I know at best he is HW gate keeper but looking at it from his perspective.
exactly


people also have to realize that managers/teams have to agree to contracts before a fighter signs. Nelson is good....but fighting him would have done nothing for Kongos career currently

How in the world would a win over Nelson do nothing for Kongo? The guy isn't getting any younger and Nelson would clearly be the best win he has ever had. Like it or not Nelson is a great win for him.
