Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic

Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic

Don't break the law! Nicknamed "Cro Cop," (short for "Croatian Cop") this former Croatian police officer is a K-1 fighting veteran and boasts an impressive Thai boxing background. With a style that is persistent and aggressive, Filipovic would prefer to keep the fight standing so that he can launch his arsenal of strikes, including a killer left high kick. While respectful of his opponents and displaying the honor of the martial arts, "Cro Cop" remains a merciless competitor. This killer instinct along with his dynamic fighting style has led to victories over such PRIDE stars as Kazushi Sakuraba, Heath Herring, and Kazuyuki Fujita. Outside the ring, "Cro Cop" is a former member of Croatia's anti-terrorist group, "Lucko," and is currently heavily involved in Croatian politics.
