‘Cro Cop’ Done? Don’t Bet on It

By Jake Rossen Sep 22, 2009
If its weekend circulation is any indication, the ink is running dry on Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic’s comments to Croatian newspaper Jutarnji that he’s lost his taste for combat.”I’m entering a cage and thinking about fishing in Privlaka,” he said. “You can’t win that way.” This is the first time anyone has admitted to thinking about Privlaka.

The 24 to 48 hours post-fight is absolutely the worst time possible to solicit a fighter quote: under the black cloud of a loss, it means virtually nothing. Odds are, Filipovic will pull himself together and happily accept a Japanese payday to fight a medical journal case-study by year’s end. This is a man who once high-kicked a fighter wearing a Mexican luchadore’s mask. Let’s not have too much faith in the guy.
