For the first time in its history, the UFC is headed to Poland. The Krakow-based April 11th card, to be streamed live on Fight Pass, features a heavyweight rematch between Mirko Cro Cop and Gabriel Gonzaga. You may recall their first meeting in 2007 ended with a head kick KO, but it was Gonzaga who delivered the unforgettable strike against the head kick specialist. This is Cro Cop's first fight in the UFC since retiring from MMA in 2011.

Meanwhile, top 10 light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa takes on Jan Blachowicz in the co-main event, as the Polish fighter looks to go 2-0 in the UFC while Manuwa wants to avoid a 2nd straight defeat. Women's strawweight contender Claudia Gadelha aims to rebound from a tough loss to Joanna Jedrzejczyk by taking out Aisling Daly, while Peter Sobotta battles Sergio Moraes of TUF Brazil 1 fame.
