Mostapha Al-Turk Thinks He Has The Tools To Beat Cro Cop

Mostapha Al-Turk

“I suppose nowadays in the fight game there are no easy fights. I’m stepping up as usual and hoping to take a big scalp come June 13th…I feel good. I feel like I’ve got the tools and the know-how and the skill to deal with him and beat him…You know, I’ve got a good stand-up game – probably not as good as his – and I’ve got a good ground game. I’m a good wrestler. My jiu-jitsu’s good. I’ve got a good chance and I believe in myself, that’s the most important thing…It’s only three and a half weeks away. It is quite short notice, but hey, you know, I’m stepping up and I’m going to take it to him.”

—Mostapha Al-Turk telling the Mirror (via MMA Fanhouse) that he has what it takes to beat Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 99.

I just might retire from blogging if Al-Turk takes out Cro Cop. It would be that sad of a day.
