Mirko Cro Cop vs. Brendan Schaub at UFC 128 in Newark, New Jersey

UFC and PRIDE Croatian sensation, Mirko Cro Cop will next climb into the octagon to face TUF 10 runner-up, Brendan Schaub at UFC 128 at the Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey on March 19th, 2010. The move has led many to speculate that former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir has been pulled from the fight with Schaub to be a part of the latest season of “The Ultimate Fighter”.

Cro Cop is looking to rebound from a disappointing third round knockout loss at the hands of former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir. Prior to that he’d picked up back-to-back stoppage wins over Anthony Perosh and Pat Barry.

Schaub is currently on a three fight winning streak which includes two first round knockout wins and a unanimous decision win over former title contender, Gabriel Gonzaga earlier this year. The sole loss of his career came at the hands of former IFL champion, Roy Nelson on the season ten finale of the reality show.
