Yes, as I've said before, Cro Cop is a very good matchup for Kongo compared to any of the other top HW:s in the world. Both like to stand up, so Kongo doesn't have to worry about the takedowns, and can move in close where Cro Cop is less effective and where Kongo is in his best element.

It's just that Cro Cop is a top HW and Kongo really isn't, and Cro Cop will probably be quite aggressive after that humiliating loss. If Kongo gets passive in the cage he's probably going to be knocked out.

But, this could be more a kickbox match then MMA and if that is the case get ready to be disappointed by CroCop again. You thought Napao's elbows affected his game wait til you see what Kongo's knees can do to it.

Do you honestly have any facts that back up Kongo being a better kick boxer? Its complete theory...

Sure, CCs UFC showings werent the best...but he definitley didn't fight like he usually does. It doesn't take away anything he did in the past. Kongo hasn't accomplished anything yet... theres nothing in his striking that proves he is a better kick boxer.
From my knowledge he knocked out 4 cans with losing records outside of the UFC, and then TKO and KOd two C level fighters in the UFC. So what?

I think CC will win, but if CC wants to play in Kongo's world - there's a chance (a decent one actually) that Kongo will put him down.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

I would love to see some Cro Cop Ground N Pound. If he shot in for the takedown and manhandled Kongo, I think I would cry tears of joy.

You obviously didn't see the Wanderlei CC fight

Good point. If Cro Cop presses the fight, he kills his opponent. If you watch his first Wand match, or with Fedor, he ends up being the one who circles, and eventually loses.

I think Cro Cop will push this fight. He's pissed.

Rating Kongo=244 Filipovic=251 And just by watching the two at what they do.
