One of the biggest myths in MMA is that Kongo has no wrestling/grappling game. I've absolutely no idea where it came from, because it's completely false.
I pretty much agree with this. He is decent at everything. He won't out-strike the better strikers. He won't out-grapple the better grapplers. But given the chance he will clinch and try for TDs against the cage. He likes to pose as a great striker, but he often goes to clinch mode when things get rough.

Kongo is an overrated striker and underrated grappler. He ok at both. Which translates into an ok fighter. He rarely gets manhandled on the ground. He finds his way to his feet well.
