Hunt TKO's Kongo in 1st with impressive fashion

by Maggie Hendricks | source:

Mark Hunt made his name in combat sports in Japan, as he was a well-known and credentialed kickboxer. He thanked the Japanese fans with a quick knockout of Cheick Kongo at UFC 144.

The two tentatively felt each other out, but when Kongo came inside, Hunt met him with a huge left that sent Kongo flying. Kongo returned to his feet, then Hunt threw a right-left combo that wobbled his opponent. He followed it with uppercuts until Kongo's legs fell out from underneath him. The bout was stopped at 2:11 in the first round.

"Hunt's not a weirdo. He's Samoan.A Samoan Kiwi who lives in Australia. It's like a perfect storm of not giving a fuck.I guarantee the post fight interview is far far more intimidating to him than the fight itself. While he's obviously a very confident man, it's not in his culture to talk endlessly about how good he is. Most Samoans I know are like that."exactly, kiwis and islanders are always like that, im an aussie and we are a bit like that too but pacific islanders even more sothe more u talk em up the more modest and shy they become

Are those extra couple punches really necassary to make it a "good stoppage"?
