PostSubject: Cro Cop: Training secrets revealed for UFC 75 Kongo fight!   Wed 08 Aug 2007, 3:50 pm



Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic rededicated himself to training after the vicious knockout loss he suffered at the expense of Gabriel Gonzaga’s right foot during their heavyweight match at UFC 70: “Nations Collide” back in April.

He bought a cage to practice the various nuances, invited former UFC fighters and others to share their experiences, and stepped up his daily regimen — all to prepare for Cheick Kongo at UFC 75: “Champion vs. Champion” on September 8.

His only day of rest? Sunday, according to a recent training schedule that was possibly leaked by a Polish Web site and has been translated by FightNetwork.com.

Here’s a day in the life of the feared Croatian striker:

Monday
Morning: 4-5 km run, stretching
Afternoon: Warm-up, sparring or bag/mitt work, grappling

Tuesday
Morning: Weights and low intensity Brazilian jiu-jitsu
Afternoon: Warm-up, sparring or bag/mitt work, grappling

Wednesday
Morning: Low intensity runs, sometimes basketball

Thursday:
Morning: 4-5 km run, stretching
Afternoon: Warm-up, sparring or bag/mitt work, grappling

Friday
Morning: weights, low intensity Brazilian jiu-jitsu
Afternoon: Warm-up, sparring or bag/mitt work, grappling

Saturday
Morning: Running or low intensity workout with weights

Sunday:
Rest

There’s more:

On sparring days, Cro Cop will combine both stand-up and ground elements for at least 1 round Warm-ups generally take about 30 minutes and consist of strength exercises, shadow boxing, as well as standing wrestling and takedown defense drills.

Most days, Cro Cop will run at about 60 percent intensity
Weight training sessions are 40 minutes without any breaks, 8-15 reps in a set Look out Kongo … seems like Filipovic is out for some serious redemption.
