Fighter Bio


Cheick "Kongo" Guillaume Ouedraogo (born May 17, 1975 in Paris) is a heavyweight mixed martial artist currently fighting in the UFC. He fights out of the Fimeu gym in Paris, France. Kongo has been fighting in martial arts since he was 5 years old, following his brother into Kendo and Karate.

Kongo began into martial arts when he was 5 years old, learning Kendo and Karate. As he grew older, he would learn to master Muay Thai and Kickboxing and would also practice Greco-Roman Wrestling. At age 19, he would discover the Penchak Silat and would then be coached by Charles Joussot and Franck Roppers.

On June 10, 2001, Kongo began his professional career by knocking out Andre Tete. Kongo then followed up that win with a TKO over Dave van der Veen. He then would lose his first professional MMA fight to Rodney Faverus by decision. Kongo would then go 6-1-1 until he entered into the UFC to fight Gilbert Aldana at UFC 61, whom he beat by TKO due to a doctor stoppage. Kongo would follow up with a win over UFC newcomer Christian Wellish by KO due to a knee strike, before losing to UFC newcomer Carmelo "The Fury" Marrero at UFC 64. In his latest MMA bout, Kongo defeated Assuerio Silva by Majority Decision at UFC 70.
