Cro Cop vs Ralek Gracie in Grappling Match at DREAM 4

Quote:
Nokaut.com has learned that Mirko Cro Cop will face Ralek Gracie, a black belt in brazilian jiu-jitsu, in a special rules grappling match on June 15's DREAM 4 card in Japan. Cro Cop was originally scheduled to fight Jerome LeBanner but that fight has been postponed. In the meantime, DREAM offered the Gracie grappling bout to Cro Cop, which he has accepted. The fight will take place under modified Abu Dhabi rules: two five-minute rounds with no point system. The only way to win will be via submission. Should the fight go the distance, it will be declared an automatic draw.

Mirko told Nokaut that while would prefer a grappling match with a points system, as he would have an improved chance to win using throws and takedowns, he still is looking forward to testing his ground game against top competition and is looking forward to the match.

Additionally, Nokaut has learned that both Igor Pokrajac from Cro Cop's team and Cro Cop's grappling coach Marcio Corletta may appear on DREAM 5, scheduled for July 21.

I'll probably be an outcast in my opinion, but what a complete waste.

would this count as a fight in Cro-cop's 3 fight contract? Does that mean no new year's eve blowout with rumored fedor emelianenko?

There is now way this is a bad idea for Cro Cop, he'll be doing some serious ground training in submissions and submission defense, Mirko with a solid sub game is a very scary thought.
