Croatian news sources are reporting that Mirko “Cro Cop” has suffered a severe gash above his eyeline during a sparring session with his partner Sasa Mucnjak. According to these sources Cro Cop required stitches, and has refused to drop from the UFC 110 fight against his opponent Anthony Perosh.
This news comes just a few hours after Mirkos’ original opponent former IFL champ, “Big Ben” Rothwell had to drop from the bout due to an illness.
The UFC has yet to issue a statement on the matter, and so far it seems the fight will still happen at UFC 110.
