i think kongo would be out of his element in every area of the fight, not to mention kongo has very little ko power in his arsenal. Gonzaga is a beast until you hurt him at that point he steadily loses steam... i dont think kongo can hurt him. Eventually it will hit the ground and gonzaga will probably sub him.

Kongo vs Lesnar after Coleman.

For Gonzaga (maybe Mir, or Vera after Verdum)
---Honestly I really would like to see Arvloski vs Gonzaga...but that is no longer an option. Maybe Heering?

I think that'd be a decent matchup as far as rankings go. I'd probably have to take Kongo. Gonzaga going fetal in his last fight showed he was easy to overwhelm. Kongo would take it to him and win via TKO.

Why do you say that. Because of rankings?

Because it looks like Arlovski is out of the UFC.

It seems like a sensible fight i think gonzaga would take it though, he seems more well rounded to me

makes sense, i think gonzaga destroys though, but the fight makes sense for both right now.

no it would be a boring fight. Kongo vs Vera would be better or Kong vs Sylvia. I mean Sylvia did call him out.

It would be over very quick. Either GG would sub Kongo in 4.5 seconds or Kongo would TKO GG if he hit him.

either at ufc 86 or 87 kongo will fight slyvia and eddie sanchez will fight gonzaga next and mir will fight either herring or arlovski if he is still in the ufc

GG would win hands down Kongo couldn't deal with his striking or his ground game he isn't devoloped enough in either categorie I wouldnt mind seeing Mir against GG though bet it would be a badas battle on the ground.

Interesting fight..though Gonzaga just has more skills...Kongo is more athletic I think though...but I don't seem him contending too well against Gonzaga

Lol after the Cro Cop fight all I heard was how good Kongo's striking was. Not from you but from other posters....I told everyone lol.

What about Eddie Sanchez vs. Gonzaga....... Gonzaga is coming off back to back loses..... Eddie is coming off a ko win. I think this might be a good fight.

Kongo would destroy Gonzaga only for the simple fact Kongo has heart plus he's a kickboxer. He'd hit Gonzaga hard early which would make Gabriel fold and then be an early TKO finish IMO.

I couldn't disagree more. I really think Kongo is where he is in the UFC simply because he posted a win over a totally out-of-sorts Mirko Cro Cop. Had CC been on his game, maybe taken some prozac before the fight and had he won, Kongo would fold back into relative B-level obscurity where he belongs.

Now we can all go back to eating our freedom fries.

I wouldnt mind seeing that fight. Kongo showed improved ground game his last fight, but still not even close to Gonzaga. I think if this fight happened Gonzaga by armbar 1st round.

Gonaga is well rounded...but if he gets hurt..it seems like he looks for a way out...I dont know who I would take in this..

Probably Gonzaga by rnd 2 Sub....but I dont know

This fight would be a good one. Both of these guys are decent strikers. it acctually might go Kongos way, until Gonzaga took him down and GnP his ass. TKO gonzaga 1st Rnd

I think that either guy can win on any given night by any given method.



EDIT: Sorry guys, I'm practicing for a run for political office.
