Cro Cop vs Alistair in K-1?

Seems to be all kinds of rumors about Mirko but here is another from him.

Recent rumors has placed Mirko Crocop fighting in Serbia at the Belgrade sports arena in a new MMA event, however Mirko has confirmed he will not be fighting there.

In a recent interview with Croatia Sports (Sportal) Mirko Crocop spoke about rumors of him fighting in Serbia and recent DREAm rumors.

When asked about the rumors regarding fighting in Belgrade, he stated:

- No from me. Belgrade has not called, nor any organization I know that there would be such a show organized. I Do not plan to compete there.

Mirko also said something interesting about Him and Fedor when asked about rumors of DREAMís OWGP.

Fyodor and I hope of the return, and come - said Mirko.

Mirko also stated something very interesting regarding his next fight, and who he will be fighting:

The desire of Japan is that in July avenge my fight with Alistair Overeem and by K-1 rules. I have nothing against continuing last year ended the fight.

Interesting I wonder who would take it. Overeem needed to take Cro Cop to the ground to beat him in MMA. But Alistair's stand up looked great against Badr so maybe he could handle Mirko.

It really comes down to where Mirko's head is right now. He has seemed to not have the killer instinct or drive he once had. The last few years have been a downslide for Cro Cop but if he can get his head back in the game I think he could still be a serious factor anywhere.

That being said, if his head is in the game and his training is up to par he can take Overeem. If not, we may see him get smoked.

I think even if CC could have the same aggression he used to, and the same strength, he would need a warmup fight before taking on Overeem. Ov is at least a top 5 hw.

This is more interesting than an MMA fight between the two.

Alistair wouldn't be able to clinch and knee Mirko continuously, or take him down.

More just hands and legs.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Exactly what I think. Mentioned it over in the DREAM thread. This is why I htink CRoCop has more of a chance in a K-1 fight.

Mirko has more of a chance but with the way Overeem has been improving I can't see Cro Cop winning.

I'd honestly still take Overeem. I think he won the stand up minus the clinch game anyways.
