Cro Cop
A rematch between heavyweight sluggers Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (30-11-2 MMA) and Gabriel Gonazaga (16-9 MMA) will headline April’s “UFC Fight Night 64” event in Poland.

UFC officials announced the booking earlier today.

“Cro Cop” returns to the UFC after compiling a 3-1 record outside of the promotion. Mirko was last seen in the octagon at October of 2011’s UFC 137 event, where he suffered a third-round TKO loss to Roy Nelson.

Filipovic re-signed with the UFC just days after Bellator had shown interest in inking the veteran heavyweight to a deal.

Meanwhile, Gabriel “Napal” Gonzaga will be looking to end a two-fight losing skid when he rematches “Cro Cop” this April. Gonzaga was last seen in action at December’s UFC on FOX 13 event, where he suffered a first-round TKO loss to Matt Mitrione.

UFC Fight Night 64 takes place April 11 live from Krakow Arena in Poland. The entire event will air on UFC Fight Pass.

In addition to the headliner, UFC officials also announced that a light heavyweight bout between Jimi Manuwa and Jan Blachowicz will also take place on the card.
