Is it confirmed he re signed with UFC? I heard that he didn't sign with Dream and it was a rumor but no word about him re signing.....I don't know it's still pretty early he said he was going on a one week vacation.

The signing with DREAM was a rumor, but no word on his signing with the UFC either though.

if it's a rumor, it's a pretty persistant one:

Exclamation He's with DREAM

It's been confirmed on yahoosports that hes going back to DREAM. And I personally think he has more options fighting outside the UFC. He might get a rematch with Fedor at some point!

Yahoo later posted an article to their front page basically retracting that first one. Seems like it's still up in the air.

It sounds to me like Dana heard a rumor based on other sites "confirming" CC's signing with Dream, and unleashes a completely Dana style tongue lashing/diarrhea of the mouth response.

The only problem I see is that Dana is too much of a damn fool with far too much pride to ever announce that he was wrong. Meaning, that Cro Cop will probably not be signed by the UFC even if Dana was wrong.

It is a matchup I've wanted to see for a long time, but not so much lately with how crappy Arlovski's Chin has looked.

Also, CC's striking looked pretty good to me (albeit against a far less skilled opponent than Arlovski) and I think he could drop Arlovski.

Looks like he's fighting Mighty Mo at Dream 10. So much for quality opposition.

Maybe Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic wasn’t kidding about wanting to pack as many fights as possible into the years he has left, because SI.com’s Josh Gross is reporting that he’s agreed to fight K-1 kickboxer and occasional MMA fighter “Mighty” Mo Siliga at Dream.10 on July 20 in Japan. So take that all you people who said Cro Cop wasn’t serious about fighting the best heavyweights in the world. Siliga is an impressive 3-1 in MMA, with his last victory against the always tough available Ruben “Warpath” Villareal a little over two years ago. The guy’s no Mostapha Al-Turk, but at least he's not one of those annoying/bad-ass wrestlers that populate the UFC's heavyweight class.

So what does this mean for the ongoing debate about Cro Cop’s character in light of his decision to bolt the UFC? Well, it at least tells us that he really does want to fight more often, so much so that he’s willing to put quantity way ahead of quality. He’s taking this fight just a little over a month out from his last one. Of course, fighting a kickboxer with not much else in the arsenal ought to be a pretty easy fight for him, just as his last one was, so it’s not exactly as if he’s trying to test himself against the best guys around.

If you’re Cro Cop’s financial manager (picture a scary Croatian guy with a crowbar and an adding machine), you have to like this career trajectory. He’s fighting in Japan, where they love watching him kick the hell out of overmatched opponents, and he wants to do it as often as they can scrape together an event, which means a steady stream of paychecks.

It may not be the best thing for his legacy as a legitimate, credible fighter, but chances are he doesn’t care. You saw where he grew up. As long as he can afford a nice crib with a high fence to keep out aggressive women and gigantic loose dogs, he’s already beaten the odds.
