Cro Cop fighting Sergei in June?

http://www.index.hr/sport/clanak/cro...se/378537.aspx

The article is in Croatian and I will summerize it. Article states that CC was supposed to fight Sergei at Dream 1 but CC declined the fight stating that would be too tough of a match for him after a six month break. Now they moved the fight to Dream 4 which will take place in mid-june and it will apparantly be made official in about a month possibly on April 29th which is Dream 2. That is when Dream is supposed to announce the fight. In one of Mirko's quotes he said " I am not approaching these fights in Dream as practice for UFC comeback instead I am treating every fight seriously." I think CC vs. Sergei would be a great fight. Sergei is without a doubt one of the top heavyweights in the world.

this fight would be badass....Fedor>all just mentioned this fight yesterday I think...and now it looks like it might be happening

i'm pysch'd

Sergei is a top HW?

I mean dude has done nothing but beat Overeem lately.

He's a step up for Cro Cop but he's not top 15.

When motivated, Sergei is as tough of a HW as you can find. He seems to be at his best against strikers as well, not a good matchup for CroCop IMO. This should be a great fight though.

I think Sergei is definately top 15.

I also think he will beat Crocop.

Fedor, Couture, Nogueira, Barnett, Arlovski, Sylvia, Werdum, Gonzaga, Aleks E., Herring, Kongo, Mir, Rothwell, Cro Cop, Vera

I would put all of them ahead of Sergei right now. Now back before he lost to Overeem, and Aleks E. he was a top 10 HW but right now I would put all those guys ahead of him.

I for one think Sergei is a huge threat. So what if he isn't ranked high, he is a dangerous dude. Damone will be all over this news

Oooh, I like this fight, and I think Sergei will take it as he has solid stand-up, has a solid chin and likes to press the action.

Sergei's pretty damn solid when he's at the top of his game and not being a stupid ass.

thats what the article said....not what I said

And who the hell has Monson beat besides Fujita, or even Big foot besides a washed up Ricco? or Vera? or even Mir for crying out loud? How about Herring (besides a split to Kongo)?

Sergei has only been beaten by 4 people, and he has avenged one of those loses. All 4 of those fighters were top of the heap fighters....
