cro cop's thousand yard stare

Looks like MMA fighter Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic is calling it quits after a disappointing performance at UFC 103. Quoth Cro Cop:

I fucked up and that's all there is to it. Maybe the ones who I've said that I'm done are right. Obviously I can't break my mental block in the Octagon. Besides, I've been training like a spartan for 20 years now, my body is worn out. The years caught up to me, I've been worn out...I want a normal life. I'm entering a cage and thinking about fishing in Privlaka. You can't win that way.

I'm posting because of this picture:

I think that's a really beautiful photograph. His eyes, man.

Side note: Cro Cop is only thirty-five years old. That's a year older than me.

It's scary how much older he looks.
