Mirko Cro Cop: 'It's not Fedor's job to act like my mother'
(mmafighting.com)
Together, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Fedor Emelianenko were once counted among the most feared and sought-after professional fighters on the planet. The two legendary figures, along with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, ruled the roost in Pride FC's premier heavyweight division throughout the early 2000's, and even collided in mid-2005 for what many to believe to be one of the most-anticipated heavyweight fights in MMA history at Pride Final Conflict. Of course much has changed in the years since. Emelianenko is retired, while Filipovic has turned his gaze back toward kickboxing in preparation for his GLORY debut this Saturday at GLORY 14. Yet Emelianenko was present for Filipovic's most recent foray into MMA -- a disappointing first-round submission loss to now-UFC heavyweight Oleksiy Oliynyk in October -- and the generally reserved Russian came away from the experience with some harsh criticism for his former Pride running mate. Following Filipovic's loss, Emelianenko remarked to Russian media that something inside the Croatian "broke," and that he did not "have either the physical condition or mental attitude" and was "not the same fighter as he was before." Not surprisingly, Filipovic did not appreciate the sentiment.

Matt Brown vs. Erick Silva headlines UFC Fight Night in Cincinnati
(msn.foxsports.com)
The UFC's return to Cincinnati now has a main event pitting hometown favorite Matt Brown against Brazilian striker Erick Silva in a five round headline fight taking place May 10 at the U.S. Bank Arena. UFC officials confirmed the fight with FOX Sports on Monday. Matt Brown (18-11) returns to action following a back injury that sidelined him at the close of 2013 while riding a six-fight win streak in the welterweight division. The Ohio native expressed interest in possibly headlining the card in Cincinnati since he hails from the Buckeye state and now he'll get his wish as he continues his climb up the rankings. Long term, Brown wants to fight for the UFC welterweight title so he's not going to put extra pressure on himself headlining a hometown card.
