It’s enough that Crooklyn from Tapout Radio, Maggie Hendricks from Yahoo! Sports and all those chicks at GalsGuideToMMA think Cheick Kongo is the hottest human to ever grace the octagon. Damn him and his perfectly chiseled chest, ripped abs, toned arms, smooth skin, illustrious fashion sense and alluring French accent. If you never used a cheat code to beat Grand Theft Auto 3 and participated in a few of those ‘Race for the Cure’ marathons, when you die, God will reincarnate you as Cheick Kongo. That’s your reward for doing a lifetime of good and not using a magnifying glass to roast ants and small beetles (that means you’re out).
Unfortunately tonight, Cheick Kongo’s fascination with Travis Browne’s shorts resulted in a draw. Kongo was deducted a point for grasping onto Browne’s shorts in the second round and continued to do so throughout the fight. That sole point made it 28-28 on all the judges cards and it left a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth which can only be remedied by drinking a bottle of Rolling Rock.
Travis Browne, on the other hand, can sleep well tonight knowing that his perfect record is not blemished. Travis Browne’s shorts prevented him from losing at UFC 120, and for that sole reason, he should frame those things — or sell them for an extraordinary amount on eBay.
