UFC 110: Mirko Cro Cop wins a bloody laugher

Mirko Cro Cop threw a punch. Anthony Perosh ate it with his face. Repeat. For two rounds.

Perosh, an Australian heavyweight, had no business being inside the Octagon with Cro Cop at UFC 110 in Australia, even if it was a last-minute replacement for Ben Rothwell.

Cro Cop opened up a massive cut on Perosh’s forehead with a vicious elbow during a ground-and-pound session late in the second round. Perosh continued to fight, but referee Herb Dean ended it before the third round started.

Cro Cop dominated Perosh and looked good doing it, but a Honda Civic looks good in a Toyota Prius car lot.
