Earlier today, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic appeared on Croatian channel NovaTV (a station who in the past has televised many of the Croat's bouts live for his home nation) and revealed future plans for the fledgling DREAM promotion's heavyweight division. User "loreia" on the Kakutougi forums broke the news with a quickfire translation:

From his interview for NovaTV broadcasted just minutes ago:

"Winners of two HW fights scheduled for Dream.6 will fight for Dream HW title. Those fighter will be: myself and most probably [Sergei] Kharitonov".

wow, that is great news, I think it'll end up being Overeem and Sergei though, and I'd probably give that fight to Overeem.

i hope this isnt a setup for mirko to fight cans untill he retires. I expect mirko to lose to one of them (overeem/kharitonov). win or lose, where does all this leave him? all the best HW fighters are in affliction/UFC. Although i enjoy watching him fight in high def on hd net for free,

This is great. I'm glad Dream is establishing champions now. They are putting together a strong stable of fighter, and is now time to start creating a face or faces of the organization, much like Fedor, Wand, Gomi, and Hendo were for Pride. I like this promotion and hope they stick around for a long time.

If thats the way its playing out I could see Mighty Mo winning the belt since I see Cro Cop beating Allistar, but I hope to see Mirko with the belt and see him return to the UFC and beat the living poo outtta Kongo.

I think if Sergei and Overeem fought again it would be no different from their last fight. It just seemed to me that he figured Alistair out after their first fight and knows what he needs to do to beat him now. Overeem is a great fighter but he doesn't really seem to learn from his mistakes, he always has basically the same gameplan and a poor gastank.

I'm hoping for crocop/kharitonov.

How is this a set up to fight cans when his next two matches are against top ten opponents in terms of skill.

Affliction has partnered up with Hdnet i believe, both have been known to cross-promote as well.
Cro-cop v. Barnett 4 anyone? lol

after the two matches, competition in dream @ hw severely drops off. I just dont want him to lose and fade away fighting cans in japan until he retires. I want to see him back in north america fighting top hw's. A cross promotion with affliciton would be awesome.

Cro Cop's already said he will be leaving Dream after his 3rd fight. Probably to Affliction from what i'm hearing, and unless Dana offers him what he's offered by other top campanies he won't go back unless his first fight is against Kongo and his second againt GG still with a competitive price.

that is where the whole dream heavy weight title coming into play scares me. i dont want him stuck defending some meaningless belt.
