Sometimes heavyweight fights end with a devastating knockout in emphatic fashion leaving every fan in an arena on their feet.

Then sometimes there is Cheick Kongo vs. Shawn Jordan.

Unfortunately the two heavyweights featured on the main card at UFC 149 on Saturday night weren’t gunning for any post fight bonuses. If anything they were barely standing when the fight ended, but it had nothing to do with the punishment they doled out to one another in the cage.

For the better part of 15-minutes the two lumbering heavyweights pushed each other against the cage looking for the better position with Kongo generally staying dominant, but doing no real damage.

The restless crowd in Calgary tried with great might to boo their way into forcing either Kongo or Jordan to back away and engage a bit more, but neither was deviating from their ‘strategy’.

Kongo had a few fleeting moments of real control when he dragged Jordan to the ground early in the fight, but for the majority of the time he was content keeping the fight pushed against the cage and going for pitter-patter punches.

When the fight was over the judges mercifully gave the fight to Kongo, but not without a collective sigh of relief from the crowd that what they just witnessed was finally done.

Even UFC President Dana White got in on the act tweeting out ‘Boooooo!’ after watching an extremely lackluster fight from both heavyweights.
