Gonzaga would school Kongo. Not sure why Kongo thinks he is in the title mix, I haven't seen him beat anyone worthwhile except Cro Cop who wasn't himself anyways, lost to Herring and then beat Evensen and Al-Turk, who are they?
People might be able to make the same argument for Gonzaga. Who else has he defeated besides Cro Cop? (but I will say that Gonzaga definitely received plenty of style points for finishing him instead of taking him to a decision like Kongo)
Gonzaga lost to Couture and Werdum, and then beat McCully and Hendricks. After losses to Couture and Werdum, a lot of people now think that Gonzaga is an amazing fighter until his opponents start to fight back.
Granted, I do think that Gonzaga would win in a fight against Kongo.
Anyway, I don't hate the decision the UFC is making, but rather it is unfortunate that there is not as much depth in the HW division to make a clear cut #1 contender. (Ex. Fitch winning 8 in a row, Alves 7 in a row, Florian 5+ in a row, etc...).
