    Branko Cikatic "Croatian Tiger" ended up in hospital few months ago due to pulmonary embolism, sepsis. In hospital he developed severe hospital bacteria and decubitus wounds that did not heal yet therefore physical rehabilitation is impossible until Branko's condition is stabilised engouh to return home. With funds raised his family will have a chance to improve his medical condition and possibly bring him home where he would have full medical care and assistance.

    Damn

    That sucks. Him and Bob Sapp are the only people to stop Ernesto Hoost twice.

    Helluva right hook

    I was a mod at K-1 fans since idk '03 or something,so obviously I watched a lot of his fights.It's not a good time to say anything negative and I hope he gets better but I won't be contributing.It is nice that people can get together and help people.

    Awesome fighter. I thought him and Mirko were friends? Hopefully Cro Cop or someone can help out.

    He was Mirkos first big-time coach. I think he had more success in K-1 too

    I know exactly what you mean, I'm Croatian and I've heard rumors about him from back in the day. Not a good person outside the ring, and it was reflected inside too. Have no ill will against the man, but I won't be contributing either. Karma moves in two directions, if we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness... If we act non-virtuously, suffering results.

    Edit: Don't get me wrong, hope he gets well tho.

    Fair point, I don't really.

    Fun Fact: there was a rumor circling for ages that Branko ordered a hit on CroCop, although later debunked after it was confirmed as a blatant slander in court by one of Branko's ex-employees from Tigar-Cikatic Security. Branko spent 3 months in prison for it, among other accusations. T'was one of those great stories from the underground. I miss those times. They were ruthless, but magical.

    I don't like him one bit. I wish him well though.
    We have free health care. I don't know why is this even a thing.

    I remember his bizarre MMA fight with Mark Kerr, best of luck to Branko with getting healthy.

    bizarre was his blatant fouling. He was one of the dirtiest fighters in K1. This was the only time I really saw Mark Kerr furious. Without the ref he would have punched Cikatic into a corpse that day.
    He always gave away a criminal vibe in my view. Would be really strange why there are so many bad stories about him ( and only him ) when nothing is true (his words).

    Good luck to him. It is kind of sad how bad fighters are in general at managing money.
