      After being away from Bellator for nearly 3 years, Minakov is back, and looking to get back into the title picture. He came out swinging, landed some big punches, and Kongo tried to keep him under control with some basic clinching, and a knee to the groin. Round one goes to Minakov for landing some big shots, while Kongo was mostly just stalling.
     Kongo threw some leg kicks early in the second round, and then he spent most of the round backing up, while Minakov chased him around the cage, winging punches, but mostly missing. This fight kind of sucks so far. Kongo finished that round strong in the final minute, so... Maybe he stole the round? I don't know. Minakov looks exhausted, and Kongo looks like he is bored.
     Kongo started the final round with a series of brutal leg kicks, and Minakov looked gassed. He then caught a kick and scored a takedown a minute into the round. Minakov went for an Ezekiel choke, but couldn't finish it. Kongo finally stood up with 30 seconds left in the fight, he unloaded with some big punches & knees from the clinch, and again, finished the round strong, but he got completely controlled on the ground for 4+ minutes, so... Minakov SHOULD win this fight, but I wouldn't be shocked by a weird split-decision or something. The judges gave the unanimous decision to Cheick Kongo, and that's the first loss of Minakov's career. That fight sucked.

      These guys traded some random strikes, Johnson got sloppy and started throwing wild punches a minute into the opening round while rushing forward, Kongo sort of smushed Johnson's face with a right hand that barely looked like it connected at all, Johnson collapsed, Kongo punched him a few more times on the ground, and Johnson was out. That was a nice win for Kongo.

      Ayala rushed forward to start this fight, threw a few big punches, and then they ended up in a clinching stalemate. They eventually split up, Kongo landed a big leg kick, Ayala rushed forward again, Kongo dropped him with one punch, and then finished the fight with a series of punches on the ground, where Ayala was already out cold. That was a nice win for Cheick Kongo. It was also a terrible gameplan for Ayala.

      Sakai spent the first round backing Kongo up against the fence, as Kongo circled around the outside, just waiting for something to happen. Sakai won the first 4 minutes by controlling the center of the cage, and the Kongo clinched and pressed him against the fence for 30 seconds, and then Sakai spun him around and press Kongo against the fence for 30 seconds. That round sucked. I would probably score it for Sakai though.
     Kongo pressured Sakai in the second round, and pressed him against the fence, where he took him down one minute into the round. Sakai stood back up a few seconds later, and Kongo continued to try to take him down again. Sakai hit him with a few random elbows, but for the most part, the entire round consisted of Kongo down on his knees, praying for a takedown, while keeping Sakai pinned upright against the fence. The referee finally reset them with 45 seconds left in the round, and Kongo went for the same lame takedown again. I guess I'm giving that round to Kongo, but this fight has been terrible so far.
     The final round was a repeat of the second round, with Kongo pressuring Sakai against the fence, and then he went for a takedown. Sakai spun him around at one point, and pressed Kongo against the fence, and then Kongo spun him around again. To be honest, Kongo used to be a fun fighter, kind of, but now he's basically just turned into a tall, lean, Sumo wrestler. I guess I would score this fight 29-28 for Kongo, since he pressed Sakai against the fence for two rounds, but these guys both looked terrible, and I really don't want to see either of them fight again. Two judges agreed with me, giving the split-decision victory to Cheick Kongo.

