I hope their goal was to waste all of Kongo's momentum. Heath isn't that great a wrestler, but he certainly has what it takes to put Kongo on his back and keep him there.

The only problem is that ever since Herring waffled Nakao, he thinks he's a hot shit kickboxer. Which he definitely is not. If he's dumb and stands he'll get knocked out. If he's smart he can take a shutout decision.

Herring has signed the paperwork.....but Kongo who is currently training with Rampage and other fighters in California has yet to accept the deal. He and his management are exploring the opportunities as they see Herring as a catch fight. If he wins...he should......if he losses then he was overrated!!

If he signs it will be over the next 3 days.

I see it as a "how bad is his ground game" fight. Hope he signs I think Herring will take this.

What i've heard and what i've seen of herring are two different things. If he stands with congo(i think he will) he is toast. Plus congos takedown defense has improved imesnsely. his ground game still sux but at least he can try to keep it standing
