A heavyweight bout that could have the octagon rocking is set now that strikers Cheick Kongo (14-6-1 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and Paul Buentello (27-11 MMA, 3-2 UFC) are signed to meet at UFC on Versus 1.

The Versus-televised event is set for March 21 at The Odeum Colorado in Broomfield (near Denver) with a headliner of Jon Jones vs. Brandon Vera.

Kongo and Buentello are part of the night's televised main card.

Buentello, who recently returned to the UFC after a run with rival Strikeforce and Affliction Entertainment, dropped a majority decision to Stefan Struve in December. The closely contested UFC 107 loss snapped the fighter's two-fight win streak, and it was just his second loss in his past eight fights.

Kongo should win this fight I think. I like Buentello and wanna see him make a good run on his UFC return, but Kongo is too big and powerful for him IMO. He will probably get KOd in the second. Or TKOd from some Kongo ground and pound.

Someone is going down. Kongo takes it probably.

sadly I have to give this one to Kongo would love to see Paul pull it off and he has the possibility of putting Kongo's lights out but I just don't think that will happen
