Same as above for matt serra not the p4p part but everything else
Kongo = defensive wrestling (basically chuck lidell style wrestling)
imagine kongo if no one could take him down
no longer in the sport but broke lesner and striking does not even have to have great striking, just has to be well enough to be able to throw a good technicl punch with most his power
thats all for now im sure more will pop into my head once i post this lol
It's not as fighters wouldn't be able to out-strike him or knock him out, it's happened a few times before.
And he has won more fights with his wrestling than lost via being taken down repeatedly.
