Mirko Cro Cop vs Roy Nelson odds for UFC 137 fight on Oct. 29

Crocop-nelson_medium

Former PRIDE superstar Mirko Filipovic will return to the cage this Saturday night (Oct. 29, 2011) in a heavyweight battle against portly power puncher Roy Nelson on the main card of UFC 137: "Penn vs. Diaz" in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Win or lose, this is expected to be the last appearance of Filipovic as a UFC fighter.

The Croatian cop was put to sleep by division prospect Brendan Schaub at UFC 128 earlier this year, which was the second time he's gone limp in as many fights. Factoring in his age and declining abilities, the oddsmakers have pegged him a +230 underdog for the "Sin City" pay-per-view.

Can he get one more highlight reel stoppage from his vaunted left high kick before calling it quits for good?

Like Filipovic, Nelson has struggled against the upper echelon of the division in recent fights, losing back-to-back unanimous decisions to Junior dos Santos at UFC 117 and Mir at UFC 130.

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Champion started his Zuffa career with two straight knockout wins, but may find himself looking for employment elsewhere is he's unable to overcome "Cro Cop" this weekend.

Still, his grappling pedigree and powerful right hand have given him the role of favorite at -270.
