According to Graciemag, Mirko Cro Cop will possibly take on UFC heavyweight up and comer Junior dos Santos at UFC 103 on Sept. 19th in Dallas, TX.

It was reported earlier that Dos Santos was removed from his UFC 102 fight with Justin McCully with no reason given. We know why.

“I think I’ll fight September 19. They took me off the August 29 show …. My opponent’s changed. I’ll probably face Cro Cop. If I beat him I’ll be in really good standing. If that’s truly the case, I’m guaranteed on the main card and in the main event of the evening. If I were to fight now it wouldn’t be on the main card,”

“To me it’s incredible. When they asked me if they could change the fight date I was a bit bothered, because I wanted to fight right away. I’ve been away for some time now. But the Fertitta brothers asked me and I accepted. After that I found out it would be against Cro Cop and was overjoyed. It’ll be a big opportunity in my career. Lots of good things have happened in my life and this is one more. I’m going to make the most of it,”
