Al-Turk vs. Kongo @ UFC 92

http://mma4real.net/2008/09/23/cheic...urk-at-ufc-92/

Quote:
he announcement of Velazquez withdrawing from the fight will leave many disappointed as the fight guaranteed fireworks. All is not lost, as a replacement has been found in tough Frenchman Cheick Kongo, who is coming off a TKO win over Dan Evensen at UFC 87 in Minneapolis.

“We were offered Kongo by Joe and we accepted the fight. We were just waiting for Kongo to get his signed bout agreement back before we could confirm it,” clarified Demetriades, adding, “Everything else is the same. Mus will be fighting on the main card, on pay-per-view. It’s a good fight.”

I’ll tell you what…the UFC is not cutting former Cage Rage HW champion Mustapha Al-Turk ANY slack as he plans to make his UFC debut. First, he was going to face Cain Velasquez whom everyone believes could be the future of the HW division. However, with Velasquez pulling out of the fight with a knee injury…Al-Turk now must face the dangerous French striker in Cheick Kongo. Al-Turk is primarily a grappler with heavy hands, while Kongo is a striker that’s improved his ground game leaps and bounds in the past year or so. The UFC is quietly building the once shallow HW division into a division with some depth and legitimate contenders.
sweet deal...i actually like Kongo

could a mod change the title...i misspelled Kongo

If Al-Turk can't take Kongo he doesn't need to be in the UFC imo.

I think Al-Turk will beat Kongo. Kongo TDD isn't very good and I think Al-Turk will pound him out much better match up for him then Velasquez who would beat him no matter where the fight went.

Yes, because the cage rage (former) middleweight champion is a bad guy! (A)


But seriously, everyone comes from lower orgs before stepping into the light EVERYONE, not counting brock lesnar,


So shouldn't judge a guy by his org, the guys are fighters and their skill level is what matters.

I hope Kongo loses, i just hate Kongo that much

Enyette i wanna see him fight for a number 1 contender shot against someone like Gonzaga, cause Gonzaga will just do what he did to CC and my life would just be awesome

Nah, Lesnar did too.

I see Kongo getting destroyed in this match up. Poor Kongo needs to be paired up with other strikers instead of being sacraficed like this.
