UFC 70: Assuerio Silva vs. Cheick Kongo

This match-up should be pretty good. Both guys like to trade and are about equal in skill level IMO. And to be honest the rest of the card for 70 doesn't really look that good. Of course theres Bisping, AA, and Crocop but alot of the matches don't look too interesting. I am most looking forward to Werdum vs. AA

Yea I'm looking forward to this fight. If Assuerio starts getting on the receiving end of some heavy blows he can take it to the ground and probably win it there. Should be a damn good slug fest at least for a little while.

Seconded.

They better stand and trade for a while, or I'm gonna be pissed. Assuerio throws heavy punches, and Kongo has those long limbs, and some kicks of his own. Be fun to watch.

If Silva gets in trouble...he can, and will probably easily take this fight to the mat. I mean, Marrero took Kongo's big ass down at will. From that position, I believe Silva has a far superior skill set...but if Kongo's on top, and he knows what "posturing up" means, it will be hard to catch him in anything from the bottom. Hell, if he postures up, and can work from that position...he'll just stay there and use that giant reach-advantage, and drop some nuclear warheads down on Silva's face & body.

We'll see.

Also, I don't expect to see Assuerio throwing any head kicks though, he couldn't even get his leg high enough to make contact with Vera's shiny ass head. So, he wouldn't even come close to Kongo's dome.

OK, what follows will not bring anything new to this thread but ...

GO CHEICK KONGO !!!!

That said, if Congo wants to have a chance to win, and from what I've seen in his other UFC fights, he'll really have to keep the fight in the "stand up part" ... if he goes to the ground ... he'll stay there (not awake I mean)

I think this has the chance to be the sleeper fight on the card. These guy's are gonna go to war. I'm really looking forward to this one.
