Ok, in simple terms he is the most boring fighter in the UFC imo.
I honestly do not see how, three of his fights in the UFC have ended in KO or TKO. I could maybe understand you saying that his fight against Assuerio Silva or Carmelo Marrero was boring but that's just about it. Three KO/TKO's and good fights against Crocop and Herring. I'd like you to be more specific what was boring about his fights, Crocop was a fun schooling and Herring was all over the place in terms of ground and stand up.
I still haven't his ground game. I was not impressed by his performances on the ground, and i think his stand up is over rated.
Wait, what? He won the world muay thai championship in 2004 and his stand-up is overrated? If anything, its underrated. How many times do I have to say this about his ground game, IT IS NOT THAT BAD. He hasn't been finished on the ground ONCE in the UFC (Or ever, really). He isn't going to be throwing round omoplatas and whatnot any time soon (although he has won by submission before) but his ground game isn't even close to being as bad as people on this forum make it out to be. If it was even half as bad as people say it is, he would have been EASILY finished, a long, long, long time ago.
He beat an uninspired Cro Cop, (with of course using the shots to the nutz, seems to be a favoured technique against him).
Uninspired? According to cro cop he has in the best fighting shape of his life. He had apparently bought a cage especially for the fight and everything. Even die hard Cro cop nuthuggers say that the first round looked like their boy was back. It's too bad Crocop has no heart as of late, because he left that fight a broken man. I thought the talk about the shots to the groin was over but clearly it isn't, nor will it ever be. Crocop was given 'as much time as he needed', he barely took one minute, he was fine.
His last win was against Dan Evesen, and he wants a title shot
. Has an interview saying he's 5-2 in the UFC and deserves a shot, you don't go from an undercard fight and being 1-1 in 2008 to getting a title shot.
I'm not going to defend his saying he wants a title shot, I don't personally think he deserves one after a win over such a can. But show me a fighter who doesn't want a title shot, Kongo is merely saying what every fighter thinks.
The fighters he has fought have favoured him..he gets a lot of stand up fighters, and choosed to lay with them on the ground.
Wait what? Since when does he get a lot of stand-up fighters? You must be unfamiliar with his record because most of his opponents in the UFC have actually been GROUND fighters. Wellisch, Marrero, Silva, and Herring (arguable), are GROUND fighters. Not to mention nearly everyone Kongo has fought since Marrero was apparently going to 'finish Kongo in the first' (according to most people here).
You put him against the cream of the crop in the UFC HW division, and most people will tell you the best ones are BJJ freaks (Mir, Werdum, Gonzaga and Noguiera) and all of them have pretty solid stand up, (with the exception of Mir) and now Randy's back who would put Kongo on his back with ease, and Brock Lesnar would surely do the same thing....The UFC are trying to build him up, but he'll never be anywhere near the belt unless he improves his ground game drastically, not to the point where he just lays there...
Well did I say he is contender material? Nah I didn't, but it is just stupid to call him a terrible fighter. He has the best stand-up in the HW division (imo) and is constantly improving on the ground. I mean watch his fight against Marrero then watch his fight against Herring, then tell me with a straight face that his ground game hasn't improved.
