Legendary Croatian mixed martial artist Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipović, who will step out of retirement to fight in Tokyo in September, will say thank you to fans for their support with a generous gesture…

Cro Cop, who announced his retirement earlier this year, will fight at the Saitama Arena in Tokyo on 25 September 2016 and he is giving the opportunity for two of his fans to join him on a once in a lifetime trip.

Filipović wants to thank his fans for their support over his illustrious career, which saw him become the second fighter in the world to win mixed martial arts and kickboxing championships (2006 Pride Open-Weight Grand Prix and the 2012 K-1 World Grand Prix). He will give two of his fans an opportunity to join him, all expenses paid, in Japan. He made the announcement on Facebook.


“Dear friends,

Only way to give back all that love is with good results and good fights.
