MMA Quick Quote: Cro Cop ready for revenge, possible groin shot

I accept what happened at DREAM 6. A disqualification win would have meant nothing. I do not need such a victory. But next time he better not hit me close to my genitals. If he tries it again, I will pay him back with the same measure. And I'll do it deliberately, with no hesitation. Mixed martial arts is a brutal sport, but there are certain rules that should be respected. I've respected them my whole career, as have my opponents. I'm not going to cry over spilled milk. I will have my revenge at the DREAM tournament on December 31 against Overeem.

-Former UFC and PRIDE heavyweight Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic talks to his native about the No Contest decision at DREAM 6 against Alistair Overeem. "Demolition Man" delivered several illegal groin strikes during their heavyweight bout, providing a disappointing conclusion to a fight that had received much interest and fanfare leading up to it. Cro Cop hopes to deliver what was promised with a rematch on December 31.
