"My take on it is that it was something of a simple, honest mistake. He looked to me like he was reaching between Browne’s legs looking to get a position for a high-crotch or something, but just coming away with a handful of shorts each time.”
Wolfslair Muay Thai coach Dave Jackson (via Fighters Only) doesn't believe Cheick Kongo is a dirty fighter. Kongo was deducted a point in his bout at UFC 120 with Travis Browne that could've won him the fight. Referee Marc Goddard took away the point when his warnings of repeated short grabbing were ignored by the French fighter. Instead of a win for Kongo, the fight ended up being a 28-28 draw on all three judges' scorecards. This isn't the first time Kongo has been accused of being a dirty fighter. In his win over Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 75, Kongo was able to land multiple knees to the groin without getting penalized. Do you give Kongo the benefit of the doubt? Or do you think the UFC vet has gone too far?
