Josh Gross is reporting that Mirko Cro Cop will face Siala "Mighty Mo" Siliga on July 20th at DREAM 10. There has been considerable Mirko bashing since he fled the UFC after EPKOing Al Turk. I'm just as pissed as everyone else, but lets remember this is not Pride Cro Cop. In the UFC, he'd have all kinds of trouble with the top guys (the ones he claims he wanted to fight). Whenever the UFC put him into the cage with Lesnar/Mir/Couture/Carwin/Velasquez, he was losing. It was inevitable and in a way I'm happy to see it end this way. I don't want to watch anymore former Pride greats get dominated.
In Japan, he can end his career against mediocre competition and hold onto the last shred of his past dominance. Kick dudes in the head, cash your checks, and ride off into the sunset, Mirko. I'm fine with it.
