MMA Japan – Dream 6
Tuesday September 23rd at the Saitama Super Arena, Japan, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic went toe to toe with Aistair Overeem in a Middleweight Grand Prix. This was the headlining fight for the night and many MMA fans around the world highly anticipated this match up. Cro Cop is a very popular fighter who has made a name for himself as a top level fighter with a tremendous kick that has been known to break bones.
Unfortunately, none of the MMA fans got to see Cro Cop do his thing at Dream 6. The fight was called no contest after Cro Cop took two devastating knees to the groin. While many folks say that Cro Cop was clearly losing the match, MMA is a sport where fighters can win or lose in the last seconds of the fight. Without allowing the match to run it’s full course, one can not say who would have won.
We can only hope that a rematch will be rescheduled to find out once in for all, who is a better fighter, Cro Cop or Overeem. For more details on Dream 6, check out MMAfighting.
