Mirko Crocop has just accepted the challenge of Overeem, and since his training is going so well, he plans on 100% fighting at DREAM.6 in september.

Something to push him. He is the type of fighter who has faced a who's who and needs personal motivation, I believe Alistair will give him this. It will be a very interesting fight since Mirko is facing guys like Remy Bonjasky in sparring and training with Marijan Zianovic while Alistair is with Golden Glory. I still don't believe Alistair is on the same level of striking, but Cro Cop hasn't shown what he can do since he beat Barnett so this is both of their fights to prove just where they're at right now. Should be a good one.

Should be a good fight, I think Mirko will drop him with a straight left and an uppercut and finish with GnP, but if Mirko doesnt pull the trigger like he has is his last couple fights Overeem will beat him. Should be a great fight.

excited for this one, I think if Overeem brings his gas tank he may pull this out...but thats considering we get the Cro Cop as of late.

if both come in at full potential I give it to cro cop though.

I think if Alistair bullies Cro-Cop into the corner a la Kongo, Overeem can take this. He has awesome knees, especially to the body. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing either of them win though I'll be pulling for Overeem. If Alistair wins he finally gets top 10 recognition, if Mirko wins he might have his mojo back, I'm excited.

Great fight and great timing. Alistair is on a huge upswing, and Mirko is in the middle of recovering from a huge downswing.

IMO Hunt was going to get the better of Alistair on the feet in a hurry, so I am still not convinced Alistair's standup is on Crocop's level. I also don't think Alistair will be able to pull off the same kind of nonsense submission on Crocop as he did on Hunt. Crocop by rd. 2 KO

I think Overeem will get cro cop on the ground and submit him, but if it stays standing cro cop will k.o. him. should be a great fight
