The following post was made by Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic in response to recent dispariging comments directed at him by Alistair Overeem:
Hi everyone, today I can take a bit more of free time so I’m here with you to share my thoughts and give you a little insight to my current trainings and career status.
Good news first. I’m very satisfied with my recovery and I’m back to my usual training regiment. I feel no pain and everything looks perfect so far. I’m training hard, really hard, as I feel I have a lot more to prove. First to myself, but to army of my loyal fans as well! I had no summer break, I’m 100% focused on getting back on track and I can promise you many great things from Cro Cop.
Regarding September 23, I’m expect to fight, but nothing is still officially confirmed. I leave this to DREAM and I have no doubt that I’ll be there on that card, fighting whoever they put me against. I’m hoping to face a top ranked fighter, preferably Alistair Overeem. I’m familiar with his latest interviews and many people already asked me what do I think about his words. I don’t like commenting other fighters, it’s not my thing.
But Alistair, you should save your strength for a real fight, because it’s coming. When I see you in the opposite corner, then I’ll talk.
I’m off to my hometown to visit my familly and friends, since it’s an Assumption Day in Croatia and I took a day off. On Monday I resume my preparations for September and expect some exclusive materials from my trainings here on www.mma-id.com soon!
