MMA and kickboxing legend Mirko Cro Cop will make his Bellator debut in May, when he faces fellow longtime veteran Roy Nelson.

Personally, I wish Cro Cop would have retired after winning the Rizin Grand Prix. That just would have been a bad ass way to close out his career. I'm kind of disappointed to see him come back..

I feel like Bellator is jumping the gun on this. I mean, this fight could be worse in a few years if they'd just have the patience.

They really are putting together a senior circuit. The timing leaves something to be desired but I'd rather see this than Cro Cop smashing duds in Japan.

I think Bellator is the perfect spot for Mirko.....they have a bunch of older past their prime HW's besides maybe Mitrione but I honestly don't believe he's that good anyway. Nelson could KO Mirko or Mirko could KO Roy........either way, it's a good match to make based on their ages and most recent fights. I also wouldn't mind seeing a Crop Cop vs. Mir rematch and this also sets up Cro Cop vs. Fedor one last time.
