Cheick Kongo: The Road to a Title

Looking for his fourth straight win, Kongo could very well establish himself as a top title contender with a legitimate win over a solid wrestler and demonstrate that he has overcome what many believe was his greatest weakness, a shoddy ground game.

But, the reality is, if Kongo does become a top contender, we will have to talk about more than just what he’s improved. At least, we’ll have to talk about more than what used to be terrible and is now satisfactory.

In opposing the winner of this whole Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar title bout, there will be a question of whether Kongo is really a legitimate heavyweight in the international scheme, though I imagine the UFC will work hard to minimize that. Given that the UFC heavyweight division seems to be struggling, it wouldn’t surprise anyone for Kongo to end up at the top of the ladder even if some feel that there are more qualified individuals on that ladder.

Iron Man I like your thoughts but I think Velasquez will decide where the fight will take place and in doing so he alone will decide the victor. If Velasquez goes in and plays it smart he should have little difficulty controlling Kongo and I believe Cain is only at risk of losing if he plays a dumb strategy and lets his pride get him a beating.

If Kongo gets past Velasquez, I hope Lesnar wears a triple shock absorber titanium jock strap into the Octagon. Kongo can change the course of any fight with his patented testicle strikes.