      Thompson was moving around the outside a lot, and Kongo appeared to be slightly afraid. Kongo finally clipped Thompson with some heavy punches 90 seconds into the round, and as soon as I thought he had Thompson in trouble, Thompson clipped Kongo, and forced him to shoot for a takedown, which Thompson easily stuffed. They clinched, and then Kongo threw a knee to Thompson's groin. When the fight started back up, Kongo kind of rushed Thompson and took him to the ground, and beat him up with some short shots against the fence. Kongo was mostly just grinding Thompson against the fence, but he postured up a few times and dropped some heavy shots that nearly blasted Thompson's head through the mat. Thompson stood back up with 30 seconds left in the round, but Kongo continued to press him against the fence until the end of the round. Kongo threw some heavy knees to the body from the clinch to finish out the round, and the referee had to jump in to save Thompson as the bell sounded. Round one clearly goes to Kongo.
     The second round started with Thompson rushing forward, clinching, and pressing Kongo into the fence. Kongo spun him around 90 seconds into the round, dropped for a deep double leg, and he dumped Thompson to the ground again. Kongo worked some solid ground & pound, and as the round progressed, his shots became harder & harder. Thompson spun around and tried to setup a kneebar, but he was too squashed against the fence, so Kongo was able to step out of it, and then he continued to drop heavy punches & elbows against the fence. That was a true ass beating, delivered by Kongo, leading to a 20-18 lead for Kongo going into the final round.
     These guys clinched early in the final round, Kongo pressed Thompson against the fence, he dumped him to the ground one minute in, pressed him against the fence, and continued to work his ground & pound with 4 minutes left to work, and this time, he passed to full mount. Kongo postured up 2 minutes into the round, unloaded with some heavy punches, the referee warned Thompson, telling him he needs to defend himself, but Kongo continued to just beat the shit out of him. With 45 seconds left in the round, Kongo dropped some heavy elbows that I thought might end the fight, but Thompson was doing JUST ENOUGH to hang in there. That was pretty much a one-sided ass beating delivered by Kongo for a solid 13 minutes or so. All the judges agreed, giving him the unanimous decision victory after he beat the shit out of his former training partner.

      Kongo threw a couple of jabs, he backed up toward the fence, which seemed like a terrible idea, but as soon as Johnson clinched, Kongo spun him around and took control, pressing Johnson against the fence. They hugged each other for a few seconds, Johnson shot for a takedown, Kongo looked like he was going for a standing guillotine choke, and then the fight was paused because apparently he hit Johnson with a knee to the Johnson? Once the fight started back up, Kongo backed up toward the fence again, while throwing jabs, really making it look like he was trying to set a trap for Johnson, otherwise Kongo just has a terrible gameplan. Johnson blasted him with a punch and then pressed Kongo against the fence for some more clinching. Kongo landed a lot of short knees to the body of Johnson, but for the most part, Johnson looked like he just wanted to wear down Kongo with a lot of hugging. Big John reset them due to inactivity, so they traded a few punches, and then Johnson shot for a takedown, which turned into Kongo shooting for a takedown instead, and he actually took Johnson down, mounted him, and unloaded with some massive punches & elbows. Johnson tied him up to avoid taking TOO much damage, but it was still enough to win the round for the 41 year old Cheick Kongo.
     Kongo started the second round by backing up toward the fence again, and this time, Johnson was able to take him down 15 seconds into the round, landing in half mount. Kongo crawled back toward the fence, tried to sit up with a front choke, but Johnson passed to full mount, and then took Kongo's back one minute into the round. Johnson tried to lock on a rear-naked choke, but they were in a sitting position, so he couldn't get proper leverage with his hips, and Kongo did a good job keeping his chin tucked. Johnson spent pretty much the entire round in the sitting backpack position, but he never really came close to finishing the choke. He just kept digging for it, and Kongo was able to easily defend. Kongo tried to spin out of it, but that just allowed Johnson to end up in full mount with a minute left in the round. Johnson did almost zero damage from full mount before the end of the round, with all of his elbows being blocked. With a little more skill, Johnson could have had a 10-8 round there, but I scored it 10-9, since he never really came close to finishing Kongo at all, even though he controlled him for the entire 5 minutes. I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
     Johnson started the final round by whiffing with a big punch, he shot for a takedown, Kongo spun him around, and pressed Johnson against the fence. Kongo was digging hard for a double leg takedown, while Johnson was practically doing the splits to avoid being put on his ass. One minute into the round, Kongo completed the takedown, ending up on top in half mount. Kongo landed some short punches & elbows, while pressing Johnson against the fence. Johnson struggled to get back to his feet with 2 minutes left in the round, but Kongo held on tight, stood up, and yanked Johnson back down to the ground again with 90 seconds left in the round. Kongo continued to pound on him with short punches and elbows up until the final bell. This wasn't a very exciting fight, but it was a competitive 29-28 win for Cheick Kongo in my opinion, but one judge declared it a draw, making it a "majority" decision, against a guy that most people thought could beat him. Congrats to Kongo for the hard fought tough victory.

