Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson scheduled for October

source: fightsite.hr
 

Mirko Filipovic has finally named his next and possibly last opponent in the UFC. At a large event in Las Vegas by 29th October led by Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz title fight in the welterweight, Cro Cop will meet with the UFC's "Fat" Royjem Nelson. Mirko information is revealed in Gol.hr.

This is the last fight of Filipovic's current contract with the UFC. Although the president of the organization after the defeat against Brendan Schaub said that this match was the end of Mirko under his wing, Cro Cop has insisted he wants to do a contract until the end. The American organization has finally caved and gave him another match.

Didn't Mir have a lot of trouble getting Mirko down? Are Nelson's takedowns better?

ok, let me be real. Roys competed in many grappling tournaments and done fairly well against top level competition. Yet Mirko somehow has amazing TDD at this late stage in his career that he could stop someone who outweighs him by 43 lbs.? While his take downs may not be the most technical or pretty, they still get the job done. I have a hard time believing Mirko will be able to get that belly off of him without a lot of work.

Be real man. Roy has 0 chance to take this to the ground with his sloppy greasy takedowns. Cro Cop's chin might be shot and his agression gone, but his TDD is still there. This isnt going to the ground.

Not at all, but I think Mark Hunt is the only man alive who can withstand a perfect CroCop head kick.

Mirko looked the best he had looked in years against Schaub...and he still got his lights turned out.I honestly feel bad for the guy these days. If you look at the other guys from his era (Nog, Fedor, Wand, etc.) they're not exactly doing too well either. Once you start slipping in MMA, there's 99% chance you're done.
