If a man is less than fazed about the return of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic to the UFC, it is British heavyweight Mustapha Al-Turk.

“I was initially taken aback at the announcement, but hey, it’s a big opportunity for me and since then I have just immersed myself in training. He is an opponent like any other. I take all of them seriously.”

The encounter – which is slated to kick off the main card of UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany, on the June 13 – will mark Al-Turk’s second venture into the promotion’s heavyweight ranks following a disappointing debut against Wolfslair product Cheick Kongo. He is keen to make a different impression this time round.
