    I don't know this fighter well enough to really make an intelligent comment, but judging from his record, he seems a bit like a One Hit (pun intended) Wonder.

    His monster KO of Cro Cop was the shot of the year, but the fire works pretty much ended there.

    On a side note: I always thought it was pretty considerate of Cro Cop not to demand a rematch, many of MMA's big ego's demand them, to patch up their messy record to that L

    he prettymuch came in with a bang and then just lost it. I dont understand why he did not work on his takedowns more, to compliment his BJJ.

    Yeah you almost never see him on the ground. I figured this was just a matter of time.

    His quote seems to imply that he's had it with competitive MMA.

    Perhaps back to South America for some BJJ tournaments?

    What? So no Strikeforce or anything else? Just give up and go back to Brazil? No wonder why he's done.

    He started off strong vs carwin, he just made the mistake of trying to finish to quickly and get caught by one of those mac trucks carwin calls fists.

    It works out nicely for gonzaga to go back to bjj, cuz then even when he's not wearing a gi he's wearing a gi.

    Well keep in mind that these days with the level of high level fighters anybody can go out of the ufc quick. I mean the sport has evolved so fast. I think they should fire Tito too. I tink Tito is more after the money he just got paid 250k for his fight against Hamill

    but his name alone garners money for them, he's among the best known names in the biz, possibly the highest.

    can any one tell me how cheick kongo still has a job in the ufc in my mind he is far worse than gonzaga and should have been fired long ago before jardine even. whats the deal here,

    How many consecutive losses does he have?

    Kongo has been pretty sucessful in the UFC. He will never be a champ but he has a better record than Gonzaga or Jardine. I agree that Tito needs to go to. His last win was against Shamrock…about 5 fights ago. I don't believe that he has won in his last 5 fights, including the tie. He should be canned.

    kongo is 15-6-2

    gonzaga is 11-6

    keith jardine is 15-9-1

    It's easy to see who's doing the best out of those 3.
