You already know that Cheick Kongo’s fists could rearrange the universe at will. That’s a scientific fact. Physicists in some university you’ve never heard of spent your tax dollars coming to that conclusion. Someone should have just told them to look at his UFC Live fight against Pat Barry as evidence. Forget what you’ve heard over the years, Cheick Kongo vs. Pat Barry is the greatest comeback in UFC history. Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow was cool, Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen was fun, Pete Sell vs. Scott Smith was entertaining, Doomdsday Johnson vs. Dennis Hallman was epic, Gray Maynard vs. Frankie Edgar was expected — but on June 26, 2011 inside the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, warlock magic happened. It was as if prior to the fight, Kongo made a pact with a necromancer to retain his consciousness for an entire round, regardless of the physical onslaught his body received.
It’s time that you watch the resurrection of Cheick Kongo once again. The UFC is offering Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo for absolutely free leading up to his UFC 149 match with Shawn Jordan. You’re just a click away from reliving Barry vs. Kongo — and it’s impossible not to watch it again. Good ahead and try to resist it. That’s right, your willpower is low young padawan.
