Mirko Cro Cop makes successful MMA return with first round submission

I never liked the way he left the UFC on a losing note. He can still bang if his heart is in it and if he fights aggressively. He owns the biggest KO shot in the history of the sport.

Mirko Cro Cop has successfully made his return to the MMA arena. Facing Shinichi Suzukawa at the New Year’s Eve Inoki Boom Ba Ye, Cro Cop showed no ring rust at all following his retirement a little over a year ago.

The fight was destined to last only a very short time, as Cro Cop not surprisingly came out aggressive with his trademark standup, but then decided to pull a new trick out of the bag. Taking Suzukawa down with surprising ease, Cro Cop then finished off his pro wrestler opponent with an armbar submission.

A successful return for the famed former Pride Heavyweight Grand Prix winner, who came to the UFC all the way back in 2007 riding an unprecedented amount of hype. That hype was never realized, as Gabriel Gonzaga seemed to take the wind out of Cro Cop’s sails with his own move, the vicious headkick.

He finished with a very subpar record of 4 wins and 6 losses in the Octagon, a far cry from his almost indestructible image in Japan. Now he is back fighting in the country where he gained his fame. It may not be Pride, but Mirko Filipovic has made a victorious return.

I don't know if you really can call a win over someone with NO MMA record at all a "successful return"

I'll take it. It's a moral victory...confidence booster if you will.

Gotta love the sumo diaper...roflz! I have a feeling we may have not seen the last of Crocop just yet. He owes us one last LHK in the UFC man.

Actually no, I'd say. Imagine you were one of the best and then to not go out with a losing streak, you have to beat up some noob with NO MMA competition experience. That must be pretty embarassing.

Remember this is Japan we are talking about. They put together match ups like all the Bob Sapp fights, all the Akebono fights, etc. This is typical Japanese match making which is all hype.
