Alright, so it wasn’t the most exciting heavyweight fight that we’ve witnessed. The first round consisted of Kongo and Mitrione circling each other until the entire crowd at the Mandalay Bay starting making loud vocal noises that most humans call a ‘boo.’ Eventually Kongo went for a few jabs and the fight finally began. Well, sort of. The second round began much like the first except both fighters were a tad bit more vicious in their striking. The third round started, and within a minute Cheick Kongo took Meathead down to the ground, something that I expected he would do right from the start. If Kimbo Slice had the ability to take Mitrione to the ground, then it seemed rather obvious Kongo would go for it.
In the end, Cheick Kongo grabbed a unanimous decision over Matt Mitrione and just became the only person in the UFC to hand Meathead a loss on his 5-1 record.
