Here is the play-by-play from Kongo vs. Nelson:
Nelson catches a kick an immediately tries to take him down. Nelson has him clinched against the cage and is working for a takedown. Referee Kevin Mulhall of Gian Villante infamy separates them for some reason. No biggie for “Big Country,” as he clobbers Kongo with a vicious overhand right. Lights out, Kongo.
