Report: Mirko Cro Cop To fight 'Mighty' Mo At DREAM 10

New, 6 comments

According to Josh Gross of SI:

Less than a week after apparently snubbing the UFC for Japanese mixed martial arts promoter Dream, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic has agreed to fight Siala "Mighty Mo" Siliga on July 20 in Saitama, Japan, a source familiar with negotiations for Dream 10 told Wednesday.

We talked about Mirko Cro Cop supposedly signing with DREAM earlier this week, but Mirko was still denying it saying he was open to negotiating with the UFC and DREAM.  However, now it looks as if he will indeed fight for DREAM.  "Mighty Mo" is primarily a kickboxer, so look for this one to stay standing the entire time unless someone gets KTFO.  The rest of DREAM 10 looks like this:

  • Shinya Aoki (20-4) vs. Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro (20-2)
  • Melvin Manhoef (23-5-1) vs. Paulo Filho (16-1)
  • Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic (25-6-2) vs. Siala "Mighty Mo" Siliga (3-1-0)
  • Andre "Dida" Amade (6-3-1) vs. Katsunori Kikuno (11-1-1)

Dream Welterweight Grand Prix Semi-Finals:

  • Hayato "Mach" Sakurai (35-8-2) vs. Marius Zaromskis (9-2)
  • Andre Galvao (3-0) vs. Jason High (7-1)
