And in today's chapter of the ongoing Mirko Cro Cop saga, it appears he's all set to return to DREAM next month. Sources close to negotiations report that Cro Cop has agreed to fight Siala Siliga, aka Mighty Mo, at DREAM 10 on July 20.

Man,if this is true and the fight goes off.I would just love to see Mighty Mo ko my favorite head kicker from Croatia.Is it just me or does it sort of seem like cro cop really likes to take safe fights.Mighty Mo can punch,but i just don't see cro cop wanting to beat the best,more like trying to get the most for the least risk.He is nowhere near the fighter he once was.

Nah I think he just wants to fight and I can love and respect that. he wants that UFC belt but it will take em probably 2-3 years to even get a shot if their going to make him wait 6 months for a fight. Yeah its great to fight quality fighters, but its also good to stay active and im sure we can all agree Mighty mo's a good step up from Al Turk even tho he was a tough dude. Hopefully he beats and kicks the hell out of mighty mo then fights Allistair, whoops his ass and gets back into the UFC to win the title on a winning streak! Thatd be sweet, maybe even the rematch with Fedor too. I mean if he aint going to fight in the ufc, at least stay active and fight a lot! Hopefully he does not take any long breaks again. hes getting older and this is his time to seal his legendary legacy for good by taking down Allistair and winning that UFC title belt in the next few years and maybe even Fedor in the mix too!

He has lost my respect for that too, just how I feel.

Seems to me Cro Cop took the easy way out. I don't see Dana making him wait 6 monts for a fight. When he knows he's a big draw and he didn't get hurt at all in his fight. I don't believe that one bit.

Imo I think CC is a little scared of whats in the UFC. He beat Sanchez and Turk in his fights the rest he lost, both fighters he lost too are coming off losses to up and comers and could of had a rematch with Kongo or Gonzaga, well maybe not Gonzaga cause he has a fight coming up.

i thought they were reffering to king mo as well. that would have been a good fight. but we forget, he is still with sengoku and not dream, i think.

Crocop can't handle the competition in the UFC and he knows it.........That to me i think is the one and only reason he signed with Dream and not the UFC....

Even if he does want to come back to the UFC down the road i doubt Dana will want to take him back.....

For those thinking King Mo (Muhammad Lawal), remember he's Sengoku property, not DREAM.

i dont get why people want to see 2 kickboxers fight in an mma fight. this is not even close to a legit mma opponent for Cro Cop, he should just formally retire from mma if he is that afraid to fight any top relevant mma fighters. Basically since 2006 he got beat by Alistair, Kongo and Gonzaga (not even by ground fighters) and keeps looking for weaker and weaker mma fights off those losses. Truly sad turn of events since the 2006 GP.

No offense to the mod who posted this but I dont see how any mma fan can say "war Cro Cop" off of this sad news. That's basically saying you don't want him to be an mma fighter.

I don't think CroCop is relevant anymore. He doesn't seem to be interested in fighting the best anymore and he quit against Overeem. However I would be pretty happy if Crocop faced Overeem on the next SF card, i never miss 'em when they come to san jo
