Saturday’s rematch between Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (pictured) and Gabriel Gonzaga was met with much resistance. Pretty much the only person interested in it was Filipovic because he wanted to exact revenge on the man who upset him with his own trademark head kick knockout eight years ago.
While Filipovic wasn’t able to return the favor with a head kick KO, he did manage to leave Poland with a victory and knot the score up at one apiece.
A pair of devastating standing left elbows to the dome marked the beginning of the end for Gonzaga, whose job might be in jeopardy now having lost three straight.
But the UFC can’t fire him at this point. How would they be able to arrange Cro Cop vs. Gonzaga III???
The official stoppage of the TKO came at 3:30 in the third round.
Tauron Arena in Krakow hosted the festivities.
