UFC 137 Results: Roy Nelson Win Will Send Mirko Cro Cop into Retirement

Mick Akers@@mickakersAnalyst IOctober 29, 2011

Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic may be in the last fight of his long MMA career, as a hungry Roy Nelson will look to end his struggle against the 10-year MMA vet in UFC 137 on Saturday night.

Nelson is coming into UFC 137 on a two-fight losing streak and cannot afford another loss, as he may be ousted from the UFC with a loss to Cro Cop.

Cro Cop is just 2-3 in his last five fights, losing his last two fights by way of knockout, and seems to be far past his prime in the Octagon.

Cro Cop has enjoyed a fair amount of success during his MMA career, and it will all come to an end with a loss, sadly.

The former Croatian cop—yes that's where his nickname "Cro Cop" comes from—had a good tenure in the UFC but saw his best fighting days in the Pride FC's earlier in his career.

With Cro Cop knowing this is his final match in the Octagon, Nelson has more on the line in this fight, and he will come out with more to prove in their match on Saturday night, sending Cro Cop out of the MMA world on a sour note.
