Cheick Kongo vs. Frank Mir Reportedly In The Works for UFC 107

Cheick KongoA heavyweight matchup between Cheick Kongo and Frank Mir is reportedly in the works for UFC 107, which takes place in December in Memphis, Tennessee, according to Sportsnet, citing a source close to Kongo.

Kongo (14-5-1), who trains with the likes of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Michael Bisping at the Wolfslair in the UK, had won three-straight over Dan Evensen, Mostapha Al-Turk, and Antoni Hardonk before suffering a unanimous decision loss to Cain Velasquez at UFC 99 in June.

The former heavyweight champion and recent interim title-holder Mir (12-4) suffered a second-round knockout to Brock Lesnar earlier this month at UFC 100 after previously winning consecutive bouts over Hardonk, Lesnar, and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

UFC 107 is headlined by a matchup between light heavyweight contenders and TUF 10 coaches Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans.
