Mirko âCroCopâ Filipovic is finished with MMA for good but is not finished competing.
According to his management he is âgoing to try and win the K-1 tournamentâ this year, in keeping with his lifelong dream.
CroCop met with reporters in his home city of Zagreb yesterday to discuss a March 10 fight with Ray Sefo. The match had originally been billed as a âfarewell fightâ but CroCop now seems to have had second thoughts about hanging up the gloves.
âI think it is important to say this event is named âCroCop: Final Fightâ but that doesnât mean that this is Mirkoâs farewell fight. No way,â his manager Orsat Zovko said.
âIts true he is done with the UFC, he isnât going to fight in the cage anymore, but plans are to keep him among the elite and try and win the K-1 tournament this year.â
On Thursday, CroCop confirmed in a text message to Fighters Only writer John O'Regan, "I'll try this year - if the K-1 happens."
