Mirko CroCop signs for UFC

Recommended Posts

Reigning PRIDE Open-Weight Grand Prix champion Mirko Filipovic has apparently decided to bolster the ranks of the UFC heavyweight division, a source inside the Croatian's camp informed Sherdog.com Wednesday.

Rumors have buzzed of Filipovic's departure from PRIDE since his official Web site reported in recent days that he would not fight on the Japanese promoter's year-end card.

Filipovic, the No. 2 heavyweight in the world behind PRIDE champion Fedor Emelianenko, would make an immediate impact on a division that has long been considered among the weakest in the UFC. Terms are not known, but it's expected Fillipovic, 32, could sign one of the most expensive multi-fight deals in UFC history.

Apparently this news isnt true, heres an update.

The following is from a Croation newspaper website (translated in english):

Mirko Filipovic rejected news which hit the internet on Thursday on Sherdog.com, a famous internet site for MMA news, which said that the Croatian gladiator already signed the offer from the American organization (UFC).

"I repeat, I received an offer from the UFC and other organizations. Within these offers, I have NOT promised anyone something, nor signed any kind of agreement. I will pick the best offer, the first day I receive it. I don't know who is hiding behind 'some source within Mirko camp' because no one except me knows how I will continue my sport career."
