The Real Baddest Man On The Planet

April 20, 2007 – 12:15 am by Ryan Phillips

The video above is of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovich, in all likelihood, the most frightening human on the planet. I don’t know if it’s his expressionless gaze, dull, lifeless eyes, Damon Bailey-esque buzzcut, or the fact that he could kill me with his bare hands (and probably enjoy it) but the dude is scary.

Cro Cop is slated to fight Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 70 “Nations Collide” this Saturday, at 9 p.m. on Spike TV – yes you can watch it for free. The winner of that fight will be given a title shot against UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture on August 25. It will be Cro Cop’s second UFC fight, after demolishing the previously unbeaten Eddie Sanchez at just 4:33 into the first round back in February.

Want to know why we love this guy? Well, as if that video wasn’t enough, here’s some background on him. He’s 32-years-old, is a former commando for the Croatian Police anti-terrorist unit, was elected to a seat in the Croatian Parliament in November 2003, his left kicks have been know to snap ribs and break jaws, he was even signed by the Croatian soccer team HNK Cibalia in 2005. He won the 2006 PRIDE Fighting Open-weight Grand Prix, though truthfully, we have no idea what that means. We’re assuming it just reaffirms the fact that he’s good at what he does. Oh yeah, and he also tends to beat the ever-lovin’ piss out of everyone he faces.

Still not convinced? Go here, here and here – the last one is my personal favorite. Or you could just tune in to Spike TV on Saturday night and see what you think. We predict something badass will happen.

  2. Got here from WL. Great site. You’ve been bookmarked.

    Cro-Cop is a bad mofo, but the Pride Heavyweight Champion, Fedor Emelianenko, is, I believe, the one guy on the planet that can kick the living dog shit out of at least 6.6 billion other people. And a few other animals as well. Plus, he beat Cro-Cop in 2005.

  3. Cro Cop is a bad mofo, but Fedor is undoubtedely the baddest man in the freaking universe. Let’s hope to see him kick ass soon.

  4. Isn’t this guy pretty much the reason why the UFC bought Pride?

  6. Fedor’s beaten Cro Cop before. The only fight Fedor has lost was due to a cut. He hasn’t been submitted, nor has he been knocked out. Fedor is like the real-life Bill Brassky.

    I heard Fedor once knocked out a bear, then went to the bear’s house and ravished Mrs. Bear. Nine months later, she gave birth…to a Black Eagle Tank!

  9. The difference between Fedor and Mirko is that Fedor has never won a match by KO. Mirko will beat the crap out of you, Fedor will pin your ass and make you submit.

  10. Don’t say that to big PRIDE fans! They’ll tell you of his falls over there, namely to Fedor.

  11. No doubt. Here’s an over-the-hill Randleman taking care of him:

  12. Yeah Randleman caught him with a great punch and Fedor is insane, but I’ll watch a Cro Cop fight before anyone else. Fedor is more of a submission guy, and though he’s amazing, Cro Cop just tries to kill people. Though I’m in awe of Fedor’s skills, for my money, Cro Cop’s fights are far more entertaining.
