Complete head smack moment ahead. Index.hr has reported that Mirko Cro Cop has suffered a serious eye injury he received in training and may not be able to headline UFC 119 against Frank Mir. Yes, the worst thing that could possibly happen to UFC 119 just happened. Here’s an excerpt from the sports news site.
Mirko Filipovic may have suffered a serious eye injury in his last training session before flying to Indianapolis.
Sources close to the team claim the injury is of a serious nature and could put his UFC 119 with Frank Mir in jeopardy. Cro Cop has allegedly seen by a series of specialist and it’s still unclear whether or not he will travel to the United States for the bout.
His flight to Indianapolis is scheduled for Sunday, six days before the bout with Mir.
Jokes on us, it looks like the MMA world has been trolled. Index.hr falsely reported that Mirko Cro Cop is injured and apparently Pat Barry called to check on him. Looks like he’s ok.
