MMAScoops.com has learned exclusively that Mirko 'Crocop' Filipovic successfully went through surgery which involved straightening his nasal cartilage on Sept. 28. Ever since his debut in UFC, his cartilage has been twisted, which prevented him from breathing properly, thus, 'Crocop' always fought with his mouthpiece slightly out of his mouth................

LOL true enough bud, makes me wish even more that Kongo had let his HANDS go more tho!

They are going to release CC of his contract i think, im not bothered about seeing him fight again cos its clear he isnt the fighter he was, he doesnt care enough, he doesnt love mma, he isnt a fighter thru and thru yaknow, they are going to waste a lot of money (even tho they can afford it easily) to let him fight the other 3 fights at something like $150,000 a pop!

if CCfights again he is going fight someone new to the UFC, i dont see the UFC having him fight a top HW, they are going try and build him back up if anything imo, i think a fight with fank mir would be good to because mir is a ok name and he can be KO, and CC is only 1 KO before everone starts to say ''he's back''

He's had this deviated septum for a few years. He was suposed to have the surgery when he had his foot surgery after the OWGP. He felt it didn't effect his breathing that much so he didn't have it.
