The official results from UFC 67 Weight Ins:
Eddie Sanchez 229 lbs (104 kgs) vs Mirko Cro Cop 223 lbs (101 kgs).
Mirko's latest UFC interview:
"I received an invitation from the UFC and decided to accept it. I'ts a big challenge for me, I had so many fight in Japan and I wanted to change the place of fighting, the ring. It's the octagone-cage now, something new, that's what I needed actually.
I wish to fight PRIDE rules. I don't like to think too much - is this allowed, is this legal or not legal, will I be punished or taken some points etc. PRIDE allows more of course, but on the other side this is good for fighter's protection and I support it.
Eddie Sanchez is a good fighter without any loss, he showed guts and courage for accepting this fight and I repect him. I'll do my best in the fight.
This is a new market for me, but I believe that UFC fans have heard of me, watched some of my fights too, and I'm sure that I'm going to have many fans here."
