From Cro Cop's official blog:
So we have some big news!
I decided to fight in the UFC again, because of the stronger competition in the heavyweight division. My next opponent will be Mustapha Al-Turk.
I didn't do well in my first three appearances – I wasn't myself. By returning to the cage I want to prove that I can still fight at highest level, no matter when or where.
It's hard to talk about concrete plans, but I would really like to fight at least three times this year. I wish to fight against quality opponents and to fight my way up to a title shot but for now, I'll focus only on my next fight and after that we'll see what's going to be on the menu next.
I want to say thank you Mr. Dana White for your interest and for an invitation back to the UFC. I owe you a lot from our first deal, and I'll make it up to you.
Thanks everyone for supporting me all the way – we are back in business!
