Kongo will win first round GNP. His wrestling is better, and Velasquez doesn’t have kicks/knees in his arsenal. Velasquez is a strong up and comer, but he’s not ready for the likes of Kongo. Kongo if he can beat Carwin, is due for a title shot. Not sure if he is a good enough all around fighter to take/keep the title though, maybe in a few years.[/quote]
I seriously…SERIOUSLY…doubt that Kongo will GNP Velasquez. I usually give you the benefit of a doubt…but you didn’t do your homework on this one. Velasquez is a former 2x All-American wrestler(Arizona State…teammates with C.B. Dolloway and Ryan Bader)…and JC national champ.
No way Kongo has better wrestling…no way. Oh and Velasquez does have kicks(decent low kicks,imo) and knees…but he shouldn’t stray to far away from his bread and butter. Especially against Kongo.
