Not entirely true but I see what you're saying and I will concede that Kongo fought like an idiot
Two things came out of that fight. First, Kongo's ground game is so bad its scarey. So utterly devoid of skill that his rise from mediocrity can only be attributed to the UFC helping him via sub-par fighters. Lastly, Kongo is doomed at HW. He has power but his striking is not good enough to save him from getting taken down and destroyed, and yes, he will get destroyed.
