Kongo wins in round 2 by tko.
Somehow, I find this highly unlikely.
Far better fighters than Kongo haven't been able to ko,tko, or even finish Nog.
In fact, noone has.
In most cases I would have said Nog.
But considering I thought CC was going to take Gonzaga and Kongo kind of made me change my mind.Plus on top of the case is Forrest deystroying Shogun.
Don't get me wrong,I'm rooting for Nog,but with the way things are going I say Kongo takes this.If it would have been Kongo,instead of Herring who threw that head kick,he would have been able to capitalize on the situation and have taken out Nog.I see Nog trying to stand too long with Kongo because of the fact he does have a strong chin.I think this will be his downfall in this fight.He will keep the pace too slow and Kongo will win round one on the judges favor.
I say the best case scenario for Nog is he loses on a unanimous decision.While Nog has good standup and is excellent on the ground,Most his ground fighting is defensive.I don't see Nog going for the takedown,full mount,and pounding his way to victory.I think he's only going to go their if Kongo is willing.Nog has foughten fast pace fights in the past,but only if he is pushed into it.I see Kongo fighting cautiously,picking his shots and gaining the victory.
For Nog to win he has to keep this fight on the ground and he has to stay on top,or submit Kongo.If Nog makes his fight from the guard he better take Kongo out or I believe the judges are going to give Kongo the win.
