    Looks like Mirko didn't sign to fight Overeem, but bizarrely for Hong Man Choi.

    and for those that can't read Korean (neither can I)

    It looks like Cro Cop finally has an opponent for Fields Dynamite!! 2008, and his name isn’t Alistair Overeem or Badr Hari. You might want to sit down for this…it’s Hong Man Choi. DreamFighters.com got the scoop, and it was later announced on the official K-1 Korea website.
    DreamFighters.com has learned from a close FEG official that Mirko Crocop will be taking on Hong Man Choi at Fields Dynamite. K-1 Korea Official has just confirmed this.
    It has not been confirmed on FEG North America as of now. We will bring more confirmation and sources soon.
    According to Dream Fighters, Cro Cop’s camp has yet to confirm the fight, and considering Japan tends to jump the gun from time to time on fight announcements, this one might not be a 100% done deal. Nevertheless, it’s definitely not one they’d shy away from, so Cro Cop vs Hong Man Choi is probably what we’re going to get come NYE.

    As ridiculous as this is, I’m actually sitting here wondering if Cro Cop can beat Hong Man Choi. You would think, but Cro Cop’s not quite what he used to be.
    Anyways, it’s probably not what you were hoping for, but, hey, at least you’ll be drunk! Happy New Year’s from FEG!

    [UPDATE 12/11/08 2:00AM ET]
    - The official DREAM website is confirming (via DreamFighters.com) Mark Hunt will be facing Jerome Le Banner, but it won’t be under K-1 rules, it will be a mixed martial arts match. The funny thing is that Croatian new article said Le Banner was going to fight Cro Cop, but the elbow injury he sustained at the K-1 World GP finals would likely prevent him from being ready. That’s Japan for ya.



    Let the talk of ducking begin.

    man Lebanner vs Crocop would have been a great MMA match. Crocop vs HMC is so meh, I really don't care about anything involving Hong Man Choi, either in K1 or in MMA.

    very plausible. If kongo could stalk his way straight through CroCop, i see no reason HMC cant until CC proves it ovtherwise.

    I'm picking HMC just because I haven't seen the killer instinct in Cro Cop's eyes in years and I have lost faith in him.

    Agreed, LeBanner would be a much more exciting opponent. Somebody would get KO'd.

    HMC will probably win, but it means little to me. He doesn't fit into any important weight division in MMA, does anyone care about Super Heavyweight?

    Yeah I agree he has a decent chance of winning because he's pretty much unKOable and that's Crocop's bread and butter, I just don't much care to watch HMC fight.
