Mirko CroCop: “I want a farewell fight in the UFC”
The rumours that Mirko “CroCop” Filopivic would head back to the UFC have been rife for a while. The Croatian star had a stint in the UFC, and due to contractual issues he left. But now “CroCop” wants his last MMA fight to be in the UFC.
At one point Mirko “CroCop” Filopivic was considered the most feared striker in all of MMA, he even reached a head kick on Hong Man Choi but was deflected. His list of victims is too long to fit on this page, and his success in PRIDE and now DREAM is clear for all to see. But Mirko says that he wants his final MMA fight to go down inside the Octagon.
“I'm not in the years when you can create a long-term plan... today my health is my priority. I believe that during 2009 I will fight three more times for Dream, then I hope for a farewell fight in the UFC.”
Mirko is suffering from severe damage, however won’t undergo surgery yet due to poor health. We hope to see the Croatian back on his feet and kicking soon.
