We here at PRO MMA (promma.info) told you almost two weeks ago that Mirko Filipovic would be returning to the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Germany. For some reason the UFC remained tight-lipped on the subject; but no more.
The UFC made the official announcement today on their website that Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic will return to the Octagon against England’s Mostapha Al-Turk on the main card of “UFC 99: The Comeback” in Cologne, Germany on June 13th.
Due to a knee surgery he had earlier this year, this will mark “Cro Cop’s” first fight of 2009. The Croation stated he hopes to fight three times by year’s end. The terms and number of fights on “Cro Cop’s” contract with the UFC has not been disclosed.
