MMA Fighting reports that Kongo has fulfilled his current UFC contract and will not return after turning down a new contract prior to his most recent appearance.
Prior to his bout against Jordan, the French-born fighter was knocked out in the first round (yet again), this time to heavy-handed Mark Hunt at UFC 144.
Kongo also has notable losses to current 265-pound champ Cain Velasquez and former titleholder Frank Mir. During his seven-year tenure with the promotion, Kongo amassed an 11-6-1 record which includes wins over Mirko Filipovic, Matt Mitrione and Pat Barry.
Whether or not another promotion will take a chance on the 37-year old, remains to be seen. In this week alone, there have now been a total eight fighters removed from the UFC roster.
Anyone here think Kongo can succeed on the regional circuit?
