(‘You think I read book, but really in here is nudie magazine.’)
Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic has had knee surgery and will soon be ready to kick asses and heads once more, though not necessarily in that order. Now that this lingering problem is fixed we ought to find out if Cro Cop’s recent decline was really due to injuries, or if he’s just losing his touch. Call me an optimist, but I’m hoping it’s the former.
According to internet rumors, Cro Cop may be headed back to the UFC for the summer event in Germany, or FEG may still be courting him, hoping for a K-1 match with Alistair Overeem and a few more fights in Dream down the road. That’s all just speculation, though, so don’t get too worked up just yet. It’s like that old saying: If you want to make God laugh, tell Him Cro Cop’s plans.
In case you’re curious, the book he’s reading appears to be entitled “Secret Societies.” Anybody else reads that book, I chalk it up to intellectual curiosity. But when Cro Cop reads it, I can only assume that he’s doing research for when he infiltrates the Croatian version of the Skull and Bones to take them down from the inside as revenge for killing his brother. Anyone else smell a plot for an awesome action movie here?
