Technically, Cheick Kongo is not cut from the UFC but his deal expired with the Nelson loss. He turns 38 in about 2 weeks."
And he got 70k for his Nelson fight. Like with Fitch they probably thought he was too expensive. Maybe they'll negotiate a cheaaper contract.

Too bad, with his non-improvement he would probably never get a title shot, but he was a consistent gatekeeper.

read earlier he was offered a 4 fight contract before the nelson fight but turned it down. Kongo ended it on his own terms

Sounds like retirement.

Indeed.

Quote:
“He was offered a new four-fight deal with an increase in money. We couldn’t agree on the amount so Kongo ceased negotiation. He is now still under contract but only in the closing stage of his old one, he has had his six fights. What happens next is we are locked in for a month and cannot talk to anyone. Same as “Rampage”. Kongo might go back to the table. He may go elsewhere. All will be revealed. But he WASN’T cut. And he refused the new deal terms”

No, his manager said they just couldn't come to terms that satisfied both parties, I don't think it was his intention to retire. More likely his intention was to beat Roy and then have a stronger stance to negotiate from afterward, but as we can see that didn't go Kongo's way.

My guess is that the UFC lowballed him since he's clearly on the decline. Sucks he's gone, his fights were usually always good and were finished a lot of the time, one way or another.

Can't say I am too surprised. Kongo has been with the UFC for a long time, his record is spotty and I doubt he has a big draw. I'm sure we will see him in smaller organizations fighting James Thompson soon.

It's too bad. He filled the "huge ripped black dude HW striker" niche pretty well, despite his lackluster peformances. Who will be that guy now? Daniel Cormier ain't gonna cut it.