      The first round was a VERY slow paced round. Queiroz spent the first half of the round stalking Kongo, walking him down, and throwing (and missing) a decent number of jabs. Kongo blasted him with some really hard leg kicks, and clinched a little bit, Queiroz took him to the ground, and they stood back up for the final minute of the round. Queiroz sort of landed a spinning backfist near the end of the round. That round could go either way, but I'm leaning toward Queiroz so far, based on the small takedown, and his forward movement. Kongo's leg kicks MIGHT have been enough to steal the round for him though.
      Kongo DESTROYED Queiroz's lead leg to start the second round, with nonstop leg kicks. Queiroz got him to back off with some punches though. Two minutes into the second round, and I'm thinking it's a pretty safe bet that Kongo is going to finish this fight with those leg kicks. Those kicks are fucking brutal. Queiroz threw a nice spinning back fist, but Kongo blocked it. Queiroz then took him down with a nice trip, with 2 minutes left in the round. Kongo just tried to tie up Queiroz on the ground to avoid taking damage, and Queiroz was struggling to try to pass Kongo's half guard. So this round comes down to a takedown & top control for Queiroz vs. some brutal leg kicks delivered by Kongo. I'm ASSUMING Kongo is ahead, 2-0 going into the final round, but this fight COULD be all tied up, depending on what kind of judges we have here tonight.
      Queiroz landed some decent punches to start the final round, Kongo landed a couple of leg kicks, and then Queiroz dove forward, putting Kongo on his back again. Queiroz was once again stuck in half guard though. Queiroz pinned Kongo against the cage, and hit him a few times, but Kongo just used the cage to stand back up. Kongo threw a few punches, and then rushed forward for a takedown of his own, but Queiroz stayed standing, so they just clinched against the cage. The referee broke them up due to inactivity, and Queiroz blasted Kongo in the mouth, knocking him to the ground, and then he jumped on him, but once again was caught in his half guard. In the end, I feel like this fight has split-decision written all over it. Queiroz pretty clearly won that final round, and the other two rounds could have MAYBE gone either way, but PROBABLY go to Kongo, so... What do the judges have to say about it? One judge gave Kongo all 3 rounds which is ridiculous, since that last round was 100% Queiroz's round. The other two judges split the decision, 29-28 going either way, so Kongo wins this one via a hard fought split-decision victory. I have to admit, I'm still wondering what happened to the Top 10 Contender version of Cheick Kongo. He used to be a beast, and he showed some of that in the second round of this fight, but he seems a little too comfortable going to decisions as of late.

      Volkov is a huge guy, in that Semmy Schilt sort of way. With that being said, Kongo's gameplan was clearly to take him to the ground, and beat him up against the cage, and that's exactly what he did, leaving Volkov's face a bloody mess after the first round. The rest of the fight was more of the same, with Kongo taking Volkov to the ground, and beating him up with punches. Nice win for Kongo, but for such a dominating performance, it wasn't as exciting as some of those old school KO victories from Cheick Kongo, where he would finish guys with his striking while standing. Nice solid decision victory for Kongo, in a fight that he was technically the underdog in.

      The first round was pretty boring, until King Mo secured a takedown, and wrestled Kongo around for a couple of minutes. Kongo started the second round by chasing King Mo, and looked really sloppy in the process, eventually resulting in Kongo getting pressed up against the cage, and eventually taken back down to the ground. King Mo is the King of Lay & Pray. This fight had the potential to be fun, but Kongo has lost his magic as of late, and King Mo is boring as shit. Kongo beat up Lawal a little bit in the final round, chasing him down and throwing slow strikes, but Mo was able to take him to the ground again, where he laid on top of Kongo for the rest of the round. This was an easy fight to score in my opinion. 30-27 in favor of King Mo. I have absolutely no idea how anyone scored this fight for Kongo, unless they just confused the two fighters, since they look somewhat similar from a distance.

      Well, I'm always interested in seeing Cheick Kongo fight, because of his UFC roots, and Lavar Johnson is always fun to watch for a couple of minutes at least, since he tends to knock people's heads off. With that being said, Lavar Johnson started out strong, throwing heavy punches, got sloppy, Kongo took him to the ground, Kongo beat him up for a couple of minutes, Johnson gave him his back, Kongo locked on the rear-naked choke, and Johnson panicked and tapped out. Decent win for Cheick Kongo.

      This fight was almost embarrassing for Cheick Kongo, almost getting finished in the first round by some dude I've never heard of. BUT! After taking an ass beating, Kongo was able to out-cardio Smith, almost finishing him by the end of the first round, so I ended up scoring the first round as a draw. The second round was all Kongo, throwing kicks, knees, punches, and he even out-wrestled Smith, eventually finishing him with some big knees & punches up against the cage. Good win for Kongo.

