Mirko Cro Cop updated fans via his blog and MMA-ID account that he’s, “off to Japan” and he’ll have another announcement tomorrow once everything is finalized. He also went on to promise that he will, “have many things to say” regarding his future in fighting and that he isn’t retiring. An update to Cro Cop’s MMA career will be given on February 15th, so this leads many to believe that his announcement tomorrow will have nothing to do with his MMA career and more so to do with a possible professional wrestling job.
Cro Cop did appear on a Japanese pro wrestling show a few weeks back, so it would make some sense if that was what his announcement would be. He’s still under contract with the UFC, so its at least clear that he won’t be competing in a Japanese MMA organization like HERO’s or World Victory Road.
