i hope for franks sake he doesnt underestimate Kongos punching power. he probably has a 90% to 10% chance of winning i feel but theres always a chance however unlikely. I also feel that if but some miracle it gets into rounds 2-3 Franks cardio just might be an issue with muscle mass. Ill guess well see, but like most of the world expect Mir by Sub in rnd 1 or 2.

There are BJJ BB's who use size and strength to their advantage quite well, Ricardo Arona, Paulo Filho, Roy Nelson...

Yep, gaining 20lbs = instant amazing take-down defense.

Those guys do very well against non-wrestlers at or below their size. When they face good wrestlers (at an appreciable size--give or take 20 pounds) they are tooled. And I have to say that their success against non-wrestlers usually has to to do with their superior wrestling skills compared to their opponents.

You both have a good point, the problem is guys like Monson etc, have trouble getting the wrestlers down and typically your big strong compact BJJ guys are typically far superior top grappler's than they are from the bottom and they have difficulty securing TD's against guys who spent the better part of there life learning to defend against being taken down.

Very good point.
Jeff Monson is another great example. He's absolutely shredded and his bread and butter is BJJ.
