Mirko Cro Cop possibly out of UFC 119 main event vs. Frank Mir

Former PRIDE open-weight grand prix winner, Mirko Cro Cop may not get a chance to fight Frank Mir at UFC 119, after it was announced that the Croatian must pass a stringent eye examination conducted by the Indiana State Athletic Commission.

According to a report by Fighters Only Magazine, a photo sent by Cro Cop shows his eye and face were clearly bloodied, swollen and injured.

Cro Cop has since been advised by his doctor to rest up for a minimum of two weeks but the Croatian refused, not wanting to let his fans down who had already bought tickets.
