Matt Mitrione vs. Cheick Kongo: Who do you got?

Matt Mitrione finally faces the biggest test of his young career. I wrote a few weeks ago on Fight Opinion that I didn't think it was in Mitrione's best interest to fight a Cheick Kongo or a Frank Mir. But the more I've thought about it, this is a very winnable fight for Meathead. 

His weaknesses -- ground game and takedown defense -- won't be exposed all that much by Kongo, who wants to win the fight on his feet. Add in that Kongo has looked mediocre it best in his last few fights and it seems Mitrione does have a legitimate chance to move to 6-0 and move his way up to title contention. 

If I had to chose, I'd say Matt Mitrione by KO. What do all of you think?
