Coach Trevor Wittman says Paul Buentello tapped out mainly due to pain from his dislocated finger, and considered retirement following his loss to Cheick Kongo: "He couldn't take it anymore," Wittman today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "Kongo did a great job of applying pressure and (threw) nice elbows to the hip sockets and that high leg and the knees to the body ... that all had to do with it also. But his hand was in severe pain." "The rules are (that) the fighter is allowed to put it back into place himself," Wittman said. "If he can't put it in and he can't continue, the fight is over. The doctor just kind of stepped in; I don't think the doctor understood the rules. We went over it with the commission in the back room. It was totally not the correct thing to do." "[Buentello] said he was thinking about quitting," Wittman said. "I told him to not make any rash decisions. He was like, 'Oh, the UFC's going to cut me.' Honestly, from my perspective – and I try to keep it as real as I can because I love Paul, and I think he's a great fighter – I think he's got to have more dimensions at this high level of the game."

Paul Buentello +325 talks Cheick Kongo -500: We’re looking at which Cheick Kongo’s gonna come out," said Buentello. "Is it the one who fought Heath Herring and Cain Velasquez, or the one who comes out aggressively and wants to stand and strike? We have to be ready for both levels of Cheick, but I’ve been in this game for a long time, and whenever I put my hands on somebody, the striker turns into a grappler. We’re hoping that Cheick Kongo wants to stand and bang. That’s the bread and butter, let’s show the world that these two heavyweights can let their hands go. But we’re kinda predicting that he’s gonna come out and go for the takedown." -- full interview at ufc.com UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones coverage

"I was disappointed with my stand-up game. I need to improve upon that aspect. I went after Kongo, which wasn’t part of the game plan. I will go back and work on my footwork and head movement. I am still new in my career and still need to gain some experience. It doesn’t really matter to me who I face next. Kongo is one of the best out there. I knew after this fight my opponents would just keep getting tougher. I’m ready to climb the heavyweight ladder one fight at a time. I will let the UFC decide who they want me to fight next. I will keep training and improve on the areas that need improvement. I will be ready for when that next fight comes." --Cain Velasquez, on his fight against Cheick Kongo HT: mmamania

A little old, but I don't remember seeing it anywhere. Very good publicity. "Saturday May 2 2009. Ultimate fighter Cheick Kongo joins Hollywood United FC as they play a charity match in Downtown [Los Angeles] to raise money for a new football pitch at a local high school. The crowds were extremely happy to watch this celebrity match and especially to see some familiar old faces pop up, like the Sex-Pistols bassist Steve Jones and Australian actor Anthony LaPaglia."
