Mirko Cro Cop-Gabriel Gonzaga Set For UFN 64 In Poland

ufc fight night 64

Mirko Cro Cop’s return to the UFC will take place in Poland this April, as he meets former foe Gabriel Gonzaga.

Officials announced the UFC Fight Night 64 event recently, adding a co-main event between Jimi Manuwa and Jan Blachowicz to the April 11 card.

Cro Cop (30-11-2) has won three of four since his release from the UFC in 2011, including two wins over former Olympian Satoshi Ishii. Gonzaga (16-9) earned a knockout win over Cro Cop back in 2007, but has lost his last two.

Manuwa (14-1) suffered his first career loss to Alexander Gustafsson last year, while Blachowicz (18-3) is on a six-fight win streak, including a victory in his Octagon debut.

Also, heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Oleksiy Olynyk are expected to meet.

The card will take place from the Krakow Arena in Krakow, Poland.

    I wish Cro Cop would stay outof MMA. Love him as a fighter, and he seems like a cool dude as well, but his fighting style is more for K-1 and kickboxing, which he thrives at. He doesn’t do well when opponents can take him down

    Hey Alpha, funny you should say that, I was saying the exact opposite a couple years back. That Mirkos ground and pound is actually pretty good, and that now his chin is clearly finished, he should concentrate on taking people down and working on them from there. Just like he did with Perosh, he crushed him. I think he can survive in mma, but not if he stands and trades with everyone.
    Not a fan of this fight particularly, personally would rather see Big Nog and Cro Cop fight if they both insist on carrying on
