I was really disappointed by that fight, because I think I'd heard a little buzz about Kongo around these boards.
But as I recall it, Kongo wasn't particularly damaging as a striker and pretty useless once he hit the ground. I haven't seen any of his other fights, so I don't know if this is truly indicative of his skills or not.
While anyone can rebound from an off night, I wonder if the loss might expose weaknesses in his game that other (more talented) fighters can exploit. Also, I have to wonder if the UFC will give him the chance to fight again, given the underwhelming performance he gave against a part-time fighter.
