Former UFC heavyweight Mirko Cro Cop wonhis opening bracket of the K-1 World MAX 2012 World Championship Tournament Final 16 in Tokyo as well.

The head kick legend was sucker punched midway through the bout with Randy Blake after going in for an embrace midway through the round.
I’ve included a GIf of the incident below for the impatient but you can find the full video of the fight on page 2.
