Mirko Cro Cop's return to the UFC was a successful one back in April, and now the heavyweight great says he's got his next fight lined up. On his official (and new) Twitter account, Cro Cop told his fans that he will appear again on the UFC's South Korean debut on November 28th:

There's no word on an opponent, although my personal prediction is that Stefan Struve is who he'll get this fall. The 40-year-old Cro Cop (31-11-2, 1 NC) had retired from MMA following a TKO loss to Roy Nelson in 2011. He soon returned to fighting the next year, and is 4-1 in his last 5, with his only loss coming via submission to Oleksiy Oliynyk. Cro Cop came back to the UFC, on the heels of back-to-back wins over Satoshi Ishii, and rallied for a thrilling 3rd round TKO win over Gabriel Gonzaga in Poland. That victory was revenge for Gonzaga's famous and shocking head kick KO win in 2007 over the head kick master himself.

UFC Fight Night in Seoul is expected to stream live on Fight Pass. No fights have been confirmed, although the targeted main event is a welterweight contest between Ben Henderson and Thiago Alves.
