The return of Mirko Filipovic continues as he is set to take on Anthony Hamilton at UFC Fight Night 79. Filipovic announced the fight in his facebook page.

UFC Fight Night 79 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held on November 28, 2015 at Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, South Korea. A welterweight bout between former WEC & UFC Lightweight champion Benson Henderson and Thiago Alves has been targeted to headline this event.

With this addition UFC Fight Night 79 now looks like this.

The 40-year-old Cro Cop (31-11-2, 1 NC) had retired from MMA following a TKO loss to Roy Nelson in 2011. He soon returned to fighting the next year, and is 4-1 in his last 5, with his only loss coming via submission to Oleksiy Oliynyk. Cro Cop came back to the UFC, on the heels of back-to-back wins over Satoshi Ishii, and rallied for a thrilling 3rd round TKO win over Gabriel Gonzaga in Poland. That victory was revenge for Gonzaga’s famous and shocking head kick KO win in 2007
