Confirmed by TheFightNetwork, Cheick Kongo will be taking on Antionio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 79 on December 29.

This will be former PRIDE FC champion Nogueira’s second fight in the cage, his first fight being against Heath Herring at UFC 73. Hering proved difficult for Nogueira on the feet and Kongo is going to be an even bigger threat to BIG Nog.

Kongo is coming off his biggest win ever over Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 75. Kongo out striked the legendary striker, to secure a higher position in the UFC heavyweight division. The winner of this fight would likely get a shot at Randy Couture for the UFC heavyweight belt.

    Diablos valla pelea, Nogueira es mi peleador favorito, y pienso que el puede ganar este combate el es el numero 2 de la mma, oficialmente hablando, asi que espero con ansia ese momento, arriba el "minotauro". Ojala gane.

    It should be a good fight but I like Kongo if he can keep it on the feet, I've said it before and I will say it again Kongo has to be the most well built man for the standup game in the UFC…..I would love to see Kongo fight Silva lol.

    Nogueira is impossible to KO. nogueira is more than well rounded. Kongo can't KO him and he probably wil have a very hard timeenforcing a gameplan against Nogueira.

    He will lose. Either by tap out or getting pummeled while pinned in a Nog-hold

    Minotauro es para mi el unico peleador invencible, pues es el unico que jamás ha sido noqueado ni sometido en las MMA. Espero que gane ante Congo y que le aplique "El triángulo" que hace tiempo no lo ha hecho.