      This fight started with Minakov throwing a punch combination, ending with a kick to the groin of Kongo (in the first 10 seconds). When the fight started back up, Minakov clinched with Kongo, and took him to the ground against the cage. Kongo started to fight his way back to his feet, MInakov clinched with his head, punched him a few times, and then lifted him off the ground with a massive knee to the groin. This time Herb Dean took a point from Minakov. The fight started back up, and Kongo was throwing some heavy hands, but Minakov knocked him on his ass, and then dropped down for a leg lock. Kongo mostly just sat there for a minute, and then decided to engage in a foot lock battle, dropping back for a heel hook of his own, which seemed kind of silly. They both punched each other a few times from that position, before Minakov finally decided to move back into half mount, where he beat up Kongo for the final 40 seconds or so of the opening round.
     The second round started, and Minakov was working his clinch against the cage, and then he threw a knee to Kongo's slower stomach (just above the cup), and Kongo tried to call for another break, but Herb Dean was having none of it, and told them to continue fighting. Minakov rocked Kongo with a few punches late in the round, and then threw him to the ground, grabbing Kongo's back for the final 30 seconds. That's 2-0 for Minakov, if you don't count the point taken in the first round for the groin shots.
     Minakov started the third round with another clinch, tripping Kongo to the ground early, and beating him up against the cage for the first 3 minutes of the round, before Kongo finally flipped him over and moved into top position. Minakov tried to scramble back to his feet, but Kongo held him there for a while, until Minakov flipped him back over with a minute left in the round. I have Minakov ahead, 3 rounds to none, going into the fourth round.
     Kongo started the fourth round by taking Minakov to the ground. Minakov stood back up, and Kongo took him back down. Kongo beat him up with some elbows to the thighs on the ground for a couple of minutes. Kongo mostly just smothered him for the duration of that round, which was enough to win the round for Kongo, but not enough to get him much closer to winning the fight. Including the point lost in the first round, I have the score 3-2 going into the final round, with Kongo needing a finish, or else the best he can hope for is a draw on the scorecards.
     Minakov started the final round by securing a takedown in the center of the cage. He beat up Kongo on the ground for the duration of the round, leading to a pretty clear 48-46 scorecard, in favor of Minakov, who retains his Heavyweight Championship, against his highest profile opponent to date. I can't help but wonder what has happened to Kongo's killer striking that he displayed in some of his earlier UFC fights.

      Kongo spent the first two rounds, picking apart Graham with his striking, moving forward, landing jabs, and kicks, and controlling the pace of most of the fight. In the third round, Kongo took Graham to the ground, and brutally beat him with elbows, cutting open his face, and painting his face red with blood. Graham made a comeback with about 2 minutes left, and beat up Kongo for a little bit, but Kongo weathered the storm, and continued to take the fight to Graham, taking him down one more time from the clinc with about one minute left in the final round. Pretty decent win for Kongo, but the way his feet seem to slip & slide all over the place, makes me nervous for his potential to get knocked the fuck out in future fights due to sloppy footwork. For this fight though, Kongo pretty clearly beat Graham's ass, especially in that final round.

      Kongo secured a takedown to start this fight, but he wasn't able to do anything with it, as Godbeer crawled up the fence, into a clinch, where he landed a groin shot which paused the fight. Once the fight started again, Godbeer came out swinging, and Kongo took him back down to the ground. They clinched some more, there were a couple more "near-groin shots" delivered by Godbeer. Overall, the first round was kind of boring, but I'd give it to Kongo, especially since he stamped Godbeer's forehead with a giant knee at the very end of the round. The second round started with another clinch, this time Kongo was behind Godbeer, launching big knees to the back of Godbeer's thighs. Godbeer spun around to face Kongo, and then Kongo started blasting Godbeer's body with brutal knees, Godbeer shot for a takedown, and Kongo finished him with more brutal knees & uppercuts. Really nice win for Cheick Kongo.

