I don't buy the Shawn Jordan hype. I've seen his last 6 or so fights & think he's been good against subpar competition. He's strong & athletic but his standup & wrestling are average. A lot is being said about Komgos chin but he's 3-1-1 in his last 5, with all 5 opponents being better than anyone Jordan has faced. I see Jordan having a problem with Kongos superior striking & reach, and if he is able to close the distance being outmatched in the clinch game, eating knees and elbows. If it turns into a grappling match Kongo is much more dangerous in top position than Jordan is. I agree that Kongos on his way out, but i think he gets a win here before being fed to better prospects in the next few years.
Also will play Kongo by DEC if the price is juicy
Thoughts?

Your logic is sound. I don't know much about Jordan, I'll probably youtube him.

I bet Jordan, but its more of a fade on Kongo, he just looks spent and old last few fights. I like the kid....but who knows.

I'm having a hard time understanding why he is the dog here.

And I have thought Kongo was overrated for years...
