"I would be honored to fight Cheick Kongo. I think that would be a lot of fun to throw down. I think it would be a lot of fun to fight somebody of that caliber. Somebody that has legendary stand-up, has a wrestling game to them, has a good ground-and-pound game. I think it would be fun. I think it would be a real trip to get in there and see how well I can fare against him. I respect the hell out of him. I've met him several times, and he's always been extremely cool and very, very polite. I think it would be a lot fun."

Mitrione wouldn't see him as very polite during the fight. Kongo likes to play dirty.

I honestly think Mitrione has improved at incredible levels and could possibly win the stand up with Kongo. But, he might fail to defend against Kongo's strength and end up getting his face smashed by ground and pound.

"Legendary Stand-Up"

I think Meathead means "Technical stand-up"

Meathead still needs to work on keeping his hands up and working on head movement, as seen with the beltran fight.

Only problem is Kongo doesnt pressure people like that.
