Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, in an interview with Fighters Only, has announced that he intends to retire in 2009, but expects to return to the UFC for one final fight before calling it quits.

“I believe that during 2009 I will fight three more times for Dream, then I hope for a farewell fight in the UFC,” said Cro Cop.

The former PRIDE and UFC heavyweight was last in action on New Year’s Eve, defeating Hong Man Choi via first-round TKO to extend his unbeaten streak to three-straight fights.

Filipovic will soon undergo surgery on his injured knee that is expected to prevent him from returning until the second-half of 2009.
