HOBOKEN, NJ (February 29, 2012) – FIGHT NOW TV TM – America’s only 24-hour combat sports and entertainment channel – announced today that it will air the final fight of mixed martial arts legend Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic‘s illustrious career to viewers across America on Saturday, March 10. “Cro Cop”is set to take on another kickboxing great, “Sugar” Ray Sefo, live from Filipovic’s native Croatia.

“We could not be more excited to bring this tremendous sporting event to American fans,” said Mike Garrow, GM and co-founder of FIGHT NOW TV. “Filipovic is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time and he is returning to his first love – kickboxing – for a last hurrah. ‘Cro Cop’ certainly could have chosen a much easier opponent than Sefo for his swan song, but this shows what a true warrior he is in terms of fighting a guy like Ray, who continues to be a top name on the world kickboxing scene.”

Filipovic (16-7, 11 KO), once famously describing his kicks as “right leg: hospital; left leg: cemetery”, remains a Croatian sports icon who has starred in the UFC, Pride, K-1 and Dream during his more than decade-long fight career.  He holds kickboxing victories over such notable fighters as Mike Bernardo, Jerome Le Banner, Peter Aerts, Mark Hunt, Remy Bonasky, Misashi and Sam Greco.

New Zealand native Sefo (56-21- 1, 38 KO), fighting out of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, rates as one of the premier and most recognizable kick-boxers in the world. A five-time Muay Thai world champion and eight-time K-1 World Grand Prix finalist, Sefo’s most prominent kickboxing victims also include Bernardo, Le Banner and Aerts, as well as Bob Sapp and Stephan Leko.

There will be nine other great kickboxing matchups on this once-in-a-lifetime card.  Final Fight promises to be a first-class production every step of the way with Michael Buffer serving as ring announcer, actress Jane Park as event host, and former K-1 superstar Nobuaki Kakuda as referee for this exciting night of action.

Given the interest across the United States for this highly-anticipated event, FIGHT NOW TV will be offering fans three ways to catch all the kicks, punches and knockouts that Final Fight is sure to deliver:

The foundation was especially formed to raise money and awareness for those wounded in action and their families. To date, more than 24,000 U.S. troops have been wounded in the war against terrorism, which doesn’t include the many more suffering the mental effects.

Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave men and woman from the armed forces. Even though some of these men and woman are severely injured, they have the courage, strength and determination to win this battle.

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation’s goal is to help these brave men and women fulfill any of their unmet needs as they return back to civilian life.
