frustrating fight to watch

velasquez is soooo one dimensional, but he’s crazy good at it, I think another step up in competition will be too much for him right now.

pocketmouth Says, in 6-13-2009 at 19:42:47 from    

Damn, that was frustrating. They were on the feet for about a minute total and Kongo would have destroyed Cain if he had been able to keep it up for another 2 minutes or so.

crazyrams2002 Says, in 6-13-2009 at 19:45:23 from    

Damn, good control.

HaVoK Says, in 6-13-2009 at 19:47:02 from    

Great aggression and control by Cain. Congo has a lot more heart then I ever thought he did. If only he knew how to separate better.

girogiullo Says, in 6-13-2009 at 19:48:21 from    

velasquez is very very very bad ass!!
next ufc champ

Cain beat kongo like a bongo

astac07 Says, in 6-13-2009 at 19:59:11 from    

Yeah! thanks Bruno!

J_satan_666 Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:01:57 from    

kongo’s game plan sucked. there were a lot of points where kongo could of broke away and should of stood up and back, instead he tried to wrestle a king of wrestling.

gbone Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:03:13 from    

Cain’s a takedown master. That was pure wrestling…but he could have had the arm bar about a dozen times. He needs to work on his jiu jitsu and striking. But what a beast for being so one-dimensional.

SEAN_VANCE Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:04:12 from    

WOW, Cain Velazquez aped him…..Give him another round COngo would be dead…that was jsut pride keeping him from quiting….what a beating, didnt think that would happen

denniskuderjr Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:06:24 from    

now wheres all the kongo nut huggers at?????

Murrell Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:06:46 from    

Thank’s Bruno!!!

St Pierre Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:20:16 from    

Heart of a Mexican… Heart of Warrior… I actually felt bad for Kongo at the End of the 3rd round…

g-bone Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:20:35 from    

Awesome takedown & control but passed up about a dozen arm bar opps. If his jiu jitsu was better he’d be willing to take more risks on top. He was afraid of the reversal and was way too conservative.

Murrell Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:26:16 from    

Cain needs to learn how to use elbows.

upinsmoke83 Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:32:55 from    

Valesquez is not yet ready to fight top competition, Kongo is awesome on the feet but this fight shows how weak his td defense and ground game are. You can never be a serious contender with such an obvious weakness. All this and he still could have won this fight.

Throne Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:48:55 from    

Frustrating to watch because Kongo seemed to have such an upper hand during stand-up, but very good competition overall…if both continue to win, I’d say it’d be worthy of a rematch.

rocco55 Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:52:25 from    

Cheik Congo has no clue on the bottom. The only succesful way he got up was by using the cage.

HeroKill Says, in 6-13-2009 at 20:57:36 from    

Thats good and all but….whats he goung to do against a guy like brock lol, kongo at least had standup… this fight pissed me off lol
I want someone to eff up brock soon

Drew Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:12:08 from    

Kongo has so much potential. If he can just work exclusively on takedown defense and getting back to his feet, this guy is unstoppable. Unfortunately, every loss in the UFC has exposed that weakness.

sterling Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:22:16 from    

Carwin will own this man.

poopman Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:22:28 from    

cain will be like gonzaga. a good up & comer, gets a title shot, loses.

whitey_rolls Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:26:54 from    

I agree with Pocketmouth, if this fight spent another couple minutes on the feet Cain woulda got Ko’d or TKO’d. As soon as he fights a striker with the ability to avoid some take downs or atleast have some ability to get back to his feet he’s going to get tooled.

bobbo Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:31:11 from    

Smart fight by Cain. I don’t see anybody that could hang with him. Carwin vs Valasquez seems eminant. Lesner is big and strong but Valasquez is one guy that he wont be able to throw around. The heavywieght division is so exciting now.

Sean Wooldridge Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:39:52 from    

Man, Congo was right where he needed to be a couple of times…in the clinch in perfect position to knee him in the nuts as per his typical game plan. Cain’s takedowns were just too quick though. I’ve been questioning Congo’s ground game ever since he fought Assuerio Silva. There’s just NOTHING there. And I’m not fond of him anyway because of the crap he pulled with Crocop.

thaddiusluster Says, in 6-13-2009 at 21:58:44 from    

obvious domination by Cain; Kongo is a bit too long & linear/lacking mass to effectively counter take-downs. He’s similarly built to Spider Silva but lacks the overall ability and fast twitch reflexes. He had some chances if only he could of kept it on the feet?

