Crocop is returning to the ring at DREAM.4, but don’t expect to see him kick the head off another tomato can. Instead, he’ll be facing off against Ralek Gracie (touted by many along with Roger as the next generation of ass-kicking Gracies) in a grappling match with no points:
The fight will be taking 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. CroCop was originally scheduled to face Jerome LeBanner on DREAM 4 but that is off for the time being.
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.
In other news, the Japanese fight scene still makes no sense whatsoever, so stop trying to understand or predict what will happen. This is the second time in six months that Mirko has been booked by his retard agent Ken Imaii for a completely retarded sideshow, with the first being his appearance on New Years Eve at a Hustle pro-wrestling bout. Lets cross our fingers and hope that sooner or later CroCop gets to fight some of that MMA shit, and against a decent opponent too? Or is that too much to expect nowadays?
