While Cain Velasquez positioned himself near the top of the heavyweight division, Wanderlei Silva answered the call of Yoshihiro Akiyama, and Stephan Bonnar and Michael Bisping each called for rematches of their UFC 110 losses, former heavyweight destroyer Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic has a much different take on who he would like to fight next.
His boss. Cro Cop would like to fight his boss, UFC president Dana White.
“It’s not about who I want to fight. It’s the UFC’s decision. I’d like to fight Dana White first,” quipped the staunch Croatian at the UFC 110 post-fight press conference.
“It would be easy money for me, but I don’t know,” he quipped, before adding, “Maybe Ben Rothwell.”
Rothwell was his originally scheduled opponent for UFC 110, but had to drop off the card due to illness.
Cro Cop hasn’t proven to be the easiest guy for the UFC to deal with. He has consistently avoided PR appearances and interviews in their attempts to build up the legendary fighter’s bouts. So maybe Dana White wants to fight him too.
Then again… probably not.
