Cheik Kongo, should he have been DQ'ed?
Not only as a fighter am I posting this, but just as a man in general. I am watching this fight and studying it to see what Kongo did to keep Cro Cop backing up and I just found out CC broke his rib in the first round. Not only that, but CC's genitalia was pretty close to terminated last night.
First off, Kongo does it in the 2nd round the first time with his crappy Muay Thai clinch (which if he just elevated it a bit he could give this knee's right to the body) instead he got CC right in the nuts. No point taken off, okay... moving on!
Now second, we are in the 4th round and CC is again backed up in the cage while Kongo commences the Muay Thai clinch. Not only does he do it once, he delivers a total of 3 knee's to the groin to CC! From the warning in the 2nd round and the point taken off the other one and then him deciding to keep doing it, he should have been disqualified.
And here is the thing about taking "5 minutes" to regain yourself after this happens. YOU CANT. In a fight, you need to breathe and when you get knee'd in the groin it makes your stomach weezy and you feel dizzy and you cant even catch a good breath even if you tried for a good 10 minutes. CC being a croatian decided to just go with it, and it ended up costing him the fight.
I'm not a fan of either, but that was just plain BS last night. I can see Bisping getting the decision to prevent a riot from happening. But this? no reason!
