Barry vs. Kongo Wiki Update Wiki
In the main event of UFC on Versus 4, Pat Barry took on Cheick Kongo in the heavyweight division. The bout became the main event after the Nate Marquardt vs Rick Story fight was canceled, pushing the heavyweights to the top billing. Barry entered the contest 3-2 in his prior UFC matchups, while Kongo was 8-4 plus 1 draw in his UFC action.
Kongo came out and threw a low kick that was quickly countered by Barry. Barry threw a kick of his own and then one more from Kongo. Two more big low kicks thrown and landed from Kongo, plus a push kick. A huge right hand from Barry dropped Kongo, leaving him looking out for the count. Referee Dan Miragliotta was on the verge of stopping it but let Kongo hold on. Barry swarmed and when Kongo stood back up he landed another crushing blow making it almost certain that Kongo was on the verge of being knocked unconscious. Kongo got back to his feet, wobbling backwards, and as Barry went in for the kill Kongo launched perfect two-punch combination that sent Pat Barry crashing to his back. The stunning sequence wrapped up with Kongo delivering a few quick hammerfists on top of an unconscious Barry, and referee Miragliotta jumped in to stop the fight. The comeback from Kongo certainly represented one of the most wild finishes in UFC history.
The official end came at 2:39 of round one via knockout, Cheick Kongo. Speaking with Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Kongo commented, "I'm really happy... it was perfect."
