CroCop signs extension, not with UFC

According to Croatian Sports website, Sportal, Mirko CroCop Filipovic has signed a 3-fight extension with FEG, the parent company of Dream and K1. In the interview, CroCop says, “The wish of the Japanese promotions is for me to fight (Alistair) Overeem in a K1 rules bout in July. I’m all for continuing our battle from last year.”

After many rumors were circulating that CroCop was close to signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Japanese based FEG was quick to offer a multi-fight contract and CroCop signed. According to the report, two of the three fights will be under MMA rules and could possibly pit CroCop in a rematch against Fedor Emelianenko in December of this year.
