The UFC isn’t holding anything back for their highly anticipated debut on Versus as the planet’s biggest MMA organization just added an electrifying heavyweight clash between Cheick Kongo and Paul Buentello to their “UFC on Versus” extravaganza.
Buentello holds an impressive 27-11 record and has rolled off wins in 12 of his last 15 contests.
Kongo appeared to have his ticket punched for a heavyweight title fight after he rattled off three consecutive TKO wins over Dan Evensen, Mostapha Al Turk and Antoni Hardonk. However, his championship hopes were quickly derailed when he dropped a unanimous decision to the up-and-coming Cain Velasquez at UFC 99.
Kongo was last seen getting submitted in the first round by former two-time UFC champion Frank Mir at UFC 107.
