Cheick Kongo thinks Bellator should have 5-round main events like the UFC

on

Cheick Kongo (24-10-2) is set to fight Tony Johnson (10-2) at Bellator 161 and spoke with MMA Junkie to promote the fight. During the interview, Kongo stated that Bellator should have 5-round main events like the UFC has.

“It would be good (to move to five rounds) but I have no problem with three,” Kongo told MMAjunkie. “Three, five-minute rounds, we have to figure out how it goes for the best plan. More time would be better. But for me, it’s just a fight no matter how long. It’s still a fight.”

“It would be nice to be in line right away,” Kongo said. “To fight for the title would be – wow, it would be awesome. I want to fight for it not just for myself but for the fans. If they want to put me in position, they will see me win.”

Bellator 161 takes place on Friday, September 16th, at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park in Cedar Park, Texas. The prelims will air on Spike TV.com at 7:00 p.m. ET while the main card will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET.