      You know, a lot of people still consider him a joke, but as far as I'm concerned, I had Roy Nelson ranked as the #2 Heavyweight in the entire world going into this fight (and Kongo ranked somewhere around 9 or so). After knocking out the striker with one big punch, I actually DO think that Roy Nelson deserves a title shot right now. So, he just called out "Whoever wins at UFC 160", and I'll be really interested in hearing if Dana White is going to let that happen (since he hasn't been a fan of Nelson in the past). Great first round KO victory by Nelson though! BAM BAM!!!

      This fight was crap. So far this entire event has been boring. Shawn Jordan is a big dude, but other than trying to press Kongo up against the cage, he didn't really do much of anything in this fight (other than elbow Kongo in the balls in the first round). Kongo on the other hand, is also a big dude, who tried to strike some, but for the most part, he just looked tired & bored. This fight sucked. Kongo wins via unanimous decision.

      Yes! I was hoping this would happen, and it did! Mark Hunt returns to Japan, and just like the good ol' days, he knocked out his opponent! The first round started up, Cheick Kongo looked like the scary Godzilla like creature that he is, and Hunt punched him in the face hard, repeatedly, knocking him down twice, and the second time it was all over. Good clean fast fight!

Decision
15:00
      This fight was kind of cool, and kind of sucked. The first round was a lot of standing around wasting time by both fighters. I gave it to Kongo due to better strikes. I gave the second round to Mitrione, because he really started to turn up the heat at the end of the second round, and I THOUGHT he would come back out and beat Kongo in the third. Instead, Kongo slammed Mitrione multiple times in the third round, beat him up, completely destroyed him, and won the unanimous decision. Solid fight by Kongo, and solid fight for Mitrione if it wasn't for his slow start.

      HOLY SHIT! This was one of the craziest fights ever! Pat Barry knocked out Cheick Kongo, TWICE, in the first two minutes of the fight! The problem is, Kongo wasn't out, and he somehow got back up, on wobbly legs, and knocked Barry the fuck out, and when I say "The fuck out", I MEAN, "THE FUCK OUT!!!" HOLY HORSE SHIT, that was a crazy fucking fight. I feel horrible for Barry, because he had every reason to believe that he was moments away from finishing this fight, so yeah, sucks for him, but HOLY SHIT, Kongo is a beast.

Draw
15:00
      Man, two big guys like this, SOMEBODY should have been knocked out. I scored the fight 29-28 in favor of Cheick Kongo, and so did all 3 judges, BUT, since Kongo was blatantly holding onto Browne's shorts during several moments in the fight, the referee took away a point, and that made this fight a draw. I mean, you can't hold shorts, I understand that's a foul, but when guys get poked in the eyes multiple times, and kicked in the nuts, and still don't get more than a "stern warning", I don't see why Kongo should have his win stolen from him, just because he was "grabbing the back of Browne's leg". I mean, like I said, yeah, it's a foul, so take the point, but if that's going to make the fight a draw, then as far as FIGHTING is concerned, I think Kongo still deserves the win, so I'm going to give him the points for a win.

Submission (Elbows to the Body)

      This fight was fine and everything, since Buentello always comes to fight, but ultimately, he is nowhere NEAR Kongo in the rankings, so I'm not sure how he got this fight. I thought he retired years ago. With that being said, Kongo pretty much beat his ass all 3 rounds, fouled him a couple of times with illegal knees & elbows, and eventually, forced Buentello to tapout early in the third round, due to elbows to his thighs on the ground. Kongo needs some better competition.

      Frank Mir looks REALLY fucking impressive. He's gained weight, all muscle, his striking has greatly improved over the past couple of years, and his submissions are still just as deadly as they've ever been. Kongo seemed terrified of him, and rightfully so. Mir threw a left hook that nearly knocked out Kongo early in the first round, followed it up with a tight guillotine choke, and Kongo passed the fuck out. Frank Mir is amazing. I'm really looking forward to Mir vs. Lesnar 3, assuming Lesnar gets healthy again.

      This fight was pretty incredible. I was fully expecting Cheick Kongo to win, and get a title shot, but he got completed dominated in this fight. The first 30 seconds of each round, consisted of Kongo nearly knocking out Velasquez, but the other 4:30 of each round, consisted of Velasquez slamming Kongo all over the octagon, and pounding on his face with his fist. In the end, Velasquez earns the unanimous decision victory.

      This was the debut of Mostapha Al Turk in the UFC, and I sort of had high hopes for him, even though I had never seen him fight in any other organizations either. He came out looking decent, pretty much nullifying Kongo's striking, by staying close, but after both fighters hit each other in the nuts with their knees, Kongo got pissed and attacked Al Turk, brutally beating him into a bloody pulp. Kongo wins via TKO near the end of the first round.

