How crazy would it be though if Kongo pulled of a KO comeback a la Pat Barry?!
that's what i'm hoping for: 1:30 of face to face pummeling with one person lying flat.

i'm hoping for panda steaks for dinner rather than frog legs.

Carley Simon, thanks for writing that song about me!

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.

Nelson via hillbilly haymaker all day. I've learned better than to bet against Big Country.

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.

Kongo has kind of poor defense at times. Not the best habit to have against a guy like Nelson.

Taking Kongo for the upset by simply outstriking Roy for three rounds.

I remember that Kongo clipped Cain Velasques twice but he did take a lot of punishment from Cain in their match.A hell of a lot actually.

I think this fight will be okay to watch. I'm going to take Kongo, I think he will stay on the outside throw his kicks, and clinch here and there. I don't think he will go to the ground with Nelson

This should be the plan, but I think he'll get smacked for throwing a leg kick.

Roy is a much better striker than Kongo. Kongo likes to disguised himself as some good striker...but he is a clinch and holder through and through. He hasn't out-struck anyone decent in a long time. He gets killed, has to come back vs. Pat Barry, or he clinches to a win.
