Mirko “Cro Cop” may have had his fans on the edge of their seats for much of yesterday’s main event, but in the end, the legendary fighter pulled out one of his most memorable victories to date.
If you missed UFC Fight Night 64, or haven’t heard, Gabriel Gonzaga appeared to be cruising to victory after the bout’s first two rounds. Gonzaga took “Cro Cop” down a couple of times, and the latter ate some heavy shots. In round three, however, the feared striker sent Gonzaga staggering to the mat with a couple of elbows, and then finished the deal with several more.
It was a huge win for the 40 year-old, not only because he lost to Gonzaga once before, but because “Cro Cop” had lost his last three, UFC fights.
The Croatian star conducted a backstage interview with the promotion afterwards, which you can watch below.
