Mirko “CroCop” Filipovic out for six months

Mirko ‘CroCop’ Flipovic ended 2008 on a relative high note by defeating the Korean ‘Techno Giant,’ Hong Man Choi at the K-1 Dynamite!! New Year’s Eve extravaganza in Saitama, Japan.

‘CroCop’ won the fight with chopping leg kicks; the last collapsing the massive Korean’s leg causing him to fall to the ground.

As many fans saw, Mirko entered the ring with his classic attire of wrestling shoes but also both knees wrapped in braces. The fight itself was short of any major fireworks and we may now know why.

Cro Cop confirms Hong Man Choi as opponent

For the last few weeks rumors have been circulating that Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic would be facing off against Hong Man Choi at this New Year’s Eve K-1 Dynamite card. Now Cro Cop has confirmed the MMA rules match up in his blog:

I’m excited to let you know that I have accepted DREAM’s offer to fight against Hong-man Choi on December 31 at Dynamite show. We arranged all details and the contract has been signed – the fight is officialy on.

The Croation, Filipovic, known to fans as Cro Cop, has recently been trying to put his career back together after a less than impressive stint in the UFC. He debuted February of 2007 with a great deal of fan fare, and defeated Eddie Sanchez late in the first round.
