Cro Cop Confirmed For UFC 119 After Doc Visit

With only four days until the curtain is drawn on UFC 119, the world’s biggest MMA promotion has finally confirmed main event fighter Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and his battered eye have been medically cleared to participate in this Saturday’s showdown with Frank Mir.

Here is the UFC’s official press release:

“Legendary Croatian striker Mirko Cro Cop has been examined by an ophthalmologist in Indianapolis, site of Saturday’s UFC 119 event at Conseco Fieldhouse, and has been medically cleared to compete in the main event this weekend against former two-time heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

Cro Cop suffered a poke in the eye in the last round of his final sparring session for the bout last week, but after a few days of rest, he is in tip top shape for this pivotal battle of heavyweight contenders.”
