    Ken Imai, Mirko Cro Cop's agent recently admitted that he turned down an offer to fight K-1 Superstar Semmy Schilt under MMA rules at Dream 1.
    "In DREAM first fight, I reject some matchmake plan," Imai told Kamipro Magazine. This is not Mirko's but my decision. For example, I said no about Mirko vs Semmy Schilt (MMA rules). For Mirko's "Dream" first match, Semmy is too hard."

    Cro Cop recently defeated Tatsuya Mizuno at Dream 1 in a dominant performance punctuated by an excellent display of boxing from the already gifted kick boxer.

    I read that Semmy said no to the fight because at the time it was only like 2 weeks away.

    They turned down Mighty Mo too if I remember correctly.

    I just went back and checked. It was Ray Sefo that turned down the fight.

    Ya wtf would crocop wanna fight a guy a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier. Why anybody agrees to fight Schilt outside of a tournament is beyond me.

    CroCop is coming off too bad losses... Wanting a few "tune-up" fights is very understandable imho.

    Fuck that, I would have too.

    Schilt is a bad match up fro Cro Cop. And it doesn't' have anything to do with how good he is. Schilt is a monster for any striker to beat just because of his size.
