Cheick Kongo Following Teammate Rampage Jackson to Bellator MMA

Cheick Kongo is following Wolfslair teammate Quinton “Rampage” Jackson to Bellator MMA.

MMAWeekly.com sources on Tuesday confirmed that Kongo, who recently left the UFC, has come to terms with Bellator and will make his next cage appearance for the promotion.

Kongo (18-8-2) left the UFC following a loss to Roy Nelson at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen in April. It was the final fight on his contract.

The French fighter had been offered a new UFC contract prior to that bout, but declined.

“Don’t believe he said/she said stories. I have not been cut by the UFC,” Kongo wrote on his Facebook page following widespread reports that he had been released after losing to Nelson. “I am Cheick Kongo, so I know best what’s next for me. It doesn’t mean that I am leaving the UFC. It doesn’t mean that I am staying. It means this is my life.”

Details of his Bellator deal or debut were not revealed, but it appears Kongo’s life will find it’s next chapter in the Bellator cage.

Sad thing is he may be a contender in Bellator's poor ass HW division.

Since Cole Konrad's departure you may not be far from accurate. Likely he'll get a warm up match then entered in a tournament. Then he'll probably smash his way through and get the shot.

Bjorn says they haven't signed him yet.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I wonder if Shaq will ever actually go into MMA considering he practices.