Fkin Hologram Says, in 6-13-2009 at 22:01:50 from    

damn..i aint sleepin on cain no more boy…fkn good ass wrestling displayed there and control..fkn madd relentless for a fkn heavyweight damn he gunna have a good azz career uuUUu DiGG?

wrestlingXD Says, in 6-13-2009 at 22:03:57 from    

wrestling is soooo boring to watch.. dry humping is way more fun when a girl or two is involved

Darkmetal Says, in 6-13-2009 at 22:30:22 from    

Some observations:

Kongo was far superior in standup, it was his foolish gameplan that hurt him. I am not thinking he would have won or been able to stop “Brown Pride” (I hate that tatt) but every time he connected, he seemed to hurt Valesquez. Kongo needs to improve his ground game to advance, period.

Cain, if he faces Brock Lesnar, will be destroyed in my opinion. He is a good wrestler, but Lesnar is the King. He also has punching power that is possibly greater than Kongo.

Valequez will lose badly to Lesnar when they finally match up. And I think Lesnar will defeat Mir pretty handily, so that will be the next step for Cain.

percycanfly Says, in 6-13-2009 at 23:09:23 from    

Cain isn’t who we thank he is.
Kongo had 3 weeks to prepare for him,
an Cain wasnt able to finsih or put anything agianst him.

Yeah, relentless takedowns an he put on a good hold, but i mean come on, the punches were weak an when they were standing, Kongo was a punch away.

I wanted Kongo to win. I think he’s the better fighter an i think he stands a better chance.
Cain wont beable to stand with top HW like Gonzagaga, Couture, Nog, Mir or Brock.

on tape Says, in 6-13-2009 at 23:18:24 from    

cain aint ready for the big boys yet, like carwin or brock.

Julian Says, in 6-13-2009 at 23:23:02 from    

Great win for Velasquez, but I don’t see him dominating positions against strong wrestlers like Carwin or Lesnar. Will see…

PitFighterZ Says, in 6-13-2009 at 23:39:07 from    

This fights proved 2 things:
Kongo still doesn’t have a ground game and Velasquez has a glass chin.

I don’t think Velasquez can take a more well rounded fighter like Mir or Minotauro in the good days. Fedor would assassinate him.

Lesnar vs. Velasquez will be the most boring fight of all times!

furymuffbumper Says, in 6-14-2009 at 00:28:05 from    

did anybody count how many times cain bitch tossed kongo? Good fight!! I thought cain gassed until the flury at the end…

furymuffbumper Says, in 6-14-2009 at 00:32:12 from    

why is every body up on Lesner nuts…hes had a handful of real fights….I still think he is ok…and maybe up and getting better..

PERU Says, in 6-14-2009 at 00:33:39 from    

GOOD fight for Cain he has a good future !!! but he has to practice in submision

Matamoros Says, in 6-14-2009 at 00:44:34 from    

I would like to see Junior Dos Santos against either one of these fighters, I think his stand up and Jitz would give him a chance.

oaklandblackouts Says, in 6-14-2009 at 01:12:48 from    

cain went in smart w/ the ground game to capitalize on kongo’s weakness. i appreciate the fact that he tried to stay active on the ground and not do the lay n pray s***. he put that active g&p beating as if he was a heavyweight st. pierre. he deserved that win cause he displayed how hungry he was for it.

gwizzy Says, in 6-14-2009 at 01:52:19 from    

my guess is velasquez is going to fight shane carwin next

Corey Says, in 6-14-2009 at 03:26:14 from    

im dying laughing at all you retarded nut huggers talkin about kongo’s potential, because… i didn’t see potential, I saw him rolling around like a turtle getting pounded on and begging for the bell. Lesnar = not the king. Let time tell and stop sucking his tube steak. He isnt Kimbo slice, but he isnt fedor, either. Im hoping Mir to take him. And cain, yeah, he seems to be lacking in power when it comes to the striking, but hes a phenominal wrestler, and you all seem to under play that because it was Kongo he was taking down and holding instead of some one else. Whatevs. Go Cain. He dominated Kongo because Kongo couldnt knee him in the nuts, nor could he land more then one or two punches without completing giving up his defense and being taken down. Punchers luck, thats Tank Abbott. And Kongo.

