It’s a rematch nearly eight years in the making.
On April 21, 2007, Gabriel Gonzaga folded the most dangerous kicker in mixed martial arts history with a perfect kick to the head. Mirko Filipovic, while still dangerous, has not been the same since.
On Saturday in Krakaw, Poland, “Cro Cop” will set his eyes on revenge and a final run to glory on MMA’s most prestigious stage. But before blows are thrown at the Krakaw Arena, the heavyweights took to the scales to make this weekend’s UFC Fight Night “Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop 2” headliner official. Both Filipovic (232) and Gonzaga (255) came in well under the 265-pound limit.
Co-headliners Jimi Manuwa (206) and Jan Blachowicz (204) also hit their marks for Saturday’s event, which airs on UFC Fight Pass at 11:15 a.m. ET/8:15 a.m. PT. The main card is scheduled to kickoff at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT.
