UFC 169 Free Fight: Frank Mir vs. Cheick Kongo

As a primer for tonight's face-punching festivities, enjoy this free replay of the Frank Mir vs. Cheick Kongo scrap from UFC 107.

Ahead of tonight's UFC 169 pay-per-view event from New Jersey, the UFC has made a few matches available for free viewing on their Youtube page. One of those offerings is the heavyweight tilt between Frank Mir, who collides with fearsome striker Alistair Overeem on the UFC 169 main card, versus French Thai boxer Cheick Kongo at UFC 107 in 2009.

At the time, Mir's three-fight win streak had just been snapped by Brock Lesnar, who avenged an exhilarating kneebar loss to Mir at UFC 87 with a merciless top-side shellacking at UFC 100. Though Mir, a former heavyweight champion, would fall to behemoth Shane Carwin in his next outing, he'd eventually battle his way back into the mix with another three-fight surge on the heels of the Carwin defeat.
