"Although I announced Yoshihiro Nakao as my first opponent in DREAM, this fight is not going to happen. I'm not familliar with reasons and I won't be asking for any. The most important thing is that I'm going to fight on Saturday and my opponent will be Tatsuya Mizuno. I have very little information about my next opponent so I'll just go out there and fight.
I really don't know what was happening and why everyone was quitting. Hopefully they are done with it.
However, I also heard an unbelieveable amount of rumours over last 2 weeks, with most of them origin from Profightstore.com. I publicly declare that this website has no official source from Cro Cop and information on it are not reliable - only www.mma-id.com and my official homepage www.mirko-crocop.com are reliable sources.
Here I will share my impressions with you as soon as i get back from Japan. I'm so excited about DREAM's inaugural show and I can't wait to take off on Wednesday."
Well, atleast he's fighting. Taking a tune up isn't a bad thing and something he really needs.
