In non-related soccer news but very important Croatian sports news, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipović announced earlier this week that he will be traveling to Japan to make a very important announcement regarding his future in fighting. In his personal blog ‘Cro Cop’ writes,
“I’m off to Tokyo! A big announcement will come straight from Japan tomorrow (February 13).When the official part is done I’ll be able to provide more information about everything,and believe me, I have many things to say.What you could easily guess by now is that I won’t be retiring.I’ll keep on fighting, it’s my life, it’s what I do.”
So what it looks like to me is that Cro Cop is done with his short-lived and frankly disastrous career with the UFC and could be moving to HERO’S in Japan, which is owned by the same group who operates K-1.
I’ll report immediately after the press conference and after Mirko tells us which direction his career will now be going in.
As my good friend would say- ‘YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!”
