Mir vs. Kongo at UFC 107?
If this happens, I think Mir will win by submission.
A heavyweight matchup between recently defeated contenders Checik Kongo (14-5-1 MMA, 7-3 UFC) and Frank Mir (12-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) is reportedly in the works for UFC 107.
A report earlier this month from MMABay – a U.K.-based website with ties to Kongo's training camp – linked the 34-year-old to the event, and a subsequent posting from Canadian-based Spotsnet.ca indicated Mir is the French striker's tentative opponent.
UFC 107 is scheduled for Dec. 12 at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tenn.
Sources close to Mir's camp have indicated to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the former heavyweight champion has already returned to training following his UFC 100 loss to Brock Lesnar. And while the same sources indicate the organization has yet to approach Mir with the potential contest, the former champ has apparently indicated he'd be open to the matchup.
