With the heavyweight belt on ice for the foreseeable future due to TUF8, the UFC has started booking pointless heavyweight matches to keep all the ‘contenders’ in a holding pattern. First up is Cheick Kongo vs UFC virgin Dan Evensen.
Evensen is coming into the UFC with a 10-2 record, having lost to oh-so-successful guys like Christian Wellisch and Dan Bobish. His wins come mainly from lame fight orgs where fatties are apparently allowed to wear shirts. Hey, there could be a reasonable explanation for that. Maybe the policy made the fatties cover up because their huge tittehs were arousing drunken patrons who would then go on car-flipping, cop stabbing rampages to re-assure themselves of their heterosexuality.
