A couple of HW's that are in contact with Dream are Roman, Stefo, Aerts.
All i really know is that Cro Cop is really motivated and pissed about his UFC losses and is going to be very prepared....WATCH OUT HEAVYWEIGHTS!


Who do you think he should be put up against?

I beleive it will be someone like Yoshida, a huge star in Japan but not a top 10. Then I think we can look for the big matches in his second fight. I think fight #1 will be a decent fighter with a big name in Japan then his second will be against Kharitonov.

a fight against Roman Zentsov would be great, i think among his fights that will take place in dream, one will be against mark hunt......they are both big draws in japan, and a rubber match would create hype, especially since both starting in k1.i have a big feeling this fight will happen. also fights with k1 guys, cro cop mentioned a fight with lebanner was possible, peter aertsis also amongst the roster.....there are great fights for him, most of which i rather watch than the one the ufc has right now, except for big timmy............not saying dream has a better HW division, its just more interesting fights for mirko, and in a better enviroment

i don't think it will be Yoshida since he is fighting Roger Gracie at World Victory Road. He should fight Kharitonov first imo and get his groove back so to say

No I just meant someone like Yoshida, very popular in Japan but not a guy like Kharitonov. I don't think that will be the first fight but I could be wrong, I have been before

oops, misread you once again. i agree with what you are getting at but regardless of his opponent i am sure CC will get back to his winning ways. a fight with Aerts intrigues me a little though.

Since they are affiliated with K-1, why not bring Manhoef in to fight him. He likes to strike, I saw him say he walks around at 210 in a interview before , it would be exciting, and I believe Mirko would win. First step back on the road to confidence. Zentsov is not a bad idea either.

I like the idea of a hunt rematch or kharitonov.. I think those are the most realistic possibilities

Kharitonov would be a great fight for Mirko or a rematch with Aleks Emelianko

Melvin's a big draw and I don't see K-1 moving him up to HW to fight against one of their other big draws... It would be an exciting fight though (as most of Melvin's seem to be)

well fedor is with M-1 so that's not happening...maybe a co-promotion but DREAM won't sign him. hunt signed with a pro-wrestling organization and even though that organization has ties with DREAM i don't see hunt fighting CC. i woiuld really like to see CC and Aerts so CC can get his confidence back after beating another elite striker which i think he will.

All I know is I woulden't want it to be me fighting him. He's kind of in a desprate situation, if he loses again...ahhh. He's also going to be wanting to prove a point with this one.
