[VIDEO] Cheick Kongo, Fashion King of Los Angeles

Cheick Kongo owns and operates a high-end clothing boutique in Los Angeles called FragoLA. I’ve got nothing clever to say about that right now because that true statement is pretty weird and awesome sounding on it’s own, isn’t it?

Kongo has always gone for a minimalist type of style (think, his vale tudo shorts, necklace and wire-rimmed glasses weigh-in uniform) so I suppose it makes sense that the former UFC heavyweight has chosen to invest in a store selling the latest seasonal offerings from expensive designers. Ok, it doesn’t really make sense but it is a hell of juxtaposition – A bear-voiced 240 pound professional fighter asking little Angelino women if they are finding everything alright – so, check out the video above, if only for the novelty of it all.

Karyn Bryant models some of FragoLA’s finest while interviewing Kongo in the store. I won’t say the interview is bad, I just couldn’t understand much of what was going on. Neither could Bryant.

Kongo shadily refuses to reveal how he keeps prices so low on his men’s and women’s designer duds and, for some reason, talks a lot about how he is black. I’d personally never before noticed that he was.

Kongo’s accent and weird “humor” make for an awkward sit-down. Any tater that gets through all sixteen minutes gets a special place in my heart and a shout-out in my next event live-blog.

So, in conclusion, Cheick Kongo owns and operates a high-end clothing boutique in Los Angeles called FragoLA. Wow.

GAWDAMMIT who wrote this shit? It so bad it makes me want to steal the garbage from the local needle exchange and dump it out in a bathtub full of broken fluorescent light bulbs and battery acid then dive in and roll around. Then I will hose off the bloody melted skin with kerosene.

Bravo, Jason Collins! Bravo, Cheick Kongo! It takes courage to openly be yourself.

So does this make Cheick Kongo the first openly gay fighter in the UFC?

Also, don't miss FragoLA's infamous Two-fer Tuesdays, were you get two kicks in your two balls with every purchase!

Not to be confused with FraggleFresno or ForeheadHB, neither of which would ever be considered "high-end". Although many do refer to DiazStockton as "high-end", but I think it has a totally different meaning.
