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.

I wasnt looking forward to this match at all to be honest. I hope he does train on the ground though like he was going to. Striking skills, better ground, + new nose = UFC champ if he comes back.

This sucks but the fight between him and Jerome LeBanner at Dream 5 should be really good.

don't think that grappling match would be very exciting, but LeBanner fight i will be looking for :praise01:

Yeah I don't mind this really, it would have been interesting but it's not really a great lose. I want to see him fight LeBanner to see if he can come back or if he is done.
