Kongo will only stand up with fighers that don't have any stand-up, or he'll just knee you in the balls.
I haven't watched the fight in a while but if Herring bull-rushing you at the beginning of each round means you were hesitant to stand-up then I guess Kongo was hesitant to standup in that fight.

This is a good match up. Both guys like to stand and brawl. I'm taking Kongo by TKO but i'm sure Hardonk will bring it. Hordonk is actually on a 2 or 3 fight win streak right now.

That scared me lol, it cut off the Hardonk. So I thought it was Antonio Nogiera lol.

Good match up though, whoever wins should vault itself into the title picture.

It's an interesting matchup dictated entirely by what the game plans are.

Standing Hardonk has the paper advantage, but doesn't Kongo have quite a bit of reach on him? Someone correct me please if im wrong. Ground i think it's Kongo.

I'm looking forward to this one a lot. These are the fights i like....ones i have trouble picking.

Kongo will take the easily-taken-down Hardonk and pound him out inside of two rounds. Pity because I much prefer Hardonk.

Why he was 6-3 in Cage Rage at HW.

Al-Turk is a solid control grappler not a submission guy and when you have no takedown skills being a control grappler is worthless.

This fight should be great, unless Kongo wants to start proving that he has a ground game some more
