UFC Heavyweight Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic Pride

While Chael Sonnen and his flunked UFC 117 drug test continue to dominate the MMA headlines, the Gambling Gods would like to remind you that “UFC 119: Mir vs. Cro Cop” takes place tonight in the Hoosier State.

A heavyweight scrap between former champion Frank Mir and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic will headline the pay-per-view broadcast. Although CC suffered a last-second eye injury just before he wrapped camp, the striker was cleared earlier in the week and will be allowed to compete.

The powers that be pegged Mir a 2.5-to-1 favorite to snap Cro Cop’s two-fight winning streak and haven’t deviated too far from that number since the line first opened. The former title holder is currently listed at -260.

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will face Ryan Bader in a pivotal light heavyweight affair in the night’s co-main event.

The event will be jumping off inside Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.
