A heavyweight matchup between veteran Cheick Kongo and prospect Travis Browne is expected for UFC 120 in London. Verbal agreements are in place, paperwork pending. Kongo was recently cleared for training following a back injury that forced him off tomorrow's UFC 116.

Browne is a heavy hitter and after watching him swarm McSweeney on the ground, I wouldn't rule him out. This fight excites me.

Good match up for sure, neither McSweeny nor Kongo have the greatest chins and Browne does seem to hit pretty hard, he is a big boy too so I don't think Kongo will be able to completely manhandle him like he did to Buentello. It will be tough but I will probably be picking Kongo.

One thing I noticed about Browne that a lot of people making their debut don't have is the "it" factor. Browne didn't even look like he gave a sh*t that he was fighting McSweeney. He was never worried or intimidated and honestly just kept beating the hell out of him until he was told to stop. It was really exciting to watch.
