In an appearance on ESPN’s “The Hot List” yesterday, UFC President Dana White officially announced Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic’s opponent for UFC 75. As expected, Cro Cop will face French kickboxer turned MMA fighter Cheick Kongo. UFC 75 is scheduled for Sept. 8 in London.

I see Cro Cop winning via KO, but it's hard to ignore how monstrous Kongo looks

I hope cro cop recovered mentally from his last fight. If that's the case i don't see him losing.

Lol, I still don't get how anyone could possibly believe kongo's a better striker then Mirko. If Mirko's minds in the fight, he's going to dominate. Like really guys.

Agreed he's a good striker, but Mirko's on another level, he'll KO kongo in round one. And Mirko's fought some of the biggest strikers in all of kickboxing, mma everything, Bob sapp, Aleks, waterman. All are bigger then kongo. I expect a few leg kicks from Mirko, follwed by a stiff left, and then kongo going down from either the stiff left(as sapp did) or the follow up high kick(as aleks, igor, wand, ect. did)

This all seems like i have heard it before.......... cro cop is going to work Gonzaga, no chance for Ganzaga, left kick to the head, ect............. I know that Cro Cop is the better striker than Kongo, but you can not count him out. He does have skill and if Cro Cop is not on his game again then he will get caught and will lose another. Either way it is going to be an entertaining fight. A lot of stand up action!
