Quinton Jackson

Rampage is hard at work trainingfor another huge fight of his career against Dan Hendersoncurrent Pride Fighting light heavyweight champ.

Preparing to face Jackson, Henderson knows that, if he wins thisfight, it will make him the true world champion and do somethingthat nobody else has ever done, Dan “Hollywood” Henderson(22-5-0) has two championship belts now, so why not make itthree?

UFC 75 also includes a battle of two world class strikers whenCroCop takes on Cheick Kongo. CroCop will be coming back after atough loss to Gonzaga and lots of MMA “experts” claim he’s lostthe fire. Can the 3-1 underdog Kongo take him out?

Mirko “Cro Cop” returns to the Octagon following his first UFCloss to Brazil’s Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 70 in Manchester,England. The fearsome kickboxer turned mixed martial artist wasthe 2006 PRIDE Open Weight Grand Prix Champion and was expectedby many to defeat Gonzaga en route to a mega-fight with RandyCouture for the heavyweight title at UFC 74 in August. Instead,Gonzaga turned the tables on “Cro Cop” and caught him with aright leg kick to the head, sending him to the canvas in astunning upset nine seconds before the end of the first round.”Cro Cop” now goes back to England in an attempt to defeat Kongoand start a new reign of terror in the heavyweight division.

Kongo, like Cro Cop, is a kickboxer turned mixed martial artist.Not much was known of the 6’4″ 240-pound Parisian when he madehis UFC 61 debut in July of 2006 against Gilbert Aldana. He hadan impressive record and a stellar reputation as a kickboxer,but many wondered if he could compete in the MMA arena. Heanswered that question quickly as he halted the rugged Aldana inthe first round. Kongo then jumped back and scored another firstround stoppage

at UFC 62, this one over Christian Wellisch. At UFC 70, Kongotriumphed with a majority decision over popular Brazilianheavyweight Assuerio Silva, scoring his third win in the UFC.

Matt Hamill is already getting lots of bettors attention, butmost fans still see Bisping as an easy winner.

UFC 75 will be the promotion’s third event of the year inEurope, following UFC 70 in Manchester, England and UFC 72 inBelfast, Ireland.

Odds for UFC 75 have been posted already. The fight will be heldon Saturday, September 8th in London England.
