Scott Coker Addresses Controversy Around Mirko Cro Cop Signing
On March 5, Bellator MMA announced that Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic would take on Roy Nelson at the fight promotion’s 200th event on May 25 in London.
In September 2016, not yet a year into his two-year suspension, Cro Cop signed with the Japanese fight promotion Rizin.
On March 9, Bellator MMA president Scott Coker was in attendance for BAMMA 34 in London and was asked about Filipovic’s signing and his USADA issues.
At the end of the day, if you really wanted to enforce it you should have enforced it two years ago when Mirko fought in Japan,” said Coker.
