Heavyweight veteran Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic is ready to return to UFC action in February after recovering from a last-minute knockout to Frank Mir in September that ended their lackluster UFC 119 headliner.
“Finally, I should be okay now,” Cro Cop said in a video on his official website. “I invested a lot in training and therapy and I think 2011 will be my year, better than 2006 [when he won PRIDE’s open weight grand prix with wins over Wanderlei Silva and Josh Barnett].
“I have two options for February. Which one it will be I don’t know, but for sure I will be fighting that month.”
