Mirko Cro Cop likely to return at UFC 122 vs. Roy Nelson or Brendan Schaub

Croatian heavyweight fighter, Mirko Cro Cop is appearently about to put pen to paper on a new contract, and it looks like his first fight under new terms with the UFC would see him return to action inside the octagon at UFC 122 in Germany against either Roy Nelson or Brendan Schaub.

According to a source close to the situation, the fighter “made enquiries about bringing Dutch sparring partners to Zagreb, [Croatia] about two weeks ago” with the Germany card being mentioned.

The last time we saw the legend was at UFC 115 in June picking up a third round submission win over Pat Barry. Both Nelson and Schaub would pose problems for the fighter who is in the twilight of his career needing every win he can get.
