New heavyweight fight matchup added to UFC 61

The UFC has added a heavyweight fight to the card at UFC 61 Gilbert Aldana vs. Cheick Kongo. I have to admit I know very little about either fighter other than what I've been able to glean from fight stats published on the internet.

Gilbert Aldana is coming off a tough loss to Paul Buentello in UFC 57 where he lost the fight by TKO at 2:27 in round 2. Most of Aldana's experience comes from Rage in The Cage where he was undefeated prior meeting up with Buentello.

Cheick Kongo is a relatively un-known fighter here in the US and has done most of his fighting in Holland with the Rings Holland organization where he holds a 7-2 & 1 MMA record.

Both men seem to be solid fighters with big punches and this promises to be an exciting fight.
