Cheick Kongo discusses his beef with Ryan Bader, previews fight against Tim Johnson

Cheick Kongo makes his return following a long layoff after his controversial fight against Ryan Bader. His return comes in the first major MMA event to hit France, Paris more specifically.

Kongo is set to take on Tim Johnson in a rematch that comes almost exactly two years after the original fight. The first fight was a dominant TKO win for the Frenchman.

The fight has high stakes for Kongo as he believes a win will give him the next title shot. The fight with Bader left a sour taste in Kongo’s mouth after the fight ended in a NC due to eye pokes.

In the full interview Kongo discusses his beef Bader, the matchup with Johnson, fighting in Paris, and so much more.
