After a 4-2-1 record since 2009, heavyweight Cheick Kongo has decided to move on to Bellator MMA, according to MMA Mania.

“After my contract was up in the UFC, I really wanted to take some time and reflect on everything,” Kongo said. “After talking to the people around me, especially someone like my longtime friend in Rampage, he told me how well Bellator has been treating him and what we can do with Bellator, and after getting to know Bjorn Rebney, it just seemed like the right fit for me. I know I have plenty of fight left in me, and my fight in October is the first step to getting that Bellator Heavyweight Title.”

Kongo is expected to make his Bellator debut in September, participating in the Heavyweight Tournament.

    Can somebody answer this question for me. Why aren’t more young black men participating in mixed martial arts?
