Cro Cop got Cut but is still fighting on the card

19/02/10 - Report: CroCop cut in sparring, required stitches, still fighting UFC 110

Just 24 hours after learning that his kickboxer opponent Ben Rothwell is out ot UFC 110 and will be replaced by a ground fighter, Mirko ‘CroCop’ Filipovic has reportedly had more bad news. According to sources in Croatia, he has received a bad cut in a pre-fight sparring workout and has had to have stitches.

Croatian website MMA Axion reported this morning that Filipovic was sparring with his team mate Sasa Mucnjak when he received a bad cut above the eyeline. The cut was stitched and Filipovic has declined to pull out of the fight, saying he will not let weeks of hard preparation go to waste.

But those weeks of hard preparation were to face a kickboxing stylist and yesterday Ben Rothwell was pulled off the card because of an infection and replaced by Anthony Perosh, a second-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a completely different style to Rothwell.

The UFC allegedly asked Randy Couture and Quinton ‘Ramapge’ Jackson if they would take the fight with Filipovic at short notice but both turned it down flat. Perosh - who has an 0-2 record in the UFC from 2006 - took it on two days notice on the understanding he would get a four-fight contract out of it.

As much of an upset as a last-minute change of opponent is, a freshly-stitched cut is even worse and Filipovic is taking a real risk entering the cage with a cut is likely to open up again from even light contact. Perosh is still the underdog in this fight by a long way, but the odds are not as wide as they were yesterday.

Rampage and couture were asked to fight?? This doesnt sound credible to me... Isnt Couture even allowed to fight again on such short notice??? Also isnt Rampage preparing for Rashad Evans?

Well, you're thread title is a little misleading MK. I thought that the UFC released him from his contract or something, not that he got a cut above his eye LMAO.

Maybe you should re-word it?

Anyway, I can't believe they actually asked Randy and Quinton to fight him. They must be desperately trying to push him out of the UFC or something, because I think both of those guys would destroy Mirko right now. Well, maybe not Quinton. We all know how he is with leg kicks and such.

Hm, those both would have been pretty interesting fights, but I think its for the best at this point for CroCop to get a no-namer to boost his confidence if nothing else. This could have been really bad news, seems like everybody is getting injured before their fights now. Its ridiculous.

He doesn't need the money. He's a member of the Croatian government, he's on a pro soccer team, has a clothing line I think, and IIRC he's still part of the Lučko Anti-Terrorist Unit, plus he's had some small movie parts.

No shit, it's like being in an abusive relationship. You keep telling yourself that it's going to get better, but it never does.
