With that said... Kongo might just try for a takedown... good gameplanning isn't quite his style.
Mir could always pull guard and sub him there too.

God damn it Kongo. lol
Yeah kinda like Sylvia did it. Im still not quite sure what Sylvia was going for with that takedown of his, but I hope he learned something from it.

Bad game plan on Mir's part. I like Mir but attempting to outstrike Kongo just doesn't seem like a good strategy when his biggest attribute is Kongo's weakest. I hope Mir's just saying that as a bit of psychology so that when they do fight he takes it to the ground and subs him.

Good please let him be playing mind games. I really hope he is not stupid enough to try to strike with Kongo when he so superior on the ground that he can finish him there in under two minutes.

Yeah I mean he tried to out-grapple HH which definitely cost him the fight and out-clinch/out-wrestle Cain which arguably cost him the fight too lol

It seems sometimes he wants to beat people at their own game to prove something but simply isn't well rounded enough to do so and it ends up costing him the fight..

Yawn..... of course its mind games! Not only that, but mind games of the most unimaginative kind. Jesus, Mir. Kongo will see that shit coming from a mile away. Try better. D-.

You traded with a sick puppy version of Nog when he was at 3%. Yeah, you're deff a great striker now...now I am sure I is putting my money on Kongo. Good night my sweet, sweet prince.
