Cheick Kongo KOs Pat Barry in Comeback KO of All Time nominee

source: The Underground


One of the most shocking endings in UFC history took place in the main event of Sunday night's UFC Live card, as Pat Barry appeared to poised to knock Cheick Kongo out with several brutal punches -- only to have Kongo recover and knock Barry cold with a brutal uppercut of his own.

This looked like something choreographed for a movie, not a real mixed martial arts competition.

At the 2:15 mark of the first round, Barry connected with a huge right hook to the side of Kongo's head, knocking Kongo sprawling to the canvas.

Kongo should give half that KO money to Barry, cause you know if he didn't come to fight, neither would Kongo. Crazy fight. Wish Barry played it smarter. I'd like to see a rematch, but the UFC heavyweight division is a bit dry at the top, so I'm sure they'll push Kongo up. Maybe a Mir rematch. Maybe Barry vs Hunt next for him, battle of 2 of the shortest UFC heavyweights. Would be slick.

Amazing fight, it reminded me of the second boxing match between Kendall Holt vs. Ricardo Torres.

I know it sounds cliche but this is why I watch MMA, anything can happen, this is just another example. Incredible fight, probably the craziest comeback I've ever seen or can remember seeing. Although Silva vs Sonnen was a good one too, but its different, Silva slapped on the triangle, KOs seem so much

this thread should be changed to the "i am still mad that they didnt crown gray maynard the LW champ when he KO'd edgar 13 times in one round., or why isnt BJ penn the WW champ cause he beat gsp to a pulp in round one of thier first meeting, why isnt steroid boy Phael the champ, or why isnt hendo MW champ he layed on anderson the whole first round. why isnt the GRIM rodgers the GOAT he had Emelianenko in la la land"
