(A Croat, an asshole and a Brazilian walk into a bar…)
Frank Mir weighed in 25 pounds heavier than opponent, Cro Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic at today’s UFC 119 weigh-ins, dispelling any rumors that he is over his loss to Brock Lesnar and he will drop to light heavyweight any time soon.
Making weight, Filipovic got the final stamp on his Indianapolis fight license, which made him breathe a sigh of relief after an eye injury he sustained earlier this week in training left the bout in jeopardy.
Shortly after he weighed in, Croatian news outlets who had been asked by the fighter to not release the photo until after he was given the go-ahead to face mir by the commission printed this shot of Mirko’s injury taken immediately after the eye poke occurred.
Amazing how much he has healed in less than five days.
(Amazing what the power of Stevia can do for healing.)
Every fighter on the card checked in at their respective weight limits, thus making all of their fights official for tomorrow night.
Check out the official weights and the replay of the weigh-ins after the jump.
