UFC lining up a PPV level card for Versus: Cheick Kongo to fight Paul Buentello

It looks like The Ultimate Fighting Championship are more than serious for their debut on Versus channel, as they announced that Cheick Kongo will meet an experienced Paul “The Headhunter” Buentello. Kongo will try to rehabilitate from his embarrassing loss to Frank Mir, by facing a fighter with more “suitable” style in Paul Buentello.

Heavy handed Paul Buentello fought twice for Heavyweight crown in both Strikeforce and the UFC (defeated in both occasions) lost a Unanimous Decision in his last fight to the young Dutchman Stefan Struve.

Full “UFC on Versus 1: Vera vs. Jones” main card:

Jon Jones vs. Brandon Vera
Junior Dos Santos vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Paul Buentello vs. Cheick Kongo
John Howard vs. Anthony Johnson
Shannon Gugerty vs. Clay Guida

    Very impressed with this card UFC put together. It could very well be PPV. We lucky to get it for free.
    This should be an intresting match up, both like to stand and exchange.

    Is UFC changing from Spike to VS. If so, why is the UFC changing networks?

    they’re not switching, they’re using both. I like versus, but I don’t get it with direct TV and I don’t know anyone who gets it, so unfortunately I can’t watch this free fight.
