Cro Cop Strikes Again!
It was a successful comeback from Mirko Cro Cop who improved his UFC record to 2-2 now. After six months of being away from fighting Mirko offered a good fight and knocked his opponent Mostapha Al Turk out in the first round.
Midway through the round, Cro Cop pounced, hurting Al Turk and sending him sprawling across the Octagon. After a brief reprieve, Al Turk caught an inadvertent poke in the eye and turned his back on Cro Cop. The former PRIDE standout didnít let Al Turk off the hook, and a flurry of thudding shots brought referee Dan Miragliotta in to halt the fight at the 3:06 mark.
ďIím sorry,Ē said Cro Cop of the eye poke. ďI didnít want it to be this way.Ē
The win ups Cro Copís record to 25-6-2 with 1 NC.
