Mostapha Al Turk: “I’m going to Germany to win”

by Elliot Worsell | source:

Have you ever rented a mindless Eddie Murphy comedy from Blockbuster or Netflix, only to then open up the case and find the wrong DVD inside? You open it up and find ‘Citizen Kane’. I’ve never been lucky enough to, but British heavyweight Mostapha Al Turk experienced the fistic equivalent this past week, as he signed to fight Croatian superstar Mirko Cro-Cop at UFC 99.

Originally set to face UFC newcomer Todd Duffee on June 13 in Germany, Al Turk now receives a bump up to the main card and an opponent in Cro-Cop who could boost the Brit’s reputation skyward.

The difference in reward from beating Duffee to upsetting Cro-Cop is monumental for the Londoner, thus making his reshuffled June 13 plans all the more enticing.

 LOL @ Old Cro Cop. Guy looks 50 here.  Those shots Kongo and Overeem gave him will turn the biggest toughest dude into a blubbering blob of Jell-O.  Not so tough now, eh?   MAKE THEM LEGAL!

Cro Cop – “I will KO him in the first” Posted May 27, 2009 We recently caught up with Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ (24-6) at a press conference. Cro Cop is set to return to the UFC after being unsuccessful in his previous venture when he was brutally KO’d by Gabriel Gonzaga and subsequently dominated by Cheick Kongo in 2007, Cro Cop is currently scheduled to face off against former ‘Cage Rage’ champion Mostapha Al-Turk,  whom he had some choice words for;
