Cheick Kongo vs Gilbert Yvel 2, make it happen Dana

Im sure this fight will be set up next.

Both lost their last fight, it'd be a good stylistic match up for both and a helluva fun fight.

These 2 fought in Europe years ago and Yvel is the only person who ever TKOd Cheick Kongo.

Here is a link to the fight..






I'd lean towards Cheick in a rematch (UD), how about you?

Awesome idea! This would be a great fight for a Pay Per Veiw opener, or maybe even a Fight Night headliner. I picked Kongo simply because I like him better, but I'd say the odds would be evenly split.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing Junior Dos Santos vs Kongo. I think that would make a fun fight and with all the top contenders being busy right now id say this fight makes sense. Kongo is still a contender IMO, just because he lost to Frank Mir doesnt mean he is a bum. Id say Frank Mir would beat everyone in the division right now except for maybe Brock. And if Frank keeps putting on muscle and gets up to 280 id say the next time they fight my moneys going on Frank (Partly cause i like Frank)

I think JDS deserves a better opponent than someone who's 0-2 in his last 2.

Yeah, his next fight is going to have to be Gonzaga, or maybe the loser of Carwin/Mir. With Nog as his teamate and friend, that's not going to happen, and after Nog derails the biggest hype train of all time at UFC 110, a fight with Cain won't be worth much either.

I am going to go with Yvel on this one. Only because I cant stand a man that hits other men in the balls willingly.

This could turn out to be the dirtiest fight in the history of the UFC.

Kongo via faking a nut kick, throwing Yvel off and then punching him in the head.