#1stunna Says, in 6-14-2009 at 03:42:55 from    

Man Congo is the bigger looser in this bout. How many times did he have the opportunity to break away and keep it on the feet where is he strongest. Yet the bump ass tries to take Cain to the ground. He lost because 1. He is stupid and 2. He has absolutely no ground game what so ever.

#1stunna Says, in 6-14-2009 at 03:46:06 from    

PitFighterZ are you blind. Kongo blasted him with his best shot and Cain still came back to win. Man, open your eyes or get a clue.

mma Says, in 6-14-2009 at 04:15:19 from    

boring…… once he fights a decent wrestler like shane carwin, or brock lesner its good night Cain because he will get KTFO if he keeps fighting like a puss

Steamer Bean Says, in 6-14-2009 at 05:34:46 from    

Velazquez changed my opinion of him tonight, though not for the better or worse. I initially thought he lacked the split second decision making ability, but he proved me wrong when he was able to get rocked and immediately go to his bread and butter and regain control, but he opened a whole new can of worms as far as things he really is lacking. He seems to have the desire and capacity to improve so once again…let’s just wait and see what he does next. And just to be clear, beating Kango was no small feat.

learn2swim Says, in 6-14-2009 at 05:57:26 from    

Cain did what he had to for the win. I’d rather see more standup but that would have landed Cain in the hospital.

Still not impressed with Cain.

Flashahhaa Says, in 6-14-2009 at 06:09:42 from    

This has to be one of the worst fights I’ve ever seen! and it was the second last fight of the night! DW should be ashamed of him self, Congo has had six years to at the very least learn some basic ground game but no, this waist of space doesn’t even know the basics, what is he doing in the UFC if he can’t even prevent someone who has, at best an average ground game from taking full mount when ever he chooses… he didn’t even try throw him off. Velasquez does not have good control it’s he only ever had one heel hook in, if he had any skills what’s so ever he could have finished with a rear naked choke or arm bar (near the end) but he didn’t because he’s s***! just wait till he goes up a level, he’s completely one dimensional. DW should be embarrassed, bring back Pride… rant over :]

420_submity Says, in 6-14-2009 at 07:53:50 from    

Caines gonna get smashed one he fights someone with ground game.

RyanMMA93 Says, in 6-14-2009 at 09:54:49 from    

Cain is very very good at his control but not as good as Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar would dominate Cain on the ground and stand up. Poor Kongo, work on your ground buddy.

AAA Says, in 6-14-2009 at 11:11:58 from    

This was by far the most exciting fight of kongo’s career.

Darkmetal Says, in 6-14-2009 at 11:17:59 from    

Did anyone notice how man “back of the head” shots that Cain leveled against Kongo without a peep from Mirgliotta? In the very least, those punches should have warranted a stand up.

“Brown Pride” will likely wind up with brown shorts laying on the mat when he faces Carwin or Lesnar. He is a good wrestler, but they are great wrestlers and each as strong as proverbial bull.

KOB Says, in 6-14-2009 at 11:39:04 from    

After Congo landed those two big shots he closed the distance and was taken down. If he stood back and landed two more hard shots, that fight would have been over.

JJ Says, in 6-14-2009 at 11:51:23 from    

Congo is such a nice person. He allways give his aponents so many chanses to win the fight. His takedown defence is one of a kind. I really think my grandmother could take him down.

