The producers of DREAM, the new Japanese MMA promotion borne out of the ashes of PRIDE and K-1 HERO'S, have set forth their "dream" match for the annual end-of-year fight festival known as Dynamite: a rematch between former PRIDE aces Fedor Emelianenko and Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic.

Wooo thank god, I thought they were going to do this at Dream 5 when Cro Cop's supposed to fight again lol. I don't want this fight that soon but at the end of the year if all goes well I will be more then happy to see this. Hope Cro Cop fight Kharitonov next, or the fight that I keep hearing about.

I wonder if the UFC will take Cro Cop back, as planned, if he loses to Fedor. I mean it is Fedor, it's not like a loss to him is much of a blemish on his record. I'm happy that this is in the works, but I hope CC gets back to the UFC whatever happens.

If CC wins, its a huge mark on his career in terms of people thinking "he's back". If he loses , its expected. If Fedor doesnt dominate, I bet he still loses his "#1 status", because CC has been eaten up by only decent heavy weights.

I don't think he's thinking about going back, he's thinking about winning. He looked really happy at Dream and the Japanese style fits his personality much better.

Are you trying to say that knocking down cans who go into fetal position two minutes into the first round fits Cro Cop's personality much better?

Good call, and why Cro Cop was fighting a 3-2-0 pancrase fighter anyway I don't know.

I do understand his record hasn't been so great lately but that was against a decent heavyweight in Chiek Kongo and IMO a fluke loss to Gonzaga.

Why give him another Eddie Sanchez, I really don't think given wins will increase his confidence.... Give him a proven fighter to prepare himself for a Fedor 2....

Kharitonov is a great choice.... and I'm sure a better fight than Mizuno.

Hoahahaha woooo good one big guy good one. No I mean that the Japanes don't have all of the pre fight things that the UFC does. They're quiet, they don't boo, and I've heard him say he really likes that.

Cro Cop is fighting Kharitonov next Link

do you really think hes going to fight Fedor after 2 losses and 1 easy win? No hes going to get a top 15 or 20 first and the winner of that probably fights Fedor

Can the UFC take Cro Cop back at anytime? So if he starts doing good they can just automatically have him back

I can , but when I speak it I sound like a douche, I don't have the proper accent, kinda like when I speak French.

I'm not a Cro Cop fan but i'm definately rooting for him....I'm sick of all the Fedor dic* riders.
