In a recent interview with Dvenik.hr, Mirko Cro Cop has confirmed that he will rematch Alistair Overeem at the New Years Eve K-1 Dynamite 2008 show at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
The two faced off last month at DREAM 6, but ended in a disappointing “No Contest” after Overeem struck the Croatian fighter multiple times in the groin.
Cro Cop also revealed that he will continue to have work on his knee after the NYE fight.
“I’ve had several operations this year, and I’ll have to undergo another one straight after the NYE event. It’s frustrating to have to undergo all these operations but that’s the sportsman’s life. Many others have had it worse then me,”
