Contrary to recent reports, Cro Cop not retiring…yet

Mirko is not yet ready to hang it up.

“Cro Cop calls it quits” is just one of the many headlines today on multiple MMA “news” sites that claim the Croatian has retired from the UFC and MMA. It seems, however, that these reports are a bit hasty, and that Mirko is not hanging it up just yet.

The 35-year-old Croatian fighter had this to say, to Index.hr,

“Although it would be for the best to stay out, I would like to do two more contracted fights with the UFC and then end my career. Simply, fights and training are in my blood, I still haven’t made my final decision, it can happen that I finish everything day after tomorrow, but I would like to in fact still do it. After the Dos Santos defeat I was hot and the statements were not founded. Things are not all that black.”

UFC’s Lorenzo Fertitta visits CroCop in Croatia

Index understands that Lorenzo Fertitta, the head honcho and part owner of the UFC flew to Zagreb with his own private jet earlier this morning. He was driven to Mirko’s residents shortly after, where he stayed for two hours talking with the Croatian fighter. He returned to the airport afterwards, smiling, where his private jet flew off in to an unknown destination.

Filipovic receives an offer he can not refuse
There is no doubt that Fertitta came to Zagreb to persuade the Croatian fighter to change his mind and to sign with the world’s strongest fight sport organization. We understand that Cro Cop has been offered an incredible deal that should see him fight with the UFC once again. Although Filipovic was unavailable for comment, it’s clear that this is a major development in the ongoing negotiations. We will almost certainly see CroCop in the world’s strongest organization once again despite Cro Cop’s close ties with Dream.
