Review: 2014-12-31, pretty good finish but the rest of the fight was boring: the second fight between Mirko Filipovic and Satoshi Ishii gets two stars. The black belt in tae-kwon-do and former K-1 and Pride champion Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic entered this fight with a professional mma record of 29-11-2 (90% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.38 heavyweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in his only fight of 2013, against Alexey Oleinik (=Filipovic vs Oleinik); after this bout he has fought just once beating Satoshi Ishii in their first fight (tko – doctor stoppage, Ishii vs Filipovic).
His opponent, the 2008 judo Olympic heavyweight gold medalist Satoshi Ishii, has an official record of 12-3-1 (42% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.45. Filipovic vs Ishii 2, main event of “IGF – Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014”, is valid for the IGF heavyweight title (Filipovic’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
