After many rumored names and those names dropping out it has finally been announced that Mirko CroCop will face Tatsuya Mizuno on Saturday. Tatsuya Mizuno is primarily a grappler and has only fought in Pancrase during his pro career where he is currently ranked third in the Light Heavyweight division. Mizuno received a shot at the King Of Pancrase Heavyweight title last year but lost against UFC veteran Assuerio Silva.
