Mirkos manager Ken Imai:
"In japan the press concferences are often helt in front of the fans. For all of them, Mirkos appearance was a very emotional experience."
"Only 3 hours before the conference we recieved a letter from the UFC president Dana White, were it was confirmed that UFC are willing to break the contract with Mirko under one condition, that Mirko returns to the UFC when hes ready"
And Mirko wants to, he confirmed it himself to us, return to the UFC.
"I will continue to train in the cage that i have in my gym, cause im going back to the UFC. I went because i couldnt wait anymore. I asked to fight as soon as possible, on the 1 of March, but they offered my to fight in may or later. I wantet a rematch with Gonzaga in Zagreb (capital of Croatia), but he lost to Werdum and it therefore never happened. Im in great shape, I have bulked up, I way 105 kg and I want to fight as soon as possible."
And if he wants to fight again as soon as possible (UFC), he will need to finish his new contract without a mistake.
"Mirko is not allowed to loose. After 3 wins all the doors will be open"
Amongst the wishes will certainly be a rematch with Fedor, but he will have to fight like thunder from 15 of March if he wants to deserve that fight.
Mirko knows that a lot of people will say that hes running from the octagon.
"In my last 2 fights i mentally blocked. Before the fights i was empty, depressive and I hated myself"
CC wants to fight in the UK again:
"im sorry for dissapointing my engslish fans who recieved my as a king. And therfore i want to fight in front of them again. I cant go back in time, but my time will come again"
