Mirko Crocop is off to Japan. With a more than dissapointing UFC bouts, Dana White let Mirko Crocop out of his contract. It seems Mirko has not thrown out the idea of fighting in the cage again. Even throwing out a challenge to Kongo on his website blog (mirko-crocop.com).
After being let out of the UFC contract Mirko signed with DREAM, a new fighting organization, for 3 fights with a possibility for extensions. Crocop seems to be really happy to be back in Japan. He seems to be more mentally prepared now then he did when he fought for the UFC. Mirko's first fight will be on March 15th.
