    Default Cheick Kongo cut, apparently

    Cheick Kongo cut, apparently - Mixed Martial Arts News

    Cheick Kongo's profile was removed from UFC.com, the usual sign that he has been released by the promotion.

    Kongo fought in the UFC over a seven-year span, going a very respectable 11-6-1

    Kongo looked like a better fighter than he ever was. He was good for the HW div when it was slim pickens

    He's had a solid run and made himself a good career in the UFC.

    I think Japanese fans would eat him up.

    Kinda weird that they would cut Kongo, when they never cut Pat Barry, who had worst stretches of being KO and sub'd. I hope they give him one more chance. There are still plenty of highlight reel matchups for him....

    Schaub

    I didn't see this one coming but Dana said there were going to be a lot more after they cut Fitch.

    I'm not surprised at all. In fact I think they said Kongo was in a do or die situation. The competition in the UFC HW roster is too stiff for him at his age. I would go so far as to say its possibly time for him to hang em up,

    Pat Berry on the other hand puts up a good entertaining fight just about everytime you see him. They will keep him around like Leben and Wandy.

    No worries, it happens. I'm sure one of the mods will merge it. But I still get credit for breaking the story!
