Mirko Cro Cop: Guess Who's Back (Perhaps)!

New, 12 comments



There could be a new turn in the case of the MMA fighter who is so wishy washy that he makes Brett Favre look decisive. Fiveouncesofpain.com is reporting that Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic might be returning to the UFC after all. According to the report: "It has been reported on the Croatian website Index.hr that UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta flew out to Croatia this morning on a private jet to have a two hour conversation with Filipovic on his own turf. The article goes on to state that both Mirko and Lorenzo were all smiles following the meeting and it is reported that Cro Cop was made an offer that would be difficult to refuse. DREAM has yet to announce a bout for Filipovic, and it now appears very likely that Mirko will pick up where he left off in the UFC."

So, if this turns out to be true, this whole CroCop saga will have come full circle. Any interest out there in how Mirko might play into the UFC heavyweight scene?
