Mirko Cro Cop’s return to the UFC will take place in Poland this April, as he meets former foe Gabriel Gonzaga.

Officials announced the UFC Fight Night 64 event recently, adding a co-main event between Jimi Manuwa and Jan Blachowicz to the April 11 card.

Cro Cop (30-11-2) has won three of four since his release from the UFC in 2011, including two wins over former Olympian Satoshi Ishii. Gonzaga (16-9) earned a knockout win over Cro Cop back in 2007, but has lost his last two.

Manuwa (14-1) suffered his first career loss to Alexander Gustafsson last year, while Blachowicz (18-3) is on a six-fight win streak, including a victory in his Octagon debut.

Also, heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Oleksiy Olynyk are expected to meet.

The card will take place from the Krakow Arena in Krakow, Poland.
