Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE
As one of the most physically intimidating fighters in UFC history, Kongo has been an asset to the promotion for over six years.
However, throughout his impressive career, the 37-year-old has never been able to win the big fight.
He lost to Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Mark Hunt and Heath Herring and produced a draw against an undefeated Travis Browne at UFC 120.
That's not to say he still can't compete at the highest level, but don't consider him anything else besides an aging heavyweight stepping stone.
In what can be regarded as the bloodiest fight in UFC history, Silva's promotional debut at UFC 146 was anything but successful.
Velasquez made Silva's black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, karate and judo look like Cracker Jack prizes.
It's hard to count out a 264-lb giant in any fight, but considering how bad he looked last time around, crowning Silva a relevant contender in the division seems silly.
