Cro Cop Ready To Make A Last Run At UFC Title

Cro Cops back in the UFC and talking on Mustapha Al Turk at UFC 99 in Germany. Dana White has publicly stated that we will likely see this fight televised on the UFC 99 PPV next month. I guess the big question is, will the old Cro Cop show up, or will we witness a last ditch effort for relevance by a out of prime fighter.

UFC 99: Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs Mustapha Al-Turk

Mirko Cro Cop’s Official Blog:

So we have some big news …. I decided to fight in the UFC again, because of the stronger competition in the heavyweight division. My next opponent will be Mustapha Al-Turk.

I didn’t do well in my first three appearances – I wasn’t myself. By returning to the cage I want to prove that I can still fight at highest level, no matter when or where.

Once considered the worlds most dangerous head kicker, Mirko Cro Cop announces to the world that he back in the UFC and will take on heavyweight Mustapha Al-Turk.

Months back, Cro Cop announced he would be back in the UFC to finish his contract, but the rumors quickly extinguished as the UFC 99 fight card came together.

Al-Turk is coming off a first round loss to Cheick Kongo in his debut at UFC 92.

No official announcement has been made, Al-Turk is listed as talking on Todd Duffee on the preliminary card of UFC 99.