Why can´t he do what he does best – legkicks and punches? I mean, his mui-thai is so good….

tonyboyles Says, in 6-14-2009 at 12:23:50 from    

now lets see cain fight shane carwin that would be a crazy fight with cain getting KTFO

marquez Says, in 6-14-2009 at 14:06:13 from    

can velasquez do this to brock or mir?That is the question.

fighter27 Says, in 6-14-2009 at 16:08:30 from    

to all the guys who said that kongo would destroyd velasques….you don´t have seen the fight kongo vs. crazy horse (i forgot his name)…he doesn´t know how to fight again wrestler/ringer.
velasques has an incredible ground controll, but he has just 6 fights. he has to improve his stand up fight and learn how to finished a fight with such a controll. if they give him time and two another good fights (not mir or lessnar), he can be the next ufc champion. at this time he has not enough experience to fight a big guy like lessnar and a expert in bjj like mir.

….but he destroys kongo and thats a message!!!

Steinmiller Says, in 6-14-2009 at 17:04:16 from    

Loved this fight and especially enjoyed watching Cain control and beat on a grounded Kongo. Cain needs to work on his standup big time but looked good everywhere else. I’d like to see Kongo vs Gonzaga next.

Steinmiller Says, in 6-14-2009 at 17:15:31 from    

This fight proved 2 things:

1. Kongo still doesn’t know how to beat a wrestler

2. Cain’s chin is suspect.

bunga Says, in 6-14-2009 at 17:24:59 from    

Like a lion attacking an elephant or a giraffe or smthn.

bigcat Says, in 6-14-2009 at 21:44:47 from    

Cain, did what he needed to do to win, he seems to be very aware of his opponents weakness. What more do you want?

Before the fight many of you guys were talking about Cain getting KTFO, now you guys think it will happen next fight…LOL sour losers

gotcrowd.com Says, in 6-14-2009 at 22:00:11 from    

HELLO! he just beat the living crap out of Congo!!! Total destruction! No chance for Congo! yea Cain may need to get better but he went RIGHT AFTER CONGO AT THE BELL! and wrecked him! Good fight!

Tom Says, in 6-14-2009 at 22:08:23 from    

If only Kongo had a ground game… He was winning the stand up, but looked lost (again) on the ground. Kongo has a hell of a heart and Cain has fantastic ground control. But his (Cain) chin doesn’t look like it’ll hold up well against a great well-rounded fighter.

kc2222 Says, in 6-14-2009 at 23:18:34 from    

mabey cain vs carwin? winner get title shot

Drummo Says, in 6-15-2009 at 01:29:21 from    

Bout time somebody whipped Congo’s ass real good.

paddedummy Says, in 6-15-2009 at 02:01:41 from    

I hope the UFC gives Kongo the boot and he signs with Dream so Crocop can get his revenge by way of kicks to the nuts, then Overeem should get the same treatment. Hopefully Gonzaga will lose again and get kicked out of the UFC so Crocop can rematch in a ring instead of the cage. I could care less about Skid Mark Pride, Carwin, Dildo Chest or Mir with there boooriing crappling.

kaobeto Says, in 6-15-2009 at 05:30:25 from    

Message to Congo: Hire a Jiu-Jitsu trainer asap.

drizzle Says, in 6-15-2009 at 09:29:17 from    

Kongo should not have clinched so damn much and timed the knee 4 the takedown. He needs to lower his center of gravity- basically work his wrestling.

awsit Says, in 6-15-2009 at 15:49:47 from    

brock would throw valasquez around all day there is like a 40 pound difference and brock is the best wrestler at hw cain would have no chance

iLL SkiLLz Says, in 6-15-2009 at 18:43:13 from    

Brock would murder him……Mir would destroy him also!!!!

Noguiera would beat him also…..

eduardo colaço Says, in 6-15-2009 at 19:23:24 from    

Nice jiu jitsu by velasques, good transitions, good shape and very conditioning, this division are inproving

diesel-power Says, in 6-19-2009 at 19:29:52 from    

Cain will be the UFC champ, maybe in a year or two but he will for sure. he is no one dimentional, he was only one dimentional for this fight, remember congo on his feet could kick lesnar ass, congo is the one dimentional.

This kid is the future of the heavy weights

Moibt Says, in 7-6-2009 at 19:47:32 from    

Congo has Zero Ground skills and Velazquez coundnt submit him. Velasquez kept the fight on the ground with strikes but couldnt knock Kongo out. Frustrating fight. We know now that Velasquez is the better wrestler but thats not saying much.
