UFC 119: Mir vs. Cro Cop was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on September 25, 2010, at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States.[4] The event was the first that the UFC hosted in Indiana.

Background[edit]

On August 15, 2010, Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira had to pull out of his bout with Frank Mir due to an injury that will require surgery. It later was reported to be a recurring hip injury.[5] Mirko Cro Cop replaced Nogueira in the main event.[6][7] The Mir/Nogueira was rescheduled and took place at UFC 140 in December 2011.

Aaron Riley was expected to face UFC newcomer Pat Audinwood at this event, but Riley was forced from the card with an injury and was replaced by Thiago Tavares.[8][9]

UFC 119 featured preliminary fights live on Spike TV and ESPN UK.
