Mirko Cro Cop vs. Brendan Schaub Set for UFC 128 on March 19

Mirko Cro Cop FilipovicHeavyweights Brendan Schaub and Mirko Cro Cop are reportedly set to square off on the pay-per-view main card at “UFC 128: Shogun vs. Evans” on March 19 in Newark, New Jersey, according to Fighters Only.

The matchup comes just one day after rumors that Schaub was pulled from a fight with Frank Mir to face Stefan Struve at UFC on Versus 3, while Cro Cop recently said he was planning to return to the Octagon soon.

Schaub (7-1) topped Gabriel Gonzaga in October for his third-straight UFC win after falling to Roy Nelson in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 10, while Cro Cop (27-8-2) looks to rebound from a third-round KO to Mir at September’s UFC 119 that snapped a two-fight win streak.

The UFC 128 fight card is headlined by light heavyweight champ Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. former title-holder Rashad Evans.
