Dana White confirmed on ESPNews yesterday that Mirko Cro Cop will be taking on Cheick Kongo at UFC 75 on September 8 in London.
I believe this is a great matchup for Cro Cop in what could prove to be a very exciting fight. Both have similar styles since each are strikers. However, Cro Cop is the more dangerous striker of the two.
I get the feeling that the UFC is trying to set up a win for Cro Cop here so that he can be put in a position to fight for the UFC heavyweight title in his next bout.
