It is rumoured that Cheick Kongo will fight Cro Cop at UFC 75 in London, England on September 8, 2007
Cheick last fought in the UFC 70: Nations Collide event in Manchester, England that resulted in a majority decision for the powerful Parisian against the brawny Brazillian, Assuerio Silva.
It was quite evident in Cheick Kongo's last fight that he needed more work on his ground game however, the same can be said for Mirko Cro Cop who lost to Gabriel Gonzaga on the ground and on his feet at the foot of Gonzaga's right high kick.
Expect a stand up K1 kickboxing style fight that is sure to get the fans cheering and on their feet too most of the fight. My pick - Cro Cop in Round 2 by TKO.
The UFC 75 Fight Card to date according to MMA Weekly:
-Quinton Jackson (#2 Light Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Dan Henderson (#4 Light Heavyweight in the World)*
-Mirko Cro Cop (#3 Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Cheick Kongo
