In a little less than two weeks, the UFC is preparing a new spectacle, this time on European soil, in London. The central fight will be between Rampage Jackson and Dan Henderson for the semi-heavyweight category belt.

But, for us, the much more interesting fight will be that between Croatia’s Mirko Filipovic and France’s Cheick Kong. For first fight after Mirko’s defeat in April

Being that the writer of this article can't even get Kongo's name right, I have serious doubts of the authenticity of the article.

It seems like English isn't the first language of the author. I wouldn't be surprised if the end of Kongo's name (the -o-) has some sort of different conjugation in Croatian.

Croatians have a real problem with his name, i've seen slavs who spell it gongo. It's a real artcle.

The unification thing is intriguing if for no other reason that it officially signals the end of the pride era. But the CC Kongo fight should be awesome because Kongo is lookin for his break and CC has a lot to prove after the Gonzage fiasco.

not much of a unification though, they are both guys who paved their way in the Pride org.

they may have paved their way in pride but rampage beat the ufc champ fairly and squarely (or fairly squarely as the case may be). that makes it as much a unification bout as any other.
