Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic headlined this weekend’s Legend 2, where he suffered a first round loss to Alexey Oleinik. What shocked Filipovic the most was seeing several UFC names appear at the Legend press conference.
Some of the names include Jon Jones, Frank Mir, Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum. Filipovic thinks they made the wrong choice as UFC president Dana White won’t be happy.
“I would never do it,” said Filipovic. “I would never appear at a press conference, let alone stand in front of banners that have a logo of a different organization. We all took photos together. I’m the main event. They basically came over to promote a totally new organization. Dana White is going to go mad, 100 percent, totally justifiable in my opinion.”
White hasn’t responded and it doesn’t seem anyone at the UFC is upset.
Filipovic’s UFC career ended in 2011. Since then, he’s gone 1-1 in MMA and is still very active in kickboxing.
