Originally all that talk of Mirko coming back to the UFC sounded like complete bullshit. But now after reading this, I’m starting to think it’s more than just empty words:
According to the Croatian website javno.com, Mirko Filipovic said, “..I have already mentioned that I will take part in three fights for Dream, and that then I will return to the UFC. And to all internet know-it-alls I say to put gloves on and to enter the ring or the cage themselves before insulting whatever fighter. I repeat, I am not avoiding the UFC, and will come back by the end of the year.”
I’ve got to say, the idea of CroCop taking care of business in Japan and then returning to the UFC upon a chariot built from the bones of fallen opponents … well, quite frankly, it arouses me. Down there. In my pee-pee.
There’s another cool quote in that article too about Mirko losing his will to fight in there too. I’ve gotta give it to him … when most fighters give excuses, they usually don’t involve “I sucked, I was weak, my heart was not in it.” Although I suppose that’s a less humbling excuse than “I’m a mid-talent fighter who looked good because of steroids and Pride match fixing.”
