Mixed Martial Arts Legend Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic has taken to his personal website to announce his UFC return.
This confirmation comes on the heels of a previously ran ‘Rumor Report’ on BJPENN.COM, earlier today.
Cro Cop last saw action under the UFC banner in a losing effort to Roy Nelson back in 2011. He has since gone 3-1 outside the promotion.
The signing is likely a counter-measure by the UFC to ensure Bellator MMA didn’t follow through with their threats of signing Filopovic.
