Its deeper than that though, Cro cop had plenty of opportunities to nail Kongo in the side with his left leg. He was just gun shy after getting knocked out. It happens to all fighters.
I have no doubt that a cro cop of a year ago would taken out kongo easily. But cro cop is coming to the end of his career as the top. I dont think he will mentally recover.
