I really am thinking Nelson via nasty uppercut KO late Rd. 2.

How crazy would it be though if Kongo pulled of a KO comeback a la Pat Barry?!
Agree, people are being too negative. Kongo has been in some crappers, but usually vs. far inferior guys like Jordan.

Roy knows his cage work and he is a vet and will be working on getting off the cage. But in close isn't exactly the best place to be with Roy. He can generate power from close range. He likes the uppercut as well.

Kongo may try to play the kick and outside game for a while. Seems to be popular these days. Roy's awesomeness will override Kongo's dullness.
