UFC heavyweight fighter Heath Herring has been offered a match against Cheick Kongo on March 1 at UFC 82 in Columbus, Ohio, MMAjunkie.com is quoting a source close to Herring as saying.
According to Junkie’s report, Herring has not officially signed a bout agreement but has every intention of doing so.
It’s not known whether Kongo has agreed to the bout.
Kongo’s immediate future has been up in the air ever since he recorded an upset unanimous decision victory over Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 75 on Sept. 9 in London.
Since the victory, rumors and reports have surfaced that suggested Kongo’s next fight would be against Tim Sylvia. Sylvia would later sign on to fight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the interim UFC heavyweight title at UFC 81 on February 2 after current champ Randy Couture submitted a letter of resignation to the UFC.
