While nothing's official, PRIDE veteran and current UFC heavyweight Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipovic has claimed on his official Facebook page he's facing Anthony Hamilton next. UFC have not announced the fight nor has the news otherwise been confirmed.

It's on......

"It's on," Cro Cop wrote succinctly on his personal Facebook page. That short caption sits under a photo of the legendary Croatian heavyweight with Hamilton's face beside and slightly behind him.

Cro Cop, 40, last fought at UFC Fight Night 64 in April where he stopped Gabriel Gonzaga via third-round TKO with heavy punches and elbows. His professional mixed martial arts record currently stands at a lengthy 31-11-2 with 1 no-contest.

Hamilton, 35, most recently competed at the same event as Cro Cop. He defeated Daniel Omielanczuk via unanimous decision. Should he face Cro Cop next, he'd do so with a 14-4 MMA record.
