Now that it has been CONFIRMED the heavyweight clash between former champ Frank Mir and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic will in fact go down Saturday at UFC 119, the world’s biggest MMA promotion wasted no time in releasing the extended trailer to help hype the pay-per-view broadcast.
Cro Cro submitted Pat Barry in his last Octagon appearance at UFC 115. CC, who was once considered one of the sport’s deadliest strikers, has since recruited Barry’s services to help him get back to the land of the elites.
Mir was thrashed by Shane Carwin the last time he took the stage. While he temporarily danced with the idea of dropping to the 205-pound division, he opted to remain in the class where he’s a multi-time champ.
There was a brief scare over the weekend that the bout was in jeopardy, however Cro Cop and his battered eye were medically cleared by physicians on Tuesday.
UFC 119 takes place inside the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The show marks the organization’s debut in the Hoosier state.
