Recently Mirko Filipović did an interview with Croatian TV and talked about his career and his hopes for fighting at Dream 9. The MMA News would like to thank MMA Cube for the story and for translating.
“I’m in a final stage of my career. I don’t know if that means I have 3, 5 10 or 15 fights left but I know one thing for sure – this is going to be the most productive part of my career”
“I’ve resolved in my head things that were bothering me. I had to answer the question do I still want to train so hard every day. And now I’m certain that I do. It’s not about the money anymore.”
“I’ve made enough money though out my career. I realized I don’t know how to live without fighting. And people who ask me why don’t I end my career with 35 years…well, maybe they didn’t have anything in their lives they were devoted to 100%. I’m just asking them to try to understand me, I can’t live without fighting. So please people, stop giving me advice to quit! I know one thing now, One day when I stop fighting – a part of me will certainly die.“
“My recovery is going better than any doctor expected. I believe my first fight could be on DREAM 9.”
