The article is in Croatian, I will summerize it. Article states that Cro Cop was supposed to fight Sergei at Dream 1 but he declined the fight stating that would be too tough of a match for him after a six month break. Now they moved the fight to Dream 4 which will take place in mid-june and it will apparantly be made official in about a month possibly on April 29th which is Dream 2. That is when Dream is supposed to announce the fight. In one of Mirko's quotes he said " I am not approaching these fights in Dream as practice for UFC comeback instead I am treating every fight seriously."

That is a good match up. Kharitonov is tough.

This is a goo legitimate chance to see where cro cop really is. If he can dominate like he did back in the old day's then he should fight Fedor again.

YESSSSSS.....I heard he and Lebanner was pretty much signed, but this is a better fight for him IMO. I personally think Kharirtonov is a great fighter, and this is a dream match up for me

Nice to see there giving mirko a solid fight rather than giving him bums. Also good to see dream are planning on putting out alot of cards, i just hope they can match the first one, or at least be almost as good. As far as the fight goes ill take mirko by a 1st round k.o. But it really could go either way.

Damn, it's not quite official yet, but it is being talked about, along with Lebanner and Filho. I hope it's Sergei.

According to MMAWeekly.com,

-Dream 2 is on April 29 (MW Tourney debut)
-Dream 3 is on May 3
-Dream 4 is on June 15 (Cro Cop vs. Kharitonov)
-Dream 5 is on July 21

And by the way, I'm excited that they are giving Cro Cop this fight. Kharitonov is at least a top 20 HW, and he's probably top 15 (I had him in my top ten not too long ago). I'm not really worried about Cro Cop losing this one, but I'm excited that will will at least get to see him tested by a big league fighter.
