Kongo vs Mullet Man?

I dunno what the fuck is up with this:

Sources within Justin McCully’s camp have confirmed the heavyweight missed a Wednesday deadline to accept a fight with French kickboxer Cheick Kongo at UFC 81 on Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Hey, I’m not surprised that Justin McCully hasn’t accepted the fight … he’s probably too busy perming his mullet or eating whatever fatty shit you have to eat to look like he does. I’m just amazed that Cheick Kongo went from potentially fighting Big Nog for the belt to Justin McFucking Cully.

The Fight Network also tries to sell McCully as some kind of big deal:

McCully (8-3-2), meanwhile, has not lost a fight in more than seven years. He made his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 9 in April, as he secured a unanimous decision victory over Dutch kickboxer Antoni Hardonk – a man who mirrors Kongo in many respects.

Ooh, he hasn’t lost in seven years? Wow. Well, it would be impressive if the guy had fought more than 4 times in the past seven years. And the two guys he beat recently outside of the UFC? A guy with a 3-9 record and freaking Warpath. Never mind the fact that his win over Antoni Hardonk was perhaps the sloppiest, shittiest fight I’ve seen this year.

All in all, a fight with McCully is a pretty shitty reward for beating Mirko Crocop. The last guy who did that got a title shot against Randy Couture. Now Kongo gets a big fat mullet man who doesn’t even belong in the UFC in the first place? Weak.

Of course, this just goes to show you that we’re not the only people with doubts about Kongo’s ground game. Joe Silva wouldn’t have booked this if he didn’t think it was a good test of Kongo’s ground game. But for fuck’s sake, Joe … don’t you have any decent ground fighters at Heavyweight who aren’t banal lay-n-prayers???

    WTF is up with Justin McCully having a say on who he fights? I thought that was a privilege for the fighters that have actually proven themselves! Now this nobody gets a chance to fight a guy that is coming from the biggest win of his mma career and he turns it down????? What a lame excuse for a fighter. Back to the minor leagues you ugly bastard.

    McCully has been on Inside MMA a few times and seemed a little too outspoken to me for someone with such a poor fight resume. I’d love to watch him fight Cheick Kongo.

    P.S. He didn’t have a mullet nor did he really look all that fat on Inside MMA. Do you guys not get HDNet in canadialand or what? Now you just look like a jackass for referencing an old sherdog photo.

  • Andrej

    Christian Wellisch …..oh he lost to Kongo. How about Mario Neto or Jeff Monson.

  • fightfan


    FIGHTLINKER aint skeered to say exactly how it is. Yeah McCully sucks, CHECK. The fight with Hardonk was the shittiest or sloppiest fight this year, CHECK. McCully is a nobody who beat a couple nobodies outside the ufc in the psat 7 years, CHECK.

    Although FL forgot to mention that no one would of ever even heard of J McCully if it werent the fact that he lives far inside Tito Ortiz’s ass!

  • fightlinker

    He had the mullet during his only UFC fight

    As for why I didn’t watch Inside MMA with Justin McCully … because it was Inside MMA with Justin McCully!

  • fightfan

    I like how McCully sys that he “missed” the deadline to accept the fight….

    Thr truth being he was hiding in wait until after that date so he wouldnt look like such a pussy for turning down a fight!!!!

  • kentyman

    McCully is scared of Kongo, CHEICK!

  • fightfan

    Justin is lucky to even have ONE fight in the UFC. I dont remember who Hardonk was SUPPOSED to fight , BUT McCully was a LAST MINUTE replacement for Hardonk to fight.

    So McCully is lucky someone got injured at last minute and he was avaliable….otherwise, McCully would not even have a fight at all in the UFC!!!!!

    FIGHTLINKER, who was Hardonk originally supposed to fight??? I know for sure that it was not McCully , and that he was a replacement.

  • Zheroen

    Fuck the Emelianenko brothers, Barnett, Hunt, Couture….the UFC’s heavyweight division has Justin McCully!!!!

  • fightfan

    Dana and the UFC better check their arrogance or the UFC’s HW divison will again be barren.

    They had better be careful or they will lose Arloski, Cro Cop , as well as Couture. And in a year or so they will all be following Fedor and the UFC’s HW will be a joke of a division

  • robnashville

    personally I’m waiting for that Justin McCully vs Jake O ‘Brien barnburner.

    I think i would rather jab a fork in both eyes than have to watch those two hook it up.

  • fightlinker

    We actually joked about Jake and Justin fighting a few months back:

  • DannyP72

    Justin McCully – the fighter so good that he almost got arm barred by a dutch kick boxer

  • fightfan

    Come on FL……..Throw up some news/posts

    Even if they about fat cats and toy rc cars!!!!!

  • matt (tapout name shitstain)

    Does tito and rampage train at the same place or at different spots in big bear?

  • fightlinker

    same place but different times. Big Bear is used as a training camp for lotsa fighters who are there whenever. Tito doesn’t live there and probably only spends about 3 weeks there before a fight or so.

    At least as far as i know

  • Swedish guy

    The one fighter I’d love to see in the UFC HW division is Mark Hunt – that guy is damn tough and could be a force to reckon with, at least against guys like kongo – he’d totally expose kongos ground game. Because obviously we aren’t going to see either fedor or barnett and i truly believe Hunt is the best of the rest – except of course for Couture and the guys the UFC is losing, like arlovski and crocop.

  • Andrej

    ^ What are you smoking? Andre Arlovski said he is comeing back to the UFC and said he was talking. CroCrop lost his bouts with Gabriel Gonzaga and Chiek Kongo. Giving the UFC two legit fighters so it wasn’t all a big loss he is going. But Randy Couture leaving sucks ass major.

  • Swedish guy

    I’ve been smoking mainly Lucky Strike silver, but sometimes I go for Camel Lights as well (remind of my ex-girlfriend at christmas time, see Hefner – The hymn for the cigarettes for further reference) but anyways, you can believe what you want – I’m not overly sure that in half a year from now Crocop and Arlovski are on the UFC roster.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah if i were a betting man, I wouldn’t bet that Arlovski will still be fighting in the UFC come July

  • Andrej

    Well I might take that bet and say your wrong fightlinker if I were a betting man. Arlovski will sign a contract and will fight till 2008 might even sign a 3 fight extension.
