Due to the major reshuffling of next weekend’s UFC 137 fight card Matt Mitrione and Cheick Kongo now take the co-main event spot, and below you can find pre-fight interviews with the two heavyweight fighters.
“I’m glad Cheick has footwork, I’m glad he has elbows and knees. That’s awesome…so have I. I have strength that Cheick probably doesn’t have. I have got aggression and athleticism that Cheick might never have seen in his life. I am most definitely going to stand and bang with Cheick.”
“I came into the UFC for the gold, for the quest. I have to reach that. I’m here, I don’t want to be stopped by anyone else now.”
