    Seeing as both guys are finding relative success in Bellator, hell why not make them fight each other?

    2 former UFC fighters, one being a former LHW champ, the other being a former top contender @ HW.

    Both like to stand & trade, both hate wrestling, both have big KO power so it should make for an exciting match up.

    Kongo is by no means a big HW & Rampage has never been seen as a small LHW.
    Sure I know they train with each other, but money talks & if they make it worth their while, then I'll be happy to watch this fight.

    Good idea, yes or no?
    Or...
    Who takes it if it were to happen?

    Not too sure you exactly know who/how Kongo is.

    Kongo via wall & stall and lay & pray

    Gay Ass mods quick to move thread just cos these long time UFC fighters aren't fighting in UFC no more lol!
    & nobody ever looks @ forums other than 'UFC Discussion'
    Really did want to get a few opinions before the move

    Ever since they both joined Bellator and Rampage entertained the idea of fighting at HW, this was a fight I wanted to see. However, as it's already been mentioned they are training partners and friends.

    If Rampage wouldnt fight Newton he definitely wouldnt fight Kongo. Him vs Lavar would be fun though.

    Like people have said above they're long time training partners, all the way back to roughly around UFC 75.

    They train together and all so no fight. In hypothetical land I honestly think Rampage would really bring out the best in Kongo. You'd see Rampage looking to bully him early and then as soon as Kongo pushes back page would get pretty scared like hid did against Glover.

    So the fuck is going to happen to Newton and their LHW belt lol? Rampage won the tourney and now all he and other people have to talk about are fights against James Toney and fringe HW's.

    What a slap to Bellator's face and their tourney system as much of a joke it already was. I don't even care really, it's kind of funny but what's the point then?

    Bellator does not have the depth to maintain the tournaments integrity AND be a top tier UFC competitor. They can be successful and exciting with relevant tournaments, or they can attempt to go toe to toe with the big dogs, one or the other. Been saying it for years.

    Rampage is just making it worse for them than even I thought because he won't fight Newton now

    If Forrest Griffin can beat Rampage with leg kicks, then Kongo can do it as well, and that's not even getting into the wrestling he might use.

    I didn't know Kongo was a leg kicking machine, that's interesting.
