News broke earlier today via various MMA media outlets that Croatian Fighting Legend Mirko CroCop Filipovic had resigned with the UFC.
Earlier in the week Scott Coker president of Bellator MMA announced that he was interested in signing the Croatian heavyweight fighter and was in talks to secure him in the organization. I guess that interview put the UFC brass on alert and the call to CroCop was made.To date there has been no terms or announcements regarding his new contract from the UFC officially but the news had come from someone within the organization.
Mirko’s last MMA fight was a head kick knockout over Japanese Olympic medalist Satoshi Ishii at the beggining of the year in Japan. He lloked impressive in that fight but Ishii is not a UFC caliber heavyweight.
With Mirko Crocop Filipovic return to the UFC imminent who would you like to see him face in his first bout? Do you think it was a good move by the UFC and for Mirko to return?
