There is great news for fans of the ‘Croatian Sensation’. It is looking as though the legendary PRIDE and UFC veteran, Mirko Filipovic (24-6-2) could make his return to the UFC Octagon on June 13, 2009 in Cologne, Germany at UFC 99. The event will be the UFC’s first foray into the central European country and what better way to make an entrance than to bring back one of central Europe’s greatest fighters of all time, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic.
‘Cro Cop’ a.k.a. ‘the Croatian Sensation’, told the Croatian news site, Nova, in a new interview he is in negotiations with the UFC to fight at UFC 99 and he is very confident they will come to an agreement and will be on the card in June. ‘Cro Cop’ said Randy Couture (16-9) could be a possible opponent but it was not up to him or his management.
