UFC 144 – Cheick Kongo draws Mark Hunt on February 25th in Saitama, Japan

November 17, 2011 All MMA News, Exclusives, UFC

In a bizarre twist MMABay.co.uk can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that French heavyweight striker, Cheick Kongo has been paired with former K-1 champion, Mark Hunt on the UFC 144 card set for February 25th at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

It was thought earlier today that “Ultimate Fighter” season ten winner, Roy Nelson would be facing Kongo but a source close to Hunt’s camp told us just moments ago that he has received the nod. The promotion are said to be keen on capitalizing on the New Zealander’s popularity in the Far East.

Kongo is coming off a grinding three round decision win over Matt Mitrione at UFC 137 last month, putting him back in the mix as a top contender in the heavyweight division. Prior to that he’d scored a first round TKO win over Pat Barry.

As for Hunt, he turned around a miserable run of six straight losses when he pulled off back-to-back wins inside the octagon over Chris Tuchscherer and Ben Rothwell via knockout and unanimous decision respectively.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
