I do not want to reveal too much, but the next card will eclipse the Road FC 11 card. We are very close to getting Melvin Manhoef vs Mirko Cro Cop done for the next event.
If that statement does not make your heart skip a beat, then you are dead inside.
Sure, many of you will look at this as one of those “__ Years Too Late” fights, but we all said the same thing about Wanderlei Silva vs. Chuck Liddell, and how amazing was that fight? Despite the fact that he’s coming off a loss to Brock Larson at One FC 8, Manhoef has actually reeled off three wins in his past four contests and has proven that he can still kick with the best of them (and oft through them). As for the size difference? I refer you to this.
As for Mirko, well, he’s been less fishing in Privlaka and more winning the K-1 Grand Prix lately. In MMA competition, Cro Cop was able to successfully break the three-fight skid that saw him ousted from the UFC with a first round armbar (!) win over former sumo wrestler Shinichi Suzukawa. So needless to say, HE’S BACK BABY.
Also set for ROAD FC 12, the professional MMA debut of former Korean national boxing champion, PABA champion, and IBF champion, Ji Hoon Kim, who will likely be competing in a bantamweight contest.
