Following his disqualification win over Alistair Overeem at DREAM.6, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic commented on the stoppage of the fight:
“I'm angry it ended this way, it seemed as if he was the dominant one, however i wasn't in trouble for a second and was waiting for my opportunities. I prepared very well because i thought the match could last a while. I thought i would knock him down in the end”
The fight was stop after Overeem kneed Cro Cop in the nuts twice (three times but the ref seen two) and was unable to continue. The ringside doctor felt as though it would not be safe for the former Pride Grand Prix winner to continue.
