday Night Live or whatever you call your great show.
Beyond well deserved! Keep up the good work!
Crippler is our MMA writer. Not soccer. I could care less if Mike didn’t know what a soccer ball looked like. Not his job. If he wants to chime in on soccer, handball, palacinka articles, more power to us all.
The guy is bringing it to the table. Never seen someone deliver like Crippler. He didn’t talk about doing it, he just did it. Proud to have the guy on our team.
I’m still waiting for you to show me how much soccer you know. 🙂
(Low blow alert!)
Congrats Mike, great job and Sretna Nova!
Also Stipe Miocic let me know things are going good in California and the guys hes training with are top notch.Keep an eye out for more info on Stipe coming up to his fight in February.
Anthony Perosh (Australian Croatian) will face Nick Penner at Ufc on Fx 2 March 2nd.
I know a lot about soccer but Denis and Ante pay me the big bucks to write about MMA not soccer lol. We can organize a one on one soccer game if you want haha.
@ CroatianSports team and readers
Thanks for the award it means a lot to me and expect big things this year from the Crippler and Croatian Sports.com
One proud wife!
O’Haravic was definitely another good mention. Klasnic interview and solid comments consistently.
eeehhhhh…. O’Haravic was robbed, I want a recount!
Crippler you are a good man and I’m happy you won. I’m still looking into how much “soccer” you know. But until then, you still are a great man and you’re taking the column to a whole new level. I’m happy UFC is becoming known on the site because I’m a huge fan and always down to talk with anyone about the sport. Good to have you around buddy, hope your not taking the blowout loss to hard in fantasy thanks to the Outraged Barrage!!
Well deserved. Crippler came out of nowhere and took Croatian MMA to a whole new level.
To top it off, the best comment was “If it wasn’t for the mic, I wouldnt know who the fighter was.” hahaha..
