Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic will be fighting again on September 23 at DREAM.6. The popular Croatian, who is coming off of knee surgury, recently made the announcement in interview with Index.hr.
“My knee is excellent,” said Filipovic. “I don’t have any problems. I am in good shape and I am preparing for my next fight which will happen on September 23 for sure.
As for an opponent, it appears that Filipovic would like to settle his war of words with Alistar Overeem.
“It isn’t still confirmed, but I would like to fight against Overeem. I really don’t know why he said those kind of statements about me. I was never choosing my opponents. That kind of conversation is not my style, but I would like to say to him to save his strength for ring not for talking. I really want this fight.
