He also kinda tried to become a wrestler for a while there. Pushing dudes against the cage doing his best Randy impersonation. Kongo was a big waste of potential.

For a guy who had never been sub'd and has a decent base, not sure why he is so scared of the TD? Seems like he would learn over time to let his strikes go if he was capable. Throughout his whole career he has fought very few ground specialists. Mir...Herring I guess??...literally no one else...

He caged a lot of guys who were not wrestlers. He chose to takedown or grind on guys with any standup.

While the article may be right....I have no idea of what exactly he was afraid of. He fought mostly ok strikers or lumps of nothing like Al Turk.

Except he somehow got the idea that dirty boxing was mostly about as many nutshots as possible...

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

...Kongo has 10 TKO finishes in his MMA career. To say Kongo's striking is a myth is pretty ridiculous and far fetched dude. Just ask Cro-cop if Kongo's striking is a myth. Hope you at least saw that fight...

Couldn't agree more.

It's sad how fast people forget what happened just a few fights ago, Hunt and Nelson are very talented stand up fighters, no shame in losing to them.

Is/was Kongo championship level? no, but he's capable of controlling better strikers against the cage, taking down those with poor wrestling and out striking wrestlers.

He is a Perennial top-10 fighter well worth the 70K he was getting to fight for the UFC.

Cro Cop's balls will feed you a story of horror and pain.

Kongo can feck off and shove a baguette up his ass as far as I'm concerned.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

I don't know which is worse, to see him go or to have him stay for so long with great potential, and do nothing with it.

as far as the french audience goes, I think GSP's our draw. And they got a few other frenchmen in the UFC lately too.

Kongo was never gonna fight for the title and did the HW div really need another gatekeeper? they have more keepers than they have gates...
