Cheick Kongo vs. Tim Johnson
All the focus will be on the Heavyweight Grand Prix this weekend, and rightfully so. But there are a couple other less publicized heavyweight fights slated this weekend that are sure to entertain.
Perrenial top contender Cheick Kongo takes on another former UFC fighter in Tim Johnson on Saturday night. According to Bellator head man Scott Coker, the winner of this contest could very well establish themselves as the No. 1 contender. Or at the very least earn a title shot at the winner of the Grand Prix.
Kongo has won six straight fights. Johnson has alternated wins and losses in his last six fights. This fight definitely has future title implications.
