After his bloody win over Anthony Perosh at UFC 110, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic will still be getting a Duke Roufus-trained striker to stand and bang with at UFC 115, only new reports suggest that it won’t be Ben Rothwell, as previously expected. MMA Scraps is reporting that Cro Cop and Pat Barry have been offered a chance to try and kick one another’s faces in when the UFC visits Vancouver. Do we have to tell you that signing this fight is about as close as you can get to guaranteeing a highlight reel caliber knockout finish without actually paying one fighter to go in there and leave his chin wide open? We didn’t think so.
But if Barry is getting Cro Cop, what of Rothwell? The rumor is that he may now be getting Barry’s original opponent for UFC 115, Gilbert Yvel. So basically, the stand-and-bang quotient just doubled. Join us after the jump as we go ahead and get ourselves hyped for the awesomeness that awaits us.
