Desription .........  Mirko Filipovic is a fierce MMA competitor, former member of Croatia’s Anti Terrorist Group ATJ Lucko, and a former member of the Croatian Parliament. Filipovic has achieved considerable success in the M-1 and PRIDE franchises, gaining notable MMA victories with his considerable skills, perhaps most notably a devastating KO inducing head kick. Filipovic has also built an impressive kickboxing record in the World Grand Prix, Fukuoka Grand Prix, and others.

Filipovic’s kickboxing career began while he was working as a commando in the Alpha unit of the Croatian police force, and at the age of 21 he joined the K-1 World Grand Prix Competition defeating Jerome LeBanner, but being defeated by Ernesto Hoost in the next round. In his five years with the K-1 franchise, Filipovic scored a string of victories, only to switch to the PRIDE franchise in 2001 to achieve further MMA dominance. A year later he quit his job on the terrorist unit to devote his energies to fighting. After five years of amassing another string of victories at PRIDE, Filipovic fought three times with UFC, only to sign with DREAM franchise, defeating Tatsuya Mizuno with a TKO by punches in the first round in March 2008. Filipovic, who left the UFC after what he calls a “bad period,” has said he prefers fighting in the ring over cage fighting. Interestingly, most of Filipovic’s relatively few losses have come as he pursued championships. MMA Worldwide Magazine has included Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic in their roster of top ten heavyweights (Issue 9, 2008.) Cro Cop’s MMA include those over Josh Barnett, Mark Coleman, Kazuyuki Fujita, Kevin Randleman, Kazushi Sakuraba, and Wanderlei Silva. Filipovic’s kickboxing victories include those over Peter Aerts, Mike Bernardo, Remy Bonjanksi, Jerome LeBanner, Mark Hunt, and Sam Greco.
