Going by the article I linked, they offered him in increase in money.

Somebody somewhere has offered him more cash. Maybe it's something not related to fighting? He's a fine specimen is Kongo. He would look great in movies.

Yes, his physique is probabably the closest a real human can get to a superhero/-villain.

Lavar Johnson got cut I believe.

I'm sad to see Kongo go but it makes sense.
Hope he does end up doing some French language MMA stuff.

he'd make a great Luke Cage "Powerman" if he could get a Harlem accent..... so unlikely.

there are not a lot of jacked black superheroes, and even less french ones.


but chieck does have an air of "HOLY SHIT THAT GUYS GONNA EAT ME!"
the first fights i saw him in were against Dan Evensen & Mustapha Al Turk when i started watching seriously again, so i was a bit mesmerized.

It would also suggest that the legality of MMA in France isn't anywhere near resolution.



He can still get fights in smaller promotions, i hope he doesn't retire just yet.

I see Kongo in the typical movie role: Ex-army dude with a long history of combat who now wants to live a quiet life in the mountains. Likes to read. Cook. Grow vegetables. But his wife gets murdered and his daughter kidnapped, so he has to go out there and find her leaving a trail of total destruction in his wake. That kind of thing.

.. in French of course. I love French cinema.
