Other than winning a dec over Cro Cop...right after CC was headkicked into mediocrity, Kongo's best win ever is probably Paul Beuntello.

If he had Roy's Physique he would have been out of the UFC already and would have very few fans.

He wrestled the terrible grapplers. He wall and stalled the weaker fighters with decent striking. He got out-struck and KO'd by the good strikers. People like to call him a striker, but I saw far more wall and stall/wrestling attempted from him than I saw striking clinics.

When he fought Yvel he was lit up. When he fought Barry he was lit up until he found a hail mary KO that Pat ran into. When he fought Hunt and Roy he never had a chance standing.

Kongo won a lot of fights because they repeatedly gave him the likes of Dan Evenson, Al Turk, Paul Beuntello, Shawn Jordan, Assuerio Silva.

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...
GPS's french canadian, not french. there is a difference.

yes, but still, GSP's french enough to be a great draw in France, trust me. Everybody knows GSP here and everybody tunes in to watch him fight.

He's way more of a draw here than Kongo ever was

and I don't see any other french in the UFC drawing more viewers as for today than GSP

Actually I couldn't even name all the french guys in the UFC right now aside of Kongo, the only french MMA fighter whose name comes to mind isn't in the UFC, it's Xavier Foupa-Pokam who fought in the UFC a while ago, lost twice, got cut and now he's in other orgs.

Tarec Saffiedine is actually from belgium, depending on how he fares in the UFC, he could potentially be a draw too, but it's a fairly long shot to imagine him fighting for the title. He got a nice record, stats wise, but hasn't really fought anybody relevant aside of Nate Marquart.

he is, actually

but as long as MMA is illegal here, only a handful of fighters will be able to get to the UFC, and none of them really are contenders

You have Francis Carmont who is making his way up the rankings. He's still unproven if you ask me, but he has a chance of breaking top ten at least and being a gatekeeper

That's actually quite big problem.
