UFC 67: Cro Cop won't attend pre-fight pressconference

New, comments

Cro Cop
The UFC debut of Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic continues to be shrouded in mystery.

According to FightNetwork.com, the Croatian superstar will not participate in the pre-fight press conference and will only make an obligatory appearance at the UFC 67 weigh-ins on Friday prior to his bout with Eddie Sanchez the following day.

Ever since the UFC lured him away from PRIDE with a six-fight, two-year contract late last year, Cro Cop has yet to be make any significant appearances or public comments (to American media, anyway).

Aside from heaping praise from Joe Rogan and Dana White on television — and a nice article from Thomas Gerbasi the other day — the Cro Cop coverage has been virtually nonexistent.

I understand that he'll do all the talking he needs to do inside the Octagon. And, he doesn't have the greatest media track record.

It still doesn't make sense.
