Cro Cop vs. Rothwell ‘Likely’ For UFC 110

Mirko Cro Cop

A rumor surfaced on the Underground yesterday that Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ will be taking on Ben Rothwell at UFC 110 in Australia, and today Sherdog is reporting the match-up as “likely.”

Mirko Filipovic and Ben Rothwell have been scheduled to meet Feb. 21 in Sydney, Australia, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the bout.

Skill-wise, Cro Cop should be able to take Rothwell, at least on the feet, but man, we just never know with Cro Cop anymore, do we? To be honest, I don’t like the fight. Rothwell will have a significant size advantage, and I don’t know about you, but I’m just not interested in watching Cro Cop get pummeled again by someone substantially larger than him. Is it too much to ask for Cro Cop to take on someone his own size?

Maybe if Cro Cop gets his head right with that sports psychologist he talked about seeing, the fight will play out differently than we’ve come to expect, but really, I don’t see any reason to get our hopes up.
