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.

Should be a great match! I see Cro Cop winning though.

ya unless cro cop is seriously shook by his knockout from gonzaga then i predict him winning by KO

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

hmmmi dunno kongo is no push over by any means if you have seen him fight i think cro cop is goin get his ass kicked again

DMcCabe11 » Posted 6/21/07 3:25:00AM

cro cop by foot to mind

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.

cro cop is going to have his hands full with congo he is a big guy and a good striker so be pepared for a war

cmill21 » Posted 5/27/07 4:09:00PM

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!

i think cro cop will win 1st rd. KO but with all of the upsets that have happened this year already nothing will surprise me

TOMMYAYO05 » Posted 6/27/07 5:26:00PM

I like fans like all you guy cuz when Kongo wins it makes me look even better,im takin the underdog for sure on this one.

cmill21 » Posted 5/27/07 4:09:00PM

i'll bet you $1,000 on this fight.
