Mirko Cro Cop will announce his arrival to K-1 tomorrow


That’s the scoop according to one Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer:

Reports from Japan, as well as a web site post by Mirko Cro Cop both state Cro Cop will be in Japan tomorrow for a press conference put on by Fighting Entertainment Group (K-1), which will announce the debut of a new MMA promotion to take the place of its Hero’s division.

Cro Cop was the most popular foreign MMA fighter in Japan when he signed a six-fight deal at the end of 2006 with UFC. After going 1-2 in UFC, it was known UFC was considering cutting him from the deal due to the high cost of his contract.

Wow. Not too long ago there was talk about Mirko as the future UFC heavyweight champion. A lackluster debut, a head kick that will live in infamy, and a poor performance in a loss kinda brings you back down to earth, doesn’t it?

Whether it’s deserved or not, Mirko will undoubtedly go down as a guy who couldn’t cut it in the UFC and that’s exactly how Dana White will spin this one.
