Former PRIDE open-weight GP winner, Mirko Cro Cop has promised he has some new techniques up his sleeve when he faces kickboxer, Pat Barry at UFC 115 in Vancouver, Canada on June 12th, 2010.
Cro Cop, speaking via Croatian site Nokaut, said:
“Well we are working hard on just about every part of the game. After so many years in this sport some things need improvements but some are good as they are. I’ll always be more comfortable with striking, but I do a lot of ground work, takedowns/throws and other stuff. You can expect some new exciting techniques from me, that’s for sure.”
“The competition is really strong nowadays. These young lions are talented, well rounded and hungry, what makes them dangerous… Barry is young but very talented, I’ve seen his fights. I need this win as it’s important for my future in UFC. It should be a good fight, I’m sure that we’ll deliver an action-packed fight.”
