Another Change For the May 12th WEC Event
In mixed martial arts, fight cards are rarely announced right away not because promoters like to pretend they are CIA agents, but because it is frequently difficult to keep the original plans intact. LINK

Who’s The Greatest?
If 2007 has taught us anything, it’s that parity has hit the world of mixed martial arts. And it’s hit hard in a year rife with upsets, from Matt Serra’s stoppage of the seemingly unstoppable Georges St-Pierre to last weekend’s KO win by Gabriel Gonzaga over heavyweight heir apparent Mirko Cro Cop.

Is Parity Good For MMA?

Another CC interview
ZAGREB - Croatian MMA fighter in his home in Zagreb heals the consequences of his hard defeat on Saturday against the Brazilian fighter Gabriel Gonzaga at the UFC 70 in Manchester. The shocking images of Cro Cop laying in the middle of the cage fainted seemed unreal because of the reversed roles we are used to see in the last few years. Similar experience Filipovic did have against Kevin Randleman (in PRIDE) and Michael McDonald (in K-1). From both fighters he lost to a KO and both times he managed to get at the top. Al thou his charisma got seriously damaged in Manchester, Mirko is saying he has the motive and strength for a new rise to the top. Nothing is broken Are you feeling any consequences for your health? There are no headaches, nor any other visible after effects of Gonzagas high-kick. If there was no pain in my right ancle I would've been long in training by now. Because of that, there's 2 weeks of passive rest for me now. The ancle is swallen, but I think there's nothing broken because I wouldn't be able to walk in that case. Nevertheless, I'll be going to a doctor for some examinations. You were looking distracted in the ring? I was not myself against Gonzaga. I just couldn't decide to start a series of strikes, I didn't go forward. Something similar happened in my last fight against Sanchez in Las Vegas, but I managed to win that fight. These kind of things happen to me in regular intervals. Nevertheless, there's no excuse for this defeat, no alibi, nor am I seeking one. What was crucial for that kind of a lose? Gonzaga's elbow strikes in my temple were the main thing. When I stud back up, my perspective was faded and i didn't even see that high-kick. Were the preparations wrong? The preparations for the fight were perfect and that isn't the problem. Just before the fight I was in a bad mood, I couldn't focus, I fought without any strategy. What's your future in the UFC? I'll be back even stronger. This is not the time to speak of the UFC belt, but I will respect the contract to it's end. Of course, in the case there will not be any new injuries. Al thou, I don't know what could make me fight once i fulfill my contract of four more fights. When could your next fight happen? I believe I will fight at the end of August or the beginning of September. I am expecting a rematch against Gonzaga. I would like to thank everyone who came to Manchester because of me and everyone who called to express their best wishes. I had more than 200 calls and i couldn't answer them all. source: Link
