"I still have even bigger competitive fire than before. Right now, I'm completely healthy and looking forward for the fight. He's good, he's young, hungry, but he's just a rookie in this sport. Brenden Schaub won't survive three rounds with me." -Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic


Coming off of a loss in what some viewed a lackluster performance against former UFC champion Frank Mir, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic has declared himself completely healthy and ready to put "rookie" Brendan Schaub in his place.

Schaub (8-1) is coming off of a huge win over heavyweight contender Gabriel Gonzaga, who famously gave Cro Cop a taste of his own medicine at UFC 70 where he landed a head kick which floored the then highly regarded UFC heavyweight contender.

Since then, Cro Cop's career has been a mixed bag. He lost subsequent fights against top contenders such as Cheik Kongo, Junior dos Santos and the aforementioned Mir, but has gotten by lesser skilled opponents over that time frame including; Tatsuya Mizuno, Choi Hong-man, Mostapha Al-turk, Anthony Perosh and Pat Barry, which has kept him relevant in the division.

A win over Schaub could thrust him back into title contention, but at 36-years-old and the sport advancing at a breakneck pace, does Cro Cop have another run in him, or will another young lion capitalize off of his legendary name
Bold 1. Cheick Kongo as a top contender is laughable. Unless they legalize low blows, he'll never break into the top ten.

Bold 2. Nothing short of the simultaneous demise of everyone else in the HW division will get CroCop back into title contention.

Bold 3. No.
