UFC 119 – Mirko Cro Cop confirms he was hit in the eye, although it turns out to be nothing serious

September 18, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

UFC heavyweight knockout artist, Mirko Cro Cop has revealed he DID take a considerable blow to his eye during training this week in Croatia, but rest assured the knockout artist is good to go for his fight against Frank Mir next weekend at UFC 119.

Speaking via, Cro Cop said:

“I got hit in the eye, but nothing scary. This isn’t the first nor the last punch like that. It won’t stop me from traveling to fight, and to fight next Saturday against Frank Mir.”

Cro Cop will be looking to add to his third round submission win over Pat Barry when he steps into the octagon with Mir next Saturday night, with his biggest advantage being the power he possesses in his kics. Can he defeat the American grappler or will he end up getting choked out himself this time?
