Famed UFC heavyweight Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (22-5-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who suffered a devastating KO loss to Gabriel Gonzaga last month at UFC 70, will make his return to the Octagon at the recently announced UFC 75 event in London, England, on Sept. 8.

Damn, I'm honestly surprised his leg really wasn't screwed up from when he fell on it. But its good to see he's coming back to the game, and not calling it quits like he was supposedly thinking about.

He has always maintained that he would at the very least finish his contract out.

I just hope he comes out like he did after that devastating loss to randleman. I fully believe he will, he's far to talanted and proud to not get another shot at the title, and hopefully another shot at fedor.

I hope that mirko will be the fighter that he was in the ring in the cage. It almost doesnt seem right seeing him in the cage. He truely was one of the PRIDE all time greats.

Agreed, he has said in multiple interview he doesn't like the cage and he is still not used to the new rules(like elbows). He will train his ass off and make it back to his original forum, he's to talented not to.

Good I want him to meet someone who is a really good fighter. Then maybe he'll train.

He always has, but now he's giving himself his punishment training, and getting a cage, hopefully he comes back like he did in the owgp

He has said in interviews that the OWGP took alot out of him and slowed his training. Also he hasn't trained with elbows, and like you said he didn't have a cage(huuuge difference from a ring). Hopefully he'll come back like he did after the Randleman loss.

Man I'd definitely be looking forward to that fight! As long as AA comes out to win, and not to "not lose."

I think Mirko being the proud man he is will come out and push the fight, he'll be fighting to kill, not TKO, but KTFO. He was embarassed by a lesser fighter, with more experience in the surrounding, I can garentee that he'll fight pissed off.

Yeah, you know Cro Cop will be coming out swinging. I guess Arlovski will finally have to do something substantial to win the match.

BOOOO it's kongo. I'm beside myself with anger. Did arlovski not want to take the fight? Is dana just wasting one of the most talented fighters in the world? WTH i'm so mad, this is just a waste.
