  1. Cheick Kongo should have been in the Bellator Heavyweight Tournament. Just like Bobby Lashley and Justin Wren and Sergei Kharitonov should have been in the Bellator Heavyweight Tournament. The Bellator Heavyweight Tournament was a joke the way it was setup by Scott Coker's Bellator regime. Leave out Bellator's legitimate established heavyweights and put two known PED cheaters, Chael Sonnen and Frank Mir, who were actually suspended for PED use.

  2. The Banana Hammock King returns!!! KB and Cheick always make for an awesome interview. Can't believe he sells Medical Devices as a side job. Hard for me imagining Kongo making a sales presentation. I could never say no. Such a nice guy who can whoop you bad if he wanted to.
