Cro Cop Injured....pulls out of Grappling Match

Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic has been forced to pull out of his upcoming grappling exhibition against Ralek Gracie at Dream 4 due to undisclosed injuries, according to a report from Croation news site

The grappling match, which was recently announced, pitted Cro Cop against Gracie and would have featured the two fighters in a submission bout for two rounds.

The report stated Cro Cop was dealing with some nagging injuries and he decided to forgo this match-up and wait until July 21 for the next Dream show.

Although at this time no fight has been signed, he is strongly rumored to be facing former K-1 champion Jerome LeBanner in an MMA bout.

Cro Cop last competed for Dream in March 2008 defeating Tatsuya Mizuno by TKO in under a minute during his debut for the promotion.

Well I hope he's still going to be putting the same amount of time into ground training.
