Cheick Kongo

Cheick Kongo at UFC 87

Cheick Kongo (15-6-2) is healing up and getting ready to return to the UFC. It looks like that return will take place at UFC on Versus 4 on June 26 against a yet to be named opponent.

MMAWeekly.com sources confirmed that the fighter is to appear on the main card of the event. At this time, the card is still without a venue, but reports have suggested that Milwaukee, WI is the location of choice.

Kongo was last seen taking on Travis Browne on October, 16 at UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama. The fight went to a draw and Kongo was deducted a point in the third round for repeatedly grabbing onto Browne’s shorts.

In December, Kongo underwent back surgery and has been sidelined ever since.

MMAWeekly.com will continue to follow up on an opponent for Kongo as more information becomes available.
