Cro Cop returns to Zagreb and reveals what happened to Kosaka after their fight
On the first day of January, Mirko Filipović returned from Japan where he scored a new impressive win. On December 31 he defeated Tsuyoshi Kosaka via 1st round stoppage.
A soon as he got off the plane, Filipović told the media what he did as the clock struck the midnight.
“I came to my hotel room around 23.30. I was probably under the shower around midnight. The rest of my crew was in the bus,“ revealed Filipović for Večernji list daily.
But one could not say that Kosaka had the time of his life. Brutal GNP and referee’s slow reaction sent the Japanese fighter to hospital.
“He has brain concussion, but I hope he’ll be ok. The doctor told me that his orbital bone is fractured. I did not even want to mention that. Much severe injuries occur on skiing holidays,“ added Cro Cop.
This year Mirko is to step into the professional ring for the last time in his career. So far he has two more bouts with RIZIN.
Moreover, this was the first time Mirko took his son with him.
“He is very happy, it was a nice trip for him. He felt that atmosphere and adrenaline. It will be nice memories for him. And this was his first visit to Japan,“ concluded the legendary fighter.
