Mirko Filipovic may have suffered a serious eye injury in his last training session before flying to Indianapolis.

Sources close to the team claim the injury is of a serious nature and could put his UFC 119 with Frank Mir in jeopardy. Cro Cop has allegedly seen by a series of specialist and it's still unclear whether or not he will travel to the United States for the bout.

His flight to Indianapolis is scheduled for Sunday, six days before the bout with Mir.

Dana just denied the rumor via twitter. also saw that Pat Barry called Mirko and Pat said he's fine. is it just me or does it seem like a false report of an injury to Cro Cop happens before every time he fights recently?

From BJ Penn's site...

UPDATE: At this moment in time additional reports are surfacing that this rumor is infact false. Sherdog sites, stating that they were present during Mirko's last day of training and that no injury took place. However the media outlet reporting the original rumor is and they are a very reliable source of news inside Croatia.

All I have to say is THANK GOD. The thought of a Mir/Beltran or Mir/Meathead fight makes me want to puke.
