Mirko Cro Cop defeats Ray Sefo at “Final Fight” in Zagreb, Croatia via decision

March 10, 2012 All MMA News

Former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight knockout artist, Mirko Cro Cop tonight returned to his kickboxing roots at the Arena Zagreb in Zagreb, Croatia, defeating fellow legend, Ray Sefo via unanimous decision in what turned into a sloppy and uneventful affair.

The first round was a sloppy one but that’s hardly a surprise given both men are in the twilight years of their careers. Cro Cop seemed to be doing well, snapping back the head of Sefo but it was Sefo who was landing the harder shots. Cro Cop began to take over in the second round, working on the inside and landing a series of nice uppercuts and shots to the body. The third round turned into a clinch-fest with continual breaks from the referee. Cro Cop probably did enough to edge the round and took a rather unspectacular decision.

The event was dubbed “Final Fight” in mark of Cro Cop’s last professional combat sports fight, whether it be MMA or kickboxing. Since the fight was put together the legend has revealed he plans to keep on fighting and is looking to compete in the kickboxing world over the next year and maybe beyond.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
