Cro Cop Prepared To Talk To Both DREAM And UFC



I have nothing to hide or to be ashamed of. This thing is very simple. I know the truth and Dana knows the truth — I had a one fight deal with UFC and I fulfilled my contractual obligation. I said we’re gonna sit down and talk after UFC 99. The problem is I’m 35 and I’m finally healthy. UFC is offering me a fight six months from now. Even before UFC 99 I said that won’t work for me, but they said something like they’re gonna change it. I said even before that I wanna fight three more times this year, I don’t really care if it’s in the ring or Octagon. I still stand behind my words and I know the best fighters are in the UFC, but if they’re offering me the next fight in six months I don’t see how I could take it. I haven’t signed anything yet with any organization and as I said — I’m prepared to talk with both sides. I’ve never been in a sweeter yet more difficult position. DREAM offers me more fights, but at the other hand I’m aware of the quality that is in the UFC.
