When we had approached Cheick Kongo with the idea of giving BCMMAA.COM an interview and sending out a positive message to BC’s youth, he did not hesitate to accommodate this request. Cheick invited us over and was open and casually joking with us, immediately making us feel like friends in his home.  
  
He was open to all the questions that we threw at him. When asked about a possible re-match with Cro Cop, Kongo was reserved but said that he will be ready for any fight that will come his way in the future. He is currently still working towards getting his back at 100% again after a previous injury. 

His positive outlook on life shined through as he shared with us some of his training details and what it was like to train with Rampage Jackson and Michael Bisping at the Wolfslair MMA Academy. We are looking forward to seeing how his training has been paying off when he is back in the octagon this fall. 
This was one of the most fun interviews we have had to date, check it out and find out the reason behind the Kongo in Cheick Kongo’s name!


On another note we would like to say congratulations to Jon Felker of Penticton BC! He is our first weekly winner of the July 9th MMA Final Fight Down at the River Rock Casino. Next give away will be this Friday so enter you email on the mailing list for your chance to win!
