Mirko Vs. Choi Set! Hari’s Punishment

Mirko CroCop Vs. Choi Hong Man

From MMA-ID.com:

So how do I feel about this fight? I already told you that I’m excited and it’s really a problem for me to accept this fight with only 14 days left to go. I’ve been training hard after my last fight and I’m ready to face the Korean giant. When you fight the opponent of that size, you just have to take the fight very seriously. Under MMA rules he’s not experienced, but he’s big and strong and that makes him dangerous.

It seems like this will be under MMA rules, which is good.

Badr Hari’s Punishment

You can read about the punishment here. The most interesting part is:

Regarding a possible suspension of Hari, K-1 management indicated that a new rule may be implemented next year for possible suspension of fighters for DQ fouls in fights.

Tanigawa also talked a little about Ishii during the press conference. He said that it is disappointing that Ishii, who he thinks is the future of Japanese MMA, will fight overseas. However, he said that the persuasion to get Ishii will continue.

    Ishii and Akiyama should stay with Dream, and help it gain popularity so it can gather entrance from other fighters and fan to help stabalize it as a MMA super power. instead, if the big draws in Japan start leaving to the UFC then they will risk gradually killing off Dream and other companies.

    You think like Tanigawa, he said that while he thinks that having a dream is wonderful, there is a much bigger mission (considering the state of Japanses MMA).

    Under mma rules is good? not for crocop.

    Hari lost his head for a minute. FEG (yes FEG; k1 is an event’s name)suspending him wouldn’t help him or the k1 event.

    Yeah, its good. The match will be more interesting and I rather see Choi in MMA rules from now on, rather than K-1 rules.

    Dynamite!! is an event name. K-1 is a promotion. FEG is the parent company. Think Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group which owns several movie studios: Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, DisneyToon Studios, Touchstone Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Miramax Films, and Disneynature. FEG is the parent company for promotions K-1 and DREAM. Now quit trying to correct/educate people with misinformation.
