Report: Cro Cop Close To Signing With DREAM

Mirko Cro Cop’s Josh Gross has an update on the Cro Cop situation.

According to several sources I spoke with, Mirko Filipovic is close to finalizing a three-fight deal with Real Entertainment, the production company that runs Dream events for FEG. We can get deep into the weeds with this stuff, but the bottom line is the Croatian is more valuable to Japanese promoters than he is to anyone else. Cro Cop’s agent, Ken Imai, has longstanding ties to the old Pride executives who populate Real Entertainment, and all signs point toward Filipovic ending his career in front of the large, quiet crowds in Saitama, Japan.

Basically, if Cro Cop hasn’t already signed with DREAM, it looks like he probably will.

By the way, for those of you enjoyed listening to Gross on The Sherdog Radio Network, he’s doing his Gross Point Blank podcast again on
