UFC 75: Mirko Cro Cop in the title picture with win over Cheick Kongo

Cro Cop

Quoteworthy (from UFC President Dana White):

"He [Cro Cop] made a lot of mistakes [against Gonzaga], he did not train in the cage, he let his ego get the better of him. Usually when he returns from a defeat, Mirko is very angry and good. I am convinced that we will see a completely different Cro Cop. I must admit I can hardly wait for the fight because I think it will be his first real fight since arriving in the UFC.... I still do not know who his opponent will be if he wins against Kongo, but a fight against Randy Couture for the title is possible. Anything is possible here."

PRIDE FC 2006 Open Weight Grand Prix Champion, Mirko Cro Cop Filipovic, will look to rebound from his most recent loss to Gabriel Gonzaga when he faces Cheick Kongo at UFC 75: "Champion vs. Champion" on September 8 from the O2 Arena in London, England. Cro Cop has expressed a desire to also rematch Minotauro Nogueira before his six-fight UFC contract expires (that means after the Kongo fight three remain on his current deal).
