French striker Cheick Kongo will look to get back on his winning streak when he takes on UFC newcomer Dan Evensen. They will battle it out at UFC 87: ‘Seek and Destroy' to be held at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., on August 9.

I still think Kongo can develope into a top level mixed martial artist. I hope he can get a win and continue his progression, and become a title threat in a couple of years. The UFC HW division needs guys to start developing into top level fighters.

Evensen is a new fighter that they'll look to test. Does this mean that Kongo has been relegated to gatekeeper in the HW division? Or guy that new fighters face? Wow, losing to Heath Herring can do a lot of bad things to a person.

No, I think they are trying to build him into a star. They are going to have him rack up a bunch of easy wins while he develops a ground game and then use him as a main event when the UFC finally enters Europe. Thats my guess anyway.
