Mirko Cro Cop has one fight left on his UFC contract. Who should he face?

Stephan Streuve wouldn't be a bad match-up actually

He just just retire, but if he really wants to get one last fight i think struve or nelson comming of a lost would be good because struve or nelson can make the claim they beat a "ledgen".

yeah he is not retiring yet. Dana said that he wants to fight and has one fight left.

"This guy wants to fight again and I owe him another fight," White told ESPN.com. "He's a grown man. If he wants to continue to fight, that's his right and he still has a fight with me. Cro Cop' and I made a deal and he wants to fight again. I'm going to honor that deal."

I would love to see Struve vs Cro Cop. Nelson would handle Mirko IMO. struve would be a great fight .

I had a think, and I've come back to this thread

If Dana really thinks Roy needs to drop down a weight or something, maybe he could Mirko at a 220 catch weight?

Should Roy lose then obviously the weight drop is not a good idea and he's lost a lot of excess weight and could bulk up on muscle and Cro Cop can retire on a win, should Roy win then he's beaten Cro Cop at a new found weight. It'd be a half way point for Roys weight cutting, keeping him active and retiring Mirko at the same time

Does anybody see this happening? I'm normally miles off but I can justify my thoughts... Which is rare

Mark Hunt would be a good rematch for Cro Cop.

I also like the idea of Cro Cop fighting Nelson or Struve.

Has Big Nog been comfirmed to fight someone yet? If not I'd love to see that as Cro Crop's last fight.

And good idea jjeans, I actually love that idea.

Nog is fighting Schaub in Brazil, but that's the name that comes to mind for me as well.

I said this in another thread when Mirko was getting another fight, he should face Mark Hunt.

Randy Couture.

They can fight at either Heavyweight or a 210 catchweight. it would be competative, and it its a fight thats often been talked about.
