Mostapha Al-Turk says he is confident he can take out Mirko 'CroCop' Filopovic in what will be the biggest fight of his career at UFC 99.

Al-Turk is coming off a loss to Cheick Kongo so could be forgiven for wanting a safer fight, but he told UK newspaper The Mirror that he is happy to fight Filopovic (pictured).

I feel good. I feel like I've got the tools and the know-how and the skill to deal with him and beat him,”

I could possibly see Al-turk beating cro cop but Im not banking on it, I think it would just be by decision.

But Im taking Cro Cop by tko

That was my exact pick when cc fought Gonzaga...

I know Al-Turk isnt anything special but CC has a lot to prove to me.
ill probably end up picking CC though

Not a huge fan of CC, but I see him grinding out a decision.

Crocop is really fresh off knee surgery, I want to say something like 4 months. It's way too soon in my opinion, but I don't think we're going to see a huge headkick KO if Crocop is smart. I've heard that he's working on his upper body strength and hands a lot lately, hope he utilizes them well.

CC via KO without many kicks used at all imo.

Al-Turk is nothing special and nowhere near UFC level imo, so a nice return win for Mirko

I agree with MMAcca, I wouldnt kick too much against a big guy like that just incase he took me down.

He WILL through a few, But not too many.

i hope

i dont think Cro Cop could recover his image if he re-enters the octagon just to become a highlight reel clip again

that being said i'm going with CC by TKO/KO

WTF happened to Duffee? I see these reports of Cro Cop agains Al-Turk, but no reports of an injury to Todd Duffee, and Duffee is still listed on the fight card on UFC.com against Al-Turk/
