On this day in MMA history, legendary fighter Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic picked up an impressive 1st round TKO win 12 years ago at Pride 27.

The win for Cro Cop came by way of soccer kick, and was just Cro Cop’s 11th professional fight. It extended his professional record to 8-1-2. In addition, it put Cro Cop back in the win column after losing his Pride Conflict 2003 interim heavyweight championship fight against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the bout prior.

While the UFC recently booked an event in Croatia, Cro Cop will not be coming out of retirement for it, and is currently suspended due to a failed drug test.