      Was this a joke? Seriously... Dan Evensen has the dexterity of Tim Sylvia, the face of the singer from Puddle of Mudd, and the body of a kangaroo... He came out, kind of sucked, Cheick Kongo stalled for a few minutes, and then with about 10 seconds left in the first round, Kongo threw a random jab, Evensen fell to the ground in dramatic fashion (did he throw the fight?) and Kongo followed it up with some ground & pound to make sure he got the first round TKO victory. During the post-fight interview, Kongo said he wants the title. WHAT THE FUCK HAS THE UFC HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION COME TO!?! And how does barely beating DAN EVENSEN make you one of the best fighters in the world? This fight was ridiculous.

      Well, this was a surprisingly good fight... Heath Herring was 100x's more aggressive compared to what he's been doing it most of his fights lately, and Cheick Kongo's ground game was 100x's better than I've ever seen it... Herring was explosive, Kongo's ground game was fairly legit, and what was supposed to be a striking fight, turned into a competitive wrestling match, and at the end of 3 rounds, Heath Herring wins by split-decision... Good fight overall by both fighters, and I'm left REALLY missing the "knees to the head" being legal in Pride & Japan... PLEASE BRING BACK KNEES TO THE HEAD TO THE DOWNED OPPONENT!!! WE NEED THOSE BACK PLEASE!!! Thanks...

      Holy Christ man... Last time we saw Mirko Cro-Cop, he got absolutely destroyed by Gabriel Gonzaga... Now, for his comeback fight, he gets his ass beat by Cheick Kongo, via decision (and it wasn't even a questionable decision)... Mirko won the first round by taking down Kongo, but he pretty much got beat up for the last 2 rounds... This wasn't a very exciting fight, Mirko kept walking backwards, and Kongo spent the fight just picking away at him with kicks & knees to the body... Boring fight, sort of, and Cheick Kongo moves on up the ladder I guess... Where does this leave Cro-Cop?

      This fight was pretty decent I guess... Cheick Kongo is an absolute monster on his feet, which he really displayed during the third round, by absolutely dominating Silva while standing with him... Most of the fight though, consisted of Assuerio Silva taking Kongo to the ground (by lifting him up, and slamming him) which LOOKS good, be he did no damage with it... Once they were on the ground, Assuerio just layed on him the entire fight... So after 3 rounds of semi-back & forth action, Cheick Kongo wins by split decision... (I had scored the fight with Kongo winning fairly easily, simply because he did 20x's the damage that Silva did...) Good fight for Kongo, but I don't see Assuerio Silva coming back to the UFC anytime soon...

      FUCK... This fight was kind of boring... I honestly thought that Cheick Kongo had a shot at becoming the next UFC Heavyweight Champion... He's been crushing everyone in his path so far, with his great striking game... The problem is, Carmello Marrero (wrestler) took Kongo down at will, OFTEN, and showed that Kongo has absolutely no ground game whatsoever... Anyways, after 3 rounds of Marrero laying on top of Kongo, preventing him from using any offense, Carmello Marrero wins by split-decision...

KO (Knee)

      Christian Wellisch is a good submission guy, which is somewhat rare in the heavyweight division... Cheick Kongo is a bad ass Muay Thai fighter... So whenever they were on their feet, Cheick had the upperhand, and when on the ground, it SEEMED as if Wellisch had the upperhand, until we all realized that Cheick Kongo has some great submission defense skills... With that being said, Wellisch tried to get Kongo to tap, Kongo said fuck all that shit, and then knocked out Wellisch with a brutal knee to the face... Cheick Kongo in my opinion, is going to be the next UFC Heavyweight Champion... Wellisch is good, Kongo is FUCKING AWESOME...

TKO (Doctor Stoppage)

      This was a pretty awesome fight, with Gilbert Aldana taking Kongo to the ground multiple times with some HUGE takedowns. Once they were on the ground, Aldana wasn't able to do much, but the takedowns were NICE. Back on their feet though, closer to the end of the first round, Kongo started teeing off with some big knees, and eventually cut the eye of Aldana badly enough to where the doctor felt Aldana could no longer continue. Great fight by both fighters.
