Mirko Cro Cop Decisions Ray Sefo In Final Fight Main Event

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Mirko Filipovic make his Croatian and kickboxing return count today with a unanimous decision win over Ray Sefo in main event of a show dubbed "Final Fight". It clearly was not Cro Cop's final fight, but the marketing ploy seemed to work as a capacity crowd showed up to Arena Zagreb to watch their hero compete in his home country for the first time in 11 years.

The first round was a tad sloppy, which isn't that surprising considering that both guys are past their primes. Cro Cop snapped Sefo's head back with a couple of shots, but Sefo seemed to land the harder punches. Mirko took over in the second, working an inside game with uppercuts and some solid strikes. The third saw a lot of clinching and continual breaks from the referee, but Sefo still played it up with some woos and funny comments to the ref. In the end though, Filipovic took the decision in an okay but unspectacular fight.

In the co-main event, Daniel Ghita lit Sergei Laschenko up with leg and body kicks, leaving a bunch of visible red marks, before finishing him in the third round with a brutal head kick. Laschenko popped up and seemed ready to continue, but the referee wisely brought the proceedings to an end. Sergei had his moments, but he had no answer for Ghita's kicks and likely would have just gone down again if it had continued.
