When Cheick Kongo Pulled Off The Greatest Comeback In UFC History With Epic KO

Cheick Kongo's stunning victory over Pat Barry is still regarded as one of the greatest comebacks in UFC history.

Kongo scored a massive knockout win at UFC Live: Kongo vs. Barry after surviving two brutal knockdowns in the first round.

Barry dropped Kongo with a looping right hand. He then immediately jumped on him and landed some devastating strikes with referee Dan Miragliotta watching on but refusing to stop the heavyweight bout.

Kongo then got back to his feet but was dropped for a second time with another crushing right hand and did the chicken dance.

The towering-French fighter admitted he didn't see anything when he was inside the Octagon.

"I didn't see anything. I couldn't imagine what's going on," he said.

"I just remember saying, 'Whoa, OK, he dropped me down, so something happened.' So, I had to come back quickly.

"I was decollated (decapitated), like the lift -- you know, go down and go up. When he hit me, I said, 'Whoa!' I knew I had to come back right away because I can't let him be very confident from this position.

"I can say it was lucky, but I just worked all the defence I could do for this fight. The good thing was I have a good chin."

Speaking last year, Kongo also revealed that his come-from-behind victory over Barry isn't his greatest comeback: "For me, that fight wasn't my best comeback."
