A showdown between veterans of the sport is being looked at for Road FC 12. CEO Moon Jung Hong is close to making Melvin Manhoef vs. Mirko Filipovic official.
“I do not want to reveal too much, but the next card will eclipse the Road FC 11 card,” said Hong on Cor MMA. “We are very close to getting Melvin Manhoef vs Mirko Cro Cop done for the next event.”
Filipovic last fought on New Year’s Eve when he submitted Shinichi Suzukawa out of Japan. Manhoef lost a decision to Brock Larson at ONE FC: Kings and Champions earlier in the month.
Manhoef is contracted to ONE FC, but they have a talent exchange deal with Road FC.
Road FC 12 currently has no date set.
