Mirko Filipovic was born September 1974 in Privlaka, Croatia.
Raised in a working-class family, Mirko quickly realized hard work could be the key to his success.
As a young boy, Mirko’s desire to be the best was unmatched. His training regimen took place in the family barn where he used crude implements in place of gym equipment.
Metal scraps from the railway served as weights and his punching bag was filled with cotton and sand.
Every evening, as darkness fell, the thuds from Mirko’s repeated kicks against a wall could be heard throughout the village – for hours. This routine resulted in a friend having to repair the wall every few weeks, as the concrete blocks inevitably came loose.
From humble beginnings, Mirko established himself as a key member of Croatia’s Special Police Forces. Even more impressively, he rose to the apex of the Mixed Martial Arts world.
Cro Cop is widely considered to be one of the most decorated champions the sport has ever seen.
