Dutch sports website Ground and Pound has posted a piece after speaking with UFC heavyweight contender Cheick Kongo where he states that he will take on Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 75.
Here is a translated snip from the article:
Rumors have been circulating for some time on the internet that Mirko Cro Cop and Cheick Kongo would meet in a European duel in England at UFC 75 in September. Kongo confirmed the rumors that he had a fight with the PRIDE Grand-Prix world champion with Ground and Pound, saying simply “It is true.”
If this turns out to be legit, this will definitely be a matchup that I’ve been wanting ever since Cro Cop stepped foot in the UFC.
