“He made a lot of mistakes, he did not train in the cage, he let his ego get the better of him. Usually when he returns from a defeat, Mirko is very angry and good. I am convinced that we will see a completely different Cro Cop. I must admit I can hardly wait for the fight because I think it will be his first real fight since arriving in the UFC. I still do not know who his opponent will be is he wins against Kong [at UFC 75], but a fight against Randy Couture for the title is possible. Anything is possible here.”
–UFC President Dana White comments on the future of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic in a recent interview. He was also rather to the point when asked about rumors of “Cro Cop” facing Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria if he is victorious over Cheick Kongo at UFC 75 stating “we never said that”.
