Heavyweight clash in Ljubljana: Stamatović against Cro Cop's longtime training partner

The Montenegrin fighter enters his prime heavyweight years, facing the biggest challenge of his career

Less than a year after his last victory, Montenegrin heavyweight Milenko Stamatović (29, 2-0) returns to the cage. At FNC 15 event in Ljubljana, he faces the biggest challenge of his career, against the experienced wrestler Josip Matković (44, 1-1).

The fighter from Bushido Team will conduct part of his preparations at the Zagreb-based American Top Team and comes into his prime heavyweight years for a surge. He faces the challenge of an older fighter in the cage of Fight Nation Championship, the premier MMA promotion in Southeast Europe.

Joso was supposed to fight Croatian boxer Agron Smakići in Vienna, but the match was canceled. Now, Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipović's longtime training partner will try his luck in his home promotion and attempt to stop the Montenegrin.

Just a reminder, the event is scheduled for Saturday, March 30th, at the Ljubljana Arena Stožice. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased HERE through the Eventim system and at all Petrol gas stations
