Rising heavyweight star Cheik Kongo is coming off of a huge upset victory over Croatian mma legend Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic. IrishWhipFighting.com recently caught up with him to discuss a variety of topics. Below are some of the highlights from that conversation:
Kongo On His Ground Game:
I got nothing to prove. All those who know me know I’m a great wrestler. I’m not bjj but I’m great. Nobody knows me like my training partners and my coach, so shut up! Hahaha!
Kongo On Confirming A Possible Fight With Nogueira:
I will confirm this when I got the contract signed…lol…be patient.
Kongo On Steroids:
These kinds of fighters aren’t the real fighters or real men. This kind of product hurts their body and many fighters think that they can be better than their opponents [if they use steroids]. Bullshit…no guts, no glory.
